Jacob begins with the instruction on when to bury people, the sages have to make some decisions because of cultural rules designed to prevent the undead from being buried. What do you do with found items? Dt 22:6 is the famous requirement regarding mother birds and their young. Interesting discussion about commandments; why did God give them to us anyway? Even King Solomon admits in Ecclesiastes he doesn't know the reason for some commandments and he is a smart guy! After digging in Isaiah and Job some clarity on the issue. Extra credit for anyone who knows how bees tell time!
