The Woman Impurity

Every girl ,since  her first menstruation, must follow the menstrual period laws which  every woman must follow, married and singles as well.

”And if woman have an issue,and her issue in her flesh be blood,she shall be put apart seven days:and whosoever touch her shall be unclean until the even” (Leviticus 15,19).

From this reason every woman ,which had a blood issue is impure  seven days.
The Samaritans women are separated  from the rest of house in their menstrual period , they have their own room or their own seat in the house. They use only tools which dedicated , only for them in their menstrual period. Every other tool which the woman touch  shall  be purify in water, like the Torah said:

“And the vessel of earth that he touch which hate the issue,shall be broken:and every vessel of wood shall be
rinsed in water.”(Leviticus  15,12).

The woman in her menstrual period, does not  do  anything to her household, and doesn’t touch  the rest of the people in the home and doesn’t touch anyone else, except her  babies who still sucklings , the baby shall be purify by water like the woman.

  The Samaritan women  also fulfill the Birth  menstrual period (after the birth) as written:

“If a woman have have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days` according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean. And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three  and thirty days` she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of  her purifying be fulfilled. But if she  bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.”(Leviticus 12,2).

At the end of the menstrual period the women dip   in  the bath, which his law is the same as a water pit, as written :

“ Nevertheless a fountain or pit, where in there is plenty of water, shall be clean “ (Leviticus 11,36)

At the days of the tabernacle , the woman used to fulfill the sacrifice commandment, at the day of the catharsis.

“And if any man’s seed of copulation go out from him,then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even”(Leviticus 15,16).

The Samaritans also fulfill the laws of mans purity. Every man who seed of copulation went out from him, become unclean , shall wash all his flesh with water, and considered as unclean till the evening of that day. If it happen after the evening he considered as unclean till the next evening. If he is from the priesthood family he can “serve in the holy”.
