Are there any new developments on the Red Heifer?
By Irvin Baxter
QUESTION: John from Missouri asked, Is there any information out there concerning the Red Heifer?
ANSWER: The latest I’ve heard on that was when Rabbi Chaim Richman spoke to our tour group in 2006. One of our tourists asked about the status of the Red Heifer, understanding that in order to begin animal sacrifices again, the first thing that they need is the Red Heifer in order to cleanse the Israeli people from contact with a dead body. I was really shocked at what Rabbi Richman said. He quickly replied we have the Red Heifer now. We are only waiting for the right time. He said this with no hesitation and on no uncertain terms. And so it’s my opinion that they do have the Red Heifer, but of course, they don’t want to publicly offer it until the door is open for them to resume animal sacrifices on the Temple Mount.
