Is Moshe Really Left Out Of The Parsha? By Nathan Abramchayev, Grade 10 L’elui Nishmat my loving grandfathers and uncles יהודה בן אהרון וגם גבריאל בן טובה וגם מיכאל בן שרה וגם רפאל בן רבקה
“He shall then tear it apart, with its feathers still attached, without splitting it completely”
The Midrash Rabba says that this verse comes to teach us to be concerned for the poor. This offering of the birds is reserved for the poor, who can't afford meat. Hashem expects the Kohen Gadol to tear the bird with the feathers still attached and burn it. Even though the burning of the feathers of a bird are one of the worst smell and we normally offer nice smelling offerings, nevertheless, Hashem says that we should burn it to show how much we care for the poor.
