Written by Shai Rose, 8/3/2020

 Questions and answers for the Shabbos table;

1- What was the olive oil used for?

  • The Menorah

2- every evening, who would light the Menorah?

  • Aharon and his sons 

3- What special garments did the Kahon have to weir while doing his avodah in the Beis Hamikdash. 

  • 1) the ketonet — a long linen shirt; 

  • 2) michnasayim — pants made of linen;

  • 3) mitznefet or migba'at — a hat or cap;  

  • 4) avnet — a long sash (belt) wound above the waist

4- What special clothing did the Kohen Gadol have to wear?

  • 5) the efod, a sort of very fancy apron, made of blue, purple and red-dyed wool, linen and gold thread; 

  • 6) the choshen, a very special garment which was worn on the chest, containing twelve precious stones inscribed with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel;

  • 7) me'il — a cloak of blue wool, with gold bells and pomegranates hanging from the bottom; 

  • 8) the tzitz — a golden plate worn on the forehead like a sort of band, with the words "Holy to G‑d" engraved on it.

5- How are the Kohanim anointed?

  • First, they have to stand outside of the mishkan with a bull that will be offered as a sacrifice.

  • Moses will then put on Aaron his eight garments and pour some "anointing oil" on his head. 

  • Then Aaron's sons will put on their clothing.

  •                     They will then officially be Kohanim and can begin their service in the Mishkan.

  •                                          From here on, all their children will be Kohanim forever. The last thing in the Parshah is instructions for how to build the golden altar.
