Following the procedure G-d prescribed (Numbers 8:5-22), Moses inducted the Levites into Tabernacle service. The induction ceremony included sprinkling them with the ashes of the Red Heifer which was prepared the day beforehand.

In today's "Nasi" reading (see "Nasi of the Day" in Nissan 1), we read of the gift bought by the nasi of the tribe of Zebulun, Eliav ben Cheilon, for the inauguration of the Mishkan.
Text of today's Nasi in Hebrew
A dish of food will fill one stomach, but the next in line is still hungry.
Even a furnace demands more fuel as freezing souls gather to absorb its heat.
But a light that guides one person will guide a hundred.
Be that light.
