The Blessing of the Ordinary
Parashat VaYikra

Dena Weiss

After having built the mishkan (tabernacle) at the end of Sefer Shemot, Parashat VaYikra teaches about the sacrifices that will be brought there.  The rules of what may be sacrificed, in what manner, and for what reason are complex and sometimes tedious. While one might assume that the place wherein God and the Jewish people have their most intimate encounters would be characterized by excitement and wonder, our parashah teaches the value of engaging with the sacred quality of the mundane.
