The 7 Reforms of Rabbinic Judaism #2 Abolishing Sacrifice

Dr Broshi continues to expound on the 7 reforms of Rabbinic Judaism. After the destruction of the Temple, Judaism experienced sweeping reformations and in effect also invented their own “New Covenant” of the Oral law. In this episode Dr. Broshi discusses how the Rabbis created a system to replace the temple sacrifices. Notes and references: 1) “No need for sacrifices any more” (Midrash ‘Avot D'Rabbi Nathan', chapter 4).  2) “Yeshiva Students themselves now serve as the redemption for Israel” (Midrash ‘Tana Debi Eliyahu Zuta', portion 2).
