98 - DEFILEMENT OF FOOD AND DRINK


Leviticus 11:34 -- “In such a vessel, any edible food upon which water falls becomes unclean, and any drink that may be drunk from it becomes unclean.”

Concerning all the commandments bearing upon cleanness and uncleanness Maimonides says: “We are not impeded through these laws in our ordinary occupation by the distinction the Law makes between that which is unclean and that which is clean. For this distinction applies only in reference to the Sanctuary and the holy objects connected with it: it does not apply to other cases. “She shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary.” (Leviticus 12:4). Other persons (that do not intend to enter the Sanctuary or touch any holy thing) are not guilty of any sin if they remain unclean as long as they like, and eat, according to their pleasure, ordinary food that has been in contact with unclean things.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 47
