Positive Mitzvah 245
This is not an error of duplication. The full-fledged version of this Mitzvah are many and change for those who are learning the one/three chapter a day. The Message for the day from "Bringing Heaven Down to Earth" at the end of this Mitzvah is different than that of yesterday.Positive Mitzvah 245: Conducting Business
Leviticus 25:14 "And if you sell something to your neighbor, or buy something from your neighbor"
The Torah deals with every aspect of our lives; not only with the way we pray and study, but also the manner in which we carry out our business.
This Positive Mitzvah establishes guidelines for our business dealings and governs the way we buy, sell, and transfer ownership of property.
These guidelines include writing business contracts, paying for goods with money, or exchanging one item for another.
At the time of the disarmament talks in the U.N. (January 1992): When the Prophet Isaiah said, "They shall beat their swords into ploughshares," he was referring to the end of the Cold War and the beginning of nuclear disarmament. The prophecy has only begun to be realized.
The Cold War did not end due to Man's power of reason. War never made sense -- yet the same rational Man has fought them for millennium. All that is new is that the light of Moshiach has begun to shine in our world.
