Positive Commandment 99 (Digest)
Ritual Impurity of a Menstruating Woman

We are commanded regarding the ritual impurity associated with menstruation. [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

  –Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi (quoted in Hayom Yom for 17 Adar I)
