Bava Basra 64

BAVA BASRA 61-67 - This week's study material has been dedicated by Mrs. Rita Grunberger of Queens, N.Y., in loving memory of her husband, Reb Yitzchok Yakov ben Eliyahu Grunberger. Irving Grunberger helped many people quietly in an unassuming manner and is dearly missed by all who knew him. His Yahrzeit is 10 Sivan.

1) [line 19] RAVA TOSFA'AH - Rava, the Reciter of Tosefta'os; alt. Rava, the one who fully pronounces the words of the verses (see Rashi to Avodah Zarah 9a, in the middle and at the end of the page)

2a) [line 21] HA'BOR B'CHAFIRAH - the Bor is a pit that is dug into the ground
b) [line 21] HA'DUS B'VINYAN - the Dus is a pit in the ground that is lined with stones that rise above the surface of the ground. A Dus also has a cover on top. (BI'UR HALACHAH Orach Chayim 587:1 in his explanation of the opinions of Rashi and Rambam)


Rebbi Akiva and the Chachamam argue about what the nature of a seller is when he sells property without specifying the if he is keeping anything for himself. "Mocher, b'Ayin Yafah Mocher" means that a seller sells with good will and does not keep any part of what he sells for himself, e.g. when a person sells a field and does not sell the well in it, the seller must purchase a path through the field from the buyer in order to be able to get to his well, since he sold the field with "good will," not leaving a path for himself. If the seller sells "b'Ayin Ra'ah," it means that he keeps a certain part of what he is selling for himself.

4) [line 10] GAS - a winepress (which is dug into the ground)
5) [line 10] SHOVACH - a dovecote
6a) [line 10] CHAREVIN - desolate, uninhabited
b) [line 10] YISHUVIN - inhabited
7) [line 15] KASHI LEI DAVSHA - the trampling [of people walking through it] is bad for it (the field)
