THOUGHTS ON THE DAILY DAF
brought to you by Kollel Iyun Hadaf of Har Nof
Rosh Kollel: Rav Mordecai Kornfeld
Ask A Question about the Daf
QUESTION: The Gemara includes "ha'Lan" in its list of invalid Korbanos.
RASHI (DH ha'Lan) explains that this expression refers to *blood* which was
not applied to the Mizbe'ach before sunset.
(a) How did Rashi know that the Beraisa is discussing exclusively *blood*
which was not applied to the Mizbe'ach before nightfall, and not parts of
the Korban itself which were not offered on the Mizbe'ach until after
(b) In fact, Rashi himself in Zevachim (27b), when explaining the same
Beraisa, explains that "ha'Lan" means parts of the Korban itself which were
not offered on the Mizbe'ach until after nightfall. Why, then, did he
explain differently here?
(a) TOSFOS (DH ha'Lan) points out that our Beraisa also mentions Nosar
among the invalid Korbanos. Tosfos explains that Nosar, cannot mean the
usual "*meat* from a Korban which was not eaten until after its proper
time," since the Beraisa rules that Nosar is left on the Mizbe'ach if
brought there by accident, and that is not the case with the parts of a
Korban that are supposed to be *eaten*. Nosar, then, must be referring to
the *fats* of the Korban which were not offered on the Mizbe'ach until
after nightfall. If so, "ha'Lan" must be referring to something else. It
must mean the *blood*, and not the *fats* of the animal, which was not
offered until after nightfall.
(b) As for Rashi in Zevachim, when the Gemara in Zevachim quotes our
Beraisa, it omits one word: "Nosar." Thus, Rashi there is justified in
explaining the word "ha'Lan" in that Beraisa as referring to the fats of
the Korban which were not offered on the Mizbe'ach until after nightfall.
