Important Message Regarding This Lesson

The Daily Mitzvah schedule runs parallel to the daily study of 3 chapters of Maimonides' 14-volume code. There are instances when the Mitzvah is repeated a few days consecutively while the exploration of the same Mitzvah continues in the in-depth track.

Grace after Meals

"And you will eat and be sated then you will bless G‑d"Deuteronomy 8:10.

We are commanded to express gratitude to G‑d after every meal.

Circumcision

"Every male child among you shall be circumcised"Genesis 17:10.

We are commanded to circumcise all our male children. This obligation rests upon the child's father, not his mother.
