(b) Why does Mar Yehudah have ...

- ... no problem with the case of Beheimah?

(c) How does this answer Mar Yehudah's Kashya?
(d) According to Rabah, does Rebbi Shimon hold that Chulin she'Nishchatu
ba'Azarah is d'Oraysa or de'Rabbanan?
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Eikev "Vehayisa Cherem Kamohu"?
(b) What can we extrapolate from there with re. to other Isurei Hana'ah?
(c) Why do we not learn from a 'Mah Matzinu' from Avodas Kochavim, that the
Isur is transferred to the money?
(d) What do we learn from ...

(a) What actually happens with the proceeds of Shevi'is in a case where one
(b) The significance of the fact that we now have two cases where the Isur
is transferred to (or extends to) the money is that we now have 'Sh'nei
Kesuvim ha'Ba'im ke'Echad'.
- ... meat with Sh'mitah fruit?

Cherem *Hu*" and the Pasuk "Yovel *Hi*"?
(a) What does our Mishnah say about someone who betroths a woman with

(b) The Tana adds 'va'Afilu Yisrael'.
According to the plain meaning of

(d) Rebbi Aba queried a statement of Ula from this Mishnah.

Answers to questions
(b) What Chidush is the Tana then coming to teach us?
(c) Why did Ula not establish the Mishnah when the Mekadesh inherited
*Terumah* from his maternal grandfather?
(d) When Rav Huna attempted to resolve Rav Chiya bar Avin's She'eilah about
whether Tovas Hana'ah is Mamon or not, from our Mishnah, the latter pointed
to Ula's interpretation of the Mishnah.
What did ...
- ... Rav Huna mean when he retorted "Hotza'ah At'?
- ... Rav Chiya bar Avin think Rav Huna meant (with the result that h felt embarrassed)?
(a) According to Rebbi in a Beraisa, someone who steals his friend's Tevel
and eats it, is obligated to pay for everything he ate. Considering that
part of what he ate is Chulin, and part Ma'asros, what exactly does this
(b) What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah say?
(c) We refute the suggestion that Rebbi obligates him to pay for the
Ma'asros too, because he holds 'Tovas Hana'ah Mamon', whereas Rebbi Yossi
b'Rebbi Yehudah holds 'Tovas Hana'ah Eino Mamon'.
What then, will be the
basis of their Machlokes? What is the case?
(d) What will both opinions then hold with re. to 'Tovas Hana'ah Mamon?
(a) Alternatively, both Tana'im hold ' ... K'mi she'Hurmu Damyan' and 'Tovas
Hana'ah Eino Mamon', and they argue over Shmuel's Din.
What does Shmuel
say regarding Shiur Terumah?

(c) Does Rebbi also argue with Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah regarding
(d) We could have established their Machlokes like in the previous case

'Tovas Hana'ah Mamon', and they argue over Shmuel's Din.
Why did we not do
(a) Finally, we propose that neither Tana holds like Shmuel, or that both
hold like him.
Assuming that Rebbi *does not hold like Shmuel*, why might
he nevertheless obligate the thief to pay in full?
(b) And why might Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah exempt him from paying in
full, even if he *does*?
(a) What does the Mishnah in Bechoros say about ...
***** Hadran Alach ha'Ish Mekadesh *****
(b) How do we resolve our Mishnah which rules 'ha'Mekadesh ... be'Mei Chatas
u've'Eifer Parah, Mekudeshes, va'Afilu Yisrael', with the Mishnah in
Bechoros? What sort of Hana'ah is the man (and subsequently the woman
permitted to derive from the Mei Chatas and the Eifer Parah)?

another man had betrothed earlier ...
(c) In a case where a second man did not betroth her, where in the Reisha,
she is permitted to eat Terumah during those thirty days (see Tosfos
Yom-Tov), why, in the Seifa, is she not, assuming she is ...
- ... for after thirty days?
- ... from then and after thirty days?
- ... a bas Yisrael le'Kohen?
