In this week’s parsha, we are taught about sacrifices. For some reason, the last alef in the first word in parsha Vayikra is abnormally small. What can that teach us?
Life is a roller coaster; it has it’s ups and downs, which can come in very quick succession. For example, it’s happened to me more than once that I had a really good day one day, and had a bad one directly afterwards. During the good days, it’s easy to see Hashem. But what about when life isn’t so fair? Maintaining a connection to hashem, even when your life sucks, is one of the greatest challenges we face in this era. We must remember: vayikra-Hashem is calling to us, even when we’re down in the dumps.
