Rouse your soul with the breathtaking sound of this magnificent extra-large shofar! This half-polished shofar (horn) is fashioned from a kudu (antelope) horn in accordance with the tradition of Yemenite Jews. In biblical times, the shofar was used as a call to arms and for religious purposes, such as the anointing of a new king, sounding the Sabbath, and announcing the New Moon. Today it is used during the High Holidays to call the people to spiritual reawakening and as a call for repentance. With an extraordinary sound, the shofar is blown and it urges us to look inward and make amends for the wrongs that we have committed and the shortcomings we have. Larger than ordinary kudu shofars, this exceptional and unique shofar is ideal for communal use in the synagogue or for your personal use at home, and can be proudly displayed all year round.
Please Note: Shofars are a natural product and may therefore differ in color somewhat to what is pictured.

Barsheshet-Ribak Shofars is a family business that produces some of the very best shofars in the world. The union of two great dynasties specializing in the production of high-quality shofars, each of these incredible horns is a testament to the rich history behind them.
The Barsheshet family can trace back their lineage in shofar making to 14th-century Spain, and throughout their time in Morocco and their eventual immigration to the Holy Land of Israel, they have continued the family tradition to produce fantastic shofar horns of unparalleled excellence. Meanwhile, in Poland, a man by the name of Rabbi Yacov Rossman also created objects out of animal horns, and his incredible talent and beautiful shofars became legendary throughout Poland. After settling in Tel Aviv, he continued his craft and taught his cousin, Avraham Ribak, the secrets of his trade. Today, the sons of Avraham Ribak and Meir Bar-Sheshet work together in the Holy Land to produce the finest shofars you’ll ever see. 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.
