Previous dafEruvin 83
(a) Rebbi Nasan and Rebbi Dosa describe the k'Beitzah of Tum'as Ochlin as
'Kamo'ah u'Kelifasah. What should it be according to ...
(b) Who are the Chachamim who give the Shiur of Tum'as Ochlin as a
k'Beitzah u'Mechtzah Shochkos?
- ... Rebbi Yehudah (of the Beraisa of Chatzi Peras)?
- ... Rebbi Yossi?
- ... Rebbi?
(c) Considering that the author of this statement is Rav Chisda, who has
already explained Rebbi Yochanan ben Berokah above to conform with this,
what is the Chidush?
(a) How many k'Beitzim are there in a Sa'ah Midbari, which comprises six
(b) In Yerushalayim, they added a sixth to the Sa'ah.
What does a sixth
really mean, and how many (whole) k'Beitzim are there in a Sa'ah
(c) In Tzipori, they added another sixth to the Sa'ah.
How many k'Beitzim
are there in a Sa'ah Tzipori?
(a) Rebbi reckons 217 k'Beitzim in a Ne'usian Sa'ah.
What is wrong with
the Gemara's contention (to reconcile that with the Shiur Tzipori) that
Rebbi added the Shiur Chalah?
(b) Then how *do* we account for the discrepancy?
(c) The Beraisa states that the Sa'ah Yerushalmi is one sixth more than
the Sa'ah Midbari, and the Sa'ah Tzipori one sixth more than the Sa'ah Y
erushalmi. Consequently, the difference between the Sa'ah Midbari and the
Sa'ah Tzipori is *one third*.
Which three suggestions (to explain the
final phrase i.e. one third of what?) does the Gemara reject outright?
(a) Rebbi Yirmiyah then suggests that what the Beraisa means is that the
difference between the Sa'ah Tzipori and the Sa'ah Midbari (63) is close
to a third of its own total (69), and that a third of its own total (69)
is close to a half of the Midbari Sa'ah (72).
Answers to questions
On what grounds does the
Gemara reject that suggestion too?
(b) How does the Gemara finally explain the Beraisa?
(a) The Shiur Chalah is the equivalent of 'a dough of the Midbar'.
we know how much the dough of the Midbar was?
(b) How many Sa'ah are there in an Eifah?
(c) Given the facts that an Eifah is the equivalent of a Bas, and that a
Kur equals thirty Sa'ah, what do we learn from the Pasuk in Yechezkel
"Ma'aser ha'Bas min ha'Kur"?
(d) Then how much did the Omer of Man that fell daily, contain ...
- ... in Sa'in?
- ... in Kabin?
- ... in Lugin?
- ... in k'Beitzim?
(a) What is the connection between *this* Shiur and the Shiur Chalah
quoted in the Mishnah 'Shiv'ah Reva'im Kemach ve'Od'?
(b) What did this become when it was transferred ...
(c) What are the Beraisa's concluding words regarding someone who eats
that amount, more than it or less than it?
- ... first into the Yerushalmi measurement?
- ... and then into the measurement of Tzipori?
(a) If the residents of the Chatzer and those of the balcony (which is at
least ten Tefachim high) forgot to make a combined Eruv, who is allowed to
carry in the Chatzer?
(b) In what sort of Reshus (besides the balcony itself) are the residents
of the balcony exclusively, permitted to carry?
(c) Why does the one not forbid the other to carry, on account of the
ladder that connects them?
