Tzav continues the laws of sacrifices begun in the previous parsha, this time from the perspective of the priests performing the ritual. Rules are set out for burnt and grain offerings, sin and guilt offerings, and peace offerings, each with its own specific procedures. Details are then set out for the induction of Aaron and his sons into office, prior to the inauguration of the service of the Sanctuary.
