Positive Commandment 106 (Digest)
Ritual Impurity of a Zavah

We are commanded regarding the ritual impurity of a zavah [a woman who experiences menses three consecutive days outside the normal menstrual period.

When contracted, one must follow all the laws associated with this impurity. E.g.,] how she contracts this ritual impurity and how, after she becomes a zavah, she can pass on this impurity to others.

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.

[A very high] level of charity is to give to the poor without knowing to whom one gives, and without the recipient knowing from whom he received. For this is performing a mitzvah solely for the sake of Heaven
