Mitzvah #213 – Replicating the Ketoret incense

Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on Facebook0Share on LinkedIn0Pin on Pinterest0
One may not produce incense using the recipe used to make the Ketoret used twice daily in the Beit HaMikdash (Temple).

It is forbidden to make ¼, ½ or ¾ or any other ratio of the recipe.

If it is made for its aroma, it’s forbidden even if it was not subsequently used. One is permitted to make Ketoret for study-purposes only.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: “..and the Ketoret incense… do not make for yourself” (Shmot 20:37, 38)
