Korban Pesach Service to Take Place in Jerusalem


The annual korban Pesach service will take place in a different location following a court petition. In previous years the ancient Jewish tradition was performed at the Tayelet promenade in Jerusalem overlooking the Temple Mount area. However this year the Veterinary Authority denied permission. Groups wishing to partake of the tradition filed a petition with the Jerusalem District Court in protest. It will now take place nearby in the Nof Zion neighborhood. Nof Zion is one of the newest neighborhoods in Jerusalem and is located on the southside.
 
The event will be attended by Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin and others. The ancient korban Pesach is described in the Torah and discussed every Passover in the Hagadah.
