Positive Commandment 243 (Digest)
The Paid Guardian and the Renter

"If a man gives his fellow a donkey, a bull, or a lamb..."Exodus 22:9.

We are commanded to follow the rules outlined in the Torah regarding a paid watchman and a renter. Similar rules regulate the both of them [in the event that the item being watched or rented is lost or damaged].


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.
