Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
1) The Gemara asks what the Din will be if a Zavah examined herself on the first and the eighth days, according to Rebbi Eliezer, and found that she was Tehorah.
(a) What are the two sides of the Sha'aleh?It is obvious that, according to Rebbi Akiva, she has only the eighth day (the first of her seven clean days).
(b) What will be the Din according to Rebbi Yehoshua, and why?Rebbi Chanina rules that, even in the opinion of Rebbi Eliezer, she only has the eighth day.
(c) What does Rav say, and what does the Gemara ask on him from the following Beraisa? '*ve'Shavin* be'Zav u've'Zavah ... she'Ein Lahem Ela Shemini Bilevad'?2) Rav is quoted as saying, that a Nidah who made Hefresh be'Taharah on the third day, may count it in her seven clean days.
(a) Which textual change is essential in this statement, and why?3)
(a) What does the Gemara ask on Rav (who does not require the acyual days to have been counted) from the Sugya above (Daf 29b), from the case of a woman who left pregnant and returned empty, and whom we do not make Tovel on the *days* of the first week, in case she gave birth be'Zov, and is now terminating her Zivus?4) If a woman arrives from out of town and claims that she saw blood once, but does not know whether that was in the days of Nidus or of Zivus, we make her Tovel nine Tevilos (according to those who hold that it is a Mitzvah to Tovel as soon as the Tevilah falls due).
(a) At which time of day did she arrive, and why *nine* Tevilos?If she claims to have seen Bein ha'Shemashos, she must Tovel eleven times.
(c) Why the extra two Tevilos?5) If she claimed not to have seen at all, she Tovels fifteen times, the Beraisa continues. Rava compares this senseless Din to the laws of Galchi.
(a) What is an example of the laws of Galchi?
(a) In the last case, why must the woman Tovel fifteen times?7)
(a) What is the Gemara attempting to prove from the above-mentioned Beraisa?8)
(a) Which five Tamei people are Metamei be'Masa even after they have died?9) According to Beis Shamai, we consider every woman who dies to be a Nidah.
(a) What are the ramifications of this Halachah?Even Mesama is derived from a Pasuk in Daniel "ve'Heisis Even Chada, ve'Sam Al Pi Guva".
(c) Why is it called 'Even Mesama'.10) The Alexandrians asked Rabbi Yehoshua three Sha'alos to do with Chochmah. The first of these is included in our Mishnah: 'Until when is a dead Zav Metamei'?
The second concerns a divorced woman whose ex-husband re-marries her after she had been married to someone else: whether her daughter is permitted to a Kohen or not.
(a) What are the two sides to the Sha'aleh?
