korban pesach under authority of the Supreme Court?

I recently wrote about a brochure being passed around the Haredi community encouraging, with Rav Chaim Kanievsky's blessing, signing up for partaking in the Korban Pesach, if it should become available in time for 14 Nisan.

Last year, Machon HaMikdash had made such arrangements, and now it seems they are doing so again.

I don't know if it is the same campaign as the one above, just under a different name, or if they are two different organizations. They are both charging the same price for your reservation - 12NIS.

Even more interesting is the fact that Machon Hamikdash has petitioned the Israeli Supreme Court to force the State to allow them to sacrifice the Korban Pesach on Har HaBayit on Erev Pesach.

Surprisingly, the Supreme Court told the State they have to respond to the petition by Sunday (today).

I don't believe that at the end of the day the State or the Supreme Court will allow this to happen, but just the fact that they are willing to discuss it and not just immediately reject it outright is a start...


  1. Some friends and I considered this in the past. However, it's very hard to deal with the possibility of hekdesh. Any materials purchased "in case" are pretty clearly hekdesh, and even money for signing up (that 12 shekels they're calling for).

    It's a bit of a catch-22. We really can't prepare without the materials and money becoming untouchable in the future if it doesn't occur this year.

    Materials needed:

    Olive wood
    Pomegranate wood
    Cinder blocks

  2. Can the unused funds be 'offered as a korban'?
    One group is under the Sanhedrin??
    What the names of BOTH groups? (as usual not one unified group, but two i.e. more division)
    And, I was told that any funds not used would be held for when Moshiach arrives! Is this true?

  3. The same case comes to bagatz each year-
