EXTREME MAKEOVER: Temple Edition ~ The Laws on G-d’s Residence of Choice Rambam: Hilchot Beit HaBechira. Chapter 8; 5a
Episode #78 – “FIRE GATE”
In previous Episodes we’ve already clarified the Beit HaMikdash Honour Guard that applies in mutually exclusive fashion to both Cohanim and Levi’im.
In this episode we’ll learn focus on the role played by the youngest Cohanim in the Chambers of Smoke and Spark; where the “Kid Kohanim” were stationed when they took up their version of this sacred watch.
The names and meanings of these upper level chambers will be explored and we’ll also highlight the different opinions of how old is old enough to carry out of this unusual Temple obligation.
