Shabbat Parah 2024 - Shabbat of the Red Heifer - Hebcal

Shabbat Parah 2024 / שַׁבָּת פּרה 5784

Shabbat of the Red Heifer 🕍

Shabbat Parah for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Friday, 29 March 2024 and ends at nightfall on Saturday, 30 March 2024. This corresponds to Parashat Tzav.

Shabbat Parah (“Sabbath [of the] red heifer” שבת פרה) takes place on the Shabbat before Shabbat HaChodesh, in preparation for Passover. Numbers 19:1-22 describes the parah adumah (“red heifer”) in the Jewish temple as part of the manner in which the kohanim and the Jewish people purified themselves so that they would be ready (“pure”) to sacrifice the korban Pesach.



“So we believe that it's very likely that the ceremony would happen somewhere in the area of Passover, 2024, out to the possibility of Shavuot, 2024,” Stinson said. “Somewhere in that timeline, the cows would be old enough and it would be the proper timeline for that ceremony.” FULL STORY at above link.

Eve of Passover is 4/22/2024 with the 1st day of Passover on 4/23/2024. The Eve of Pentecost (Shavuot) is on 6/11 and the 1st Day of Pentecost is on 6/12/2024. We will have to wait and see if the Red Heifer sacrifice is done this coming year,
