Positive Commandment 100 (Digest)
Postpartum Ritual Impurity

We are commanded regarding the ritual impurity that follows childbirth. [I.e., when contracted, one must follow all the laws associated with this impurity.]

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
There are two sorts of laws: a) laws that create life, and b) laws created by life. Human laws are created by life, so they vary from land to land according to circumstances. The Almighty's Torah is a G-dly law that creates life. G-d's Torah is the Torah of truth, the same in all places, at all times. Torah is eternal.
  –Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch
