Web Site Allows Participation in Passover Sacrifice

A web site has been set up to allow Jews to do their best to fulfill the obligation to bring the Paschal sacrifice.

"Each year, Jews make feverish and intensive preparations for the Passover holiday with the Seder as its centerpiece," the site says. "However, we are still missing the true centerpiece of the Passover table: namely the Paschal Offering, or Korban Pesach. Korban Pesach is a Biblical commandment of the highest order, with the command repeated and amplified to us in three different places: Exodus 12, 3-12, Numbers 9, 1-13 and Deuteronomy 16.

"Just as circumcision, the first commandment imposed on an individual Jew, our forefather Abraham brought us into the covenant as individuals, the commandment of Korban Pesach, the first commandment imposed on the Jewish People as a collective--obligating men, women and even children--brings us into the covenant as a People."

The site, set up by the nascant Sanhedrin, invites readers to click here to learn more about preparing for the Korban Pesach today.
