332 - HAVING INTERCOURSE WITH ONE'S SISTER


Leviticus 18:9 -- “The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you shall not uncover.”

A man may marry his sister’s or his brother’s daughter. Indeed, the Sages commend such unions, basing their opinion on the words of the prophet, And not hide yourself from your own flesh (Isaiah 58:7).*

* Mishneh Torah, Kedushah, Hilchoth Isurei Biah II, 14
