From where is this interpretation derived?

I'll assume basic math. One mom, one dad, they need to have at least two kids to maintain or increase the overall number of humans by next generation.


Yeah I was just wondering if he had some greater, more interesting reason :P

I figured it was better to risk asking a question with a potentially simple, obvious answer than miss an opportunity to understand something.

would say you can after having two children.

Sorry if you answered already, if so I cant find it, from where is this teaching derived?


It was established by the Rabbis of old and today. They interpreted it. I think it's fair.

"Is it specifically condoms because of Onan? Does that mean the birth control pill is permissible so long as you do genuinely intend to have 2 children and or already have?"

I think bith control is permitted after the two, but it still has to be regulated, and some birth control methods are not allowed

I think he's asking where they interpreted that from.
