Just days after a red heifer in NJ proved to be disqualified, the Israeli Temple Institute is crowdfunding an initiative to make sure a red heifer is raised according to Biblical code in Israel.
There are thousands of red cows across the globe. However, the real challenge according to Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute, is to raise one according to the exact specifications and requirements in Israel. If this becomes a reality, it would provide an essential building block for the third Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
The Temple Institute is taking this project into their own hands. They have decided to raise a herd of red cows in Israel so that they can be accepted as red heifers.
They are crowdfunding the project on IndieGoGo and aim to raise $125,000.
