The first chapter of this Torah portion (Numbers 19) contains one of the greatest mysteries in all of Judaism: the sacrifice of the Red Heifer. It is unlike any other sacrifice.

I am first going to give you the plain facts surrounding this strange sacrifice and then we'll let the Spirit open up the true meaning for today. Let's dive in.
