Subject: Re: Priestly Garments

QUESTION: What is the symbolic meaning of each of the garments worn
by the high priest. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you.

This was Rav Hirsch's specialty. If you get ahold of his commentary on the
Torah you can find his symbolic explanations in the Parshah of Tsaveh.

It would be helpful first to read his essay GROUNDLINES OF JEWISH SYMBOLISM
(reprinted in the 3rd volume of HIrsch's collected works by Feldheim).
