In the beginning of the portion, in chapter 6 verses 3 and 4, it says:
- Who takes out the garbage in your household? Is it anyone's favorite job?
- The Kohanim have a very special status in the Torah. They do important work in the tabernacle in the desert, and will be the chief sacrifice operators in the Temple when it is built in Jerusalem. Why do you think a Kohen is supposed to take out the ashes?
- What do you wear special clothes for? Why do you wear them? What happens when you put on these special clothes? What do you think that has to do with the ashes on the altar?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
