Deuteronomy 18:7-8 "Then, he shall serve in the name of the L-rd, his G‑d as all his brothers, the Levites, do...They shall have like portions"

Ari is in third grade. He likes school and finds many of class activities fun and enjoyable.

There are many projects and displays in his classroom that must be cared for.

The weather chart has to be arranged daily, the gold fish have to be fed, the plants watered, books passed out, stars stuck on bulletins and much more.

In order to take care of all these projects, Ari's teacher appoints monitors. All the pupils take turns doing the different activities and in this way everyone gets a chance.

The priests and Levites represent the Jewish people, carrying out the service of HaShem in the Beit HaMikdash.

This is a great honor and privilege.

They are commanded to make sure that all priests and Levites have equal opportunities to serve in the Beit HaMikdash.

The priests and Levites were divided into twenty-four groups and organized in work shifts which rotated weekly.
