The death of Aharon’s sons, Nadav and Avihu, occurs in the midst of the joyous inauguration ceremony of the mishkan (tabernacle). The Sages explain that Aharon’s sons were so moved by the closeness they felt to Hashem (God) that they desired to bring an offering of their own into the Holy of Holies inside the mishkan pictured above. Though the intentions of Nadav and Avihu were pure, theur offering was unauthorized and in turn, they were punished by death. Hashem teaches the important lessons that everyone, even those who are powerful and respected within the community, must follow the same rules and be held to the same standards as everyone else.
