Mamzerim and the Mitzva of Having Children


Shalom, Rabbi!

Are male mamzerim still obligated to have children? Wouldn’t it be a bad thing to create more mamzerim?

Thank you.


You are bringing up a very valid point. The Achronim discuss this, see MInchas Chinuch mitzva 1-22. Also see Pri Megadim, O:CH 240-1.

Best wishes
