Why does the Torah insert the word "Toras" by the Minchah?

1.

Rashi and Ramban: This teaches us that all the Menachos, including those of a Kohen (which are completely burned and which do not therefore require a Kemitzah to be taken) 1 require oil and frankincense.

2.

Ba'al ha'Turim: Refer to 6:2:4:2*.


1

See Torah Temimah.

2)

What are the implications of "Hakrev osah"?

1.

Rashi: "Hakrev osah" means that the Kohen takes the Minchah. 1


1

The equivalent of the Holachah with regard to a Korban Beheimah.

3)

What is "Lifnei Hashem El P'nei ha'Mizbe'ach"?

1.

Rashi: "Lifnei Hashem" means on the west side of the Mizbe'ach, which is the closest to the Heichal; whereas "Pnei ha'Mizbe'ach" implies the south side, where the ramp is situated. Consequently, the Minchah is taken to the south-western corner where the Kohen performs the Kemitzah.

QUESTIONS ON RASHI

4)

Rashi writes that "Lifnei Hashem" is west, and "Pnei ha'Mizbe'ach" is the south, so Hagashah is to the south-west corner. We should say that the entire Azarah is "Lifnei Hashem", like it is for Semichah; the entire north fulfills "Tzafonah Lifnei Hashem" for Shechitas Kodshei Kodoshim!

1.

Korban Aharon (on Sifra Parshah 3, 7): When one might have thought that something may be outside, Lifnei Hashem teaches in the Azarah. If I already know that it is in the Azarah, Lifnei Hashem teaches in the west.
