*****************************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] Tosfos 97a DH Amar Rava:
The words "v'Af Rebbi *Yehudah* Gaon"
should be "v'Af Rebbi *Yehudai* Gaon"

[2] Rashi 97b DH Mai Da'atich: The words "v'Ha Rose'ach *Gid*"
should be "v'Ha Rose'ach *d'Gid*"

[3] Rashi 97b DH keshe'Hen Mesha'arin:
The words "*u'Mesha'arinan* Oso"
should be "*Mesha'arin* Oso" (see Rashash)

[4] Rashi 97b DH Mesha'arinan etc.:
The words "*uv'Hach* Isurei"
should be "*uv'Hanach* Isurei"

[5] Tosfos 97b DH Ela etc.:
The words "*v'Ein* Safek"
should be "*she'ein* Safek"

1) [line 1] D'MEFA'APE'A - that it penetrates (O.F. trestrest)
2) [line 3] BI'CHENISHTA D'MA'ON - in the synagogue of Ma'on, a city west of Teveryah
3) [line 5] KACHUSH - a weak animal, (a) the Chelev of which does not penetrate into the meat (TOSFOS, 1st explanation); (b) that has only a small amount of Chelev, that is Batel b'Shishim (TOSFOS, 2nd explanation)

4) [line 6] KULYA - a kidney
5) [line 7] KILKIS - a small non-kosher fish
6) [line 9] KEFEILA ARAMA'A - a Nochri who is a professional cook


(a) When a forbidden object is mixed with a permitted object, the mixture may be prohibited to be eaten mid'Oraisa, prohibited to be eaten mid'Rabanan, or permitted to be eaten, as follows:

1. If most of the mixture is Isur, it is prohibited mid'Oraisa.
2. If most of the mixture is Heter, but the Isur is more than one sixtieth of the Heter, i.e. the Isur is "Nosen Ta'am" (lends taste) to the Heter, it is prohibited mid'Rabanan (since "Ta'am k'Ikar," the "taste" is like the essence is a Din d'Rabanan -- there are those who prohibit this mixture mid'Oraisa, when the two mixed substances are unidentical ("Min beshe'Eino Mino"), asserting that "Ta'am k'Ikar" is mid'Oraisa).
3. If the amount of Isur is less than one sixtieth of the Heter, and is not Nosen Ta'am to the Heter, the mixture is permitted.
(b) The above applies when unidentical substances are mixed (e.g. they were cooked together and the Isur is Nosen Ta'am to the Heter). However, when a liquid mixes with an identical liquid ("Min b'Mino"), the Tana'im argue as to the status of the mixture. According to Rabanan, since identical substances are not Nosen Ta'am to each other at all, the Isur can be nullified by a majority of Heter (and sixty parts of Heter are not required). According to Rebbi Yehudah, the opposite is true. Even a miniscule amount of Isur prohibits the mixture, since mid'Oraisa the Isur is not nullified at all. (When two identical *dry* substances become mixed together, all agree that the majority in the mixture determines the mixture's Halachic status -- TOSFOS to Yevamos 82a, DH Rebbi Yehudah. See, however, RASHI cited by Tosfos 81b DH Rebbi Yehudah.)

8) [line 5] ATMAHASA - thighs
9) [line 10] K'ROSE'ACH - is considered as if it is hot (from a fire)

15) [line 25] KECHAL - an udder
16) [line 38] KI MAYA D'BEI'EI B'ALMA - like mere water; eggs are not considered to be Nosen Ta'am, since they are considered like mere water
