Orthodox Jews plan Passover sacrifice on Jerusalem's Temple Mount

Catholic World News - April 11, 2014

An Orthodox Jewish group is planning to offer sacrifice on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem for Passover next week.

The group, Hozrim El Ha-Har, has told members to gather on Monday, April 14, prepared to sacrifice a lamb on the site of the ancient Temple. The sacrifice would be the first offered in centuries on that spot.

The Temple Mount is also the site of the Al Aqsa mosque, and is jealously guarded by Muslims. The plan by a Jewish group to offer sacrifice there is likely to stir tensions, and Israeli security officials will be on alert.
