Nazir 27


(a) What does Raban Shimon ben Gamliel in a Mishnah in 'Sheloshah Minim' say about a Nazir who brought a she-lamb, a lamb and a ram, without specifying which animal was to go for which Korban?

(b) How did Rav Papa respond to Rav Shimi bar Ashi's Kashya using this Mishnah? Why is this Mishnah a Kashya on him?

(c) And on what grounds does he now put on a par three animals which are fit to bring for that particular Korban and three bulls, which are not (as we explained above)?

(d) Besides the fact that the Lashon does not imply it, how do we know that Raban Shimon ben Gamliel is not speaking when the owner later designated each of the animals for its specific task?

(a) Rav Papa queries Rav Shimi bar Ashi, in spite of the fact that Rav Chisda obviously considers the birds to be S'tumin, and the same will apply to animals? Is it because he considers Rav Chisda's opinion a joke?

(b) Then what is Rav Papa's reason?

(c) What did Rav Shimi bar Ashi answer him, based on "ve'Lakach, ve'Asah"?

(d) And how does he then explain Raban Shimon ben Gamliel? Why are the animals not considered S'tumin (like the three bulls are, as we discussed above)?

Answers to questions



(a) The Beraisa discusses the Dinim of a son who is a Nazir bringing the money or the Korbanos of his deceased father on his own behalf.
May a son bring the Korban from the money that his father's designated before he died in a case ...
  1. ... where he, like his father, ate Cheilev?
  2. ... where he like his father, was a Nazir (and the money was S'tumin)?
(b) What will happen to the money in the same case, if the son was a Nazir already during his father's lifetime?

(c) What is the source of these Halachos of Nazir?

(d) If the father left Beheimos Mefurashos, what happens to ...

  1. ... the Chatas?
  2. ... the Olah?
  3. ... the Shelamim?
(a) What does Rav Hamnuna mean when he asks (with reference to the previous case) 'Mai La'av Afilu Ba'alas Mum'? What case is he referring to?

(b) Rav Hamnuna is asking a Kashya on Rav Nachman, who learned earlier that blemished animals have the Din of S'tumos (even if they are Mefurashin). How do we answer his Kashya?

(c) In that case, how do we explain the Reisha of the Beraisa, which speaks about the father leaving over Ma'os S'tumos?
Why does the Tana not rather speak about blemished animals?

(d) Why did we ask this Kashya on the Beraisa, and not on our Mishnah, where the Tana said 'Ma'os S'tumin Yiplu li'Nedavah'?

(a) What do we Darshen from the Pasuk in Vayikra "Asher Nasi Yecheta ... ve'Heivi es *Korbano*"?

(b) What problem do we have with the entire D'rashah, bearing in mind the case?

(c) We try to distinguish between a case of min ha'Kalah al ha'Chamurah or vice-versa and min ha'Kalah al ha'Kalah or min ha'Chamurah al ha'Chamurah. What is meant by ...

  1. ... Kalah?
  2. ... Chamurah?
(d) What do we learn from the second "Korbano" (mentioned in connection with a Chatas Kisbah)?
(a) Why might we have thought that, even though a son cannot be Yotze with his father's *Korbanos* (after his death), he might nevertheless be Yotze with the money that he left for his Korbanos?

(b) Does it matter that we are speaking about the Ma'os *Mefurashin* of his father, whereas the Halachah is confined to Ma'os S'tumin?

(c) What do we now learn from the third "Korbano" (written by a Chatas Se'irah)?

(d) Having learned from all three "Korbano", how can the Beraisa make any further D'rashos from the same word, seeing as the word "Korbano" only appears in the Torah three times?
