Live: Passover sacrifice at foot at Temple Mount

Temple mourners practice sacrificing the communal Paschal offering and pray for the reinstitution of the true Passover sacrifice.


Due to the health situation, this year authorities have limited the number of participants in the ceremony as well as the number of onlookers. As a result, the ceremony will be broadcast live this year.

The Paschal Sacrifice is the offering which the Torah mandates all Jews offer on the eve of Passover.
