Parah Adumah—Red Heifer


In a nutshell, the Torah tells us that one who comes into contact with a corpse (by touching or even being under the same roof as the corpse) becomes impure. He cannot enter the Holy Temple or partake of the sacrificial offerings or other sacred foods until he purifies himself.



As part of the purification process, the priests would slaughter the red heifer and burn it on a pyre, together with a cedar branch, hyssop sprig and crimson wool. They would then take the ashes, mix them with spring water, and sprinkle the mixture onto the impure person. For more on all this, see Meet the Red Heifer.


Disqualifications

So if red cows aren’t that rare, why…

Was it not Solomon who had to conclude that he could not fathom the rules of this. And from there we learn that we don't have to understand everything, but just do what HaShem asks.

What is it about the colour red? Esau had red hair, King David had red hair and the red heifer has red hair too🤔
