The Passover sacrifice could be slaughtered in front of the Dome of the Rock plaza.
This is the suggestion of Safed’s Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu. He also warns that Jews evading Passover mitzvah are risking supernatural punishment.
The annual attempts to resume the Passover sacrifice received a first significant rabbinical backing recently. Safed’s Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, a prominent religious Zionism leader, has called on the public to perform the sacrifice mitzvah on the eve of the Jewish holiday, in about two weeks.
Speaking during a Halacha lesson in Jerusalem last week, the rabbi warned that Jews evading the mitzvah were risking “Kareth” – a supernatural punishment for transgressing Jewish Law.
According to Rabbi Eliyahu, there is a halachic, legal and public possibility to offer a Passover sacrifice these days. During the lesson, he quoted senior rabbinical authorities, adding that Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalisher – one of the founders of modern and religious Zionism – had asked the Turkish sultan to allot an area on the Temple Mount for the erection of an altar for a Passover sacrifice.
The Safed rabbi went on to say that the Passover sacrifice could be slaughtered in front of the Dome of the Rock plaza, although the Temple no longer exists and the people of Israel are defined as “tameh met” (in a status of impurity which comes from contact with a dead body).
Passover falls on the 18th of March. The Jews are called to sacrifice the passover lamb in the Temple in Jerusalem, and request God of Israel to forgive their sins.
The problem seems to be that their god was not capable to protect his temple in Jerusalem. In 70 A.D, the Temple was destroyed by the pagans, and the Jews exiled into all nations.
The Bible says that the temple was no longer needed. Jesus the Messiah came to Jerusalem and paid for the sins of the Jewish people. He has paid with His own blood. No longer do God of the Bible want blood sacrifices, He takes no pleasure in the blood of goats and chicken.
The Holy Spirit of the God of Israel left the Temple in Jerusalem. The Jews were told by all the Jewish apostles to embrace their own Messiah. The majority refused.
To restart the blood sacrifices on the Temple Mount, will not please God of Israel. Its another example of disobedience, and the Jewish refusal to accept the blood of the Messiah as the only atonement for sins.
He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.
