“And if a soul brings a meal offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour. He shall pour oil over it and place frankincense upon it.” (Leviticus 2:1)

Questions: In every other mention of the offerings one can voluntarily bring in Leviticus, the individual bringing the offering is referred to as a person or a man, in Hebrew: “Adam.” However, when speaking of the meal offering, the person is referred to as a soul, in Hebrew: “nefesh.” What is unique about the meal offering that the person who brings it is referred to in this way? What differentiates a “man” from a “soul”? Why is one of the simplest offerings the one offered by a “soul” rather than a “man”?

Ideas: Serve anything made from “fine flour,” olive oil or spices. Artisan bread dipped in olive oil, or even cinnamon-raisin bread. Spice cookies or cinnamon buns are a great choice too!
