CHAGIGAH 23, 24, 25 - have been sponsored by a grant from a benevolent
foundation based in Yerushalayim, that is dedicated to spreading awareness
of Torah and Judaism.
(a) We asked on Rav Chanin, who learns 'ha'K'li Metzaref Mah she'Besocho',
from the Pasuk "Kaf Achas ...", that according to Rebbi Akiva, it is only
mi'de'Rabbanan. Resh Lakish Amar Bar Kapara answers 'Lo Nitzrecha Ela
What does he mean by that?
(b) This solves the problem with regard to the flour of the Menachos. How
will Resh Lakish solve it with regard to the Ketores and the Levonah, which
do not have any leftovers (and which Rebbi Akiva includes in his list of
(c) Rebbi Chiya bar Aba disagrees with Rav Chanin (with regard to 'Tziruf
K'li' being d'Oraysa).
What does *he* say?
(a) Is a Mechusar Kipurim permitted to eat ...
(b) How does Rebbi Yossi learn ...
- ... Terumah?
- ... Kodesh?
(c) How can one learn a Chumra in a. from b. with a 'Kal va'Chomer' when the
Chumra does not exist in b. itself (e.g. to learn that a Shelishi makes a
Revi'i ba'Kodesh from the fact that he is forbidden to eat Terumah, when by
Terumah itself there is no Revi'i, only a Shelishi)? Why do we not say 'Dayo
Lavo min ha'Din Liheyos ke'Nadun'?
- ... that a Revi'i le'Tum'ah is Pasul le'Kodesh with a 'Kal va'Chomer' from a Mechusar Kipurim?
- ... a Shelishi is Pasul li'Terumah with a 'Kal va'Chomer' from T'vul Yom?
- ... that a Shelishi le'Tum'ah is forbidden to eat Kodesh from the Pasuk in Tzav "ve'ha'Basar Asher Yiga be'Chol Tamei Lo Ye'achel"?
(d) How will those who do not learn 'Dayo' even if, as a result, the 'Kal
va'Chomer' will be ineffective, answer the Kashya?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah that one hand transmits Tum'ah to the other
What does Rav Shizbi mean when he establishes this
(b) What is then the reason for the decree, according to him?
(c) What happens to the Tahor hand if it touches Kodesh when it is not
touching the Tamei one, according to Rav Shizbi? Does the hand at least
become a Shelishi, to render the Kodesh Pasul?
(a) According to Rebbi in a Beraisa, when the Tamei hand is dry it renders
the Tahor hand a Sheini, to make the Kodesh that it touches a Shelishi.
What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah say?
Answers to questions
(b) How does Abaye repudiate Rav Shizbi's explanation (establishing the
Mishnah of one hand rendering the other hand Tamei by 'be'Chiburin'), from
the fact that the Beraisa stresses that the hand is dry?
(a) According to Resh Lakish, the Tamei hand transmits Tum'ah to the other
hand of the same person, but not to someone else's.
What does Rebbi
(b) What degree of Tum'ah does the one hand transmit to the other?
(c) Does the second hand also transmit Tum'ah to someone else's hand
according to Rebbi Yochanan?
(d) Resh Lakish later concedes to Rebbi Yochanan that the hand transmits
Tum'ah even to someone else's.
How did Rebbi Yochanan derive this from our
Mishnah ' ... she'ha'Yad Metam'ah Chavertah le'Kodesh Aval Lo li'Terumah"?
(a) According to Rebbi Yehoshua in a Beraisa, one hand renders the other
Tamei (to make it a Sheini).
What do the Rabbanan say?
(b) How would we explain the Rabbanan without saying that they support Rebbi
Yochanan (who says that the one hand renders the other hand a Shelishi, and
not a Sheini)?
(c) In another Beraisa, Rebbi says that one hand renders the other a Sheini
to be Metamei Kodesh, but not Terumah.
What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi
(a) We learned in our Mishnah 'Ochlin Ochlin Neguvin be'Yadayim Meso'avos
bi'Terumah Aval Lo ba'Kodesh'.
Is there any difference between wet food
and dry food as regards Kodesh?
(b) In that case, how does Rebbi Chanina ben Antignos in a Beraisa establish
the case in our Mishnah? How did the Kodesh get into his mouth?
(c) What did Chazal now decree?
(a) Is there any difference whether the Chulin had ever been wet before or
(b) Why did Chazal necessitate Tevilah on the part of someone who was an
O'nen or a Mechusar Kipurim?
(a) What does the Tana mean when he writes 'Ne'emanin al Taharas Yayin
ve'Shemen Kol Yemos ha'Shanah'? When did the Am ha'Aretz declare them
(b) This Mishnah lists cases where Terumah is more stringent than Kodesh.
What is the Din in the equivalent case by Terumah?
(c) What should the Am ha'Aretz do with the barrel of Terumah wine after the
season of wine-pressing has come to an end?
(d) How will the above Halachah differ if the Am ha'Aretz says that he added
a Revi'is of wine for the Nesachim to the barrel?
(a) What does our Mishnah say about barrels of wine and of oil that are
Answers to questions
