The shofar is the trumpet of Bible times. Used to announce the beginning of holy days such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, it was also used by ancient Jewish People at the beginning of battle. Israel¹s battle, led by Joshua, against the city of Jericho resulted in the walls of Jericho falling down at the thunderous sound of many shofars blowing at once. This small shofar is 8" to 11". Colors, textures, and finish vary in these natural animal horns but all are beautiful and have been tested to be functional before shipping.
Handcrafted Ethiopian Tallit (Prayer Shawl)
For centuries, the prayer shawl, or tallit, has been a part of Jewish worship. At the four corners are the tzitzit, long fringes that serve as a reminder to cherish and keep the Lord’s commandments as instructed in the book of Numbers. These beautiful prayer shawls are handmade by weavers among the Beta Israel in Ethiopia in the very communities we help. Colors vary and all are finely crafted garments to use and treasure as a reminder of your special help to these needy people. Dimensions: 70” x 25.5.
