Berachos 29

***************GIRSA SECTION********************
We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, Rav B. Rensburg 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 Gemara, Rashi or Tosfos.)

[1] Gemara 29a [line 15]:
"Amar Lach Rava, Tzadik me'Ikaro ... Lo Askuhu"
These words do not appear in Dikdukei Sofrim #7

1) [line 1] HISHKIF BAH - he tried to remember it (lit. he looked deeply into it)

2) [line 1] HE'ALUHU - they didn't stop him from being the Chazan at that point (since the Chazan used to pray in a low place of the synagogue, replacing him was called Ha'ala'ah [lit. bringing him up])

3) [line 6] GEMIREI - we have learned, it is well known

4) [line 26] ESRIM V'ARBA'A D'TA'ANISA
When a community suffered because of lack of rain, the Beis Din enacted public fasts to cause the people to repent so that the decree would be rescinded. In all, thirteen fasts were enacted in groups of three, three and seven, respectively. During the last seven, the Chazan would pray a special Shemoneh Esrei prayer which consisted of twenty-four Berachos, as specified in Maseches Ta'anis 15a. The six extra Berachos were inserted in between the seventh and eighth Berachos of the regular Shemoneh Esrei prayer.

5) [line 27] RENANOS - words that refer to prayer. There are fourteen related to the word "Tefilah", nine related to the word "Techinah" and one "Rinah"

6) [line 34] DASHNENU - satiate us (lit. to make us fat)
7) [line 35] TO'IM - those who stray (do Aveiros)
8) [line 35] TANIF YADECHA - wave Your hand (to get rid of them)
9) [line 46] ASI L'ITRUDEI - he will get mixed up [and not know how to continue]


10) [line 24] MISTEFINA - I am afraid
11) [line 26] DIMDUMEI CHAMAH - dawn and dusk
12) [line 31] DILMA MITREFA LEI SHA'ATA - lest he be disturbed during that time and not get to pray Minchah

14) [line 35] UBRA - pregnant
15) [line 38] GEDUDEI CHAYAH - packs of wild animals
16) [line 44] GEVIYAH - person (lit. body)
