ROSH HASHANAH 2-10 have been sponsored by a generous grant from the Darchey
(a) From where do we know that Pesach requires Linah?
(b) What exactly, does the Mitzvah of 'Linah' on Pesach comprise?
(a) We ask from where the Tana Kama and Rebbi Shimon (who learn 'Bal
Te'achar' from "be'Chag ha'Matzos, u've'Chag ha'Shavu'os u've'Chag
ha'Sukos") will learn Tashlumin by Shavu'os.
Why do we not ask the same
question on Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon, who learns 'Bal Te'achar' from
(b) The Tana Kama and Rebbi Shimon in fact, learn Tashlumin from Rosh
How do they do this?
(c) How do we know to reckon one *week* in which to bring the Korbanos of
Shavu'os, on account of the seven *weeks* of the Omer, and not just the one
*day*, on account of the forty-nine *days*?
(a) What problem do we have with the fact that the Tana lists Pesach among
the Korbanos that are included in Bal Te'acher?
Answers to questions
(b) Rav Chisda answers that the Tana includes Pesach only by the way, but
not because it belongs there.
How does Rav Sheshes interpret 'Pesach' to
answer the Kashya?
(c) If Pesach means 'Shalmei Pesach', why does the Tana find it necessary to
mention them specifically, considering he has already included Shelamim in
(a) The Beraisa learns Bal Te'acher in all the cases mentioned in the
Beraisa on 4a. from the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei (which is the source for Bal
Te'acher. Although the Torah only writes "Neder", we nevertheless include
Nedavah from a 'Gezeirah-Shavah' "Neder" "Neder" from the Dinim of Korbanos
What is the factual difference between Neder and Nedavah?
(b) What is the Halachic difference between them?
(c) From "la'Hashem Elokecha" we learn Damim, Erchin, Charamim and
What do all of these have in common?
(d) What do we learn from the Pasuk "Lo Se'acher Le'shal*mo*"?
(a) From "Darosh Yidreshenu" we learn four Korbanos, which include Chata'os
What are the other two?
(b) Why do we need to learn Olos and Shelamim, seeing as we have already
learned Nedarim and Nedavos earlier?
(c) What do we include in the La'av of 'Bal Te'acher' from "Hashem Elokecha"
(d) What three things do we include in 'Bal Te'acher' from "me'Imach"? How
are pecifically these three implied?
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk "ve'Hayah *Becha Chet*"?
(b) When the Tana says "Hu" 've'Lo Chilufav', why can he not be referring to
(c) We then suggest that maybe he is referring to Chilufei Todah.
- ... Chilufei Olah or Shelamim?
- ... Chilufei Chatas?
the difference between a Todah and its Chalipin?
(d) What would one do in the case of Chalipei Todah, if both animals were
(a) Why can "Hu" 've'Lo Chalipav' not refer to the previous case, but when
one of the animals died?
(b) Rav Sheshes finally establishes "Hu" 've'Lo Chalipav' by a Chalipei Olah
How does he dispense with the Kashya 'Peshita?' that we
(c) How will he then establish the case according to Rebbi Meir, in whose
opinion one transgresses Bal Te'acher already after *one* Yom-Tov?
(a) The Torah writes in connection with Bechor Beheimah "Shanah be'Shanah".
Why would we have thought that the Bechor even becomes *Pasul* after the
first year has expired?
(b) We learn from the fact that the Torah compares it to Ma'aser (Dagan)
which does *not* become Pasul.
From where do we know that (in spite of the
Pasuk "Shanah Shanah") Ma'aser Dagan does not become Pasul after its first
(c) What does Acheirim (in a Beraisa) learn from the Torah's Hekesh of
Bechor to Ma'aser (in the Pasuk in Re'ei "ve'Achalta Lifnei Hashem Elokecha
(d) Why do we now need the Derashah of "ve'Hayah Becha Chet" 've'Lo
be'Korbancha Chet', to teach us that a Korban does not become Pasul on
account of 'Bal Te'acher'? Why can we not learn this from Bechor?
(a) What does Ben Azai learn from the Pasuk in Tzav (regarding the P'sul of
Pigul) "ha'Makriv *Oso* Lo Yechashev"?
Answers to questions
(b) So we amend the Beraisa to read "Be'cha Chet" 've'Lo be'Ishtecha Chet'.
On what basis would we have otherwise thought that a man's wife would die
because *he* trangressed 'Bal Te'achar'?
