Some days before the middle of Nissan, the whole community proceeds to the place of the sacrifice on Mount Gerizim the chosen place, allowing for preparations to begin days before.
The Passover Sacrifice:
Here alone in the world is the historic rite of the Passover of Israel maintained.
This the only sacrifice done today.
All are dressed in white to their girdles. At noon the kilns are ignited. The priests oversee the ceremony.
At sundown, everyone gathers around the altars. The sheep are watched over by the children.
The High Priest begins the prayer with all the crowd joining in. The singing of a mercy liturgy fills the air.
Finally, with the sundown the High Priest standing on the high stone delivers the sentence, “And all Israel crowd will slaughter it”.
The sheep’s skins are taken off, stomachs and kidneys are burned on the altar. The sheep are skewered and placed in the kilns pits.
After everyone finished, to clean their ships from the skins and other forbidden parts, they gather around the ovens, and put the sheep inside, for about three hours. The ovens are covered by muddy sand.
At midnight, everyone gathers around the altars again, the High Priest gives the order and the skewers are uncovered.
Every family collects the share of the Passover Sacrifice in a big pail. The meat is eaten quickly, mails and females, boys and girls. Finally before mourning the remainder of the meat is gathered together and burnt on the altar accompanied by singing and dancing. At 3:00 AM all the mails of the community gather again, for a prayer at the synagogue.
