Summary of Today's Chumash
The third aliyah contains a discussion of the portions to be given to the Leviim and the Kohanim. As discussed earlier in the Torah, the idea is repeated here that the Kohanim and Leviim had no portion of inheritance in the land of Israel. G-d says that He is their portion. This aliyah contains details of which offerings brought by Jews will be eaten by the Kohanim and Leviim.
