Pesachim 35


(a) With which five species of grain can one fulfill one's obligation of eating Matzah on Pesach?

(b) Why can a Yisrael not fulfill his obligation with Terumah and Chalah?

(c) May one fulfill one's obligation with bread of a Todah or wafers of a Nazir ...

  1. ... that have been declared Hekdesh?
  2. ... that have not been declared Hekdesh, but which one baked in order to bring with his own Todah?
  3. ... that have not been declared Hekdesh, and which one baked in order to sell to the public?
(a) What are the ramifications of the statement by the Tana in the Beraisa, which considers spelt a kind of wheat, and oats and rye a kind of barley?

(b) What does Tana de'Bei Rebbi Yishmael learn from the Hekesh in the Pasuk in Re'ei "Lo Sochal Alav Chametz, Shiv'as Yamim Tochal Alav Matzos"?

(c) Which species does this Hekesh preclude from the Mitzvah?

(d) Can we infer from here that a dough of rice and millet can never rise?

(a) Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri in a Beraisa forbids rice and millet, because it is close to becoming Chametz.
Is he referring to the Din of Chametz on Pesach or to that of a flour-offering, which is not allowed to become Chametz?

(b) Does Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri mean that it becomes real Chametz quickly, or that it is close to becoming Chametz, but not real Chametz?

(c) What are the two ramifications of this Sha'aleh?

(d) What Does Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri say about 'Kalnisa' (fennel flower, or the rye-grass that is found among the poppies)?

(a) Resh Lakish rules that one is not Chayav Kares for eating bread that was kneaded with wine, honey or oil on Pesach.
How does Rav Papa attempt to learn this from the Pasuk "Lo Sochal Alav Chametz, Shiv'as Yamim Tochal Alav Matzos"?

(b) How does Rav Huna Brei de'Rav Yehoshua prove him wrong from the Beraisa of 'Himcheihu, ve'Gam'o'? What does the Beraisa go on to say there?

(c) At that point, the senior Rav Idi bar Avin woke up and revealed Resh Lakish's real reason.
What was it?

Answers to questions



(a) Seeing as one may not eat Demai, how can the Tana of our Mishnah declare someone who used Demai for the Mitzvah, Yotze?

(b) In which case *will* one be Yotze the Mitzvah of Matzah with Ma'aser Rishon wheat from which Terumah Gedolah has not been separated, and in which case will one *not*?

(a) Is one Yotze with Matzah of Ma'aser Sheni or Hekdesh that was redeemed ...
  1. ... if a fraction of the principle is still outstanding?
  2. ... if it was only the fifth which the owner remains obligated to pay?
(b) Why does the Tana find it necessary to inform us that Kohanim *can* be Yotze with Matzah of Terumah or Chalah? Why might we have thought that they are *not* able to?

(c) From where do we learn that in fact, they can?
