Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Why the specific use of Hashem’s name?
דַּבֵּ֞ר אֶל־בְּנֵ֤י יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֲלֵהֶ֔ם אָדָ֗ם כִּֽי־יַקְרִ֥יב מִכֶּ֛ם קָרְבָּ֖ן ה' מִן־הַבְּהֵמָ֗ה מִן־הַבָּקָר֙ וּמִן־הַצֹּ֔אן תַּקְרִ֖יבוּ אֶת־קָרְבַּנְכֶֽם׃
Speak to the Israelite people, and say to them: When any of you presents an offering of cattle to the LORD, he shall choose his offering from the herd or from the flock.
The Torah only uses the four letter name of Hashem when discussing sacrifices. (YuKehVovKeh / י-ה-ו-ה).
This teaches us that Hashem’s attribute of “Mercy” is revealed when sacrifices are offered.
This is in contrast to the pagans, who believed that sacrifices represented “judgment.”
