Learn about one of the sacred instruments used by God's people! This DVD will teach you: The history of the shofar, the biblical use of the shofar, the sounds of the shofar, how to blow a shofar, and how to take care of the shofar. Professionally filmed and approximately 45 minutes in length.
I was totally expecting a better put together DVD. The teaching points were solid, but it felt like he just set up a tripod and started recording. The delivery of the info was not as smooth as most teaching DVDs I've purchased.
I own a shofar, and by trial and error have gotten good at getting multiple notes out of it. But I never knew the "tunes" I should play. This DVD provides the answers. The presenter is Jewish and gives the Hebrew name and use of each of the 5+ "patterns" he teaches. That's the first 10 minutes.
That last 30 minutes is a lesson in the biblical instances where the shofar was used.
Production quality is fair. It is a single take shooting session, where mis-speaks and stumbles are not edited out. Presenter is obviously not a polished actor.
