Rambam - Sefer HaMitzvos
As Divided for The Daily Learning Schedule

Positive Mitzvah 248

  Day 310Day 312  

This is not an error of duplication. The full-fledged version of this Mitzvah are many and change for those who are learning the one/three chapter a day. The Message for the day from "Bringing Heaven Down to Earth" at the end of this Mitzvah is different than that of yesterday.
Positive Mitzvah 248: Laws of Inheritance
Numbers 27:8 "If a man dies and he has no son..."

HaShem blesses us with life and possessions.

When someone passes away, the property which HaShem has granted him is inherited by his children or next of kin.

This Positive Mitzvah concerns the many detailed laws of inheritance.

We should always remember that material possessions are not only things that are passed on to us by our parents.

The greatest inheritance we receive is our Jewish soul and connection to our Torah heritage. Thus, we add one more link in the everlasting chain of the Jewish People and in our devotion to the greatest gift of HaShem - the Torah.


Any reason we may suppose for G-d's will could not be the ultimate reason. The finite mind cannot begin to fathom an infinite wisdom -- never mind that which brought forth wisdom from the Void. The ultimate knowledge is that we do not know.
