Shabbat Sacrifices


Did all Jewish people have to come to the Temple and sacrifice 2 spotless lambs every Shabbat? Or did just the Levitical priests attending the Temple make those sacrifices every Shabbat?



  1. The sacrifices were offered up by the Priests as the representatives of the Jewish People. There was no necessity for each Jew to bring sacrifices to the Holy Temple for Shabbat. In fact, individual sacrifices were not offered up on Shabbat – only communal sacrifices were offered then.
