The Pascal Lamb and the Smashing of Idols, Past and Present2 April 2023
Rabbi Shimshon HaKohen Nadel joins VOI's Yishai Fleisher in-studio to talk about a special mock Pascal Lamb Offering ceremony in Jerusalem he attended, along with thousands of other people, among them animal-rights protesters. Do animal offerings run counter to today's morality? Or are parts of the lost Jewish identity being revived before our eyes? Indeed, in Egypt, the Pascal Lamb constituted a national display of Jewish self-determination; perhaps it could be viewed as the first Independence Day Barbecue.
