All of our shofars have been carefully selected to bring you only the very best from the land of Israel. Hand-crafted following traditions passed down through families over centuries, these kosher shofars are prized by Jewish communities and collectors worldwide. Out of Our Minds brings you a range of instruments:
Every shofar is unique, with a slightly different shape, colour and sound. Every Jewish shofar for sale at Out of Our Minds Banners has been handpicked for its beauty and musicality from among dozens of other Jewish horns. These pictures provide a guide to the size and shape of your shofar, but your horn will be one of a kind.
Ram's Horn Shofars
This beautiful horn is considered to be the classical Hebrew shofar mentioned throughout the Bible. Taken from a male sheep (ovis aries) of at least one year old, this shofar is said to symbolize the ram that was caught in the bushes and served as a substitute when Abraham was commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac.
Our Ram's Horn Shofars come in a range of sizes and all have been selected for their exceptional quality. Our AA ashofars come from wild rams at least six years old. Our Ram's Horn Shofars are partially polished to retain the original horn texture at the wider end.

Yemenite Kudu Shofars
Made from the horn of an African kudu (Tragelaphus strepsicero) of the antelope family, these exquisitely polished Yemenite Shofars make a lasting impression. The Yemenite Shofar is typically much longer than the Ram's Horn Shofar and is considered easier to blow with a greater range of notes. Brought to Israel from Africa by Yemenite Jews, the kudu horn's deep sound is reminiscent of an echo coming from a mountain. Some believe the Yemenites preferred this strong echoing sound to remind themselves of the mountains, where Abraham was required to sacrifice a ram.
Our Yemenite Shofars are available in three sizes and are fully polished.

These unique and delicate shofars come from the South African Oryx (oryx gazella), also of the antelope family. Almost like a flute, they are long and narrow and look stunning with their dark brown-black hue. The tips of the horns are removed, and there is no need to drill a hole in the horn, thus making shofar production easier. Jews in Yemen often decorated these shofars with precious stones.
Our Oryx Shofars are fully polished and specially chosen for their distinctive beauty.
