DAILY MITZVAH (Maimonides): Tuesday, January 10, 2006


Tevet 10, 5766 * January 10, 2006

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 130 of 339):

Negative Mitzvah 137

Negative Mitzvah 137: A "Chalalah" may not eat from the portion of
the Priest

- Leviticus 22:12 And if a priest's daughter is married to a common
man, she shall not eat of that which is set apart
of the holy [foods]"

The Torah gives many laws specifically to the priests.

These laws instruct them how to conduct themselves, whom they may
marry, what they must wear, and how they offer sacrifices.

When a priest marries a woman forbidden to him by Torah Law, the
woman is considered a "Chalalah."

She is not allowed to eat from sacrificial meat that a priest is
usually entitled to.

This Negative Mitzvah also prohibits the daughter of a priest who
married a non-priest from eating Terumah as long as she is married
to this man or any of her children are alive.

Vayechi - Jacob's Unrequited Desire
By Moshe New

“Jacob called for his sons and said, ‘Gather and I will tell you what will happen to you at the end of days”. Rashi explains: He attempted to reveal when Moshiach would come, but the Shechinah withdrew from him. So he began to say other things.
