A shofar, a traditional Jewish ritual musical instrument, carved from a single ram's horn. The shofar has an associated wooden, box-shaped stand with a plastic mount that has been padded and wrapped with black tape.
White textile with white and blue fringe lining the short ends. There is a repeating pattern of the Star of David embroidered in blue with a total of eighteen (18) stars evenly spaced across the textile. Also embroidered in blue in the center bottom of the textile is the name [RABBI CAPERS / SHMUEL FUNNYE]. There is a one centimeter blue band running across the top and bottom edges of the textile.
A handwritten Torah scroll containing the five books of the Old Testament (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) handwritten in Hebrew on parchment. The scroll is rolled onto two wooden shafts topped on either end with four plates. The shafts and plates are known as Torah rollers [atzei chaim or "trees of life"]. The wooden and metal plates at the top of the left and right shafts are identical. The exterior sides of the top plates have been finished with two bands of inlaid metal resembling rope. Between the bands there is an alternating pattern of decorative brass tacks and larger white-coated, round bores holes that expose the metal plates beneath the wood. Inside the decorative bands near the center of the plates, are paper disks, inscribed in Hebrew and covered with protective clear, plastic film disks that have been secured in place with brass nails. At the top of the left roller, the finial is missing due to loss and has been wrapped in white, cloth tape. The spindle-shaped finial of the right roller is a wooden peg, covered with a length of metal tubing and three differently colored spindle-turned elements. The finials at the bottom of the Torah are both spindle shaped with matching plates but mismatched spindle-shaped handles. The left handle is darker than the right, has a different design and is shorter in length than the right handle.
A length of fabric with a repeating pattern of temple doors, windows, columns, trees, and a partial sun against a blue, brick patterned background. At the top and bottom edges of the cloth, there are five sets of three pairs of orange, tablet-shaped windows capped with three white arches. Below the top band there is a second band that depicts a green palm tree, an orange partial sun behind two blue hills and clouds drawn against a white background. The center panel had a blue brick wall background and depicts an archway of the white, temple doors surrounded by orange outlined columns on either side, an orange arch above the door frame underlining green text that reads [TEMPLE OF JERUSALEM]. On either side of the columns are three, orange, tablet-shaped windows capped with three, white arches. Below the temple doors is additional text that reads [SABBATH WOMEN CONFERENCE/ (ARISE AND SHINE)] in green lettering.
