Arakhin (Arachin, ערכין) (vows [of the value of a person]) is the fifth tractate in Seder Kodashim (holies).


Only chapters 1–6 based on Leviticus 27:1–8, deals with the vows of donating one's prescribed value as part of the dedication to the Temple, as well as other gifts to bedek habayis, or the treasury of the Temple. Chapters 7-8 explain the redemption from the Temple of a field one has inherited as derived from Leviticus 27:16–25.
