REVIEW QUESTIONS ON GEMARA AND RASHI
prepared by Rabbi Eliezer Chrysler
Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
Previous dafPesachim 58
(a) The Tamid was normally Shechted at eight and a half hours in the day.
When was it finally sacrificed on the Mizbei'ach? Why the delay?
(b) When was the Tamid Shechted and brought ...
- ... on a regular Erev Pesach?
- ... on Erev Pesach which fell on Friday?
(a) When does 'Bein ha'Arbayim' begin?
(b) What do we initially learn from the Torah's Lashon of "Bein ha'Arbayim"
(in connection with the Korban Tamid) rather than just 'ba'Erev'?
(c) On what grounds does Rava refute this Limud?
(a) How does Rava explain the timing of the Korban Tamid shel Bein
ha'Arbayim each day? Why was it delayed by two hours?
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Tzav "ve'Hiktir *Aleha* Chelvei
(c) Why did they delay the Shechitah of the Tamid on Shabbos, when there
were no Nedarim and Nedavos?
(d) On Erev Pesach which fell on Shabbos they brought the Tamid forward by
one hour in order to leave time to roast the Pesach before Shabbos.
could they not roast it on Shabbos?
(a) According to Abaye in Rebbi Akiva, when Erev Pesach falls on Shabbos,
the Pesach is Shechted at six and a half hours, the same as it is when it
falls on Erev Shabbos.
What does Rebbi Yishmael say?
(b) When was the Musaf brought? Why was it not brought in the morning?
(c) What were the Bazichin?
(d) How does the timing of the Bazichin serve as the basis of the Machlokes
between Rebbi Yishmael and Rebbi Akiva - according to Abaye?
(a) Why, according to Rebbi Yishmael (who currently holds that the Bazichin
are brought in seven hours) is the Tamid brought in seven and a half hours
(and not in eight)? And by the same token, according to Rebbi Akiva (who
holds that the Musafin is brought in six hours) why is the Tamid brought in
six and a half hours and not in seven?
(b) Why was a whole hour needed for the Bazichin?
(c) Rava refutes this explanation on the grounds that in it, Rebbi Akiva is
comparing Erev Pesach that falls on Shabbos to Erev Pesach that falls on
Friday, when that is not what he said.
What *did* Rebbi Akiva say?
(a) How does Rava subsequently learn the Machlokes between Rebbi Yishmael
and Rebbi Akiva?
Answers to questions
(b) Rebbi Akiva is not worried about the Pesach going bad if it is left too
long before being roasted.
Why then, does he say in *seven* and a half
hours, and not in *six* in a half (seeing as there are no Nedarim and
Nedavos to bring)?
(a) What problem does Rabah bar Ula have with Rava's explanation, on account
of the Lashon of Rebbi Yishmael 'ke'Siduro be'Chol, Kach Siduro be'Shabbos'?
(b) What is the Machlokes between Rebbi Yishmael and Rebbi Akiva, according
to him? What is the basis of their Machlokes?
(c) According to Abaye, the author of our Mishnah which does not
differentiate between a regular Erev Pesach and one that fell on Shabbos, is
Rebbi Yishmael; according to Rava, it is Rebbi Akiva. According to Rabah bar
Ula, the Mishnah can even go like both Tana'im.
Why is that?
(a) Why does the Beraisa, which quotes Rebbi Yishmael as saying 'Chal
Liheyos be'Shabbos, ke'Chal Liheyos be'Sheni be'Shabbos' present Rava with a
(b) How does Rava amend the Beraisa to dispense with the Kashya?
(c) And how does the Beraisa, which quotes Rebbi Yishmael as saying 'Chal
Liheyos be'Shabbos, ke'Sidro Kol ha'Shanah Kula' present Abaye with a
(d) How does Abaye amend the Beraisa to dispense with the problem?
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Tzav "ve'Arach Aleha *ha'Olah*", and
how is that derived from there?
Answers to questions
(b) And how do we learn from "ve'Hiktir *Aleha* Chelvei ha'Shelamim", that
no Korban may be brought after the Tamid shel Bein ha'Arbayim?
(c) What is wrong with the initial Derashah of '*Aleha* ha'Shelamim, ve'Lo
Al Chaveiro Shelamim"?
(d) Then how come that the *Korban Pesach* was brought after the Tamid shel
