According to Temple Institute officials, a perfectly red para adumah was born in Israel on 17 Elul 5778. The red heifer is being carefully protected and raised by the institute in the hope of returning a state of ‘tahara’ to the world as well a “rebuilding the Beis Hamikdash”.
According to a BeChadrei Chareidim report, the institute will continue to monitor and inspect the red heifer towards determining its suitability for the mitzvah. Of course, institute officials will bring the heifer to Gedolim for inspection towards determining its kashrus to be designated as a para adumah.
In line with this, the institute is now searching and interviewing to determine the suitability of kohanim for shechting the para adumah. The institute is actually publicizing its search for kohanim, calling on suitable candidates to step forward to be questioned and interviewed.
