There are three Machanos (designated holy areas) within the city of Yerushalayim, corresponding to their respective areas in the Midbar:

1.The entire area within the walls of Yerushalayim, excluding Har ha'Bayis, is Machaneh Yisrael. This area corresponds to the area of encampment of the twelve tribes in the Midbar. Kodshim Kalim, Ma'aser Sheni, Neta Revai and Bikurim must be eaten within this area. Machaneh Yisrael is off-limits to Metzora'im. Machaneh Yisrael is off-limits to Metzora'im (see Background to Zevachim 102:3). According to the Gemara in Menachos (95a), this Halachah applied even while Benei Yisrael were traveling in the desert. (Metzora'im are also forbidden to enter any walled city in Eretz Yisrael.)

2.The area between the Azarah and the wall encompassing Har ha'Bayis, including the Ezras Nashim, is Machaneh Leviyah. This corresponds to the area around the Mishkan, where the Leviyim encamped. This area is prohibited not only to Metzora'im, but also to Zavin, Zavos, Nidos and Yoldos.

3.The entire area within the Azarah (i.e. the Ezras Yisrael and the Ezras Kohanim that contains the Beis ha'Mikdash, the Mizbe'ach, and various Lishkos or chambers - not the Ezras Nashim) is Machaneh Shechinah (excluding the area under the gate to the Azarah known as Sha'ar Nikanor). This corresponds to the area of the Mishkan [within the Kela'im/curtains]. This area is even prohibited to a person who is Tamei Mes. Kodshei Kodashim, the remainder of the Log of oil of the Metzora and the Menachos must be eaten within this area.


(a)The Sanhedrin (the Jewish Supreme Court) must bring a Korban if they issued a mistaken ruling permitting an act that carries a Chiyuv Kares and the Jewish people in Eretz Yisrael (the majority of the people or the majority of the tribes) conducted themselves based on this ruling. The sages bring a young bull as a Chatas on behalf of each of the tribes. The people are exempt, since they relied on the Beis Din ha'Gadol. If the sin committed was idolatry, the sages bring a young bull as an Olah and a goat as a Chatas for each tribe. Each of these bulls is called a Par He'elem Davar Shel Tzibur (RAMBAM Hilchos Shegagos 12:1).

(b)The blood of these bulls is sprinkled in the Heichal on the Paroches and the Mizbe'ach ha'Zahav. The Sheyarei ha'Dam (the remainder of the blood) was poured on the Western Yesod (foundation) of the Mizbe'ach. The remains of the bulls were burned outside of the city of Yerushalayim (Vayikra 4:13-21).
