Hashem is not pleased with any sacrifice . . . it's the broken and contrite heart that he's looking for.
Psalm 51 KJV
[16] For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. [17] The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

So, if anyone tells you that you can sacrifice something "in your place" to make Him happy with you, you're being misled.
Pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the [messiah] out of a pure heart. (II Tim 2:22)
