Summary of Today's Chumash
In the fifth aliyah we read the descriptions of the continual daily offering to be offered twice each day, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon. These verses are recited every morning and afternoon before the Shacharis and Mincha.
Also described here are the Sabbath offering and the Rosh Chodesh offering, which are read as part of the Musaf prayer on those days. In all these cases these passages are currently read as part of our prayers as a substitute for the actual services in the Bais Hamikdash, may it be speedily rebuilt in our days, Amen.
