The quest for the red heifer: An ancient commandment meets modern technology

The Temple Institute launched a crowdfunding campaign last month to help raise the first authentic, kosher red heifer in 2,000 years in the land of Israel.

The Jerusalem Post on Thursday checked in with the Temple Institute’s International Director, Rabbi Chaim Richman to find out how the project is moving along.

"The campaign is going quite well but it has had its challenges," Rabbi Richman tells the Post. "This is about the re-introduction of a concept that’s really quite ancient and doing it in a very modern way with the latest technology – it’s procuring one of the most elusive commandments with modern technology."
