I have a confession to make.
I feel like I’ve never understood the concept of honor (kavod) and glory (tiferet) with regards to the priestly garments.
Then I came across the picture of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Salvatore A. Giunta.
It struck me. That’s honor and glory. See the look in his eyes. See his bearing. It’s all brought together by the dignity of his uniform.
