Vaykra Text Message

Parashat Vaykra (G-d called Moses)

The Book of Leviticus starts with the word Vayikrah. That word has a parculiarity, the letter Aleph is smaller than the rest of the letter.
As you may imagine, many explanations were given.
The one I like the most is that when Moses was writing the Torah up in Mount Sinai, a little bit of the ink spilled on his face.
Therefore two things: 1) His face was shining 2) He had less ink and the Aleph became smaller.
It would be great if we realize that in our daily tasks, we can "spill" some holiness and shine.

In memory of my beloved mother and teacher Miriam Rachel bat Israel Itzchak Z"L
