33 - PRACTICING THE ART OF THE SOOTHSAYER


Deuteronomy 18:10 -- “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer”
Leviticus 19:26 -- “You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor shall you practice divination or soothsaying.”

“To say: ‘This dwelling I built has turned out lucky for me; this woman I married was a blessing to me; from the moment that I bought this beast, I became rich;’ or to ask a child, ‘What verse art thou learning?’, and, if the child recites a verse from the Blessings, to rejoice and say: ‘That is a lucky sign.’ – all these and similar things are permitted. As the person concerned does not regulate his conduct by them, or refrain from any action because of them, but merely regards them as signs relating to what has already happened, their acceptance is permitted.”*

* Mishneh Torah, Mada, Hilchoth Abodath Kochabim XI, 5
