Rituals of Purification: Wash Away Spiritual Dirt

In Parshas Pekuday, specifically in the seventh aliya, the Torah details the creation of the copper laver and its base from the mirrors of the legions. The priests in the Temple were commanded to wash their hands and feet in this laver before offering sacrifices or entering the sanctuary. This act of purification was essential to cleanse themselves of any spiritual impurities or personal temptations that could disrupt their service to Hashem.
