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.]

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
Daily Quote

A person should really know the pathways of Heaven, but actually this is not crucial. One needs only the main thing - to help another wholeheartedly, with sensitivity, to take pleasure in doing a kindness to another.

  –Rabbi Shmuel of Lubavitch (1834-1882)
