Would it be offensive to use a shofar in a musical?

I’m planning to produce the musical Godspell, and during my research into it I learned that one of the characters blows a shofar to get everyone’s attention at one point.

I hadn’t heard that word before so I looked it up and found that it’s used on Jewish religious occasions, so I just wanted to ask if it would be offensive to use it in a musical about the Christian New Testament. Should we keep it in, or replace it with a trumpet or something?
