261 - SELLING A HEBREW BONDMAID


Exodus 21:8 -- “If she does not please her master, who has betrothed her to himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has dealt deceitfully with her.”

A Hebrew bondmaid may not be sold to anybody whatever, Israelite or heathen; and if she regains her freedom, the prohibition applies to her father as it formerly did to her owner.*

* Mishneh Torah, Kinyan, Hilchoth Abadim IV, 10, Commentaries
