About the question of the type of red. I read in another comment
June 20, 2015 4:26 pm

BH” Aduma comes from adama-earth so the red is an earthy color:)

the red heifer

Israel jubilee is here at last. let watch out

Be aware!
April 19, 2015 7:15 am

Mashiach ben David will not allow the killing of a parah adumah. The red heifer will purify The Temple Mount by being there with the Mashiach. The Third Temple will not be of human hands but of high spiritual presence of Shekhinah. Those believing that Mashiach will prepare the parah adumah by killing that cow are really delusional people. Be aware!

Why not NJ?

#66 Why not in NJ? Are there no Jews in NJ?

It is not up to men, where the tenth one is found…Except for that men must watch for her, and examine her. So, the circumstances are right.

And if it had been born on a goy farm, would they have even noticed? Lake wood is as good a place as any, for a Jewish farmer who flies, and waits and watches for Mashaich.

But...Temple Mount is occupied
April 3, 2015 8:02 pm

Not to split red hairs, but I was under the impression that the heifer has to be around two, which it already is. The Temple Mount is occupied by the Dome of the Rock. By the time a temple would be built in it’s place, assuming the Mount were free. wouldn’t this heifer be too old? Correct me if I’m wrong.

They better put guards around it. Im sure some jihadist will want to kill it.

Go on Google.com and type in Highland Cattle. They all look like this one. As much as I anxiously await Moshiach, I think I would have taken the $1 million and donated it to my rabbi to build our new Chabad house instead. I not sure this cutie is The One. But we never know, do we?

April 2, 2015 12:20 am

I’m truly amazed.

April 1, 2015 2:17 pm

its so awsome

wow, moshiach is here!!!!

Highland Cattle are all red!!!!!!!!!!! Been saying this for years

Red Heifer
March 31, 2015 11:11 pm

First long-haired cow I’ve ever seen! So glad that the farmer is not out for huge sums of cash for her but is giving her away to Israel instead! God bless that farmer!!!

March 31, 2015 10:38 pm

Why in NJ of all places though… that’s one thing to definitely ask moshiach when he arrives.

March 31, 2015 10:24 pm

Moshiach’s on his way

March 31, 2015 9:50 pm

Megillah 17 says that the year before shmitta there will be alarms sounded in Israel & at the end of the shmitta year the beis hamikdash will be rebuilt…..it’s all a gradual process like we daven three times a day מצמיח קרן יהושע

March 31, 2015 3:34 pm

I saw a Kolle l guy tip this cow into a big vat of red dye.

Have you ever been in Scotland?
March 31, 2015 3:32 pm

..seriously, there is a whole bunch of them there!

March 31, 2015 1:07 pm

im seeing brown also

The nose is white
March 31, 2015 12:32 pm

I am not an expert on cattle, however I did not know that some female cattle had horns. The nose of this animal is clearly white. Many completely red heifers are born each year, especially from the Red Angus type. Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute has seen them. Unfortunately the ones born in the United States almost always have an ID tag placed on their ears which is a blemish. Moshiach is already here and eventually I will prove it.

March 31, 2015 11:32 am

that means it will come before it dies

March 31, 2015 10:35 am

This cow is so cute! Hope it’s the real one!

March 31, 2015 8:14 am

its a light color red

March 30, 2015 11:46 pm

Hope it means moshiach is really coming asap…. Been way too longgg

March 30, 2015 11:23 pm

What color do you see I’m seeing brown!!!!

Thank you Lord
March 30, 2015 11:20 pm

Now we have greater hope. this is awesome.

scottish highland
March 30, 2015 11:15 pm

this breed has a red line…. you see many that ‘look’ red all over. the question is if it has not got 2 hairs of a diff color. still its the cutest cow ever. i loooove this breed. and they are very hardy. lets hope this is finally the one.

March 30, 2015 10:56 pm

i just read a holocaust story of a bro telling his something like a nevuah that moshiach is supposed to come in the yr that ends with #5 but she was tooooo hysterical to hear the whole thing.
now w/ this story i’m positive moshiach’s coming

March 30, 2015 8:42 pm

Hope it means moshiach is really coming asap…. Been way too longgg

March 30, 2015 8:39 pm

its blood will be sprinkled? Gee, and here I thought it was the ashes of the burnt animal..

To 40
March 30, 2015 8:23 pm

1) It will not be burned on the Mizbach, but on a stack of wood on one of the mountains near the Har HaBais.
2) No blood will be sprinkled on anybody. Ashes mixed with well-water are sprinkled on people, not blood.
Rambam Hilchos Pora Adumah Chapter 3.

March 30, 2015 8:20 pm

This shows regardless if it’s real or not we have to take something opon ourself weather it’s legit or not

To 40
March 30, 2015 8:13 pm

Not so. The Parah Adumah is not a “Korban”, and is not brought into the Bet Hamikdash. And not burned on the mizbeah. It is slaughtered and burne on Har Hazeitim.

Red or orange
March 30, 2015 8:05 pm

Is this red or is it orange? From what I remember in the picture books they look real red. Anyone know?

March 30, 2015 6:32 pm

Soon they will find a few hairs that will disqualify it, just as many times has happened. Wait and see, don’t hold your breath!

Wow that’s a lot to turn town a פרה אדומה for a million dollars.

March 30, 2015 5:21 pm

Wow!! Now let’s all greet Moshiach. Are you ready? I surely am 🙂 lets go lets go:)

answer to 28 by ''Talmid chacham''
March 30, 2015 5:13 pm

Yes it will be shechted and then burned on the מזבח and then its blood will be sprinkled on whoever is tamei on the 3rd and 7th day.

the end of my comment titled ''Talmid chacham''
March 30, 2015 5:07 pm

I highly doubt that it is realy a real פרה אדומה

Talmid chacham
March 30, 2015 5:04 pm

It says ”פרה אדומה תמימה אשר אין בו מום….” which means a complete red cow which has no blemish, therefore there are many ways to פוסל a פרה אדומה ת for example if its eyes are crossed for then we know that it worked, or if there are two white hairs that by there stem they are white, both of these things render it improper to be a פרה אומה.
Now till it is checked over I do not think that ט

To #16
March 30, 2015 9:24 am

according to tradition there have been 9 red heifers since the first one in the time of Moshe Rabbeini and the 10th will be found for the Era of Moshiach to bring ritual purification for the Jewish people. May it be bekorov Mammash !

March 30, 2015 8:50 am

According to halacha what shade of “red” is red?
There are other areas in halacha that discuss the shade of the color red. V’dai L’Mevin.

Red Heifer
March 30, 2015 1:13 am

He runs a shaitel outlet, maybe he found her a red shaitel. But seriously because he is a בעל צדקה maybe that is why he merited a red heifer.

Pardon my lack of knowledge -
March 30, 2015 1:04 am

Since the times of the Bais HaMikdash how many pure authentic red heifer reported?
