1 Yoma 25b - echav hacohanim on Sun Dec 22, 2013 12:41 am

The gemara here says that ben Katin redesigned the kior with twelve faucets, so that twelve אחיו הכהנים who are doing the tamid shel shachar can all wash at the same time.

First, I'm curious about the language אחיו הכהנים - I see that it is used 35 times in maseches Yoma.

But anyhow, what's the idea of wanting all twelve cohanim to wash at the same time? It's not like there's a hurry: some of them are bringing the limbs of the tamid onto the ramp, and that isn't going to happen for about an hour after the tamid is slaughtered, as it needs to be skinned and cleaned and cut up.
