Parsha of the Week

         Hashem's Prophecy to Balaam was introduced by ויקר (Vayikra without an Alph).While Hashem's Prophecy to Moshe was introduced by ויקרא (Vayikra with an Alph).There is a question which arises,  why is the word ויקרא spelled in the Torah with a small Alph ? The Baal Ha Turim explains that after the fact that Hashem instructed Moshe to write an Alph as an expression of affection, Moshe humbly wrote a small Alph. Furthermore Rabbi Buam of P'schishca explains that Alph means to teach, Thus implying that one should learn to always be small and humble like the small Alph.  

Shabbat Shalom! Have a Good Shabbos!
