And the 98th prohibition is that we are forbidden from offering leaven or honey on the altar.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), "Do not burn any leaven or honey as a burnt-offering to G‑d." This prohibition is repeated in other words in the verse,2 "Do not make any meal offering that is sacrificed to G‑d out of leavened dough."

We explained in the Ninth Introductory Principle that one who offers leaven and honey receives one set of lashes, not two. This is because it is a lav she'b'klalus [inclusive prohibition], as we explained there; and we have also explained that one receives only one set of lashes for a lav she'b'klalus.3 An example of this is that one who offers honey is lashed once; one who offers leaven is lashed once; and so too one who offers leavened dough and honey together.
