Shofar in Jewish Religious Laws

The Shofar is the Jewish calling voice, we meet it in the bible during times of joy and war and in the temple. The appearance of God on Mount Sinai occasion was with a Shofar’s voice: "Be Shofar's voice growing very strong, Mosses will speak and God will answer with voice".

First appearance of the Shofar was in the Binding of Isaac: "And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in the thicket by his horns…"and Hazal said: "God said blow before me with a ram's shofar so I will remember for you the binding of Isaac"

Since, the shofar movement is related to forgiveness and mercy month and it is blown in every Israeli community during Rosh Hashanah, with the ending of Yom Kippur fast and in Independence Day prayer

In the future to come God will gather all Jewish people from exile and will bring them to Israel as the prophet said: "Therefore on that day the big Shofar will be blown and all lost will come from the land of Ashur and the deserted from the land of Egypt and bow to God on the holy mountain Jerusalem.
