EXTREME MAKEOVER: Temple Edition ~ The Laws on G-d’s Residence of Choice Rambam: Hilchot Beit HaBechira. Chapter 8; 8a

Episode #82 – “GUARD DUTY”

In previous Episodes we learnt about the Cohanim Honour Guard and how Hashem’s Holy Home isn’t hospitable to Ritual Impurity and a solution that was carved in stone!

Having concluded the Cohen Guard Duty details, in this new Episode we move onto the responsibilities shouldered by the Levite Clans.

We’ll learn about their duty as Gate Keepers, as well as being sure to Cover Corners.

Interestingly some of these postings were on the inside of things, while others were most strikingly kept outside. Fascinatingly, that was due to a technical seating prohibition and the length of their assignments.

Finally, we will shift out focus to positioning, as the precision of the Rambam’s words along with an anonymous medieval commentary lead us to a proper understanding.
