to Erev Pesach), like Rebbi Yossi.
What does Rebbi Yossi say?
(c) Why should Erev Pesach be different?
(d) How does Mar Zutra reconcile Rebbi Yehudah (who just forbade in a
Beraisa, eating on Erev Shabbos and Yom-Tov only from Minchah Ketanah - i.e.
from *nine and a half hours*) with another Beraisa, where he forbids it
already half an hour earlier - from the *beginning* of the tenth hour?
