Zvachim Daf 40 - sacrificed - altar broken unworthy per hectare

Sacrifices a page from the ceiling of Hall of incense altar broken unworthy per hectare

Carefully as we have seen before, for "page types - from deals with the internal details of the sacrifice of sins, and notice the details that hinder the sacrifice for not delaying the sacrifice. We will carefully that inhibit two of the information, understanding and renewal of Maimonides.

Page from Page A Gemara of the verses precision that:

"Tent of meeting - ... that if a ceiling of Hall of emphysema was not it."

That is, if for some reason the temple's ceiling was broken, but all tools are in place, can not the priest sprinkle the blood of inner sin. Rashi explains how this went conclude the written language:

"Emphysema - Rise roof ceiling of the tent is not a character."

That is, the law requires "tent" walls of the temple, their absence can not work the blood work.

Page from a page in 'The Gemara brings another went:

"Altar of incense - why me? If not Nathanach incense altar was not for drugs."

If for some reason the incense altar defect occurred, it must be replaced with another. However, not enough new altar putting in place - there is a need to educate him to work per hectare incense. If not Huaktera incense on the altar, the altar has not yet completed its sanctity, and again - the priest fails to work the inner sin blood work.

As stated above, is engaged in general Sugyitino internal sins: Per youth of the community which, per Cohen Messiah hairy Chopper sin of Yom Kippur. Therefore, the face value of things according to the laws referred to in the issue tend to all those sins. Here, a "light beam" on a site bearing our attention to this, Maimonides years these laws work only the laws of Yom Kippur. Laws made sacrifices, where he explains the Book of youth Edinim Chopper Cohen messiah thing, did not mention Maimonides to these laws.

A "light beam" basically satisfied with the comment about the omission of Maimonides. Ahgree"aza Brisk speed with an explanation here offered what, in light of the issue of "shot out of place" (above Wed - as'), is not the place to discuss it.

One of the points that Ahazachiron Ora Vahgree"aza Fund is Maimonides Change the proximity of these two laws. He wrote in the 'walking the Yom Kippur (Laws as - as "):

"Ceiling of the Hall of emphysema was not it, said the tent of meeting.
Altar not Nathanach Jizah not pipe it, said the altar of incense. "

I think the link between the two laws will help to explain the position of Maimonides. Two laws before us deals, in fact, the temple structure and its vessels. It necessarily the most significant structure in relation to the work of Yom Kippur. The Yom Kippur excused the high priest (and with it the entire priestly tribe), the mercy seat the whole of Israel. In this respect, this work is very parallel to two other internal sins: It atones for all the congregation of Israel Ssgiago offense, and that the priest who takes on the messiah. but, on Yom Kippur atonement There is also another dimension, explicitly mentioned in the verses of Parshat "after death":

"Kfar the Holy Temple and the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar will make and the priests and all the audience will make."

Even before the atonement for the priests and with the audience, from a village priest of the temple and tabernacle. In this context, it is worth mentioning another verse interprets "Tetzave" seal the affair altar of incense;

"Kfar Aharon the screening of blood a year sin villages a year will make it throughout your generations is most holy to God."

Here too, there is a special atonement on Yom Kippur, which concerns the altar of incense.

It seems the bar, that the Temple, which is the connection point between Israel and link their father in heaven, atonement and purity needed to refresh and renew the alliance between the Israeli Knesset and the Almighty. Parchment also expresses a special link between Israel and God, and therefore need the same altar of incense Atonement "one year." Renewal of the covenant - through the temple altar of incense - is the focus of Yom Kippur as a whole.

It is possible, at this point is underlying Maimonides ruled. In his opinion, the various laws relating to the blood work did the same in all the sins of the internal. However, these two laws, concerning, as noted, the building of the Temple and its vessels, on Yom Kippur rather significant. When asking the priest to atone for the temple, it is necessary that the Temple will powerfully built, and tools are placed in it, especially the altar of incense, can fill the role. This unique requirement on Yom Kippur is actually due to the important task faced by an agent with the high priest of Israel's holy day.
