EXTREME MAKEOVER: Temple Edition ~ The Laws on G-d’s Residence of Choice Rambam: Hilchot Beit HaBechira. Chapter 8; 6


In previous Episode we learnt about the Elder Cohanim, and the semi-sacred “Chamber of the Hearth” where they’d spend the night prior to their Beit HaMikdash Day of Duty.

This was also the location for the Adult Cohanim Honour Guard, which included taking responsibility for the Keys to Hashem’s Holy Home!

In this new Episode we’ll learn all about their Sleeping Arrangements answering a slew of curious questions:

Can sleeping Cohanim be considered an Honour Guard?

Did they have special Priestly Pajamas, did they bring their own?

Were there beds or cots to sleeping on, or did they make do on the ground?

Finally, was there a unique issue of Temple Bedding and Pillows, Sleeping Bags and was it befitting of the Mikdash-grade Dignity, as they say in “Royal Fashion?”
