37 - PRIESTS DEFILING THEMSELVES FOR DECEASED RELATIVES


Leviticus 21:2-3 -- 2 “Except for his relatives who are nearest to him: his mother, his father, his son, his daughter, and his brother; 3 also his virgin sister who is near to him, who has had no husband, for her he may defile himself.”
Leviticus 21:1 -- “And the LORD said to Moses, ‘Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say to them: “None shall defile himself for the dead among his people.”’”

The priests are to defile themselves and mourn only for the loss of the following relatives: mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister; a husband and wife are under this obligation by rabbinic ordinance only.*

* Mishneh Torah, Shoftim. Hilchoth Abel II, 1
