Previous daf Bava Kama 76
1) [line 4] ELA A'HEKDESH LICHAYEIV - but he *should* be obligated [to pay
Arba'ah v'Chamishah] for making the animal Hekdesh!
2) [line 4] MAH LI MACHRO L'HEDYOT, MAH LI MACHRO LA'SHAMAYIM - what
difference does it make if he sold it to a person, or if he sold it (i.e.
made it Hekdesk) to Shamayim?
3a) [line 9] KODSHIM KALIM / KODSHEI KODASHIM
(a) The term Kodshei Kodashim refers to the Korbenos Olah, Chatas and Asham
(and Menachos), which have a *greater* degree of sanctity. They may only be
slaughtered in the northern part of the Azarah and may only be eaten in the
Azarah by Kohanim.
(b) The term Kodshim Kalim refers to the Korbenos Shelamim, Todah, Ma'aser
Behemah, Pesach and Bechor, which have a *lesser* degree of sanctity. They
may be slaughtered in the entire Azarah (and not only in its northern part)
and may be eaten in the entire city of Yerushalayim by men or women.
b) [line 10] MAMON BE'ALIM HU
(a) As soon as a person dedicates any article of his property to Hekdesh, it
leaves his possession and enters the possession of Hekdesh. Therefore, the
person may no longer sell it or give it as a present as a normal owner
(b) However, Rebbi Yosi ha'Gelili rules that this law only applies to
Kodshei Kodashim (see Background to Pesachim 82:8b) and to Kodshei Bedek
ha'Bayis (objects that are dedicated to Hekdesh *not* as a sacrifice), which
are considered Mamon Gavo'ah (property of Heaven) as soon as they are
dedicated. Kodshim Kalim remain the property of their owner in all respects
until they are slaughtered, except for the fact that they must be offered on
the Mizbe'ach to fulfill his pledge. Therefore, according to Rebbi Yosi
ha'Gelili, a person may use Kodshim Kalim to betroth a woman; likewise, he
may sell them or give them as a present.
4) [line 18] TORA - ox
5) [line 36] B'SHOCHET TEMIMIM MI'BIFNIM L'SHEM BE'ALIM - the case is one in
which the Ganav slaughters unblemished animals (of Kodshim) inside the
Azarah for the sake of its owner
6) [line 37] CHAZRA KEREN LA'BE'ALIM - the ownership of the principle value
of the animal reverts back to its original owner
7) [line 39] SHE'NISHPACH HA'DAM - its blood was spilled (and thus it is no
longer fit to be brought as a Korban)
8) [line 1] B'SHOCHET BA'ALEI MUMIN BA'CHUTZ - the case is one in which the
Ganav slaughters the blemished animal outside of the Azarah
9) [line 2] TAHI BAH - wondered and contemplated about it
10) [line 2] SHECHITAH MATERES? VA'HALO ZERIKAH MATERES!? - Does Shechitah
permit [the animal that was sanctified]? Is it not the Zerikah (the casting
of its blood on the Mizbe'ach) that permits it!?
11) [line 4] VA'HALO PEDIYAH MATERES!? - Is it not the redemption [of the
blemished animal that was sanctified] that permits it!?
12) [line 4] ISHTAMITSEI - it slipped by him
13) [line 5] KOL HA'OMED LIZROK K'ZARUK DAMI, V'CHOL HA'OMED LIFDOS K'PADUY
DAMI - any animal [that was sanctified] that is ready to have Zerikah done
with its blood, is considered to already have had Zerikah done, and any
animal [that was sanctified and that became blemished] that is ready to be
redeemed, is considered to have been redeemed
14) [line 8] NOSAR
(a) If any meat of a Korban remains after the time that was allotted for it
to be eaten, it must be burned, as the Torah states, "b'Yom Zivchachem
Ye'achel umi'Macharas, *veha'Nosar* Ad Yom ha'Shelishi ba'Esh Yisaref." -
"It shall be eaten the same day that you slaughter it and on the next day,
and anything that *remains* until the third day shall be burned in fire."
(b) If someone eats Nosar intentionally he is Chayav Kares. If he eats it
unintentionally, he must bring a Korban Chatas (SEFER HA'CHINUCH Mitzvah
15) [line 8] TUM'AS OCHLIN
(a) All foods become Tamei if they touch a source of Tum'ah, but only after
they first become wet. From then on, even after they dry, they can still
(b) Seven liquids can enable foods to become Tamei: water, dew, oil, wine,
milk, blood, and honey.
(c) The minimum amount of food that can become Tamei is a k'Beitzah.
16) [line 9] LAN
Blood of a slaughtered Korban that was not sprinkled on the Mizbe'ach before
sunset becomes disqualified. Nevertheless, if it *was* sprinkled on the
Mizbe'ach after sunset, it is not removed.
17) [line 12] KODEM SHE'NIR'EH LI'ZERIKAH - before it became fit to have its
blood thrown on the Mizbe'ach
