Knock Knock

by Bardichev (See all authors)

This weeks Parsha begins with the famous word Vayikra - with the small Alef.

Much has been said about the small Alef.

Bardichev will attempt to add a relevant message.

In the perek Tehillim that we say every Friday night right before lecha dodi, there are 7 references to Hashem's voice: With strength, beauty, breaks cedar trees, etc.

Yet in this Parsha, it seems that Hashem called out to Moshe in a small voice.

So which one is it?

Here goes:

Hashem calls out to us all the time:

"Knock Knock"

Nice and soft...

"Kol dodi dofek, pischu li - the sounds of my beloved knocks, open for me".

"Knock knock"

"Pssst, hey you, it's Hashem"

"Knock knock, I want you to let me into your life!"

"Psssstttt"...

But if we don't hear the quiet knocks, they start to get louder...

"KNOCK KNOCK!!" (the school of hard-knocks)

"I WANT YOU TO PAY ATTENTION!!"

Yes, Moshe Rabbainu "gets it" on the first vayikra - with the small Alef.

We need to pay attention to the little things in life...

It's Hashem saying ..

"Knock knock"... let Me in.

Good Shabbos
