The Temple Institute: A Day in the Life of the Holy Temple: The Third Daily Lottery: The Incense Service

The Third Daily Lottery: The Incense Service

The third lottery was unique. This was held to determine who would have a chance to officiate at the incense offering, which according to Jewish tradition (see Zohar I 130:A, for example) was the most beloved part of the Temple service in G-d's eyes; it was influential in subduing evil, and its characteristic quality aided in amplifying the aspect of Divine mercy and benevolence in the world.
