Small Gemsbock Shofar


Product Description

Gemsbok is the term in Afrikaans for the southern African oryx (Oryx gazella), a species of antelope with straight, ridged horns, dark brown or black in color, which lend the gemsbok shofar a striking appearance.

The gemsbok shofar is kosher, but according to halachah it is not ideal for the mitzvah of sounding the shofar on Rosh Hashanah, because it is not bent. However, for the Jubilee year, the Mishnah states that a straight horn is preferred (see Rosh Hashanah 3:2).
