(a) We have learned that the Tevilos on Yom Kipur took place in the Mikveh in the Beis ha'Parvah.
Why was it called by that name?

(a) The Pasuk in Yechezkel writes "ve'Lavshu Begadim Acherim ve'Lo Yekadeshu es ha'Am be'Vigdehem".
What does "ve'Lavshu Begadim Acheirim" refer to?

(b) Why do Chazal interpret "Acherim" to mean *less* valuable rather than *more* valuable?

(c) What are the Halachic implications of "ve'Lo Yekadeshu es ha'Am be'Vigdehem"?

(a) After he had concluded the Avodas Tzibur, the Kohen Gadol was permitted to wear the shirt that his mother had sewn for him for the Avodas Yachid. What does Avodas Yachid mean in this context?

(b) On what grounds does Rashi reject the explanation that it refers to the reading of the Parshah (quoted in the Mishnah on 68b) which could be read 'in his own cloak'?

(c) On what condition was he permitted to do the Avodah wearing that shirt?

(d) Then what is the Chidush? Why would we have thought that he is *not* permitted to do so?
