Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman of The Temple Institute.
Weekly series with new teachings available every Thursday.
Maimonides’ Laws of the Chosen House, chapter five: Eight chambers open into the Court of the Israelites. Having already described the chambers along the southern border of the Israelite Court in last week’s teaching, Rabbi Richman goes on to describe the chambers along the northern wall of the Israelite Court: The Chamber of Hewn Stone, the Chamber of the Wheel, and the Parhedrin: the private quarters of the High Priest. The Rabbi describes at length the four lotteries which were conducted daily in the Chamber of Hewn Stone for the purposes of assigning tasks for the serving priests.
