If a jew has a kid with a non-jew, does he get rewarded for the mitzvah of p’ru u’rvu?
Especially if it is the woman who is the gentile, thus resulting in a birth of a child who is not Jewish.
What do you say “especially”? Women don’t have a mitzvah of p’ru ur’vu to begin with.
It’s a מצוה הבאה בעבירה, mitzva through an averoh for him.
Especially was the wrong word. But you point it out well. It is the man with the mitzvah. And if the woman is a gentile then the baby is a gentile. So aside from the terrible aveiros of living with her, any births aren’t fruitful and multiplying the Jewish people.
The commandment doesn’t specify Jewish people. All men are commanded to.
Jews are tht default, unless otherwise specified. Pru Urvu only applies to Jews.
Kol mitzvah shene’emar v’lo nishneis, l’yisroel ne’emra. ex. Gid hanasheh. Pru Urvu is to klal Yisroel. There is another possuk in Mishlei, “lo sohu bra’ah, lasheves yetzarah” which may apply to women, avadim and goyim. These are extended sugyos in Gittin (ch 4), Yevamos ch 4), and Bava Basra 13a, among other places.
I would say, Hilchesa k’Joseph, v’lav mitaamei.
Midwest is correct.
