Be Nice to Animals

Divine Code for October 16, 2022

Today: Page 234

Topic Part IV -- vision for humanity

Upcoming blogs will cover the Prohibition of Meat from a Living Animal which consists of five prohibitions and their offshoots.

The Hebrew name of the prohibition of Meat from a living Animal is: Eiver Min ha'Hai (Limb from a living animal).

Although, after the flood, G-d gave Noah and his descendants permission to eat meat, there are rules attached to this.

G-d is concerned with the welfare of all His creatures, including animals. He not only gives rules on how we may kill and eat them, but He also gives rules on how we should treat animals in general. We must not hurt them or cause them unnecessary suffering. This comes under the rule Tza'ar ba'alei hayim.

All these rules are important for animal welfare, but also teach us how to treat humans. If G-d cares so much that we don't hurt or cause suffering to animals, how much more so does this apply to humans, humans created in His Image.
