Vayikra Question 1

Weekly Parsha Questions

Vayikra Question 1

Yechiel Shaffer

At the start of the 3rd book of the Torah, we begin with a calling to Moshe. G-d calls out to Moshe in an attempt to bring him closer to the Mishkan.

What is unusual about the word וַיִּקְרָא when written inside the Torah?

With the shrinking of the ‘א’ of Vayikra – the Ba’al HaTurim comments that this was to accentuate the humility of Moshe. Vayikra means God called to Moshe, Vayikar (without the ‘א’) means God happened upon Moshe.

Why does the Torah make this public statement about Moshe’s humility?

What is to happen in the establishment of the Mishkan that will call on the deepest depths of the humility of Moshe?
