Directions for blowing the Shofar : Hold the Shofar up with the mouthpiece flat (horizontal), usually against the SIDE of your mouth. The lips should be straight and sealed - and only the little part that is covered by the Shofar's mouthpiece should "tremble" apart , when blowing HARD through the shofar.
It is a bit like a long continuous spitting from the side of your mouth. Try holding your lips tight with your fingers and let air blow through the side - the trembling lips make the sound, and the horn amplifies it OUT LOUD (Btw the Australian Didgeridoo works on the same idea). Blowing long and clear blows takes some good practice and patience, but once you get the idea, it is very easy and enjoyable (of course if your neighbors don't mind). Directions for storage : store in a cool and dry, breatheable place. Clean Silver plating periodically for shine and glow with special materials for silver, The shofar is a live tissue (bit like nails).Using wax, detergents, solvents etc will harm it. Traditional ram's horn shofars are made from the horns of sheep while Yemenite shofars are made from the horns of kudu antelope. Kudu are found almost exclusively in eastern and southern Africa. These true horns, unlike the antlers of deer, have a bony core that is actually an extension of one of the bones of the animal's skull. The specialized layer of skin that covers this core of bone contains the protein keratin that makes the horn, and later the shofar, extremely tough and durable. No two animal horns look alike and no two shofars sound exactly the same.
As the ram and kudu grow older, their horns get larger and become more and more twisted into a curve or even a spiral, especially with rams. Horns of older rams often form two or three complete loops.
Larger ram's horn shofars are rare and more difficult to get nowadays. More on the shofar: A shofar. Traditionally that of a ram.

" Rosh Hashanah27a, supports this claim: "Said Raba or it may have been R. Levi: What is the scriptural warrant for this?

Every 50 years, Jews were granted forgiveness, debts were forgiven, indentured Israelites were granted freedom, and the fields shall become owned by the priests. Shofar first indicated in Yovel Jubilee Year - Lev.Indeed, in Rosh Hashanah 33b, the sages ask why the Shofar sounded in Jubilee year. Is found in Rosh Hashanah 29a, where the Talmud talks of trumpets for sacrifices but Shofar in the Jubilee Year does not apply to priests who are exempt from the obligations of the jubilee. We have the first mention of Shofar Sounding by non-Priests. Perhaps the first distancing away from the Sacrificial Cult.
Otherwise, for all other special days, the Shofar is sounded shorter and two special silver Trumpets announced the sacrifice. When the trumpets sound the signal, all the people who were within the sacrifice prostrate themselves, stretching out flat, face down and on the ground.

Indeed, Rosh Hashanah is called "Yom Truah" (or "Yom Teruah") (the day of the shofar blast).Book of early rabbinic laws derived from the Torah. , a discussion centers on the centrality of the shofar in the time before the destruction of the second temple (70 AD).

In which, every fifty years, Jewish law provided for the release of all slaves, land, and debts.

(Jewish law) rules that the shofar may not be sounded on Shabbat due to the potential that the baal tekiyah (shofar sounder) may inadvertently carry it which is in a class of forbidden Shabbat work. The historical explanation is that in ancient Israel, the shofar was sounded on Shabbat in the temple located in Jerusalem. After the temples destruction, the sounding of the shofar on Shabbat was restricted to the place where the great Sanhedrin.Jewish legislature and court from 400 BCE to 100 C. However, when the Sanhedrin ceased to exist, the sounding of the shofar on Shabbat was discontinued. The shofar says, Awake, sleepers from your sleep, and slumberers arise from your slumber! Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 3:4. The Sages indicated that the mitzvah. Was to hear the sounds of the shofar. They went so far as to consider a shofar blown into a pit or cave and to decide whether a person who hears the original sound or the echo has fulfilled the mitzvah.
The Shulchan Aruch sums up that if the hearer hears the reverberation, the mitzvah is not valid. However, if the listener perceives the direct sounds, he fulfils the mitzvah. Thus, most modern halakhic authorities hold that hearing a shofar on the radio or the Internet would not be valid to satisfy the mitzvah because electronically reproduced sounds do not suffice for mitzvot that require hearing a specific natural sound. However, one should consult a competent rabbi if an unusually pressing situation arises, as some authorities believe that performing mitzvot through electronically reproduced sound is preferable to not performing them at all. Women and minors are exempt from the commandment of hearing the shofar blown (as is the case with any positive, time-bound commandment), but they are encouraged to attend the ceremony.
If the Baal Tekiyah (shofar sounder) blows with the intention that all who hear will perform the mitzvah, then anyone listeningeven someone passing bywho intends to hear the Shofar can perform the mitzvah because the community blower blows for everybody. If the listener stands still, it is presumed he intends to hear.
If one hears the blast but with no intention of fulfilling the mitzvah, then the mitzvah has not been fulfilled. The expert who blows (or "blasts" or "sounds") the shofar is termed the Tokea lit. "Blaster" or Ba'al T'qiah lit. Being a Ba'al T'qiah (shofar sounder) is an honor. Every male Jew is eligible for this sacred office, providing he is acceptable to the congregation.
The one who blows the shofar on Rosh Hashanah. Should likewise be learned in the Torah and shall be God-fearing; the best man available. If a potential choice will cause dissension, he should withdraw his candidacy, even if the improper person will be chosen.
If a blind blower was dismissed, but the community did not find a blower as proficient, he should be appointed as community blower. The Shulchan Aruch discusses who is fit to blow the shofar on behalf of a congregation. Anyone not obligated to fulfill the mitzvah of sounding the shofar cannot fulfill the commandment for (cover) another whose duty it is to perform the mitzvah. Although a woman (who is exempt from this mitzvah because it is time bound) may not blow the shofar for men (whose duty it is to perform the mitzvah), a female Ba'alat T'qiah may intone the shofar for herself and other women. Similarly, she may say a blessing over the mitzvah even though it is not mandatory the requisite blessing contains the words "asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav vtzivanu", who sanctified us with His commandments [mitzvot] and commanded us to..., but women are not commanded in this mitzvah. Only a freeman (not even a slave who will become free in the next month) can be a Ba'al T'qiah.
