Question Thank you for these lectures. Looking forward to reading the Sefer Hamitzvot daily and your lectures greatly help. Just wondering since there is a commandment of "Thou shalt not kill", then why did the Sanhedrin (or whatever courts?) enact corporal punishment? Reply

Rabbi Mendel Kaplan studies the daily lesson in Maimonides' Sefer HaMitzvos according to the daily study cycle completing all 613 commandments in the course of just under a year.
