Show Notes

In this episode, we learn positive mitzvah #39, which is to fulfill your vows or oaths.

  • This mitzvah is to keep your promises. 
  • We have the ability to create other mitzvot, simply by promising to do something.
  • This applies to both vows ("nedarim") and oaths ("shevuot"):
    • Vows are typically on an item or object
    • Oaths are typically related to an action that the person will do
    • This distinction is explained more in the podcast
