The Sharia of Moses in the TORA
Part 1 - The 248 Positive Commandments of the Tora
96 - DEFILEMENT THROUGH CARCASSES OF ANIMALS
Leviticus 11:8 -- “Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch. They are unclean to you.”
Leviticus 11:24 -- “By these you shall become unclean; whoever touches the carcass of any of them shall be unclean until evening.”
The essence of this commandment is that one becomes unclean by touching a given object, or in certain circumstances by being near it, as by entering a house in which there is a dead body.
