Positive Commandment 71 (Digest)
The Guilt Offering

The following individuals have to bring a Guilt Offering (Asham) for their transgressions:

  • One who inadvertently misappropriates holy property—whether sacrificial goods or property that belongs to the Temple coffers.
  • One who steals money from his fellow and falsely swears in denial of his crime.
  • One who has sexual relations with a betrothed, half-Jewish handmaiden.
  • One who falsely swears in denial of his responsibility to return an object that was entrusted to him for safekeeping.


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.
