“Shofar So Good”

How the Joe-kster thought his trip in Israel was going...



Shofar Rams Horn Musical Instruments in Israel



Used for Jewish religious purposes, a shofar is an ancient musical horn made of ram's horn. Like the modern bugle, the shofar lacks pitch-altering devices (pitch control is done by varying the player's embouchure). The shofar is blown in synagogue services on Rosh Hashanah and at the very end of Yom Kippur, and is also blown every weekday morning in the month of Elul running up to Rosh Hashanah. Shofars come in a variety of sizes and shapes, depending on the choice of animal and level of finish.
