Rav Yisrael Ariel says Jews must carry out the laws commanding the Pesach offering even though the Temple has not been rebuilt. The rabbi also took part in a “practice session” of the Pesach offering conducted this week in Jerusalem (see video).
“This reality in which the Temple Mount is in Arab hands must end,” he said in an interview with Arutz Sheva Wednesday. “They must open the gates for us. There is no argument that there is a duty to bring the Pesach offering even if the Temple is not rebuilt.”
Rav Ariel calls upon the Chief Rabbis to demand the opening of the gates of the Temple Mount on Friday, the day of the Pesach Seder. “They should make a formal request to the government of Israel, to open the gates of the Temple Mount so we can bring our offerings.”
“Everything is ready – there are clothes for the Priests, an altar and vessels – all they need to do is open. We have asked the Chief Rabbis several times but have received no answer until now,” he said.
