Pidyon Haben Ceremony 2024 (Rabbi Dovid Kaplan)

Rabbi David Kaplan – Shares about the ceremony called a Pidyon Haben which directly comes from the Torah (Mitzvah D’Oraita). If you are a first born son you may be required to have this relatively simple ceremony performed by a Kohen (a member of the priestly tribe decending from Aaron Hakohen). There are some disqualifying attributes that nulify the need for this ceremony which Rabbi Kaplan explains in the video. The person in the video who is the main participant in the ceremony is newly religious (Bal Teshuva – returning to Hashem) and realized he did not have this done when he was a baby and has taken it upon himself to right this error.
