Rosh Hashanah 34

ROSH HASHANAH 31-35 (Siyum!) - sponsored by a generous grant from an anonymous donor. Kollel Iyun Hadaf is indebted to him for his encouragement and support and prays that Hashem will repay him in kind.

1) [line 17] TEKI'AH U'TERU'AH ACHAS HI - (a) Teki'ah and Teru'ah mean the same; i.e. the Pasuk that says "u'Tekatem" means "You shall blast a Teru'ah" (RASHI); (b) the Teki'ah and Teru'ah are part of one Mitzvah (and they must be blown with one breath, without any break between them) (RAMBAN in Drasha)

2) [line 35] L'SALMUDO HU VA - for its teaching; i.e. for a Gezerah Shavah (according to the one who learns it from the blasts in the Midbar)

3) [line 40] DERECH HA'AVARASO - [the Shofar must be blown] in the way that it grows out of the ram's head; i.e. with one's mouth on the narrow end. (Just as the narrow end is on the ram's head as it grows, so too the mouth of the person blowing must be on the narrow end.) (RASHI 27b)

4) [line 44] SHE'HA'CHODESH MISKASEH VO - [the time] in which the moon is covered [and cannot be seen] (as stated in the Gemara above, 20b, that the new moon is hidden from view for 24 hours at the time of the Molad)

7) [line 4] B'SEIRUGIN - in intervals, with interruptions
8) [line 11] MAVO'OS METUNAFOS - streets or alleys that are dirty [with filth and excrement in them]
