The Temple Institute has announced plans to raise a herd of red heifers according to Levitical standards in preparation for the Third Temple.
The Temple Institute has joined forces with an experienced cattle rancher in Israel to raise a herd of red heifers. Under the Rabbis supervision, the program will utilize a technique of implanting frozen embryos of Red Angus cattle with Israeli domestic cattle. The result will be the introduction of the Red Angus breed into Israel.
“Having already prepared over 70 sacred vessels including the golden menorah and High Priest’s gemstone-encrusted breastplate, now is the time to fulfill the commandment of the Red Heifer. Make no mistake, this project is no less than the first stage of the reintroduction of Biblical purity into the world, a prerequisite for the building of the Third Temple.”
“Three decades of research and preparation have led us to this special day,” the Institute said in a statement. “During this period known as the ‘Three Weeks,’ as world Jewry mourns the destruction of the Second Holy Temple, The Temple Institute has taken a bold move towards the third.”
