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
"And you shall love the L-rd your G-d with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might (me'od)" (Deuteronomy 6:4). "With all your heart" -- with both your inclinations, with your good inclination and with your evil inclination. "With all your soul" -- even to the point that someone takes your life. "With all your meod" -- with all your money. Another interpretation: "With all your me'od" -- whatever measure (middah) He metes out (moded) to you, thank (modeh) Him exceedingly (me'od me'od).
