The traditional shofar comes to life in a breathtaking display of rams horns, goat horns and life-size animal heads. The children are encouraged to touch and examine the different kinds of horns as they prepare to create their very own shofar.

Participants partake in the sawing, drilling, finishing and suiteshellacking of a shofar. In addition, the children practice the four different shofar sounds on their newly fashioned shofar, and take home their own hand-crafted finished product. 

There are several options how to go about this workshop:

Option I:
Participants cure, saw, drill, and finish a ram’s horn to create a genuine, kosher shofar. The shofar is shared by the classroom.  

Option II:
During this workshop, each child makes his/her own shofar. They cure, saw, drill, finish and shellac a ram’s horn to create a genuine, kosher shofar. 

Please note: Curing and drilling is recommended for 4th grade and up. Preschool through third grade, only sanding and shellacking is recommended.
