A stunning lithograph by Jerusalem artist David Yohanan, signed by the artist, created and printed in Jerusalem. This is a religious Jew blowing the shofar (ram's horn) on the Jewish High Holidays (Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur). The shofar is a natural wind instrument, one of the oldest known to the world. In earliest times the shofar was used by Jews as a musical instrument. Its most important uses described in the Bible were to intimidate the enemy, to declare war, and to call the populace to assembly. According to one tradition, on the first day of Elul, a month before Rosh Hashana, Moses climbed to the top of Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments for the second time. He blew the shofar as a reminder to his fellow Jews not to sin, not to build another Golden Calf (as they had when Moses received the first set of the Ten Commandments on the mountaintop). From that time on, the shofar, which until then had been blown only on the first day of Elul, was blown each day for the entire month of Elul (the month of the Shofar) to remind everyone that the Days of Awe are approaching and that they must take stock of their lives and improve their conduct.

The man in this piece has a kippa on and on top of it his talit (prayer shawl). He is blowing his shofar. The Hebrew words next to him say "blow [during] the month of the shofar." You'll notice many jewish symbols on his clothes. Most are related to Rosh Hashana and others are jewish symbols: a menorah, machzor (Days of Awe prayer book), pomegrante (traditional food for Rosh Hashana), Shabbat and Yom Tov candles, 7 species, kiddush cup, landscapes of Jerusalem, fish (another symbol of Rosh Hashana), a royal crwwn, a dredel, and a dove.

This is a wonderful addition to any home, office or as a gift.

The piece comes signed by the artist, matted and with a protective covering.

Measures: 11 x 13 inches.
