Defiling the hands is a status of ritual purity (or impurity) that is completely rabbinic in nature and was enacted by the Talmudic Sages not to promote ritual purity, but to protect holy works from destruction or desecration.(8) Essentially, the Sages of the Talmud observed people would store terumah (a "sacred" food) in the ark with holy scrolls saying "both are holy." In order to prevent this conduct, which apparently led to rats, mice, and weasels eating the scrolls as well as the sacred food, the Sages enacted a series of rabbinic decrees designed to deter this conduct.(9) The initial decree was that the torah scrolls defiled one's hands; thus, a person could not directly touch sacred scrolls and then sacred food.
