Summary of The Weekly Torah Reading:
Note: The Shabbos Torah Reading is divided into 7 sections. Each section
is called an Aliya [literally: Go up] since for each Aliya, one person
"goes up" to make a bracha [blessing] on the Torah Reading.
Additional instructions regarding the Olah - ascent offering, and
the Mincha - meal offering are detailed.
The special meal offering of the Kohain Gadol and the special
inaugural meal offering of the regular Kohain is described. This was the same
offering in both cases; however, the Kohain Gadol brought his offering every
day while the regular Kohain did so only on the day of his inauguration into
the service of the Bais Hamikdash. Additional laws of the sin offering, and
the guilt offering are detailed.
Additional laws of the peace offering are detailed along with those
portions of the offering that must be shared with the Kohain.
4th, 5th, 6th, & 7th Aliyot:
The remainder of the Parsha describes the first
seven days of the inaugural process for Aharon and his four sons. Moshe
functioned as the Kohain Gadol to officiate over the inaugural process, and
Aharon and his sons were forbidden to leave the Mishkan the entire time.
