The Crown of Halacha

Exodus: Parshah Mishpatim | Rabbi Eytan Dzikowski

Did you know…?

Ch.22, vs. 30

Why were specifically the dogs, privy to be given the meat?

וְאַנְשֵׁי־קֹ֖דֶשׁ תִּהְי֣וּן לִ֑י וּבָשָׂ֨ר בַּשָּׂדֶ֤ה טְרֵפָה֙ לֹ֣א תֹאכֵ֔לוּ לַכֶּ֖לֶב תַּשְׁלִכ֥וּן אֹתֽוֹ׃


You shall be holy people to Me: you must not eat flesh torn by beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs.

The flesh of an animal torn in the field is to be given to the dogs.

While it could be disposed in other ways as well, the Torah specifically mentions the dogs, in appreciation for them not howling, when the Jews left Egypt.
