Positive Commandment 245 (Digest)
Transactions

"And if you sell something to your neighbor..."Leviticus 25:14.

We are commanded regarding the various methods that effect transactions, i.e., the ways to transfer property from one individual to another (or, in the case of a guardian of an object, the transfer of jurisdiction).

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
The Brit Milah (covenant of circumcision) impresses the quality of self-sacrifice in the Jew. Because he has already sacrificed a part of himself at a most early age, the Jew is prepared to give his very life to G-d.
