The Temple Institute: A Day in the Life of the Holy Temple: The Incense Service is Once in a Lifetime

The Incense Service is Once in a Lifetime

Thus, in order to give all the priests an opportunity to avail themselves of this Divine blessing, and so that no one man should "monopolize" such favor by receiving it more than once, it was established that unlike the other aspects of the Temple service, each priest may officiate at the incense offering only once... and afterwards, he may not apply again. The priests who arrived at this third gathering knew that if they merit to perform this service, it will be an opportunity they shall have just once in a lifetime - for the winner will not even be allowed to participate in the drawing again.
