Beitzah 15

BEITZAH 11-15 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi publications for these Dafim, for the benefit of Klal Yisrael


(a) If one has a hard fur that comprises Sha'atnez, may one ...
  1. ... sit on it?
  2. ... wear it?
(b) May one wear 'Ardalin' (a kind of footwear made mainly of wool that was worn on the heel) if it comprises Sha'atnez?

(c) According to Rava, is one permitted to wear a garment (something like a money-belt) comprising Sha'atnez, that is meant to hold ...

  1. ... money?
  2. ... seeds?
(d) What does Rav Ashi say?
(a) Why may one not send a Sandal ha'Mesumar as a gift on Yom-Tov?

(b) Is it Muktzah on Shabbos or Yom-Tov?

(a) The Tana of our Mishnah forbids sending a shoe that has not yet been stitched.
But is that not obvious?

(b) Rebbi Yehudah forbade sending a white shoe, but permitted a blackened one.
On what grounds did he forbid the former?

(c) Rebbi Yossi forbade sending even a *black* shoe.

(d) Rebbi Yehudah and Rebbi Yossi do not, in fact, argue.
How is this possible?

4) Rav Sheshes permitted the Rabbanan to send Tefilin on Yom-Tov.
How do we reconcile this with our Mishnah, which specifically writes 'Kol *she'Ne'osin Bo be'Yom-Tov*, Meshalchin Oso' (clearly restricting the Heter to send to things from which one can benefit on Yom-Tov)? Then why does the Tana say 'be'Yom-Tov'?


(a) What did Abaye say about someone wearing Tefilin, who was ...
  1. ... on his way home on Erev Shabbos, and it got dark?
  2. ... sitting in the Beis Hamedrash on Erev Shabbos, and it got dark?
(b) We ask on Abaye from a Beraisa, which seems to clash with him on both points.
What does the Beraisa say?

(c) We establish the Beraisa by a house where it is safe to leave them, and Abaye when it is *not*.
What is then the problem with Abaye's case? What does one do if he finds a pair of Tefilin in a field on Shabbos?

(a) According to the Gemara's conclusion, Abaye speaks when the Tefilin are guarded against dogs, but not against thieves.
How will the Din differ ...
  1. ... if he found them on the ground?
  2. ... if they are not guarded at all (even from dogs)?
(b) What is Abaye's Chidush? Why might we have thought that one should not carry them into town even if he is already wearing them (seeing as they are safe against dogs)?
