Using sacrifices and offerings as a way to connect with God seems alien. How are we, in a modern-day context, supposed to connect with the myriad of details associated with animal sacrifice in the Bible? Why did God require animal sacrifice anyway? And what was the meaning behind the different types of offerings? If we understand that, perhaps we can find the relevant spiritual meaning of animal sacrifices today.

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he explores these fundamental questions by reexamining the different types of sacrifice in the Bible, and discover how this ancient tradition creates a modern framework for how to connect with God today.
