Can we Drink Wine Made from a Tree used for the Service of an Idol?

Divine Code for September 11, 2022

Today: Pages 171-172

From topic 8:8 -- 8:12

If idolaters harvest the fruit of a tree to make wine or beer that is used (or planned to be used) for the service of an idol (for example, for libations), or for drinking in the festive celebrations for an idol, then the entire tree is forbidden for benefit, and this is also called a type of asherah. The idolaters made the ritual wine or beer from its fruit, and this is a traditional procedure that is followed with an asherah.

A tree that was planted in order to stand up an idol beneath it is forbidden for benefit all the time that the idol is under it, but if it is removed, the tree is permitted; this is because the tree itself is not being worshiped.
