Torah Portion: Kedoshim
“והנותר עד יום השלישי פיגול הוא… ואוכליו עוונו ישא” (ויקרא יט ו-ח)
It is a negative commandment to not eat Nosar, which is what remained of consecrated meat (from an offering that was processed properly) after the allotted time it was to have been eaten. It is thus written: Whatever remains until the third day… it is rejected…. Each of those who eat it will bear his iniquity, for what is sacred to Hashem has he desecrated (Vayikra 19:6-8).
This prohibition applies when the Holy Temple stands, to both men and women. One who transgressed this and willfully ate a kazayis (the volume of an olive) of nosar is liable to excision; if it was eaten inadvertently he must bring a standard burnt-offering.
