Torah Portion: Mishpatim
You shall not cook a kid in the milk of its mother (Shemos 23:19).
It is a negative commandment that we not cook the meat of a domestic animal in milk, as it is written, You shall not cook a kid in the milk of its mother (Shemos 23:19). The Sages explain that the prohibition does not apply to only a kid goat, but rather to the meat of any domestic animal. They derived this from the fact that Scripture in several places uses the word g’di (kid) but elaborated and used the fuller term g’di ’izim (kid goat). This shows that wherever Scripture uses just the word g’di without elaboration it is not referring to specifically to a kid goat but to any meat of a domestic animal.
This Mitzvah applies in all places and at all times, to both men and women. One who transgresses this and cooked meat and milk together, even if he did not eat it, receives lashes.
