Positive Commandment 90 (Digest)
Burning Sacrifices that Contracted Ritual Impurity

"The flesh that touches any impurity shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire"Leviticus 7:19.

We are commanded to burn any sacrifice that has become ritually impure.

This mitzvah also includes the obligation to burn Terumah oil that has become ritually impure.

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.
