Tosafot to Yoma 25a discuss whether the kohanim sat down to eat korbanot in the 'azarah. They suggest three approaches: They would eat standing up in the 'azarah, due to the prohibition on sitting there. Only kodashim kalim (eaten throughout the city) could be eaten sitting down. The prohibition on sitting in the 'azarah does not apply to things which are ...

Mishnah Zevachim 14:4-8 describe the times that bamot were permitted and forbidden: Before the mishkan was set up - bamot permitted Once the mishkan was set up in the desert - bamot forbidden While the mishkan was in Gilgal - bamot permitted While the mishkan was in Shiloh - bamot forbidden While the mishkan was in Nov and Giv'on - bamot permitted Once the ...

It is a sheep who was traded against a dog that is forbidden to be brought as an offering. See the gemara in Temura 30a and following. Such a sheep is forbidden as the verse continues: as it is "abhorrent to the LORD your God. Regarding dogs specifically artscroll, quoting Ramban, explains Dogs are considered abominations because they were often trained ...

You are correct that they are not commanded to bring sacrifices. Your question is mentioned by Rambam in Mishnah Torah, Hilchot Melachim, chapter 10, halacha 10 which says: בֶּן נֹחַ שֶׁרָצָה לַעֲשׂוֹת מִצְוָה מִשְּׁאָר מִצְוֹת הַתּוֹרָה כְּדֵי לְקַבֵּל שָׂכָר. אֵין מוֹנְעִין אוֹתוֹ לַעֲשׂוֹתָהּ כְּהִלְכָתָהּ. וְאִם הֵבִיא עוֹלָה מְקַבְּלִין מִמֶּנּוּ. ...

It's explicitly connected to that verse. מִנַּיִן שֶׁקּוֹשְׁרִין לָשׁוֹן שֶׁל זְהוֹרִית בְּרֹאשׁ שָׂעִיר הַמִּשְׁתַּלֵּחַ, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (ישעיה א) אִם יִהְיוּ חֲטָאֵיכֶם כַּשָּׁנִים כַּשֶּׁלֶג יַלְבִּינוּ: ‏ How do we know that you tie a red string to the goat that gets sent away? From the pasuk "If your sins are like red, they will become white like ...

Your question brings me to tears, and I know you are not the only one who has questions about the future reinstatement of the korbanos. You have asked the question very honestly and in an even-handed way. Let me address some of your points. 2) In Shmuel (I 15:22) for example, the prophet says to King Shaul: וַיֹּ֣אמֶר שְׁמוּאֵ֗ל הַחֵ֤פֶץ לַֽיהוָה֙ ...

In Emunot V'Deiot 3:9 R. Saadia Gaon explains that prior to the priesthood of Aaron and his sons, there were always specific people appointed to perform sacrificial services: The third [problem is presented by] the fact that God commanded all men to offer up sacrifices and then forbade such activities to everyone except Aaron and his children. But this, too,...

I would recommend the sefer Kuntres Avodas Hakorbanos. It includes basically everything you would want to know about korbanos ,and even includes a CD.

I read once an answer to that in a book of Ben Ish Hay. I think it was at some responsas at the end of the אמרי בינה. His way was to say make a difference between Korbanot that was offered by the Kohanim, who learnt the good Kavanot and the "real meaning" of Korbanot. This is what is the greatest avoda. In another hand, when Amei Haartsim give korban, it'...

In moderation meat isn't bad for you. In this article on the issue, the bottom line is: Unprocessed and properly cooked meat has many nutrients and may have some health benefits. If you enjoy eating meat, there is no compelling health or nutritional reason to stop. God wants us to enjoy in a reasonable fashion!

possible answer to the question... HKB”H promised that the bais hamikdosh will be the place where all humans will come to pray and he will listen to them even if they don’t bring or are non participants in the sacrifices that’s why it will be called “house of prayer” שלמה המלך ביקש.....כשחינך הביהמ״קדש נא רבש״ע !!!!שמע אל תפילות הבאים להתפלל פה בבית ...

One possible answer may be from here: "תיכון בית תפילתי" – תבנה את בית המקדש העתידי. (השלישי) שנקרא גם 'בית תפילה'. "אז אגמור בשיר מזמור" – בעת הגאולה אשלים את תפילת ההלל עם חנוכת המזבח." It seems that Tefillah is an inherent part of Beit Hamikdash. If the Mikdash was simply a house of sacrifice, ending the giving of thanks with a ...

That's because 2 Mishnayos back you already learned that these were exceptions. Menachot 9:7 כָּל קָרְבְּנוֹת הַצִּבּוּר אֵין בָּהֶם סְמִיכָה, חוּץ מִן הַפַּר הַבָּא עַל כָּל הַמִּצְוֹת, וְשָׂעִיר הַמִּשְׁתַּלֵּחַ. רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן אוֹמֵר, אַף שְׂעִירֵי עֲבוֹדָה זָרָה.:‏ None of the communal offerings require the laying on of hands except the bull that is ...

No. Non-Jews may only offer a burnt offering to G-d. Rambam Hilchot Ma'aseh HaKorbanot 3:2: וְאֶחָד אֲנָשִׁים וְאֶחָד נָשִׁים אוֹ עֲבָדִים מְבִיאִין כָּל הַקָּרְבָּנוֹת. אֲבָל הָעַכּוּ''ם אֵין מְקַבְּלִין מֵהֶן אֶלָּא עוֹלוֹת בִּלְבַד שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (ויקרא כב כה) "וּמִיַּד בֶּן נֵכָר לֹא תַקְרִיבוּ אֶת לֶחֶם אֱלֹהֵיכֶם". אֲפִלּוּ עוֹלַת הָעוֹף מְקַבְּלִין ...

Suggestion (Some of the comments leaned in this direction as well): Rav Hirsch at the beginning of Vayikra talks about צפון, the north. If I understand him correctly, he says that it does represent the physical - and therefore some korbonos represent the person sacrificing, subjugating, his physical side. But there is a higher level. The Ramchal in Mesilas ...

Drink away! See the Malbim (ibid) who points to various locations in the Talmud that discuss this same issue. Some Tanaim learn from your question - why Har Sinai is mentioned before wine libations - that the wine libations were not offered in the desert, others learn that they were already offered wine libations in the desert and they didn't wait until ...

Rav Hirsch explains this at length in Beraishis 4:3-6 3 Now it came to pass at the end of days, that Cain brought of the fruit of the soil an offering to the Lord. 4 And Abel he too brought of the firstborn of his flocks and of their fattest, and the Lord turned to Abel and to his offering. 5 But to Cain and to his offering He did not turn, ...

The Artscroll Yad Avraham commentary to this Mishna only discusses lambs and rams regarding this "indeterminate status". In addition, at no point in their commentary to the mishna in 1:1 (which describes the various appellations of a cow) do they discuss any intermediate 30-day period. The Rambam also does not mention the intermediate status of cows (Maase ...
