Twenty-Four Priestly Orders

Question

Hello!

King David instituted 24 priestly orders to serve in the Temple. For how long did each order serve? Two weeks, a month?

 

Thanks.

2 weeks

Answers

  1. Each order would serve twice a year for one week at a time. As well as that, all the Priests would serve together during the (Three) Major Festivals.
