The shofar (ram's horn) is possibly the most ancient and iconic Jewish ritual object still used today. It is traditionally blown in synagogues on Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and at the end of Yom Kippor, as well as other occasions when its distinct primal sound is used to awaken and inspire us to repentance and change. Take a look at our amazing selection of shofars (shofarot) for sale. Tradition and beauty have never looked and sounded so good!
The Jewish Shofar- A Ritual Decreed by Scripture
Judaica Webstore offers you ritual items that will help create an environment of instruction and reflection this Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. An essential part of this holiday, the Jewish shofar lets us properly observe the High Holidays and invites us to ruminate on the deeper implications of this Scripture-sanctioned practice. While the Torah does not expressly explain the significance of this ritual, Rav Sa'adyah Gaon has provided a number of rich and instructive interpretations. He describes it as a jubilant trumpet salute to G-d, our King. At the same time, he points out, it acts as a call to prayer and reflection, and even more grave, as a warning: (Ezekiel 33:4-5) "And if the listener shall hear the sound of the shofar and not be careful, then the sword shall come and take him. And if he shall be careful, then his soul has escaped." Choose a magisterial shofar horn as the centerpiece to your Rosh Hashanah celebration. Judaica Webstore offers shofars in a number of styles and sizes, including the classically shaped ram's horn (available in a variety of sizes), which retains its natural rustic finish but features a finely polished mouthpiece. Also available is the Moroccan ram's horn shofar, whose design captures the unique handicraft aesthetic of the Maghreb region (available in extra large, large, medium and small). Each shofar is a one of a kind piece that will always look and sound powerful.
In addition, we offer a number of artisan shofar stands and shofar pouches that allow you to both showcase and protect this essential object which is traditionally sounded 100 times during the Rosh Hashanah services and which serves to connect us at once with our heritage and the Word of G-d. These craft objects, made by Israel-based artisans, serve to enhance the tone of your Rosh Hashanah observance while at the same time allowing you to celebrate the contemporary visual reinterpretation of our ancient traditions.
