Why does the Torah refer to the Heichal as "Kodesh"?


Ramban: Because the Paroches divided between the Heichal (Kodesh) and the D'vir (Jodesh ha'Kodashim), and it is as if it had said 'the sockets of the Kodesh and the sockets of the Kodesh ha'Kodashim'.


How were the hundred Kikar distributed among the sockets of the Kodesh and those of the Paroches?


Rashi: Ninety-six Kikar were used to support the forty-eight planks of the Kodesh (two per plank) and four, to support the pillars on which the Paroches was suspended.
