For older children, you may want to try the paper mache method. They come an a large variety of designs and materials. The shofar is then blown each day of Elul, except the Sabbath. Many Christians recognize Easter as a paganized holiday.
If you’re in the market for a shofar, the most significant cost factor is length, which is typically measured around the outer curve (not end to end). Ram’s horns range from 10 inches for a compact horn to 24 inches for an extra large shofar, with several more sizes in between. Typical online prices for short shofars can run as low as $30. For a medium length horn, expect to pay $40-$90 and for a large shofar $60-$120. An extra large ram’s horn shofar will set you back $130 or more.
The same principles apply to Yemenite kudu horns as well, though these shofars are considerably longer, of course. A 30-inch kudu shofar will cost around $100, while a jumbo kudu shofar, which is typically about 48 inches (yes, that’s right, four feet long) can cost $200 or more.
Shofars are also available in plenty of different finishes like natural finish, partially polished and completely polished. Select the type of finish that suits your tastes.
Peter doesn’t get it. This is “the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Far be it from Him to humbly stoop down before His imperfect disciple and wash his feet! Peter has the right motives, but the wrong understanding. Jesus corrects him: Let Me serve you. You cannot be My disciple otherwise. Why? Because you must be all about emptying yourself and serving others – all the time – as you spread My Good News to all nations.
The apostle Paul said those holy days were “a shadow of things to come,” Colossian 2:16. He kept them, (Acts 20:6,16; 27:9) and urged us to follow his example, 1Cor 11:1; 5:8. Some scholars say the types that relate to the second advent will be fulfilled at the time of the symbolic service. This was so last fall when the US Senate met on Rosh Hashanah to approve a bailout and the markets crashed for 10 days till Yom Kippur. This fit the timing for the trumpets in Leviticus 23:24-27. With the first trumpet in Revelation 8:7, “all green grass was burnt up,” but grass represents riches in James 1:9-11 in KJV, “As the flower of the grass, so shall the rich man fade.” So we see a timely application of Jewish feast days may occur for the end-time, just as Christ died as the Passover lamb at Passover.
The bottom line is that I am not here to bash religion at all. Whatever you believe is fine with me. If you want to go to church every Sunday, go for it. If you want to go to Temple, more power to you. If you’re a Buddhist, good for you.
I admire decorated houses as much as anyone just as I would walk into a house with beautiful menorahs and admire those. I balk at the gaudy displays just like you who do celebrate Christmas think that particular display tacky and just as I would walk into a Jewish home and find extreme beliefs – well extreme.
Be sure to consider these sensitive dates when picking out your wedding date so that every one of your guests can enjoy the special day to the fullest.
