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.

“Grafted-in” symbol is a Messianic Seal of Jerusalem, a symbol for Messianic Judaism and Christianity. The symbol consists of the two most well-known symbols of Judaism – Jerusalem Temple Menorah and the Star of David, as well as the ancient Christian symbol “Ichthys”, in the form of fish. “Ichthys” actually means “fish” in the Greek language, but is also the abbreviation for the Greek words “Iesous Christos Theou Uios Soter” that can be translated to English as “Jesus Christ, Son of God, [Our] Savior”. In the early days of Christianity, when it was a forbidden religion in the Roman Empire, Christians were using Ichthys pendants for the same purpose for which the cross is being used nowadays, as a secret way to express their affiliation with Christianity. It is believed that the Grafted-in seal dates the 1st century AD.
