Previous daf

Beitzah 35

1) [line 1] MOSARO CHOZER - what is left over is able to be returned [to the place from where it was taken] (When a food item satisfies the condition of Mosro Chozer, Rebbi Eliezer rules that the original action of taking the food in order to eat it -- even a lot of it -- does not make it "Hukba l'Ma'aser" (designated for tithing); see Background to Beitzah 34:31.)

2) [line 3] MA'ATAN - a vat or pit where olives are packed in order to heat and soften them


3) [line 9] DORSIN - press their figs and make them into cakes of dried figs

*****PEREK #5 MESHILIN*****

4) [line 19] MESHILIN - it is permitted to throw down
5) [line 19] ARUBAH - skylight; aperture in the roof
6) [line 20] DELEF - a leak
7) [line 22] MASHCHILIN - to lower
8) [line 23] "[ZEISIM YIHEYU LECHA B'CHOL GEVULECHA, V'SHEMEN LO SASUCH] KI YISHAL ZEISECHA." - "[You will have olive trees throughout your borders, but you will not anoint yourselves with oil, for your olives will fall off." (Devarim 28:40)

9a) [line 24] HA'SHACHUL - an animal with a dislocated hip
b) [line 24] VEHA'KASUL - an animal with a deformed hip (where one hip is higher than the other)

10) [line 24] SHE'NISHMETAH YERECHO - in which the hip is dislocated
11) [line 26] MESHIRIN - to let down
12) [line 27] MANSHIRIN - to let fall
13) [line 33] MEFANIN - it is permitted to clear away and remove
*14*) [line 33] KUPOS - baskets, each of which can hold 3 Se'ah (TOSFOS Shabbos 126b DH Mefanin, see Gemara Shabbos 127a). Our Mishnah is referring to an amount of produce that can fill these baskets

15a) [line 29] HA'SHACHOR - (a) the razor (RASHI); (b) the small scissors (TOSFOS)
b) [line 29] VEHA'ZOG SHEL SAPARIM - and the (standard size)s scissors of barbers

16) [line 31] LEKET
"Leket" refers to individual (one or two) stalks that have fallen from the sickle or from the reaper's hand during the harvest. Such stalks may not be retrieved by the owner but must be left for the poor, as described in Vayikra (19:9-10) "v'Leket Ketzircha Lo Selaket ... le'Ani vela'Ger Ta'azov Osam." ("Do not pick up the individual stalks that have fallen from the harvest ... you shall leave them (the gifts of Pe'ah, Leket, Olelos and Peret) for the poor and the stranger.") If three stalks fall together, they are not considered Leket and may be retrieved by the owner.

*17*) [line 37] YOM TOV, D'KIL, VASI L'ZALZULEI BEI, KELAL KELAL LO - that is, since the punishment for performing Melachah on Yom Tov is not as strict as that for performing Melachah on Shabbos, perhaps we should not permit moving *four or five baskets* of fruit, but only a smaller amount may be moved (see Insights)
