Group the 613 mitzvoth to discover more about the law

The Commandments of the Law Interactive provides information on the 613 mitzvoth (commandments) as delineated by Maimonides (Rambam) in the Middle Ages, around 1170 C.E. While the Rabbis freely referred to the 613 mitzvoth and agreed on their number, they rarely provided a completed list and therefore understood the commandments differently. These commandments are explicit commandments found within the Torah as understood by the Rabbis. Maimonides distilled the principles for identifying the 613 mitzvoth and also provided a reliable list. His list contains 248 positive commandments and 365 negative ones.

The Commandments of the Law interactive allows you to group the 613 mitzvoth (commandments) into various categories (State, People, Category, etc.) and track down a specific type of law.

Example: Find all the food prohibitions in the Torah then sort them by topic like goats, birds, or yeast.
