Working in the Mikdash

Shekalim Daf 14: Continuing the discussion of those appointed in the mikdash. Our daf starts with Nechunia who was the digger of wells and moves on to issues of punishment of tzaddikim and the concept of צדיק ורע לו is hinted at. We also see the power of the prayer of a Tzaddik.

Moving on to other people appointed in the mikdash and their skills or stories that we learn from them or about them. Followed by more complex stories about Beit Garmu and Beit Avtinus who were responsible for the לחם הפנים וקטורת respectively.  The next mishna describes the system used to insure no cheating in the treasury of the mikdash. Aggaddata about Moshe Rabenu is mentioned.

The last misnah on the page discusses the system used in buying the needs for Korbanot to insure that there wasn’t any cheating.
