Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How were the ashes disposed of in the Temple?
וְהֵסִ֥יר אֶת־מֻרְאָת֖וֹ בְּנֹצָתָ֑הּ וְהִשְׁלִ֨יךְ אֹתָ֜הּ אֵ֤צֶל הַמִּזְבֵּ֙חַ֙ קֵ֔דְמָה אֶל־מְק֖וֹם הַדָּֽשֶׁן׃
He shall remove its crop with its contents, and cast it into the place of the ashes, at the east side of the altar.
All ashes were removed daily and brought to the floor of the courtyard on the east side of the ramp leading up to the Altar.
The ashes would be miraculously “swallowed up” there. This included the ashes of the different altars and the Menorah.
(Rashi, Yoma 21b)
