Table Talk: Vayikra II Print E-mail

VayikraCover Or Separation: “If the anointed Kohen will sin, bringing guilt upon the people; for his sin that he committed he shall offer a young bull, unblemished, to God as a sin offering. The anointed Kohen shall take from the blood of the bull and bring it to the Tent of Meeting. The Kohen shall dip his forefinger into the blood; he shall sprinkle some of the blood seven times before God toward the Curtain of the Holy.” This blood is unusual in its being sprinkled on the Curtain of the Holy rather than the Altar. When the Sanhedrin brings a “Bull for a Matter That Was Hidden,” the blood is sprinkled toward the Face of the Curtain. The Kohen Gadol’s is sprinkled toward the “Curtain of the Holy,” and the Sanhedrin’s, toward the “Face of the Curtain.” The same place is described two different ways for the two offerings. Why? Hint: There are times that the Curtain is described as a separation between the Holy and Holy of Holies, and there are other times when it is described as Protection for the Ark.


An Opportunity for Closeness

“He called to Moshe, and God spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, ‘Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them.” There seem to be extra mentions of communication: “Called,” “Spoke,” “Saying,” “Speak,” and, “say.”The Ba’al HaTurim does not describe Dibbur as speaking forcefully, but as “appeasement.” God wants to appease the people He is asking to spend money. Why is it followed by, “and say to them?” (The same thing occurs in the Mitzvah of Tzitzit) Hint: This is the first time that the Torah has used the word “Korban” - Drawing Close - rather than “Zevach.”

The Covenant of Salt

Rashi describes this as God’s Covenant with the Lower Waters from the second day of Creation. Why is salt, separated from the water, God’s response to appease the Lower Waters?
