The Immersion of the High Priest

The remaining four immersions that take place during the day are done in a ritual bath atop the Parvha Chamber. A white lined sheet is held up separating the High Priest from the onlookers. This is done as a reminder to all onlookers that the High Priest will administer the Atonement service wearing white garments only.
