Summary of Today's Chumash
The second aliyah continues the discussion of sacrifices, but here discussing bird, meal, and baked-offerings used for sacrifices. Rashi points out that the words "ishai rayach nichoach l'Hashem" (meaning "an offering made by fire of a sweet savor to G-d") -- used in reference to both the animal sacrifices and the bird sacrifices, indicates that it doesn't matter whether one offers much or little, as long as one directs his heart to Heaven.
