Eruvin 7

ERUVIN 6-11 - sponsored by a generous grant from an anonymous donor. Kollel Iyun Hadaf is indebted to him for his encouragement and support and prays that Hashem will repay him in kind.

(a) The bones of a Mes are only Metamei through *Ohel* under one of three conditions: (1) they constitute a quarter of a Kav (Rova Ha'kav); (2) they consist of the majority of the body (whether they are the majority of the *build* (Rov Binyano) of the human body or the majority of the *number* (Rov Minyano) of 248 bones; (3) the bone is a complete skull or a complete spinal column.
(b) In order to be Metamei through *Maga* and *Masa*, it is enough for the bone to be the size of a Se'orah (grain of barley). An incomplete spine or skull are therefore Metamei through Maga and Masa. Beis Shamai and Beis Hilel disagree as to the amount missing at which point they are no longer Metamei through Ohel.
