"And if a man shall open a pit..."Exodus 21:33.

We are commanded regarding the laws [of liability] that apply if a person digs a pit [and another's animal falls into it and is injured].

Daily Quote
As the six-day workweek culminates in Shabbat, so, too, will the six millennia of our work and toil to make the world a home for G-d culminate in the Messianic Era -- "the day that is wholly Shabbat and tranquility, for life everlasting"
  –Nachmanides (commentary on Genesis 1)
