Mini Yemenite Shofar:
22" and under.
Shofars are measured from end to end following the curve. Yemenite Shofars are organic from the KUDU antelope and vary in color, texture and finishing. Each one is tested before shipped to make sure there are no blockages.
The shofar (ram?s horn) is the biblical trumpet (the Hebrew word shofar is translated ?trumpet? in most English Bibles). Because the most ancient shofar was made from a ram?s horn, it reminded the people of the ram that God provided when Abraham offered his son Isaac on Mount Moriah. Because shofars can be made of any animal horn except that of a cow, a much larger shofar is made from the horn of an antelope, and is called the Yemenite shofar.
The shofar is a very important element in the worship experience of the Jewish community. It also has great significance for Christians, for the references in the Apostolic Scriptures to the trumpet most certainly refer to the shofar. When John spoke of seven trumpets in Revelation and when Paul wrote about the last trumpet that signals the resurrection, they were talking about the shofar.

|A Different Look at WWI Jun 28, 2005|
|This is an interestingly different battlefield memoir, describing the scene of the infamous 1916 battle rather than the battle itself. Although beautifully written, readers should be forewarned that the text contains only incidental references to the bloody fighting, which is described in more detail in Masefield's later "The Battle of the Somme" (Heinemann, 1919.)|
Masefield says of the old front line "It is a difficult thing to describe without monotony, for it varies so little." You will enjoy this book if you enjoy elegiac prose. His tone is subdued but nevertheless he is celebrating the heroism of the British forces: not surprising since Masefield was writing at the behest of Charles Masterman, the head of Britain's War Propaganda Bureau, for whom he was working by 1917.
John Masefield was an author and poet laureate of Great Britain, most famous for his poetry collection "Salt Water Ballads." He was 37 when he joined the Red Cross to serve in France during World War I. Masefield went on the Dardanelles expedition with an ambulance unit and witnessed Britain's disastrous Gallipoli campaign on the Turkish coast. When he returned to England, Masefield was recruited by Masterman and produced a number of texts and lectures putting a positive face on the challenges faced by British troops in the war.
The battle of the Somme began July 1st, 1916 and produced over a million casualties. Masefield declares "It first gave the enemy the knowledge that he was beaten." However he is exaggerating, since the result was merely a strategic withdrawal of the German forces to a better fortified line (the Siegfried Stellung) from which they launched their final offensive two years later. Masefield makes much of the German's superior position, but it should be borne in mind that they were subjected to the most massive artillery barrage of the war, taken by surprise, and vastly outnumbered. Anyone interested in a fuller account of the battle should try a more recent text on the Western Front or for personal memoirs of the battle try Siegfried Sassoon's "Memoirs of an Infantry Officer" or Robert Graves' "Goodbye to All That."
|For Serious Students of the Somme Only Feb 23, 2004|
|I found this book of interest only as a contemporary description of the Somme battlefield as it existed shortly after the battle. The language used is poetic to be sure, but the description is repetitive and frankly a bit boring. There's only so many ways you can describe a tree-lined stream. The introductionary chapters contain a brief history of the battle of the Somme, and Masefield's tour guide makes up less than half the pages.|
