  2. 2. In this week’s parsha,following the receivingof the TenCommandments,Hashem teaches theJews about mishpatim,laws about how oneJew must deal withanother Jew. They weretaught these laws whilecamping in the city ofMara, and were taughtadditional mishpatim atthe bottom of mountSinai after receiving theTorah.
  3. 3. One law discusses the slave who volunteers toremain in his master’s service. If after sixyears of service a slave wants to continueworking for his master, he is taken to the BeitDin, House of Judgment. If he reinforces hisrefusal to leave his master in front of thejudges, his master brings him to the door ofhis house, or someone elses house. Then hismaster bores a hole through his right ear, asign that he remains enslaved until the nextYovel year. (Every 50th year is a Yovel year.)Then he is free.
  4. 4. Another law discusses the punishmentfor murder by accident. If someone killedsomebody else by mistake, having noprevious intentions of causing him harm,he must go to an Ir Miklat. These arespecial cities of refuge, set aside forpeople with these circumstances. In thecity they will be safe and will not needto be worried about anyone comingafter them.
  5. 5. This law discusses the mitzvahfor the Beit Din to kill anyonepracticing witchcraft. The BeitDin is commanded to execute aperson who practices witchcraftin Israel. Although the Torahsays a warning in regard towomen who engage in sorcery,both men and women were tobe executed. The reason theTorah singled out the women isbecause witchcraft was morecommonly practiced by women.
  6. 6. One last law talks about the prohibition against mixing milk and meat together. Hashemcommanded Klal Israel, “You should not cook a kid in its mother’s milk.” These words arefound in three different places in the Torah, indicating three different prohibitions to thematter:1.It is forbidden to eat a cooked mixture of meat and milk.2.One may not gain any benefit from such a mixture.3.The two may not be cooked together.
