The Passover Sacrifice:
Here alone in the world is the historic rite of the Passover of Israel maintained.
This the only sacrifice done today.
All are dressed in white to their girdles. At noon the kilns are ignited.The priests oversee the ceremony .
At sundown everyone gathers around the altars. The sheep are watched over by the children. The High Priest begins the prayer with all the crowd
joining in. The singing of a mercy liturgy fills the air.
Finally ,with the sundown the High Priest standing on the high stone delivers the sentence, “And all Israel crowd will slaughter it”.
The sheep’s skins are taken off, stomachs an kidneys are burned on the altar. The sheep are spited and placed in the kilns pits.
After every one finished, to clean thier ships from the skins and other forbidden parts,they gather around the ovens, and put the sheeps inside , for about three hours. The ovens are covered by muddy sand.
At midnight ,everyone gathers around the altars again, the High Priest gives the order and the skewers are uncovered.
Every family collects the share of the Passover Sacrifice in a big pail. The meat is eaten quickly, mails and females, boys and girls. Finally before mourning the remainder of the meat is gathered together and burnt on the altar accompanied with singing and dancing. At 3:00 AM all the mails of the community gather again, for a prayer at the synagogue.
