Matt:

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.
