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.

Remarrying a Divorced Wife Who Remarried in the Interim

"Her first husband who sent her away may not marry her again"Deuteronomy 24:4.

It is forbidden for a man to remarry a woman he divorced if she has remarried [and subsequently been divorced again or widowed] in the interim.

Levirate Marriage

"Her husband's brother shall be intimate with her"Deuteronomy 25:5.

The brother of a married man who dies childless is commanded to marry his widowed sister-in-law. [See Positive Commandment 217 for the mechanism by which this mitzvah can be bypassed.]
