Question: To belong to Levites, is it a privilege or a responsibility?
Answer: It is both privilege and responsibility because these two concepts are inextricably connected. Levites work among the people, in society, among the masses. They educate people by being a conduit between the Cohens and the masses.
The Cohens are the carriers of the upper knowledge, which is not connected to the people. Let’s say they are like academics. However, besides the academy, there are also institutes, technical schools, and various institutions where people are educated. These are for the Levites, the teachers of the masses.
The Cohens and Levites within us are desires that tell us how we should behave in everyday life in order to become similar to the Creator in general.
It is a big responsibility to be a Levite. Not everyone is worthy of this position because you can be called a Levite not just because you were born in this social category.
Question: What does it mean that the Levites cannot work the land, but they can have cities and pastures?
Answer: The Levites had no right to have their own land. They could only live by serving people and people paid them for it. Therefore, the entire territory of the state was divided into districts where they taught the people.
Question: So, working the land means working directly with the will to receive?
Answer: No, they were already above that and could only teach.
