Redemption Fee for Child
Traced to Bible, History

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1982, JTA, Inc.)

A Jewish father is re-
quired to redeem his first
born son, the first born of
the child's mother, by giv-
ing the redemption fee to a
Kohen (of the priestly fam-
ily of Aaron).
Basically, this is an out-
right commandment men-
tioned in the Bible (Num-
bers, Chap. 8). A variety of
reasons are offered to ex-
plain this requirement.
First, this stems from the
general requirement to
understand that everything
we achieve comes from the
Almighty. That is why it is
required to offer the first
fruits of the harvest, the
first born of certain ani-

mals, etc. to the Almighty.
Thus the first born son
of the family must be rec-
ognized as belonging .to
the Almighty. However,
when it comes to humans
the tradition did not want
us to actually relinquish
our children and so a
method of redemption
was set up so it would be
possible to redeem the
first born males.
Second, originally all first
born males were assigned to
duties in the holy temple.
They were the priests. La-
ter, the priestly family of
Aaron was substituted for
the first born in the holy
temple. This still did not ex-
Third, an historic ele-
ment is introduced. At the
end of the enslavement
period in ancient Egypt,
every first born of the Egyp-
tians was fatally smitten
while the first born of the
Hebrews were spared. The
redemption ceremony of the
first born males today re-
minds us of this saving
grace and asks us to redeem
our first born males as a
token of our appreciation to
the Almighty for having
spared the first born at that
time.
