“So that you remember that you were a slave in Egypt,
and you preserve and observe these laws” (Dt.16:12).
Does this teach that
practices mandated for the Closure-festival
[regarding productive work]
apply to Passover and the Feast [of Huts as well]?
Or, might it even teach that
practices mandated for
Passover and the Feast
apply to the Closure-festival [of each]?
The Teaching states:
“These laws” (Dt.16:12)—
these teaches that
these [prohibitions of productive labor]
apply [only] to the Closure-festival.
But [the practice of dwelling in] the Festival-hut,
waving the Palm-frond,
the seven-days [ of Passover and the Feast],
and the unleavened-bread [of Passover]
do not apply to the Closure-festival.
