לא עברתי ממתותיך ולא שכחחתי (חי תבא כו: יג)I have not transgressed any of Your commandments, and I have not forgotten.
The Midrash says: “Whoever doesn’t give Maaser (a pittance from his earnings), mice will eat his wheat. The Gemara says (הוריות יג) that if one eats food that mice ate, he will forget his learning. The pasuk says, לא עברתי ממתותיך – I gave Maaser, so mice didn’t eat from my wheat, and therefore, ולא שכחחתי – I didn’t forget what I learned.Go back to Parshas Ki Savo
