400 Rams Horns to Awaken IDF Repentance
by Maayana Miskin  (www.israelnationalnews.com)

The IDF Rabbinate is purchasing 400  new shofars for use during the Hebrew months of Elul and Tishrei. The shofar,
made of a ram’s horn, is blown to help arouse Jews to repentance before Rosh  Hashanah, the Day of Judgment, and Yom Kippur, the Day of  Atonement.

Prior to the purchase, the Rabbinate gathered all of  its current shofars to see how many were still fit for use, and any damaged
horns were replaced.
