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.

Positive Commandment 245 (Digest)
Transactions

"And if you sell something to your neighbor..."Leviticus 25:14.

We are commanded regarding the various methods that effect transactions, i.e., the ways to transfer property from one individual to another (or, in the case of a guardian of an object, the transfer of jurisdiction).


Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
Daily Quote
The teachings of Chabad Chassidism open the gates to the chambers of wisdom and understanding, enabling one to know and to recognize--with intellectual comprehension--"He who spoke and the world came into being." This awakens the feelings of the heart so that it is aroused with the emotion engendered by that particular intellectual comprehension. And Chassidism shows the way that each individual -- commensurate with his innate abilities -- can "approach the Sacred," to serve G-d with his mind and heart.
  –Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch
