The Mitzvot of Pesach - Roasting the Korban Pesach, Part II


The Rambam and Raavad disagreed (Hilchot Korban Pesach 10:11) as to how the roasting of the korban pesach was performed. The Rambam wrote that they roasted the entire animal, including the prohibited gid hanasheh. The Raavad dissented sharply, saying, "Should I merit to eat the korban pesach, and he would bring this before me, I would smash it down on the ground before him!"

This unresolved disagreement is one of the arguments against bringing the korban pesach in our own day.

Have a great day,
