Shofars are measured from end to end following the curve.
Yemenite Shofars are organic from the KUDU antelope and vary in color, texture, and finishing. Each one is tested before shipped to make sure there are no blockages.
The shofar: Some biblical context FYI
“The shofar is the biblical trumpet (the Hebrew word shofar is translated “trumpet” in most English Bibles). Because the most ancient shofars were made from a ram’s horn, it reminded the people of the ram that God provided when Abraham offered his son Isaac on Mount Moriah.
Shofars can be made of any animal horn except that of a cow, so a much larger shofar is made from the horn of an antelope. It is called the Yemenite shofar.
The shofar is a very important element in the worship experience of the Jewish community. It also has great significance for Christians, for the references in the Apostolic Scriptures to the trumpet most certainly refer to the shofar. When John spoke of seven trumpets in Revelation, and when Paul wrote about the last trumpet that signals the resurrection, they were talking about the shofar.”
