Two days before the eve of the Passover holiday, the Temple Institute, a non-profit educational organization located in the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, released a video showing a Korban Pesach (Passover Offering) of a lamb that took place on March 25. The offering was organized by the institute’s “Cohanim Training Academy,” which trains Jewish Cohanim (priests). The institute said that the event was the most accurate re-enactment of such an offering in almost 2,000 years.
