Kislev 28, 5766 * December 29, 2005

D A I L Y M I T Z V A H (M A I M O N I D E S )

Today's Mitzvot (Day 118 of 339):

Positive Mitzvah 145; Negative Mitzvah 110

Positive Mitzvah 145: Objects Vowed to be set aside for the Priests
and the Sanctuary - "Cherem"

-Leviticus 27:28 "Notwithstanding, a Cherem that a man shall vow to
set aside for the L-rd..."

This Positive Mitzvah tells us that if a person declares an object
or animal as Cherem, this means that he is vowing to set this object
or animal aside for holy use.

That object must then be presented to the priest.

If the person says, "This object is Cherem to G-d" then the object
must be given for use in the Beit HaMikdash.


Negative Mitzvah 110: We are forbidden to sell any objects or
property which are designated as "Cherem"

-Leviticus 27:28 "No taboo thing...shall be sold"

Any possession that a person declares to be "Cherem," is "taboo"
and cannot be used by him anymore.

The objects or possessions considered "Cherem" are given to the
priests and become theirs to use as they see fit (see Positive
Mitzvah 145).

Once a person has declared his land or belongings as "Cherem,"
they fall into a special category.

This Negative Mitzvah forbids that person from selling them, even
if he wishes to sell it to the treasury of the Beit HaMikdash.
