Don't miss the Mapik!

The first עליה of the פרשה contains many instances of a מפיק ה. For many of them, it might not be entirely crucial for the meaning of the word as its meaning is clear without the מפיק ה. However, for words like אִישָׁהּ where missing the מפיק ה would change the meaing of the word from "her husband" to "a woman," it is of utmost importance to make sure that these words are pronounced properly.
