EXTREME MAKEOVER: Temple Edition ~ The Laws on G-d’s Residence of Choice Rambam: Hilchot Beit HaBechira. Chapter 8; 11c
Episode #89 — “BAKERY MEETING”
In the immediate past Episode, we learnt how the nocturnal Priestly Guard Duty to Mind the Mikdash was completed by a circular sweep around the Azara (Beit HaMikdash Courtyard) perimeter.
The two torch-led groups that previously headed off in opposite directions meet-up at the Chavitan Baker’s Chamber. And now, as the circle is being completed — special greetings are extended to one another.
As day is about to break, it’s time to conclude and hand-off the baton of mindfulness by getting the day going. Learn how that happens when the proverbial Sanctuary Sentries take the initiative to actively prompt the Chavitan Bakers.
Why meet there, and what does the initiation of the daily schedule of services have to do with the Priestly Palace Guards?
In this new Episode we’ll further develop the Rebbe’s Temple Watch Thesis that continues to clarify and answer so many questions!
