Why we, the Jews, generation after generation do not perform on a daily basis sacrifices in each and every synagogue on this planet? Many will consider this question as very simple to answer. Since we had been commanded by G-d to deliver sacrifices at specifically chosen place, at the Temple in Jerusalem that was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.
But I have some further questions. Isnt that true that everything happens for a reason in this world that is ruled by G-d? Isnt that logical to assume that G-d allowed the Romans to destroy our Temple for a reason? Do you reckon G-d have been waiting almost 2,000 years for us to rebuild the Temple? Why we have been unable to rebuild the Temple for so long and why G-d has not interfered to assist us? Why G-d has not dedicated another place for that purpose? I dont wish to offend anyone and I clearly do not consider myself as the most intelligent or spiritually elevated person among the Jews but, in my view, we have completely lost our connection to G-d and can neither hear Him nor understand His commands and grasp the meaning of His admonitions.
In my view the major purpose of a qorbanot is not just atonement as such. It well may be that other nations are not aware of the fact that sacrifices keep this world connected to G-d. It is this world that cant preserve peace, tranquility, prosperity, tolerance, justice and happiness without being constantly connected to G-d. That connection is being sustained by qorbanot.
I think, that the Temple was destroyed for a reason. We were expelled, dispersed and scattered around the globe for that particular mission: to keep this world constantly connected to G-d. Because we have been expected to become the nation of priests. G-d allowed our Holy Temple to be destroyed to make us understand that our mission is to make the whole world His Holy Temple, to build a spiritual Holy Temple on this planet. I think that our mission is not to be placed permanently in one particular place on earth and possess a particular piece of land or to be focused on a construction of a physical temple in that place. In my view, it is totally wrong to be fully preoccupied with that and to refuse to perform our main function to perform qorbanot not only for our own sake but for the benefit of the whole humanity living among other nations.
Why G-d allowed the Nazi to almost make us all perish? G-d is not cruel. But since for generations we hadn't understood his previous messages, that was at that point the only other message from HIM to make us realize the following: in case we allow the world to reach a level where it is now (since we do not perform our job to keep it connected to G-d) we, the Jews, are the first to perish.
The necessity and purpose of qorbanot had never been questioned in Torah. It was considered as absolutely integral part of the creed and wasnt expected to be doubted or questioned. It was a LAW commanded by G-d directly and through his humble servant Moshe. Why on earth we the Jews have been disregarding that COMMAND for almost 2 thousand years on excuse of the destruction of the Temple? Or on an excuse that we are allowed to substitute it with repentance, prayer and charity (or other good deeds)?
Why had we jumped to the excuse that a prayer is more important than a sacrifice? They are both integral part of a communication with G-d and the process of safeguarding of the connection of this world to G-d. Although we, the Jews, are well aware that we are the nation of priests and it is our function to keep this world connected to G-d, not only we are fully focused on our own predicaments only and do not perform our main religious service, we havent even started to "constuct" our Holy Temple, the spiritual one. I think that we have been abstaining from this function for so long that we need to start performing sacrifices in each and every synagogue now.
So, do we all need any further messages?
