  1. The descendants of Aaron:
  • The following are the offspring of Aaron and Moshe: Nadav the Bechor, Avihu, Elazar and Itamar. All were anointed as Kohanim. Nadav and Avihu died before Hashem when they offered foreign incense. They did not have children.


  1. The job of the Levites to guard the Mishkan:
  • Hashem spoke to Moshe saying he should appoint the tribe of Levi to be of assistance to Aaron and serve him. They are to guard the Mishkan and its utensils.
  • In exchange for the firstborns: The Levites were taken from amongst the Jewish people in exchange for the firstborns. “The firstborns became Mine on the day I smote the firstborn Egyptians, and I sanctified the firstborn humans and animals to be Mine. The Levites are thus Mine in place of the firstborns.”
