Bechoros 20

BECHOROS 19-20 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi publications for these Dafim for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.

*********************GIRSA SECTION*********************
We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, the Tzon
Kodshim and the parenthetical marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section
is devoted to any *OTHER* changes that we feel ought to be made in the
Gemara and Rashi)

[1] Gemara [line 12]:
The words "Chaya ki'Devarecha"
should be "Haya ki'Devarecha" (Warsaw and other editions of the Shas)

1) [line 4] RUBA D'TALI B'MA'ASEH - a majority that depends on a voluntary action; e.g. giving birth, which depends on breeding with another animal

2) [line 36] MAI IKA BEIN GEMAREI LI'SEVAREI - what is the difference between the teaching that he received through tradition and the teaching that he said from his own reasoning

3) [line 37] EIN TINUF PACHOS MI'SHELOSHIM YOM - an animal cannot become pregnant during the first 30 days after her discharge

4) [last line] B'YOLEDES LI'MEKUTA'IN KAMIFLEGI - they argue whether an animal can give birth before the end of the last month of its term of birth


5) [line 3] MIKTZAS HA'YOM K'CHULO - after a *part* of the last day of her term has passed, her term is completed and she can give birth The rule of Miktzas ha'Yom k'Chulo states that part of the last day of a finite term (e.g. the thirty days of Nezirus or the seven days of mourning), is considered as though it were the entire day. For example, keeping Nezirus at the beginning of the thirtieth day is considered as if it was kept for the entire day.

6) [line 9] CHALAV POTER IKA BEINAIHU - they argue whether the production of milk is proof that an animal has given birth, and its owner is consequently exempt from Bechorah

7) [line 11] CHOLVOS - that secrete milk
8) [line 15] YATZ'AH MELEI'AH - she left when she was pregnant
