This beautiful natural horn shofar makes a great addition to your New Year's celebration. It also is a beauty to display all year 'round. Natural horn.
Most Yemenites use a special, very long Shofar that is made of the horn of the greater African kudu Tragelaphus strepsiceros, a large striped animal of the antelope family. The kudu reputedly has the biggest horns of any creature. Some believe that the kudu horn of the Yemenite Shofar was the original Shofar, which was brought from Africa to the land of Israel. The Yemenite Shofar is typically longer than the Ram\'s horn Shofar and is often exquisitely polished. Longer Shofars allow the playing of more notes.
