182 - EATING A LIMB OF A LIVING CREATURE


Deuteronomy 12:23 -- “Only be sure that you do not eat the blood, for the blood is the life; you may not eat the life with the meat.”
Exodus 22:31 -- “And you shall be holy men to Me: you shall not eat meat torn by beasts in the field; you shall throw it to the dogs.”

By this prohibition it is forbidden to eat a limb of a living creature: that is, to cut off a whole limb from a live animal or fowl and eat as much as an olive’s size of the limb in its natural condition (that is, together with its veins and sinews); and even though there is only the smallest amount of meat on it, whoever eats it is punished by whipping.

“It is forbidden to cut off a limb of a living animal and eat it, because such an action would produce and develop cruelty; besides, the heathen kings used to do it; it was also a kind of idolatrous worship to cut off a certain limb of a living animal and eat it.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 48
