The Temple Institute: Mikdash Kids: Goodies

 

 

he Red Heifer is undoubtedbly a symbol of purity. But why do we read it each year in batei knesset (synagogues) just weeks before the Passover holiday, and what does it have to do with kids? To learn the answers to both these questions, click on each of the red heifers below, beginning with the upper left hand corner, and proceed clockwise, ending with "Did you say Red Heifer?" in the center. Enjoy!
