The prohibition of negiah is derived from two verses in Leviticus : "Any man shall not approach (לקרב lekarev ) his close relative to uncover nakedness; I am God" (18:6), and: "You shall not approach a woman in her time of unclean separation, to uncover her nakedness" (18:19). [7] Although the verses speak in the masculine gender, women are equally bound by these commandments, just as they are obligated in virtually all negative commandments. [8] [ improper synthesis? ]

Now I see two contradictory statements about this. The introduction says close relatives are exempt from the prohibition. The next section gives forbidden approach of relatives as first source for the prohibition. -- ( talk ) 23:08, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
