Previous dafEruvin 94
(a) Rebbi Eliezer renders Chayav, someone who carries from a Chatzer whose
dividing-wall between it and the Reshus ha'Rabim broke.
How much of the
wall needs to have been breached in order to be Chayav?
(b) What do the Chachamim say about this?
(a) What is the connection between Rebbi Eliezer in our Mishnah and the
Din of the public who chose a path through a field?
(b) Under what circumstances does Rebbi Eliezer issue these two rulings?
(c) What is the problem with this from Rebbi Chanina, who establishes the
Machlokes in our Mishnah 'Ad Makom Mechitzah Machlokes'?
(d) How do we get round this problem?
(a) What is the alternative way of understanding the Machlokes between
Rebbi Eliezer and the Rabbanan, and why do they not argue over a regular
case of 'Tzidei Reshus ha'Rabim'?
(b) In that case, why does Rebbi Eliezer say 'mi'Tochah' (suggesting that
the entire Chatzer is a Reshus ha'Rabim)?
(c) Since Rebbi Eliezer is not really speaking about the middle of the
Chatzer, why did the Rabbanan mention it?
(d) And what does Rebbi Eliezer reply to that?
(a) What does Rebbi Yehudah say about a Chatzer whose walls dividing it it
from the street are breached on two sides, or a room that is breached on
two sides - on Shabbos?
Answers to questions

(a) If the Tana (who forbids carrying in a Chatzer that is breached in two
walls leading to the street) is talking about a breach of up to ten Amos,
in what way is a breach in *two* walls less of a Pesach than a breach in
*one*, and if he is talking about a breach of more than ten Amos, then why
does he need to say that *two* walls were breached? What *does* he mean?
(b) Why is a Pesach in a corner not considered a Pesach?
(a) Is 'Pi Tikrah Yored ve'Sosem' effective by two sides of a corner?
(b) Then why does our Mishnah say 've'Chen Bayis she'Nifratz mi'Shtei
Ruchosav' - according to Rav? Why do we not say 'Pi Tikrah Yored
(c) Then what is the Chidush of *two* sides?
(a) What is Shmuel referring to when he says that our Mishnah is speaking
even by a breach of more than ten Amos?
(b) Then why does the Tana need to say *two* walls that broke?
(c) And why is it necessary to mention two sides by a house that was
(d) In which case does Shmuel in principle, *not* hold 'Pi Tikrah Yored
(a) Why does Shmuel not establish our Mishnah by a corner when the roof
slopes (like Rav)?
(b) Then how does he learn the Mishnah? Why will we not say 'Pi Tikrah
Yored ve'Sosem' - even on two (and not three) sides?
(c) On what grounds does Rav disagree with Shmuel?
(a) Why will Shmuel agree that one may carry even more than four Amos in
a porch whose walls are not more than ten Amos?
Answers to questions
(b) How does the second Lashon explain their Machlokes?
(c) What does Rav Yehudah say with regard to a beam of four Amos in a
house, and Rav Nachman quoting Rabah bar Avuha with regard to a beam of
four Amos suspended over water?
(d) Like whom will they hold ...
- ... according to the first Lashon?
