Jerusalem – 300 Goats and Sheep, 20 Slaughterers, One Willful Rabbi

    Preparing for Sacrifice: Yehudah Glick holds a goat while Chaim Kanievsky, a rabbinic authority, checks his sources. Photo: Neria Glick Jerusalem – Making Seder for the extended family seems like child’s play compared with Rabbi Yehudah Glick’s Passover preparations. The New York-born Glick is getting ready to lead world Jewry in a Paschal sacrifice April 18, the first night of Passover.

    According to the Torah, the Children of Israel were commanded “in perpetuity” to sacrifice a young lamb or goat on the anniversary of the Exodus. But this sacrifice was to be conducted in the Temple, and was therefore suspended after the Temple’s destruction nearly two millennia ago.

    Today’s Seders, with their many commemorations of the sacrifice, such as the shank bone on the Seder plate, are largely a tribute to the offering. The rabbis inserted the famous line “Next year in Jerusalem” at the end of the Haggadah to express the hope that subsequent Seders would take place in the Messianic era.

    But Glick, who lives in Otniel, a Modern Orthodox settlement in the West Bank, claims that this declaration of hope is half-hearted without practical preparations. So with the backing of some influential rabbis, he has contracted farmers to provide him with 300 sheep and goats for the sacrifice, should the Messiah arrive. He also put 20 slaughterers on standby; and, for those who wish to take part, but who live outside Jerusalem, he made Seder-night accommodations within walking distance of the Old City.

    As was posted here n VIN previously, there was a Rav who brought many mekorot that there is no reason why we should not be bringing a korban pesach nowadays. I guess this guy is just following HIS local orthodox rabbi!

    this MESHUGENER needs to be admited immediately,to an insane asylum for the criminally insane,did you ever wonder,why so many insane frum people in Israel? i think the answer is a simple one,they have too much time on their hands,the vast majority of them don’t work,very few realy learn all day,bottom line is, like they say in yiddish ”MEN VERT MESHUGAH FON LEIDIG GEIN”
    RABBONIM in Israel,please,please,WAKE UP,and see the damage you have caused for KLLAL YISROEL,with this insanity of having hundreds of thousands of able bodied young men not working for a living,you are destroying them mentally and physically,close the KOLLOLIM and send them to work.

    Interesting idea. It makes sense to prepare for mashiach. But to start purchasing the animals? There are much more pressing issues faced by the Jewish people than this. Maybe a spiritual preperation like teshuva and teffila and tzedaka would be more effective, but if he really thinks that when the mashiach comes we will have a sheep shortage and we will need his sheep he is a bit diluted, that after all the miracles we will be lacking sheep
