Myshmar is a Hebrew Word that means "Watch". In the Talmud it refers to either a Cohen (mainly) or Levite (also)
but it has come to mean those "on guard." In fact, in the Yeshiva Movement, studying Torah late into the evening over the weekend
was called "Myshmar" (spelled nowadays Mishmar), as those students were "on guard" for the rest of the population.
