Summary of Today's Chumash
The fourth aliyah discusses endowments of money to the temple expressed as values of people, animals, and real estate. That is to say, a person may vow that he will give the value of himself to the temple. This aliyah describes what monetary values are to be used for men and women of different ages, and for animals and houses. An endowment of someone or something is considered as if that person or thing itself was given to the temple. The Midrash contains a story of a judge Yiftach who vowed that if he wins the war, whatever comes out of his house he will sacrifice to G-d. Unfortunately his daughter came out. He was ignorant of the Torah, he should have known that he could endow her value instead, but he didn't know.
