Nazir 45


(a) Which three Korbanos does a Nazir Tahor bring?

(b) According to Rebbi Yehudah in our Mishnah, he shaves on the Shelamim. What is his source for this?

(c) What problem is there with this from the order of the Korbanos in the Torah.

(d) Rebbi Elazar disagrees.
On what grounds does he rule that the Nazir must shave on the Chatas?

(a) What does Raban Shimon ben Gamliel say about someone who brings the three required animals, but without having designated them?

(b) How will the animals then be distributed?

(a) The Torah writes "Pesach Ohel Mo'ed" in connection with the shaving, as we just explained.
How does the Tana of the Beraisa (who holds like Rebbi Yehudah in our Mishnah) learn from there that the Nazir shaves on the Shelamim?

(b) Why does he not take the Pasuk literally?

(c) How does the Tana support this from the Pasuk in Yisro "ve'Lo Sa'aleh be'Ma'alos al Mizbechi"?

(d) Rebbi Yitzchak disagrees with the need for a special D'rashah.
How does he learn the same thing from the Pasuk "ve'Lakach es Se'ar Rosh Nizro, ve'Nasan al ha'Eish"?

(a) Rebbi Chanan Amar Rebbi Eliezer also declined to explain "Pesach Ohel Mo'ed" literally (for the reason that we stated above).
How does *he* explain it?

(b) What does Rebbi Shimon Shezuri extrapolate from the Pasuk "ve'Gilach *ha'Nazir* Pesach Ohel Mo'ed"? What reason does he give for this D'rashah?

(c) Does this then mean that a Nezirah does not need to shave her hair?

(d) What did Rebbi Shimon Shezuri reply when they asked him from a Sotah, whom the Kohanim stood in the Azarah, yet the Torah is not afraid that they will sin with her?

Answers to questions



(a) What would the Nazir do with his hair after shaving it off?

(b) What does the Tana of our Mishnah mean when he writes 've'Im Gilach bi'Medinah, Lo Hayah Meshalei'ach Tachas ha'Dud'? Was he permitted to shave outside Yerushalayim?

(c) According to the Tana Kama, throwing the Nazir's hair under the pot containing the Shelamim was confined to a Nazir Tahor who shaved in Yerushalayim.
Why is that?

(d) According to Rebbi Meir, the hair of a Nazir Tamei, like that of a Nazir Tahor, was placed under the pot.
According to him, whereabouts did they place the hair of ...

  1. ... a Nazir Tahor?
  2. ... a Nazir Tamei?
(a) Rebbi Meir concedes that a Nazir Tamei outside the Beis Hamikdash did not throw his hair under the pot containing his Korban.
Why not? What did he do with it?

(b) According to Rebbi Yehudah in the previous Mishnah, the Nazir threw his hair underneath the pot containing the Shelamim.
Would he still fulfill the Mitzvah if he placed it underneath the pot containing the Chatas or the Asham?

(c) Since when does a Nazir bring an Asham?

(a) What does the Tana learn from the Pasuk "Asher Tachas *Zevach* ha'Shelamim"?

(b) What do we learn from the fact that the Torah writes ...

  1. ... "Zevach ha'Shelamim (rather than "Rotav ha'Shelamim")?
  2. ... "Zevach ha'Shelamim" (rather than "Zevach u'Shelamim")?
(a) We have already learned that according to Rebbi Meir, every Nazir had to throw his hair under the pot except for a Tamei Nazir who shaved outside Yerushalayim, whereas according to the Chachamim it is only a Tahor Nazir in Yerushalayim who did so. What does Rebbi Yehudah say?

(b) What is his reason?

(c) The owner would cook the Shelamim or make Shelikah.
What is 'Shelikah'?

(a) Besides the cooked right foreleg of the Shelamim (the ram), what else did the Kohen receive?

(b) What did he do with them before taking them for himself?

(c) The Nazir is then permitted to drink wine and to become Tamei Meis. Like which Tana in the forthcoming Sugya does our Mishnah appear to hold?

(d) Rebbi Shimon is more lenient than the Tana Kama.
What does he say?
