Eruvin 102

1a) [line 3] NAGAR HA'NIGRAR - a peg (that is placed into a hole in the doorstep to lock the door) that is attached to the door with a string long enough to make the peg drag on the floor
b) [line 5] HA'MUNACH - a peg that is lying on the floor and is not attached to the door

2) [line 17] IVRA D'DASHA - the bolt of the door
3) [line 20] KA KATIR B'GEMI - he tied the peg with a soft reed
4) [line 20] DEIN LO NITROK - this one may not [be used to] bolt the door
5) [line 21] NIKMAZ - when the peg (goes through the threshold and) bores into the ground
6) [line 29] BUCHNA KA'AMART - are you asking about [the equivalent of] a pestle (which is definitely permitted since it is a utensil)?

7) [line 31] SHARISA - a beam
8) [line 31] D'HAVAH MADLU LAH BEI ASARAH - that could only be lifted by ten people
9) [line 32] V'SHADU LAH A'DASHA - and it was set against the door
10) [line 33] ASISA - a mortar
11) [line 33] ADRIVA - a Persian and Egyptian dry measure which is the equivalent of a Lesech [= 1/2 Kur, 15 Se'ah, approx. 124.4 liters (34.2 gallons) or 216 liters (59.4 gallons), depending upon the differing Halachic opinions]

12) [line 35] ME'HALEIN MILEI MA'ALYASA - from those fine teachings
13) [line 36] KEIFEI D'ARBA - arched chambers of a boat that are made by bending poles in the shape of an bow from one side of the boat to the other. They are affixed at intervals of half an Amah along the entire length of the boat, which creates the frame of a canopy. Cloths or mats are used as the canopy.

14) [line 39] TULA - shade
15) [line 40] KEROCH BUDYA - before Shabbos night, fold the mat of reeds (that is used as a covering during the day) so that it is no less than a Tefach wide (but do not remove it completely). In this way you will be able to spread it again on Shabbos day.

16) [line 41] PASHTAH - spread it out
17) [line 42] VILON - a curtain which covers the doorway for privacy
18) [line 42] KILAS CHASANIM - (a) a curtain that is hung over and around a bed (RASHI); (b) a "groom's canopy" that is made for decorative purposes only, not for sleeping (RASHI Shabbos 138b).


19) [line 1] SHIPU'AH - the measurement of the horizontal component of its decline (i.e. the width as measured at the bottom from the center of the canopy to one of the outer edges)

20a) [line 2] SHIPU'EI OHALIM K'OHALIM DAMEI - the slope of the walls of a tent is considered as if it stretches out perpendicular to the ground, and it is therefore considered an "Ohel."
*b*) [line 2] SHIPU'EI OHALIM, K'OHALIM DAMI - that is, we know that with regard to the laws of building on Shabbos, it is only prohibited to construct an Ohel which has a flat surface one Tefach wide at its top (or it is one Tefach in width anywhere within three Tefachim of the top). If it has a pointed top, it is not included in the prohibition of constructing an Ohel on Shabbos. The Gemara here is teaching that the one- Tefach width at the top does not have to lie exactly parallel to the floor. Even if it angles towards the floor -- and even if it continues until it meets the floor -- it is considered to be an Ohel if it is one Tefach wide. Therefore, one may not construct a tent with sloping walls that are one Tefach in width, on Shabbos.

21) [line 3] SIA'NA - a wide-brimmed felt hat; see Insights to Shabbos 138:2
22) [line 5] SHARBIV BI'GELIMEI TEFACH - if he extended his Talis from the front of his head one Tefach outward

23) [line 7] TZIR HA'TACHTON - the lower pivot (hinge) of a door of a chest or cupboard

24a) [line 13] BOR - a well that is dug in ground that is hard enough to contain liquids
b) [line 14] DUS - a well in the ground that is lined with stones
25) [line 14] YATZI'A - extension, wing of a building
26) [line 15] RETIYAH - a cloth that is smeared with a salve; a bandage
27) [line 18] HUCHLEKAH - if it slid
28) [line 28] A'BEI SADYA - on his pillow
29) [line 33] NIMA - a harp-string
30) [line 36] ONVAH - he attaches it by tying a bow
31) [line 37] MACHSHIREI MITZVAH - actions performed in preparation for a Mitzvah
