Dress-Code for Divine Dining: The priestly service of removing the ash from the altar

Each morning a priest would remove from the altar a handful of the ashes from the sacrifices of the previous night and place them on the ground alongside it. When the remaining pile on the altar grew to be unduly manageable, the ashes would be removed and deposited in a designated location outside Jerusalem. This class will discuss the priestly dress-code for these procedures and the timely, spiritual relevance for our lives.
