This is a Jewish themed coordinated web set I created based on the symbols of the shofar and the Star of David.  A 'shofar' is an animal horn trumpet, one of the earliest wind instruments known to man. The shofar may be the horn of any kosher animal, except that of a cow or calf in deference to the biblical golden calf incident.  The shofar was, and still is, sounded on Jewish High and Holy Days such as the weekly Sabbath, the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and the day of the New Moon.  Blowing it today is a reminder of the Everlasting Covenant between the G_d of Israel and the Jewish people.

Above you see a sample of how a web page title could be inserted into the shofar title image created for this set.  There is a blank of the image in the .zip file below.    If you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.  Below you will find the shofar graphic divider and Star of David bullet designed for this page.  There is also a clipart email button.   Coordinating navigation graphics that could be placed at the bottom of each page if appropriate are also included.

Names and meaning of the shofar blasts:
There are four different sounds associated with the Feast of Trumpet's service,
detailed by centuries of tradition.

Mogan David bullet Tekiah -  The "blast," one long blast with a clear tone.  An unbroken sound that is to call man to search his heart, abandon his inappropriate actions, and seek forgiveness through repentance.
Mogan David bullet Shevarim -  A "broken," sighing sound of three short calls;  a broken, staccato, trembling sound.  It is to typify the sorrow that comes to a man when he realizes his wrong and desires to change his ways.
Mogan David bullet Teruah - The "alarm," a rapid series of nine or more very short notes.  A wave-like sound of alarm calling upon man to stand by the banner of G_d.
Mogan David bullet Tekiah Gedolah - "The great Tekiah," a single unbroken blast, held as long as possible.  The prolonged, unbroken sound is to typify a final invitation to sincere repentance and atonement.
