Shalom, Yoel!
The golden bells in the priestly garments always intrigued me too. But I don’t believe they were meant to alert people who were impure to not enter in contact with the Priest, because since these garments should be used only when the High Priest was serving the Temple, there would not be impure people there.
Thank you, Yoel, for you amazing podcasts!
