Reading Assignment - Class #3

Read mitzvah #4.
The dinei hamitzvah section of mitzvah #4 is a little confusing.  The author is working on giving us more information, and it is not so easy to follow.  Try to read carefully and see if you can figure it out.
In mitzvah #4, our author refers to an argument between Ramban and Rambam about exactly what this mitzvah covers.  This raises a topic that needs a bit of explanation, the notion that there are 613 identifiable mitzvot. We will take some time to discuss that notion in this class.
Then we will go on to our brief history of the literature of halachah.
