  1. Pesach Sheiyni:
  • The complaint: Certain individuals who were impure due to contact with a corpse came to Moshe complaining why they could not perform the Pesach sacrifice, and why they should miss out on this opportunity. Moshe brought their complaint to Hashem, to which Hashem replied with the following laws:
  • Its laws: Hashem spoke to Moshe saying: Any man who is impure or a distance away [from the area of slaughter, i.e. Jerusalem, on the 14th of Nissan] is to offer the Pesach sacrifice in the 2nd month on the 14th It is to be eaten with Matzah and Maror. It may not be leftover until morning, and its bones may not be broken.
  • Transgressed and did not offer: One who is pure, and is not a distance away and still does not bring the Pesach sacrifice, is to be cut off from its nation.
