Positive Mitzvah 107

  Day 194Day 196  

Introduction to Mitzvot 96 -113


We must view "Impurity" with the same acceptance as mentioned regarding purity (see Positive Mitzvah 74).

HaShem defined certain situations as impure.

Persons or items coming in contact with impurity may also be considered impure and they must go through a process of purification.

In Positive Mitzvot 96 - 113, the Torah commands us to regard certain things and situations as being impure.

There are many detailed laws applying to each stage of impurity.

The Torah teaches us the procedures of purification for the different types of impurity.

Positive Mitzvah 107: Impurity of coming in contact with a Dead Body
Numbers 19:11 "He that touches the dead body of any man shall be unclean"

Contact with a dead body makes a person impure.

G-dliness is everything is the path of Abraham. Abraham understood that there is a Reality beyond all realities, before which no existence is true. Therefore he smashed the idols and declared to all people and in all places that there is only One. Everything is G-dliness is the path of Isaac. Isaac saw that the world is in truth G-dly. Therefore, Isaac dug wells, in the earth and in the people. He dug away the darkness and found the spark of G-dliness within each thing. Jacob struggled with the darkness.
