Sacrifices and offerings to the hebrew god is a prevalent requirement in the Torah. The esoteric priests also believed such sacrifices enhanced their
supernatural abilities, although I suspect this belief may have been poached from Babylonian influences. Animal sacrifice is back on the cards for
many orthodox jews iirc and you can bet if a new Temple is built on the mount, there will be burnt offerings of some description somewhere in the
building, even if it's the basement. Not publicised though for obvious reasons.
The abolishment of animal sacrifice is one of the few niceties I'll grant the Catholic church.
