Shofar workshop

Horns are seen in Shimon Keinan's shofar manufacturing workshop in Givaat Yoav in the Israeli occupied Golan Heights, Sept. 16, 2014. Observant Jews blow the shofar in the Hebrew month of Elul, on the days leading to the Jewish new year and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Keinan established his factory in 1998. He uses ram and antelope horns imported from Africa.
