Positive Commandment 104 (Digest)
Ritual Impurity of a Zav

We are commanded regarding the ritual impurity of a zav [a man who suffers an abnormal seminal discharge.

When contracted, one must follow all the laws associated with this impurity. E.g.,] how he contracts this ritual impurity and how, after he becomes a zav, he 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.
Daily Quote
A chassidic saying makes the head clear and the heart clean;
a chassidic virtuous practice fills the home with light; a chassidic melody fortifies hope and trust, brings joy, and places the home and family in a state of "light"
  –Rabbi Sholom DovBer of Lubavitch (1860-1920)
