Important Message Regarding This Lesson

The Daily Mitzvah schedule runs parallel to the daily study of 3 chapters of Maimonides' 14-volume code. There are instances when the Mitzvah is repeated a few days consecutively while the exploration of the same Mitzvah continues in the in-depth track.

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
In the days of the Alter Rebbe [Chabad founder Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadoi, 1745-1812] Chassidim had a familiar saying: "The piece of bread that I have is yours just as it is mine." And they would say the word "yours" first--"...yours just as it is mine..."
  –Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch (quoted in Hayom Yom, Iyar 15)
