... Rebbi Yehudah, the murderers had to pay the Levi'im rent.
(d) What does Rav Kahana extrapolate from the Pasuk ve'Hayu *Lachem* he'Arim
le'Miklat mi'Go'el ... "? To which towns does this refer?
What does Rebbi Meir say?
... Rebbi Meir, when the murderer returned to his hometown, he would return to whatever prominent position he held previously.
What does Rebbi Yehudah say?
(a) If Rebbi Yehudah interprets "Lachem" to mean 'to take you in', how does
Rebbi Meir interpret it?
(b) What will then be the Din regarding the other forty-two Arei Miklat?
(c) On what grounds does Rava object to Rav Kahana's interpretation?
(d) According to Rava, the basis of the Machlokes is then how to interpret
the Pasuk (in connection with the forty-two towns) "va'Aleihem Titnu".
do Rebbi Yehudah and Rebbi Meir respectively, interpret it?
(a) Rebbi Yehudah explains the Pasuk "ve'Shav el Mishpachto (ve'el Achuzas
Avosav Yashuv") to mean that he returns to his family, but not to his

are Chayav Malkos 'a sister, a paternal and a maternal aunt, a wife's sister
and brother's wife (sisters-in-law), a father's brother's wife (an aunt by
marriage) and a Nidah.
What do they all have in common?
(b) The list of 'Lokin' is not comprehensive, seeing as there are three
hundred and sixty-five La'avin (most of which are subject to Malkos).
did the Tana choose to insert ...
(c) Why does the Tana include 'Almanah le'Kohen Gadol' and 'Gerushah
va'Chalutzah le'Kohen Hedyot' in the list?
- ... Tevel, Ma'aser Rishon she'Lo Nitlah Terumaso and Hekdesh she'Lo Nifdeh?
- ... Ma'aser Sheini she'Lo Nifdeh?
- ... most other La'avin in our Mishnah?
(d) In that case, why does a Kohen only receive one set of Malkos for a
woman who is both a Gerushah and a Chalutzah?
(a) He also includes 'Mamzares u'Nesinah le'Yisrael'.
What is the source
of the La'av pertaining to a Nesinah?
(b) Will Malkos also apply the other way round (to a 'bas Yisrael le'Nasin
(c) The La'av for Nosar is the Pasuk in Tetzaveh "ve'Sarafta es ha'Nosar
ba'Eish, Lo Ye'achel".
What do we learn from the continuation of the Pasuk
"Ki Kodesh Hu"?

've'ha'Sach be'Shemen ha'Mishchah'?

(c) One receives Malkos for eating Ma'aser Sheini that was not redeemed,
from the Pasuk in Re'ei "Lo Suchal Le'echol bi'She'arecha".

(a) The author of our Mishnah that includes Chayvei K'risus in Malkos but
not Chayvei Misas Beis-Din, is Rebbi Akiva (in a Beraisa).
Answers to questions
does he give for this?
(b) What does Rebbi Yishmael say there?
(c) What does Rebbi Yitzchak say? How does he learn this from 'Achoso'?
(d) But how does Rebbi Yitzchak know that this extends to all Chayvei
(a) We cite Rebbi Yishmael's source (to give Malkos to both Chayvei K'risus
and Chayvei Misas Beis-Din) as the Pasuk in Ki Savo "Im Lo Sishmor La'asos
es Kol Divrei ha'Torah ha'Zos ... ve'Hiflah Hashem es Makoscha".
Rebbi Yishmael extrapolate Malkos from there?
(b) We nevertheless preclude Chayvei Asei from Malkos, initially based on a
principle of Rebbi Avin Amar Rebbi Ilai.
What does he say about 'Kol
Makom she'Ne'emar Hishamer, Pen ve'Al'?
(c) What do we initially think that Rebbi Yishmael learns from "La'asos"?
(a) Finally however, we preclude a 'La'av she'Ein Bo Ma'aseh' from Malkos
from the same source as a 'La'av she'Nitak la'Asei'.
From where do we know
that a 'La'av she'Nitak la'Asei' does not receive Malkos? What is a 'La'av
(b) What else do we learn from 'La'av de'Chasimah'?
(c) Why do we learn specifically from that La'av more than from any other?
(a) What does Rebbi Akiva learn from the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei (in connection
with Malkos) "K'dei Rish'aso"?
(b) Why does Rebbi Yishmael disagree with that?
(c) In that case, we ask, why Rebbi Akiva does not also preclude Chayvei
Kareis from Malkos.
Why is the fact that they can do Teshuvah (which is
what he says) not a good enough answer?
(d) What is Rebbi Avahu referring to when he says that the Torah
specifically includes Chayvei Kareis in the Din of Malkos with the
Gezeirah-Shavah of "le'Einei" "le'Einecha"?
(e) Then why did Rebbi Akiva give the fact that one can do Teshuvah as the
reason, seeing as it is really a Gezeiras-ha'Kasuv'?
(a) How do we initially reject Rebbi Aba bar Mamal Kashya that, in that
case, why not also learn "me'Einei" (written by Misas Beis-Din of
Avodas-Kochavim) from "le'Einecha" (and include Misas Beis-Din in Malkos)?
(b) We overrule this Kashya however, with a statement of de'Bei Rebbi
What does Rebbi Yishmael say about learning a 'Gezeirah-Shavah'
"Shiyvah" from "Bi'ah"?
(c) What second objection do we raise to Rebbi Aba bar Mamal's Kashya, based
on the fact that we have just learned "le'Einei" from "le'Einecha" (K'risus
(d) Rebbi Shmuel bar Rav Yitzchak accepted Rebbi Aba bar Mamal's Kashya, and
gave an answer.
What else might 'Kiblah Mineih Rebbi Shmuel bar Rav
(a) In any event, to answer Rebbi Aba bar Mamal's Kashya, how do we qualify
the D'rashah 'Mishum Rish'ah Achas Atah Mechayvo, ve'I Atah Mechayvo Mishum
Sh'tei Rish'ayos'? In which case will the principle not apply?
(b) Rava disagrees with the previous interpretation of the Machlokes
Even Rebbi Yishmael agrees he says, that if they warned the
culprit that he will be killed, he will not receive Malkos.
Why is that?
(c) Then in which case do Rebbi Yishmael and Rebbi Akiva argue? What is the
basis of their Machlokes?
(d) In that case, why, according to Rebbi Akiva, are Chayvei Kareis subject
to Malkos? Why do we not say there too, that the Azharah is needed for
(a) What proof does Rav Mordechai bring, quoting Avimi me'Hagrunya in the
name of Rava, that Chayvei Kareis do not require an Azharah?
Answers to questions
(b) How do we contend that the La'av is needed for a Korban be'Shogeg (by
Chayvei Misas Beis-Din, and not for Malkos)?
(c) How do we refute this contention? What other reason might there be for
not bringing a Korban, for contravening the Mitzvah of Pesach or of Milah?
(d) Ravina reinstates our original interpretation of Rebbi Akiva, and he
takes his statement literally, 'she'Im Asu Teshuvah, Beis-Din shel Ma'alah M
ochlin Lahen'. How does he answer the Kashya that we asked earlier 'Ha Lo
