i have a different dilemma and i hope somebody can help me out. i am a musician/performance artist who is coming in from America for a 3 and a half week tour of Denmark w/a Danish band in support of a new record and according to both the local Danish consulate where i live and the airline i am taking, that i'm not allowed to bring any animal-related products to Denmark with me, including my shofars, which i use extensively in my work. might there be someone or somebody in either Copenhagen or Ahrus, who might be willing to either lend me a shofar to use for the duration of my tour or let me rent one or even tell me where i can buy one? anything anyone might be able to do for me, i'd be eternally grateful!

how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
