About

There are three separate categories of priestly garments:

  • The eight "golden garments" of the High Priest's uniform, which he wears all year round. They are: The ephod, breastplate, robe, tunic, turban, belt, crown, and pants, mentioned in Shemos 28:4
  • The four "white garments" worn by the High Priest on Yom Kippur. These are: The tunic, pants, turban, and the belt, mentioned in Vayikra 16:4
  • The four-piece uniform of the ordinary priests. These are the same as the ones worn by the High Priest on Yom Kippur and are mentioned in Shemos 28:40-42
