Beitzah 24

1) [line 1] MECHUSAR TZEIDAH - a term that describes an enclosure in which the animals inside it must still be trapped

2) [line 7] MIGDAL - (O.F. mestier) a cupboard
3) [line 11] BIVAR MEKORAH - a covered enclosure
*4*) [line 13] L'MIGDAL IYN, L'VAYIS LO - that is, both Rebbi Yehudah and the Rabanan agree that one is *not Chayav* for chasing a bird *into* a house. From this it is evident that the bird is not considered to be "trapped " when it is flying around in the house. It therefore follows that even if one catches a bird which is *already* in a house, he should be *Chayav* for trapping on Shabbos.

5) [line 15] TZIPOR DEROR - a type of wild bird that is evasive and not easily trapped
6) [line 15] EINAH MEKABELES MARUS - it does not accept mastership
7a) [line 21] D'RAHIT A'BASRAH - [all enclosures] in which a person runs after it (the animal)
b) [line 21] U'MATI LAH B'CAHAD SHICHIYA - and he catches it with one action of running and bending over

8) [line 23] D'IKA UKTZEI UKTZEI - it has corners, niches
9) [line 24] D'NAFLEI TULA D'KASLEI A'HADADEI - in which the shadow of one wall falls on the opposite wall

10) [line 29] GEMARA GEMOR, ZEMORTA TEHEI? - do you, Rav Yosef, tell us to only say over what we learn (whether it is correct or not); is it merely a song?!

11) [line 31] HAVEI METZUDAH U'NETZUDENU - bring a trap and we will trap it. (According to RASHI, RIF and ROSH, this is the same Shi'ur as the one described by Rav Ashi, u'Mati Lah b'Chad Shichiya, (above, entry #7b).
According to HAGAHOS ASHRI DH ha'Muchanin, if one still needs a trap to trap the animal in a Bivar the size of which Rav Ashi was describing, Rav Yosef prohibits it. See also TOSFOS DH Kol she'Omer, who also claim that the Shi'urim of Rav Ashi and Rav Yosef are different.)

12) [line 32] YONEI HARDISA'OS - (a) pigeons from a place with this name (see RASHASH); (b) Herodian pigeons; carrier pigeons

13) [line 33] KELUVAN - their nests or cages
14a) [line 34] YONEI SHOVACH - doves that nest in dove-cotes
b) [line 34] YONEI ALIYAH - doves that nest in an attic

15) [line 35] SHE'KANENU BI'TEFICHIN B'VIROS - that nested in pitcher-shaped utensils set up for that purpose in the walls and cornices of large buildings and forts (Birah - a group of buildings forming one residence)

16) [line 38] HANEI AVIDEI L'RABUYEI - are accustomed to fleeing
17) [line 38] LI'KELUVAN KA'AMRINAN D'AVIDEI L'RABUYEI - that is, they are accustomed to fleeing even further away, all the way back to their nests or cages, and even there they evade capture

18) [line 42] MA'ASEH LISTOR? - [did the Mishnah bring] the story [of Raban Gamliel in order] to contradict [its previous teaching?]


19) [line 1] NIGARIN - enclosures in which animals are kept that have channels of water from which the animals drink

20) [line 1] RISHTOS - nets
21) [line 2] MICHMOROS - traps, nets
22) [line 3] MEKULKALIN - destroyed; removed from their original place because of the thrashing of the animals that are caught on the other ends of the traps

23) [line 23] HADRI BI - I changed my opinion
24) [line 26] MEFULAMIN - (O.F. (ami) [mostece] - moisture, freshness) moist
25) [line 30] KAVREI D'ADIMEI - fish that [still have signs of freshness since the places under their gills] are red. It is (a) certain (RASHI, cited by TOSFOS DH Ela) (b) possible (TOSFOS ibid.) that they were caught on Erev Yom Tov.

26) [line 30] PEIREI D'CHEVISHEI B'YARKA - [fresh] fruits that were immediately covered with vegetables to preserve their freshness
