Esteemed Rabbi: At what point did the Jews stop making sacrifices as described in Leviticus?

Answer:

The korbanos (animal-offerings) as described in Chumash Vayikra (Leviticus) were offered in the Tabernacle and later on in the Holy Temple, in Jerusalem. The practice of the korbanot ceased with the destruction of the Holy Temple in the year 3828 (70 AD). We hope and pray, every day, for the reconstruction of the Holy Temple and the resumption of the sacrificial order.

  1. Esteemed Rabbi- Thank you kindly for your reply. Although a Christian, I grew up with and enjoy to this day friendships with those of your faith. It was my good fortune to visit Israel and I strongly support the Jewish State. All blessings to you in your work.
    Shalom.

    • Thank you. In these difficult times, when “the truth is absent” (Mishnah, end of Sotah), your friendship is highly valued indeed.
      Blessings and Shalom upon you and yours.
