It’s a Miracle!
Our Sages talk about 10 amazing miracles that happened regularly in the Beis HaMikdash.
Here are two of them:
- The meat of the Korbanos was not always burned or eaten immediately. Sometimes there was a huge “traffic jam,” due to the huge influx of people waiting to bring their Korbanos. After all, there was only one Mizbei’ach to offer them on. Sometimes the waiting period lasted for days… and there were no freezers and no refrigerators to store them in. Uggghh. The raw meat would lay in the hot sun. Still, NEVER, not even one time did the meat rot!
2. In the place of the slaughtering which was outside, it was what you may call – “A No Fly Zone”! Not one fly was ever seen there!
