Short Thought:

You shall observe to offer it to Me in its appointed time, two each day, a regular offering (28:2-3)

The “appointed time” of the regular offerings is every day.


The communal offerings include temiddin–“regular” or “perpetual” offerings brought each day in the same format–and mussafin–“additional” offerings brought on special occasions (Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, the festivals) which differ in accordance with the nature of the day.

In our own lives there also exists this division: there are the “routine” things, such as the fifteen breaths we take each minute and the job we troop to each workday; and there are the “special” things we do once in a while or once in a lifetime. Both are crucial to a fulfilling and satisfing life. The offerings–and their present-day substitute, prayer–include both temiddin and mussafin, to teach us that our relationship with G-d should likewise embrace the surety of the routine on the one hand, and the excitement of the occasional on the other.

But when speaking of the two daily offerings, the Torah uses the term mo’ed, “appointed time”–a phrase generally reserved for the festivals and other occasionally occurring observances. This means that the Torah also urges us to transcend these categorizations and experience a sense of specialty and occasion also in the “regular” rhythms of life. As Rashi comments on the verse, “The ‘appointed time’ of the regular offerings is every day.”

(From the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe)


One Shabbat  morning, the rabbi noticed little Nathan staring at the memorial plaques in  the lobby of the synagogue.
They were covered with names, and American  flags stood on both sides.
The seven-year old boy had been staring at the  plaques for some time, so the rabbi walked up and said quietly, “Shabbat  shalom, Nathan.”
“Shabbat shalom, Rabbi.”
The rabbi lingered a little  longer.
“Yes, son?”
“What is this?”
“It’s a memorial,  Nathan, to all the young men and women who died in the  service.”
Silently, they stood together, staring at the  plaques.
Then little Nathan whispered, “Was it the Friday night or the  Shabbat morning service?”
