The Jews in Yemen, without access to the traditional Shofar horn that was obtained from rams, used instead the horn of the kudu antelope found in South or East Africa. This long spiraling horn produces a deep warm resonating tone that will echo and re-echo wherever it is blown. It is not surprising that Yemenite Shofars are no longer restricted to Jews from Yemen. They are a popular purchase throughout the year with a peak before the Rosh Hashanah season.
Judaicadosh offers you an impressive selection ranging in length from 24” to 48”. You will find a choice of polished, natural or half-half finish. Every Shofar is individually selected for appearance and sound quality. They are odor-free and have been thoroughly sterilized with a special process. Each one carries a Ministry of Health certificate that is internationally recognized. Of course, these Shofars are 100% kosher for ritual use and have been granted the appropriate Rabbinate certificate.
