Positive Mitzvah 


Give to the Kohen the first wool


 ‘The first of the shearings of your flock you shall give him” Devarim 18:4

His portion according to the Scribes is one sixtieth.

We are only obligated to do this with sheep where there is a minimum of five sheep and they have fleece on them of not less in weight of twelve Selaim, (silver coin weighing 17.1 grams  ) that totals a weight of sixty Selaim.


This applies as “Gifts” similar to the above positive mitzvah 51
