Chagigah 8

CHAGIGAH 8 - sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of love for Torah and those who study it.


(a) In light of the principle 'Kol Davar she'be'Chovah Eino Ba'ah Ela min ha'Chulin', how can Beis Hillel permit the Chagigah of the first day of Pesach to be brought from Ma'aser money?

(b) According to Chizkiyah, Tefeilah is only permitted by adding an animal of Ma'aser to animals of Chulin.
What does Rebbi Yochanan say?

(c) What is the logic behind the opinion of ...

  1. ... Chizkiyah?
  2. ... Rebbi Yochanan?
(a) The Beraisa in support of Rebbi Yochanan quotes the Pasuk (in Re'ei , with regard to Shavu'os) "Misas".
What does the Tana learn from ...
  1. ... "Misas"?
  2. ... "Ka'asher Yevarech'cha Hashem Elokecha"?
(b) The Beraisa in support of Chizkiyah quotes Beis Shamai, who says that on the first day, one must fulfill the Mitzvah of Chagigah from Chulin, and from then on, even from Ma'aser.
What do Beis Hillel say?

(c) The Tana adds that on the subsequent days of Pesach, one may also fulfill the Mitzvah (through Tefeilah) with Ma'ser Beheimah. Why not on the first day, as well?

(d) What does he learn from the Pasuk in Esther "va'Yasem ha'Melech Achashveirosh Mas ... "?

(a) What does the Tana of another Beraisa learn from the (superfluous - see Tosfos DH 've'Samachta') Pasuk in Re'ei ...
  1. ... "*ve'Samachta* be'Chagecha"?
  2. ... "ve'Samachta *be'Chagecha*"?
(b) How does Rav Ashi learn even the second Derashah from "ve'Samachta"?

(c) Rav Ashi Darshens "be'Chagecha" like Rav Daniel bar Ketina.
How does Rav Daniel bar Ketina Darshen "be'Chagecha"?

Answers to questions



(a) The proportion of Shelamim to Olos is determined by the size of one's family and one's means.
What will it be if he has ...
  1. ... a large family and not much money?
  2. ... a lot of money and a small family?
(b) About which situation ...
  1. ... do Chazal specify one or two silver Ma'ah?
  2. ... does the Torah write in Re'ei "Ish ke'Matnas Yado ke'Virkas Hashem Elokecha Asher Nasan Lach"?
(a) How can the Tana obligate someone who has a large family and not much money to bring a lot of Shelamim? How is he expected to purchase a lot of Shelamim without much money?

(b) Rav Sheishes says 'Toflin Beheimah li'Beheimah'.
Why can he not simply be coming to preclude the possibility of being Tofel Ma'aser money to Chulin money?

(c) And what is the problem with saying that he really means '*Af* Toflin Beheimah li'Beheimah'?

(d) We conclude that, according to Rav Sheishes, the Beraisos (quoted above, one as a support for Rebbi Yochanan, the other, for Chizkiyah) do not argue. What does this mean? Does it mean that each Beraisa agrees with the other's statement?

(a) According to Ula quoting Resh Lakish, someone who designated ten animals for his Chagigah, of which he brought five on the first day of Yom-Tov, must bring the remaining five on the second day. Why does Rebbi Yochanan forbid it?

(b) What does Rebbi Aba mean when he says that Resh Lakish and Rebbi Yochanan do not actually argue? Then how does he explain their respective statements?

(c) If he failed to bring the remaining five animals due to a lack of time, then, even in a case of S'tam, he will be permitted to bring the remaining five on the second day.
When will this be permitted even if there *was* sufficient time to bring them? So in which case of S'tam may one not bring the remaining animals on the second day?

(d) We prove this from another (contradictory) statement made by Ravin quoting Rebbi Yochanan.
What did Ravin say in Rebbi Yochanan's name (that forces us to differentiate between S'tam and Meforash?

(a) Rav Sh'man bar Aba quoting Rebbi Yochanan says 'Lo Shanu Ela she'Lo Gamar, Aval Gamar, Chozer u'Makriv'.
Can 'Gamar' mean that he has finished all the animals?

(b) Then what *does* it mean?
