The Covenant Between the Parts


At the covenant between the parts Hashem told Avraham (Abraham) to bring three heifers, three goats, three rams, a turtledove, and a young dove as a sacrifice. He cut the animals in half, but he did not cut the birds in half [Bereishis (Genesis) 15: 9-10]. How many total animal parts did he have?


9 animals cut in ½ = 18

2 birds = 2

Total 20 parts
