Mordechai Rabin of Har Nof.
(a) According to Rav, those who heard Kidush in Shul do not need to hear it
again at home.
But is one not supposed to hear Kidush in the place where
(b) What does Rav mean when he says 'Yedei Yayin Lo Yatza'?
(c) What is the difference between this case and someone who makes Kidush at
home and wishes to drink another cup of wine during the meal?
(a) According to Rav, why does one recite Kidush again *at home*?
(b) According to Shmuel, why does one recite Kidush *in Shul*?
(a) What did Rav Huna do one Friday night when the light went out after he
had made Kidush but before he had begun eating?
(b) Why did Rabah instruct Abaye to wash and eat bread (see Tosfos) when he
made Kidush, even though it had not been Abaye's intention to do so?
(c) What does the Gemara prove from the two above episodes?
(d) Can someone who does *not* intend to eat where he is reciting Kidush,
make Kidush for someone who *does*?
(a) But how can Rabah possibly hold like Shmuel, when Abaye specifically
taught that, with the exception of three cases, Rabah always ruled like Rav?
There are three exceptions where Rabah follows the opinion of Shmuel
concerning Tzitzis, Chanukah and Shabbos.
(b) Why does this not clash with the principle that (before the decision to

What does the Beraisa say?
(a) What does Rav Huna say about changing one's location from one part of
the room to another? Does it require a fresh Berachah?
(b) What does the Gemara ask on Rav Huna from a Beraisa?
(c) What does it answer?
(d) On what grounds does the Rashbam dismiss the Kashya as an error?
(a) Rav Chisda restricts the Din of Shinuy Makom to things that do not
require a Berachah Acharonah in their place.
What is the definition of
'something that requires a Berachah Acharonah in its place'?
(b) What Halachah emerges from Rav Chisda's distinction, and what is the
reason for it?
(c) According to this, when the Gemara asked earlier (at the end of the
previous Amud) on Rebbi Yochanan, why did it not answer that the Beraisa
speaks about things that do *not* require a Berachah in that place, whereas
Rebbi Yochanan speaks about things that *do*?
(d) What does Rav Sheshes say regarding this matter?
(a) The Beraisa speaks of a group who sat down together to drink, and who
broke up ('Akru Ragleihem') to go and greet a Chasan and Kalah. How do we
know that it was *wine* that they were drinking?
According to Rav Chisda, is there any difference (with regard to things that
require a Berachah Acharonah in their place) between whether one continues
eating in a new location, or he returns to his original one? Do either of
these require a fresh Berachah?
(b) How does the Beraisa conclude?
(c) Why is this a Kashya on Rav Chisda?
(d) What does the Gemara answer?
