Avi Mishaan is known in Israel for producing the most beautiful shofars. His Yeminite Kudu shofar has been further enhanced with an impressive handpainted Lion of Judah by Israeli artist Sarit Romano.
Yeminite shofars are beautiful kosher shofars and are quite distinctive. Made from kudu horns from southern Africa, they are longer than ram’s horn shofars and typically have a gentle twist to the body. Yemenite Jews have a tradition of blowing these types of shofars since kudu’s horns were easier to acquire than ram’s.
The Lion of Judah’s handpainted shofar has a deep sound due to its large air volume and can produce several different rich tones. The Yeminite shofar tends to be easier to sound due to its length and larger opening.
The shofar is painted with vibrant, high-quality enamel paints, finished with a protective seal, and polished to provide an exquisite sheen. The words ‘Lion of Judah’ are painted in English in gold paint. Each shofar is cleaned thoroughly and is non-scented and one-of-a-kind.
The exquisite painting on the shofar makes it both functional for sounding and a beautiful object to display in your home. It is a meaningful way to bring Jewish tradition and a touch of the Holy Land into your home.
The Lion of Judah Shofar makes a stunning gift for family and loved ones.
Please note that as each shofar is handpainted on real kudu horns, each one will have slight differences, enhancing the uniqueness.
