Where is the Yom Kippur Sacrifice in 2019?

Has Adonai (G-d) ever left Israel without a means for redemption since Torah was given at Sinai and the Mishkan (Tabernacle) was consecrated?

As Yom Kippur for 2019 (5780) approaches, millions of Jewish people around the world will prepare for this holiest of days on the Jewish calendar. Yet, the aspects for this day as found in Torah are absent. All aspects of Judaism have transformed this day due to the absence of the Temple. The emphasis is less on sacrifice and more on mitzvot (acts of charity / good deeds) Were these changes needed or did Adonai(G-d) make provision to where sacrifice would still be an instrumental part of Yom Kippur, even without The Temple?

What other questions might you have in growing up and being raised Jewish, whether Orthodox, Conservative or Reform?

  • What do the Rabbis and Talmud (Oral Law) say about Yom Kippur?
  • How do we reconcile the fact where nearly 20% of Torah's focus is on the priesthood and sacrifice, while none of our expression of Judaism today even addresses this fact? (Whatever Became of Israel's Priesthood?)
  • Can you justify the lack of importance directed towards Sacrifice and Atonement, given Torah's focus? (Does atonement come through good deeds or sacrifice?)
  • What does this mean for me?

Kehilah Portland will be hosting a presentation about the Yom Kippur sacrifice and its relevance today, in 2019. We will look into the narrative presented within Judaism regarding Yom Kippur. Would Adonai (G-d) have left Israel without a means to make atonement? Is there a history whereby Adonai (G-d) has left Israel without a means to reconcile their relationship with Him?
