“The Shofar Man” was birthed during a trip to Israel in 1996. This occurred when Jim and Carla Barbarossa visited the Holy Land. While Jim and Carla were shopping in the City of Jerusalem, they heard a Shofar Sound and Jim purchased a Giant Yemenite Shofar to bring home. To Jim’s surprise, G-d spoke to him to blow the Shofar as He would lead him. In October 1996, Carla had a dream that she was pregnant, and Jim was taking her to the hospital in a small car. Jim reached under the seat and pulled out a Jumbo Yemenite Shofar and said, “I will blow this during the birthing process. During that same month, Jim and Carla went to Africa with the Shofar in hand. Jim blew the Shofar as G-d directed, and deliverances, healings, and miracles followed. Since then, Jim has been Shofar blowing and teaching nationally and internationally on the Ancient Hebrew Instrument of Praise, Worship, and Warfare the Jewish Shofar. During these teachings, Jim was tagged with the nickname “The Shofar Man.”
Jim Barbarossa, the Shofar Man, has been a father and mentor helping to raise up thousands of shofar sounders all over the world that God has called and anointed to be a part of His end time army. Jim is also a member of “Gideon’s Army” a network of Shofar sounders from around the world who gather to release God’s power and authority over all the earth through the sounding of the Shofar.

“And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance forever throughout your generations.
