Mitzvah #130 - Not to eat certain animal fats

Certain animal fats - like the fat around the intestines and kidneys - are sacrificed on the altar.

These fats are forbidden to be eaten from those types of animals which are sacrificed; cattle, sheep and goats.

All the fats from non-domestic Kosher animals - like deer - may be eaten.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere

Verse: "Do not eat the Cheilev-fat of the ox, sheep or goat" (Vayikra 7:23)
