(lit. "testimonial"); a mitzvah which commemorates something, such as eating matzah on Passover

Edot: "Testimonials." These are the mitzvot that commemorate or represent something, such as to eat matzah on Passover or to put on tefillin. Without the Torah we would not have thought of these; nevertheless, they are rational acts. A middle category between mishpatim and chukim.
