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 129 of 339):

Negative Mitzvot 135, 136

Negative Mitzvah 135: A Priest who is not circumcised is forbidden
to eat "Terumah"

-Leviticus 22:10 "A tenant of the priest or a hired servant may not
eat of the holy [food]"

Circumcision is the most important sign of a male's connection
to HaShem. Without circumcision, the male lacks that special

A non-circumcised priest may not eat "Terumah." He also is forbidden
to eat other sacrificial meat.


Negative Mitzvah 136: An impure Priest is forbidden to eat "Terumah"

-Leviticus 22:4 "Any man who is of the seed of Aaron...shall
not eat of the holy [food]s, until he is pure"

A priest who has become impure may not eat from Terumah.

He must first purify himself according to the Torah's instructions
and he is then allowed to eat his Terumah.
