In the ninth chapter, Megillat Esther lists the various mitzvot of Purim. From among this roster, two mitzvot appear to be similar to one another: mishloach manot (sending food to friends) and matanot la-evyonim (gifts to the needy). Although each mitzva consists of an act of giving, the two salient differences between them concern the substance of the gift and the gift’s recipient. Matanot la-evyonim is (1) monetary charity to (2) a poor person, mishloach manot is (1) a gift of food (2) distributed to friends, regardless of their economic station. In structure, however, the two mitzvot appear to be similar.

The Book of Leviticus is called by our sages “Torat Kohanim,” the Torah of Priests. Yet when we read this book, we discern that a part of it deals also with topics that do not have to do only with the kohanim, the sons of Aaron, but with the entire Jewish People.

At first glance, the first word of our parasha and sefer, “Vayikra”- “and He called,” seems almost anticlimactic. With the completion of the Mishkan’s construction in last week’s parasha, we would have expected the inaugural celebration. Instead, we are to wait several weeks (in the Torah readings) for the occasion. Almost impatiently, Hashem summons Moshe into the Ohel Moed. There are more laws to learn.
