Want to know more about the shofar?

Here are two fun YouTube videos I found on the shofar.

That is so cool! I've never actually heard a shofar being blown before. Knowing what it sounds like really helps me to more vividly imagine some of the Bible stories where shofars had great significance (like Jericho). Thanks for sharing these awesome videos!

Kate,

I'd never heard a shofar blown before, either. It occurred to me that you can find practically anything on YouTude these days, so I looked it up and decided to share my discovery. Glad you liked it, too!


afinkle221,

Thank you for sharing your links to more information on the shofar. I took a quick look at your blog, and I'll probably come back again sometime when I have more time.
