Jerusalem, Israel - A group of extremist rabbis wants to resume the biblical practice of animal sacrifice at a religious site in Jerusalem, its members said.
When the Bais Hamikdash (Jewish Temples) stood in the Old City of Jerusalem more than 2,000 years ago, animal sacrifice was a centerpiece of the religion. After the destruction of the temples, sacrifices were banned.
Now a group, called the Re-established Sanhedrin, is trying to find sheep suitable for sacrifice, with an eye towards resuming the practice at the Har HaBayis. [Scotsman.com]
