The Bar-Sheshet family traces their lineage in shofar making back to 14th-century Spain. After continuing their craftmanship for several centuries in Morocco, the family arrived in Israel in 1947 and opened a workshop in Haifa where the family tradition of making extraordinary shofars was continued. Meanwhile, in Poland, a man by the name of Rabbi Yacov Rossman also began creating objects out of animal horns and soon his incredible talent became legendary throughout Poland. After immigrating to Israel in 1927 and settling in Tel-Aviv, Rossman continued his craft and taught his cousin, Avraham Ribak, the secrets of the trade. Today, the sons of Avraham Ribak and Meir Bar-Sheshet work in partnership to produce the finest shofars. With their uncompromising commitment to excellence, these magnificent horns are sought after by religious communities and collectors worldwide for their immeasurable beauty and unrivaled quality.
