Description

Shofar is an ancient musical instrument traditionally made from ram’s horn, but can also be seen made from mountain goat, kudu, oryx, etc. horns. The word shofar and the name of mountain ram are the same root word in Semitic languages. The first mentioning of the shofar sound is encountered in the story of Sinai revelation (Exodus 19:16). There was also a tradition of announcing the beginning of a jubilee year with shofar sounds (Leviticus 25:9, 10). Shofar is a mandatory attribute of the celebration of Rosh-ha-Shana, the Jewish New Year. This is why another name of Rosh-ha-Shana in Torah is “yom teruah” or “day of trumpeting” (Numbers 29:1). Apparently, it was customary in the Biblical era customary to combine the sounds of the shofar with playing other musical instruments — trumpets, flutes, etc. (Ps. 95: 6). During mass processions, the horn was trumpeting, convening citizens (Joshua 6: 4, 12; II Sam. 15:10), sometimes the shofar announced the start of hostilities (Judg. 3:27). In the late Temple period shofar was predominantly blown inside the Temple, but after the destruction of Temple Jews started blowing shofars in synagogues during Rosh-Ha-Shana and Yom Kippur prayers.

Unusual and exotic, the Oryx shofar is handcrafted from the horn of the Oryx gazelle antelope, which is found in southern Africa. Its Afrikaans name is gemsbok and, unlike the curved ram’s horn, the Oryx horn is perfectly straight with ridges along half of its length. Like our other top quality, 100% natural and kosher shofars, the traditional manufacturing of our Oryx shofars is overseen by the rabbinate and each one is certified kosher. One important characteristic of these special Oryx shofars is that they are easy to blow.
