The miracle of the showbread


"In the Temple they used to hold up the table for those who came to Jerusalem for the festivals, and show them the lechem hapanim [showbread] on the table and say, 'See how beloved you are before Gd!' For Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi taught that a great miracle occurred for the showbread: it was as warm when removed from the table as it had been when first placed on the table [a week earlier]."

(Talmud, Menachot 96b)

Have a great day,
