Oliphants and Unicorns
As the season of the shofar starts again, I am pleased to announce the release of an updated and expanded edition of my monograph Exotic Shofars: Halachic Considerations. You can download it for free at www.zootorah.com/essays. This latest edition includes a much-improved understanding of the identity of the Biblical re'em, translated as "unicorn" in some Bibles, as well as a discussion of oliphants - horns made out of the tusks of elephants. Please share it with whoever you think may be interested!
For those in LA - I am speaking this Shabbat at YINBH (details will be posted at http://yinbh.ipower.com), and next Shabbat at Sefardic Magen David.
