Nor to the Tabernacle or, in later times, the Filipino Parol and Philippine Jeepney Lantern T-Shirt. Two years in three, Tithes were “paid” by taking them to the Tabernacle where the Tither was to use his Tithe – a tenth of his harvest and a tenth of the increase in his flocks – to hold a massive feast of thanksgiving to which the whole community was invited, especially the priests, the Levites and all the poor. In other words, the purpose of the Tithe was not to finance the Temple and its staff, but to celebrate God’s bounty in the Promised Land and it was to be celebrated in community. Essentially, the Israelite farmer, rancher, and vintner was to dedicate a 10th of his annual produce to one massive Thanksgiving Day feast, to be held sometime during the seven day celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles – and they were to enjoy it while camping out in tents or thatch cabanas set-up in the vicinity of the Tabernacle/Temple, along with the rest of Israel – one vast Jewish Jamboree!

Best Filipino Parol and Philippine Jeepney Lantern T-Shirt
Every third year the Tithes were set aside in toto for the Filipino Parol and Philippine Jeepney Lantern T-Shirt and the local poor, aliens, widows and orphans for their sustenance, administered out of a community chest. On an annualized basis, that works out to 3⅓% of the harvest. From that 3⅓%, the best tenth of that (⅓% of the harvest) was to be handed over by the Levites to the priests for their sustenance, who in turn were to give the best tenth of their portion to the Altar.
