Leviticus 21:8 "You shall sanctify him...he shall be holy to you"

Mr. White and Mr. Lawrence are neighbors.

They both take an early bus to work every day.

They spend their day at their jobs and often arrive home at the same time.

Mr. White works in a department store while Mr. Lawrence works for the State Department.

Because Mr. Lawrence has such an important job, people treat him with extra respect.

The priests carry out the service of HaShem in the Beit HaMikdash.

Therefore, we are commanded to regard them in a special way and treat them with honor and respect.
