L’shanah tovah tikatevi v’taihatemi!
GUYS be careful, I don’t think this is a kosher shofar, it looks like a cow horn and cow horns are invalid for shofar! Jeez Boromir, way to drop the ball! How many people weren’t yotzi hearing the shofar this year because of this mistake?! ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR L.O.R. ABOUT THESE THINGS WOW.
Despite the animal it’s definitely not kosher because metal decorations on a shofar are not permitted. Where would you even get a non-kosher shofar? Who makes those?
Boromir clearly learned only part of the Mishna on this topic and that part improperly at that. The shofar for Rosh Hashanah in the Beis HaMikdash was adorned with gold, and the one for fast days had silver. So he did get that from somewhere. He just didn’t understand that that was a special Beis HaMikdash thing. And he forgot to learn entirely the part where he couldn’t use a cow’s horn.
Probably the same people who make non-kosher tzitzis, mezuzos, and so on make the non-kosher shofars.
damn it boromir you really dropped the ball on this one
I love y’all so much ♥

And now I’m not sure if I should consult my LOR or my LOTR. So, so confused.

Have rachmanus on me and write this? ;) I’ve never finished the Hobbit but suddenly I’m just assuming the dwarves are chassidim following their rebbe…
Naturally, you should consult your LOR on LOTR
My LOR may, in fact, have an opinion on LOTR (as may animatedamerican's, if I recall correctly; she has a cool LOR).
Everyone wants to be in the shiur of Rav Gandalf. His smicha has such yichus that people come from all lands to ask him questions. In later years, he and Rav Saruman had a major machloket regarding the interpretations of Massechet Taba’at. Rav Saruman and his students (known as the nazgul, from the passive of the root zayin-gimel-lamed, the meaning of which has been lost to history) broke away from the yeshiva and re-formed the yeshiva at Mordor, where Sauron ha Zaken had formed *his* yeshiva centuries before. Rav Gandalf’s students became known just as The Chevrah, as if there was never a chevrah before or after, but everyone knows who you are talking about if you talk about the chevrah.
Also: nazgul from zayin-gimel-lamed is a corruption of gezel (gimel-zayin-lamed), as either a joke, an insult, or an objection to the existence of taba’at sauron. It gifts itself. It guides itself. It goes where it will. And the nazgul follow it. For this reason, the chachomim say: al tikra nigzol, ela nazgul.
