Chapter 3, Misha 2, 3 Levels of poverty according to Rav Beivai. One with curly hair may not be a Temple treasurer! Sources for the importance of conducting yourself in a manner that is above suspicion. The alacrity of the members of Rabbam Gamliel’s household to make their half-shekel contribution. Rabbi Pinchas ben Yair’s famous ladder of character and spiritual refinement: alacrity leads to cleanliness to purity to holiness to humility to fear of sin to piety to holy spirit to resurrection of the dead to the coming of Elijah who will announce the coming of Moshiach!
