BEITZAH 36-40 (Siyum!) - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi
publications for these Dafim, for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.
(a) We just concluded that Rav Hoshaya holds 'Ein Bereirah' by D'Oraysos,
but 'Yesh Bereirah' by de'Rabbanans.
In which point does Rebbi Yochanan
disagree with him?
(b) Like whom is the Halachah?
(a) 'Amar Shmuel, *Shor shel Petem*, Harei Hu ke'Raglei Kol Adam'.
a Shor shel Petem?
(b) What does 'Kol Adam' mean?
(c) What is the reason for this Halachah?
(d) What did Shmuel say about a *Shor shel Ro'eh*?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah that if someone borrows a vessel from his
friend on Erev Yom-Tov, the vessel follows the borrower regarding Techumin.
But is that not obvious?
(b) And why does the Tana need to tell us that vessels borrowed *on* Yom-
Tov, follow the lender? Is that not obvious, too?
(a) What was Rebbi Aba keen to achieve when he went to Eretz Yisrael?
Answers to questions
(b) What problem did the Amora'im of Eretz Yisrael have with our Mishnah,
which rules that even the woman who owns the water and the salt prevents the
woman who owns the flour from taking the dough where the other one cannot
(c) How did Rebbi Aba attempt to answer their Kashya (hoping that he would
achieve his ambition)?
(a) How did the Amora'im react ...
(b) Rav Oshaya justified their laughing, based on the fact that even Rebbi
Aba did not ask from wheat and barley.
- ... to Rebbi Aba's answer?
- ... to Rebbi Aba's question when he asked them whether they had laughed because he took their 'Gulsa'?
What did he mean?
(c) What did Rav say regarding someone who picks stones from his friend's
(d) How does Rav Safra attempt to substantiate Rebbi Aba from that ruling?
(a) Abaye maintains that our case of the dough is not comparable to picking
stones from his friend's granary. Why not?
(b) What distinction does Rav Chisda make between a piece of Neveilah
falling into a pot containing Shechutah, and a piece of Shechutah falling
into a pot of Neveilah?
(c) How does Rav Safra refute Abaye's Kashya from there?
(d) How does he substantiate this with Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri's statement
regarding objects of Hefker? What does Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri say?
(a) On what grounds does Abaye nevertheless insist that the water and the
salt should be Bateil?
Answers to questions
(b) In that case, how will Abaye answer the Amora'im's original Kashya? Why
does the water and salt of the one woman prevent the owner of the flour from
taking her dough to wherever *she* is permitted to go?
(c) Rava answers the Kashya on the *spices*.
What does *he* say? Do Abaye
and Rava argue?
(d) Rav Ashi gives another reason as to why the water and the salt should
not be Bateil.
What is it?
