Yemenite Shofar
As you can see, this shofar is relatively long and curled. Beginning at about 30", it can reach over 40" long.

Rams Horn Shofar
This horn is considered to be the classic shofar. It’s made from a sheep’s horn and comes with either a natural or a polished finish. Its length is usually between 8" to 24".

Silver coated Shofar
Either sterling silver or silver plated, this decorated shofar will make a great gift option.

The antique shofar
This shofar, a Jewish ceremonial instrument made from a ram’s horn, was the first Judaica piece collected by Cyrus Adler for the National Museum in 1889. Adler’s grandfather, Leopold Sulzberger, brought it with him to the United States when he emigrated from Germany in 1838.
