Traditional Rosh Hashanah Gifts
The first day of the Jewish new year obviously calls for some traditional Rosh Hashanah gifts.
Rosh Hashanah is one of the biggest holidays in the Jewish calendar, and so getting a traditional Jewish new year gift is a great idea for any Jewish person: whether religious or conservative.
Have a look to see great gift ideas to see what I mean…
High-Quality Yemenite Shofar Kosher & Polish + Free BagTop Traditional Gift
Guess what? It’s Rosh Hashanah! Of course we’ll be starting off with a Shofar!
The unofficial symbol of the Jewish new year (and Yom Kippur) is clearly a great traditional Rosh Hashanah gift. And if you’re looking to get someone a Shofar, the clear choice is the Yemenite shofar (even for an Ashkenazi).
Did You Know?
The Yemenite Shofar is made from an African Kudu horn (as opposed to a Ram’s horn). It has a bigger mouthpiece, which makes it much easier to play it, and therefore is friendly to “amateur-players” as well as pros.
This high quality, polished Yemenite shofar looks much more impressive than the smaller Ram’s Horn Shofars, and is substantially easier to play.
Tip: This Shofar is odorless, compared to many other Shofars out there that come with a weird smell
The beautiful colors, unique style and amazing sound of this Shofar will make you feel as if it came directly from mount Sinai (it’s made in Israel, so close enough).
And yes, you’re looking at the most popular Shofar online (a bestseller).
