Trumpet Blowing

$5.00

One of the most important instrument in the Temple service was the trumpet. The trumpets were made of silver, as stipulated in Numbers 10.2.
According to the Mishnah, "They blew never less than twenty-one blasts in the Temple (in a day) and never more than forty-eight." The first three blasts were made when the gates of the Temple were opened, nine during the morning sacrifice and nine at the evening sacrifice. The Sabbath was also announced with three blasts of the trumpet and again three more blasts were made when the Sabbath had actually begun.
