dead pigs


   
                       RIDDLE

Dying pigs, in need of trumpets.
?

Hint:
  פרשת השבוע -הלכה מפורשת בשו"ע 

PARSHA HASHAVUA
DEAD PIGS.        

וכי תבואו מלחמה -- והרעתם בחצצרת (במדבר י: ט)

מצות עשה מן התורה לזעוק ולהריע בחצוצרות על כל צרה (רמבם הל' תעניות א:א

ואם היה דבר בחזירים מתענין מפני שמעיהם דומים לשל בני אדם (שו"ע או"ח
תקעה :ג

The Rambam & Shulchan Aruch write there is a Mitzvah to blow trumpets for every צרה not only מלחמה.

The Shulchan Aruch lists all the צרות where fasting and blowing trumpets are required. One of them is when there is an animal plague and the pigs die. The reason for it is because human stomachs are very similar to pig stomachs.

The (מגן אברהם (ס' תקעו asks, why we don't use trumpets today which is more important than fasting.

Trumpets is דאורייתא, fasting is only דרבנן- see Rambam

The Pri Megadim, Ya'avetz, Chida, Shu"t Mishna Halachos & Shu"t Lehoros Noson all try to come up with a reason why we don't do it today.
