Chagigah 21

CHAGIGAH 21 - Dedicated by Dovid and Zahava Rubner of Petach Tikva. May Hashem grant them and all of their offspring with joy, fulfillment, and all that they need!


(a) What reason does Rebbi Ila give for the Reisha of our Mishnah, which forbids Toveling one Kodesh vessel inside another?

(b) What problem do we have with this from the Seifa 'she'be'Kodesh, Matir u'Menagev u'Matbil ... '?

(c) We answer that, in fact, both cases need to be mentioned.
Why would we not know the Chumra of ...

  1. ... 'Matir u'Menagev u'Matbil ... ' from that of the Reisha (prohibiting Toveling one vessel inside another)?
  2. ... the Reisha of the Mishnah from that of 'Matir u'Menagev u'Matbil ...'?
