Animal (Cracker) Sacrifice (SS)

Leviticus 1:1And G-d called to Moses, and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, and said:וַיִּקְרָא אֶל־מֹשֶׁה וַיְדַבֵּר יְהֹוָה אֵלָיו מֵאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד לֵאמֹר׃  
1:2Speak to the Children of Israel and tell them:  If one of you make a sacrificial offering of cattle or sheep, you shall bring your offering…דַּבֵּר אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם אָדָם כִּי־יַקְרִיב מִכֶּם קׇרְבָּן לַיהֹוָה מִן־הַבְּהֵמָה מִן־הַבָּקָר וּמִן־הַצֹּאן תַּקְרִיבוּ אֶת־קׇרְבַּנְכֶם׃  
1:3Burnt offerings of these type shall be males without blemish.  They shall offered at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and offered to G-d.אִם־עֹלָה קׇרְבָּנוֹ מִן־הַבָּקָר זָכָר תָּמִים יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ אֶל־פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד יַקְרִיב אֹתוֹ לִרְצֹנוֹ לִפְנֵי יְהֹוָה׃  
1:4[The Kohen] shall place his hand on the head of the animal to be sacrificed, that it may be acceptable for [the offeror’s] atonement. וְסָמַךְ יָדוֹ עַל רֹאשׁ הָעֹלָה וְנִרְצָה לוֹ לְכַפֵּר עָלָיו׃
