Shofar Manufacturing Ahead of the Jewish New Year in Tel Aviv, Israel
Tel Aviv, Israel. 14th September, 2017. The skull of a ram, raw material, lays in the Shofarot Israel workshop for crafting shofars. The shofar is an ancient musical horn made of a ram's horn and used for Jewish religious purposes. Shofarot Israel, owned and operated by the Bar Sheshet and Ribak families, takes pride in family roots of craftsmanship dating back to the 14th century in Spain, Morocco and Poland. The workshop now works at full capacity to meet peaking demand ahead of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur.
