The Priestly Garments – Part VIII
Torah lists twelve stones to be engraved and placed upon the breastplate of the High Priest. How are we to ascertain the true identity of each individual stone? Why even the most ancient of Jewish sources, the three Aramaic translations of Torah seem to disagree on which stones are to be used. And even the greatest Torah sages of old seem to be proposing different stones and even different sets of criteria for determining the stones. Yet the Great Rambam seems to take the identity of the stones for granted. How do we solve a two-thousand year old mystery?
