This readably, concise book surrounds its topic answer most questions concerning: how to produce the instrument how to play the instrument who should sound the Shofar historical aspects Biblical citations its musicality what to look for prior to buying and Jewish Law for those who want to venture into the more traditional area. Taking this overview of an important ancient instrument, sounded today for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (derivation from the Jubilee Year), we go back to the days of the Second Temple and see how the Priests included the Shofar in most important sacrifices. Then, we pick up the rabbinical interpretation of wanting to include something in the prayer service from the destroyed Temple. This book applies to non-Jews, particularly Christians, whose literature indicate that before the Messiah returns, Gabriel will be sounding this most ancient of instruments, the Shofar.
