Chapter 3, Mishna 3-7
Who is deemed credible when he says his earthenware vessels have not contracted ritual impurity, and who is not? Why does the answer change during pilgrimage festivals? How would the priests serving in the Temple purify its service vessels? Was the Table of the Shewbread susceptible to impurity? What about the Menorah? Beautiful teaching: when the Temple stood, the holy altar atoned for us, now that the Temple is gone, our dinner table atones for us. Why?
