Updated: Sep 13, 2022

Divine Code for September 6, 2022

Today: Page 160

Topic 7:8 -- 7:11

One may not benefit from vessels of gold or silver or silk clothing, or jewelry with figures of a dragon, moon, sun, planet or constellation.

One of Vessels consisting of other material and which are nullified - for example, because they have been sold or given away, or have damage, benefit, even from a necklace with a cross as long as it does not contain an image and was used only as a symbol and not as a symbol of worship.

The general rule is that for any image or statue, or vessel or other accessory item, there is a strong doubt if it was used for idol worship it is permitted to benefit from.
