Acharei Mot: Chapter 30

The Vav has a silent Aleph in it


We learn the inner meaning of the Aleph in the pronunciation of Vav as Vav Aleph Vav. Similar inferences can be drawn from the pronunciation of Nun as Nun Vav Nun and from the open and closed Mem of Mem. We are reminded again of the importance of the priest in his role of awakening peace above and below.
