Pesachim 46


(a) Our Mishnah, after making the distinction between less than a k'Beitzah and more than a k'Beitzah (regarding dough in a dish on Pesach), continues 've'Chein le'Inyan Tum'ah' ... .
What is the problem with this statement?

(b) Rav Yehudah amends it to 'Aval le'Inyan Tum'ah Eino Chein'.
On what grounds does Abaye refute this amendment?

(c) How does Abaye then amend it?

(d) What is the case, and why is that?

(a) On what grounds does Rava refute Abaye's amendment?

(b) So Rava amends the Mishnah to read 've'Chein Leha'alos Taharah la'Arivah'.
What does that mean?

(c) But Rav Papa objects.
What is Rav Papa's objection?

(d) He finally amends the Mishnah to read 've'Chein le'Inyan Lehorid Tum'ah la'Arivah'.
What does this mean?

(a) What is a Batzek ha'Cheresh and why is it called by that name?

(b) What is the meaning of 'Batzek ha'Cheres'?

(c) How does one gauge whether it is Chametz or not?

(a) If there is no other dough with which to compare the silent dough, Resh Lakish gives the Shiur, to gauge whether it has become Chametz or not, as 'the time it takes to go from Migdal Nuni'ah to Teverya - one Mil'.
Why did he not say simply 'a Mil'?

(b) Rebbi Avahu quoting Resh Lakish, says Legabel, li'Tefilah, ve'li'Netilas Yadayim Arba'ah Milin'.
What does each of these mean?

(c) Others add a fourth item to the list.
What is it?

(d) What distinction does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Chanina draw between searching for water or for a Shul in the direction that one is traveling, and searching for him in another direction?

(a) What problem does the Tana have with separating Chalah from a Tamei dough on Pesach? Why can one not separate it and ...
  1. ... bake it?
  2. ... leave it until night-fall and burn it then?
  3. ... burn it or feed it to one's dog?
(b) 'Rebbi Eliezer Omer, Lo Tikra Lah Shem Ad she'Te'afeh'.
What does one do with it, according to Rebbi Yehudah ben Beseirah?

(c) What does Rebbi Yehoshua say?

Answers to questions



(a) The Gemara initially suggests that Rebbi Eliezer and Rebbi Yehoshua argue over Tovas Hana'ah. What does Rebbi Eliezer hold, and how will that explain his opinion?

(b) How can we explain Rebbi Eliezer, even if he holds 'Tovas Hana'ah Einah Mamon'?

(c) Since Rebbi Eliezer holds of 'Ho'il', why should they not declare the Chalah first, and bake the doughs afterwards (which will be permitted because of 'Ho'il')?

(d) But how, in the first place, is one permitted to bake many doughs without having separated Chalah?

7) What is Rebbi Yehoshua's reason? Why is it preferable, according to him, to leave it than to bake it?


(a) If someone bakes on Yom-Tov for after Yom-Tov, he is Chayav Malkos according to Rav Chisda, but not according to Rabah.
Why not?

(b) The Machlokes only applies when the person who is cooking has already eaten his Yom-Tov meal.
Why is that?

(c) What does Rabah ask Rav Chisda from Eruvei Tavshilin?

(d) What is does Rav Chisda's ultimate reply?

(a) What Kashya does Rabah ask Rav Chisda from the Beraisa of 'Beheimah ha'Mesukenes'?

(b) Rav Chisda explains that Chazal permitted the Shechitah because of the great loss involved.
How can they permit an Isur d'Oraysa due to monetary considerations?
