The Talmud says read the first word of the Torah as Boroh Shis
- Hashem created a cavity under the Mizbeach.
What does this mean ?

Rambam explains that the Mizbeach was the site of
5 great historical events -
The Akeida
The offerings Noach brought
Where Kayin & Hevel brought
Where Adam brought &
That is from where his body was formed !

The connection - from the place where we can achieve atonement that is from where Hashem created people !
Now may be a good time for a gem of Torah study.
