Monday: Re-creation of Passover Sacrifice

Rabbis and professors will join Temple organizations, Monday, in holding a gathering for illustrating and practicing the Passover sacrifice in preparation for performing it at its appointed time on the Temple Mount. Performance of the commandment would depend on the coming of the Messiah or permission being granted by the government, according to the organizers of the gathering, although recently, Israel's chief rabbis have come out against Jews going up to the Temple Mount.

The gathering will cover all aspects of the sacrifice under the current conditions, in which the Temple does not exist. This includes building of an altar - however temporary, checking animals for defects, priestly garments, singing of the Levites, slaughtering of the animal, throwing of blood, uncovering of fats and roasting the Paschal lamb, among others.
