Why do we redeem our firstborn sons? Who is exempt from this mitzvah? What is the significance of using jewelry and garlic at a Pidyon Haben? Can a father choose not to redeem his son? How does an adult redeem himself? Will the firstborn once again serve in the Beis Hamikdash?
In Midarkei Hapidyon, you will find the answers to these questions and more:
Find out where Pidyon Haben is alluded to in the Torah and why Yitzchak Avinu didn't have a Pidyon Haben. Read about the value of the five shekalim needed to redeem a firstborn son and about the history of money and coinage. Learn the halachos of Pidyon Haben, including how one calculates the correct time and day for a pidyon and whether a Kohen sits or stands during the ceremony.
This sefer was written as a guide for fathers, Kohanim, and anyone interested in learning about this unique mitzvah. A beautiful photo section provides a visual presentation of Pidyon Haben, and the parshah section teaches about the significance of a bechor and his connection to the weekly parshah.
