THIS SHOFAR FROM ISRAEL IS APPROXIMATELY 18" TO 19" MEASURED ON THE CURVE. IT GIVES A WARM SOUND AND WILL BE A GIFT OF GREAT VALUE AND A TREASURE FOR YOUR HOME. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE BUT CARNEGIE HALL MAY NOT BE IN YOUR FUTURE. All shofars are made in Israel and certified kosher. Because shofars are a natural product no two shofars are exactly alike, expect variations in the coloring and exact size and shape of the shofar you receive.
