The twittersphere had an interesting back and forth yesterday about the required length of time one must wait between eating milk after meat.
Hadassah Sabo even set up a poll of what people did over at her blog.
As such, I thought it would be fitting to take a second look at some of the sources behind the discussion and try to clarify thing.
Before venturing into the thick of things, it's important to make a few things clear.
This post is hardly a proper treatise on the subject - not only is it most likely missing some of the major opinions in the mater, it's likely that I could have erred in my understanding of the topic it . . . be it through ignorance or lack of understanding. As such, besides the general rule that one should base their halachic decisions, after that of their Rabbi, one should not draw any halachic opinion from this post.
That being said . . .
The Torah commands us at three junctures (Exodus 34:26 Exodus 23:19 Deuteronomy 14:21)
