Daily Chumash Wednesday Tzav: The inauguration of Aaron and his sons



  1. The inauguration of Aaron and his sons:
  • Hashem told Moshe to take Aaron and his sons and perform the inauguration. He is to take the clothing, the anointing oil, the sacrifices which include the Chatas cow, the two rams and the basket of Matzos.
  • The entire congregation is to be gathered to the opening of the Ohel Moed.
  • Dressing Aaron: Moshe did as instructed, and bathed Aaron and his sons in water and dressed them. He placed on Aaron the Kutones, and wound the belt around him, the Meil, the Eiphod, and the belt of the Eiphod, the Choshen and the Urim Vetumim. He placed the Mitznefes on his head, and on the Mitznefes, towards his face, he placed the Tzitz.
  • Anointing with oil: Moshe took the anointing oil and anointed the Mishkan and all of its vessels, and sanctified it. He sprinkled the oil onto the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its vessels with the oil, as well as the Kiyor. He poured the anointing oil on the head of Aaron to sanctify him.
  • Dressing the sons of Aaron: Moshe clothed also the sons of Aaron in their four priestly garments.
