of Torah and Yir'as Shamayim!
(a) We just resolved the discrepancies in Rebbi Meir.
How will we resolve
Rebbi Yehudah, who decrees Shogeg on account of Meizid by Isurim d'Oraysa,

be'Shogeg and someone who ate it be'Meizid?
(b) What is the source for the former Din?
(c) What does the Beraisa require someone who ate Terumah Temei'ah be'Shogeg
(d) In the event that he paid Chulin Temei'in, Sumchus Mishum Rebbi Meir
rules 'be'Shogeg Tashlumav Tashlumin, be'Meizid Ein Tashlumav Tashlumin'.
What do the Chachamim say?
(a) Having already payed once, why is the one who ate Terumah be'Shogeg
obligated to pay again?
(b) What problem do we have with this K'nas? Why does it appear senseless to
(c) We therefore amend the Beraisa.
According to the new version, what
*does* he pay for eating Terumah Temei'ah be'Shogeg?

(a) What does Rebbi Meir mean when he says 'be'Meizid Ein Tashlumav
(b) What is then the basis of the Machlokes between Rebbi Meir and the
(c) Seeing as min'ha'Torah he was Yotze with the first payment, and the
second payment is only a K'nas mi'de'Rabbanan, why does Rebbi Meir not
decree here Shogeg Atu Meizid like he does by Metamei, Medamei and Menasech?
(a) What is the Din Torah if the blood of a Korban that became Tamei was
sprinkled on the Mizbei'ach? Is the Korban Kasher?
Answers to questions
(b) What does the Beraisa (whose author might be Rebbi Meir) say if the
Kohen sprinkled it be'Meizid? Does this mean that the owner does not have a
(c) Why does Rebbi Meir not decree Shogeg Atu Meizid here?
(d) We give the same answer regarding the Mishnah in Terumos 'ha'Me'aser
be'Shabbos be'Shogeg Yochal, be'Meizid Lo Yochal', and the Mishnah there
'ha'Matbil Keilim be'Shabbos, be'Shogeg Yishtamesh Bahem ... '.

(a) Why are Perech-nuts of Orlah not Bateil even in a thousand? Is this
d'Oraysa or mi'de'Rabbanan?
(b) Would they become Bateil if they were to break and fall into Heter by
(c) According to Rebbi Meir and Rebbi Yehudah, if the owner broke them, even
be'Shogeg, and they fell into the Heter, they would not become Bateil.
What does be'Shogeg mean?
(d) What do Rebbi Yossi and Rebbi Shimon say?
(a) Bearing in mind that the non-Bitul of Perech-nuts is mi'de'Rabbanan, why
does Rebbi Yehudah decree Shogeg on account of Meizid?
(b) What is the Shiur Bitul of Orlah and K'lai ha'Kerem?
(c) Why is a growing tree of Orlah not Bateil in even more than that?
(d) On what condition does the Tana Kama permit fruit that is subsequently
picked from it (Bedieved)? Why is it Bateil?
(a) Rebbi Yossi is more lenient than the Tana Kama of the Mishnah in Orlah.

(b) What does the Beraisa say about someone who is working with his friend
in Taharos or Kodshei Mizbei'ach, and tells him that the Taharos had become
Tamei or thea Kodshim Pigul?
(c) According to Abaye, the difference between this case and a similar case,
but where he referred to the Taharos or the Kodshim of a previous day, and
where he is not believed - is the fact that the latter is no longer
What does Rava say? In which point does he disagree with Abaye?
(d) Rebbi Ami thought to say like Abaye.
What did Rebbi Yochanan quoting
Rebbi Yossi say to him? What source did Rebbi Yitzchak bar Bisna cite for
(a) We refute the proof from the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos (regarding the Avodah
on Yom-Kipur) "ve'Chol Adam Lo Yihyeh be'Ohel Mo'ed", in spite of which he
is believed to say that he was Mefagel one of the Korbanos, by suggesting
that perhaps they heard him stating the Pigul.
On what grounds do we
reject this counter-proof?

(a) What did Rebbi Ami ...
(b) Why can one not simply overwrite the Names of Hashem to render the
- ... ask the Sofer who claimed that he had failed to write the Holy Names in the Sefer-Torah that he had written for so-and-so, Lishman?
- ... subsequently rule when the Sofer replied that the Sefer was already in the hands of the purchaser?
- ... reply to Rebbi Yirmiyah, who asked on what basis he should lose the remuneration for the entire Sefer, and not just for the Names?
(c) This is based on a Machlokes in a Beraisa, in which Rebbi Yehudah and
the Chachamim argue over someone who wrote Yehudah (but omitted the 'Vav')

(d) Why might Rebbi Ami's ruling even follow the opinion of Rebbi Yehudah?

- ... do the Chachamim say?
Why is our case worse than that of the Beraisa?
(a) What did Rebbi Avahu rule when a Sofer claimed that in the course of
preparing the Sefer-Torah that he had written for so-and-so, he had not made
the G'vilin (the parchment) Lishman?
Answers to questions
