May I Use New Shoots From a Felled Ashera Tree?

Updated: Sep 13, 2022

Divine Code for September 10, 2022

Today: Page 167

Topic 8:6 -- 8:7

If my non-Jewish neighbour plants a tree and I go to worship it, he may benefit from the tree.

If I make changes to the tree, he is not allowed to profit from it.

If the neighbour plants a tree for worship (that is called an Ashera tree) or after a while decides to worship it, a pious Noahide cannot use the branches or fruits of that tree.

If the tree is cut down and the trunk remains, it may be used, because a person may profit from natural objects that are not physically adapted by man for idolatry.
