Mitzvos Hashem does

there's a concept that Hashem doesnt request something of His creations that He doesnt do. for example, Moshe was shown the knot of Hashem's tefilin, bc Hashem does all the mitzvos. this is a very deep inyun, which i dont really understand. i wonder if anyone does. could they clear it up for me?

plus, if Hashem does keep the mitzvos, does He do the ones that are nogia to the men, or also to the women? there are certain mitzvos that only women do and certain ones that only men do....

How many Mitzvos are there only for woman? Nidah Chala Ner? Of course all the Mitzvas includes also them. In General there is HKBH and SHchina (More Kabbalastic: Z"A (zeir anpin (=small face- male) Nukve.) So you have the realm of female above.

In a Sicha the Rebbe once said this amazing idea. How does Hashem observe the Mitzva of Mesiros Nefesh? Self imolation of G-D?

Answer: With a Sota the law is that a name of G-D shall be erased in order to make peace between a man and his wife. This is how hashem is observing the Mitzvah of self sacrafice he allowes his holy name (which is forbidden t be erased) to be oblitrated effaced.

to clarify: chala and ner are equally obligatory for men (men in bakeries take chala, a widowed man for ex. would light candles), and nida is about tahara. IF a woman wants to be tahor, these are the halachos (as R' B. Bell says on his Sefer Ha'Mitzva tapes: one is not obligated to be tahor).

Tahara

"(as R' B. Bell says on his Sefer Ha'Mitzva tapes: one is not obligated to be tahor)."

What about the Chyuv to be Tahor on Yom Tov?

The woman is obligated to be Tahor for the Husband.

I didnt hear R' Bells tapes. I assume he spoke about positive mitzvah 109 where the RMBM says that tvilah is different than Maakeh or Tzizis, since you never need tvilah if you want to remain tamei. But nonetheless even if you (acept RMBMs view, and you) are not mandated to toivel, once you toivel its a kium of a Mitzvah as you make a specific Baracha Asher Kidshoni Bemitzvoisov.... So Its a Mitzvah only woman can observe. Veposhet.

These are not Torah obligations, and an integeral part of the Mitzvah. (i.e. The tumah of nidah by itself, doesnt demand any tevilah, its an extarnal obligation inherent in marriage, which obligates she shall purify, not the laws of nidah)

Nidah is one of a number of mitzvos under the category of tahara but it's a mitzva only women can do
