Eating and Otherwise Partaking of the Produce of Our Work

We may eat of the crops with which we work, but not take any of it away, nor take to excess.

This mitzvah is a form of charity known in the Jewish world as tz'dakah. It speaks to the worker directly, but implies a clear duty on the part of the owner of crops to allow his workers to eat of them while they are at work.

Does it have a wider application as well? Why not read the Scriptures and the commentary and see what you think ...

Mitzvah N8
