Sivan 29, 5771 · July 1, 2011
Today's Mitzvah
A daily digest of Maimonides’ classic work "Sefer Hamitzvot"

Negative Commandment 353
Provocative Behavior
"No man shall come near to any of his relatives, to uncover [their] nakedness"—Leviticus 18:6.
It is forbidden to derive pleasure from any of the women whom the Torah forbids us from marrying, by kissing, embracing and the like. For such behavior leads to actualizing the forbidden relationship.
