Behar: Kli Yakar: Shabbat as Manna

The 7th of Iyar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Shlomo Ephraim of Luntchitz, author of Kli Yakar: “The land shall observe a Shabbat for God (Vayikra 25:2).” All the miracles of the sixth year that will provide enough for the seventh, and the sense of satisfaction that will be granted so that all will feel full, is the same as the miracle of the Manna, which came in a double portion on the Sixth day to provide for the Shabbat as well, and came with a blessing of fullness.


We can use this as a Kavanah in our Shabbat prayers when we ask God to, “Satisfy us with Your Good.”
