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.
