Shabbos 8

***************GIRSA SECTION********************
We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, Rav B. Rensburg and the parenthetical marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section is devoted to any *OTHER* changes that we feel ought to be made in Gemara, Rashi or Tosfos.)

[1] Gemara 8a [line 1]:
"bi'Reshus ha'Yachid d'Chulei Alma Lo Peligei ked'Rav Chisda, Ela"
Rashi is not Gores these words. It seems that Tosfos DH Amar Abaye and
Tosfos 4b DH b'Ilan also did not have them in the text of his Gemara.

1) [line 4] SHADI NOFO BASAR IKARO - the branch is considered to be four by four Tefachim since it is attached to the trunk (lit. throw the branch after the trunk)

2) [line 5] KAVERES - a beehive (which is cylindrical)
3) [line 8] KEROMIYOS SHEL KANAH - the skin-like, scaly envelope of reed (that juts out of the top of the cylinder)

4) [line 11] MECHITZOS L'SOCHAN ASUYOS - the walls of the beehive are made to hold their contents

5) [line 19] TASHMISH AL YEDEI HA'DECHAK - when one is forced to use something because he has no other choice


6) [line 1] LISHBOS
A person is only allowed to travel a distance of 2000 Amos from his city or dwelling place (if he is not in a city) on Shabbos. If he wants to travel more than 2000 Amos, he must make an Eruv Techumin. This is done by placing enough of one food that would be used for two meals near the end of his 2000 Amos, in the direction in which he wishes to travel. The location where his food is placed is considered his new dwelling for that Shabbos, and he may travel 2000 Amos in any direction from there.

7) [line 4] D'DALA'I V'OSVEI - he placed it higher than ten Tefachim from the bottom of the pit

8) [line 5] D'TATA'I V'OSVEI - he placed it within the bottom ten Tefachim of the pit

9) [line 13] KOL DAVER SHE'HU MISHUM SHEVUS - anything which is forbidden because of a decree of the Chachamim

10) [line 16] REKAK MAYIM - a puddle or pool of water
11) [line 22] LIKRURI NAFSHAIHU - to cool themselves off
12) [line 24] AGAV D'MATNIF MIKRI V'NACHIS - since they get dirty, it happens that they go into the water to clean themselves off

13) [line 28] ZIRZA D'KANEI - a bundle of long, stiff reeds
14) [line 28] RAMA V'ZAKFEI - if he threw it down and stood it up over and over (thereby moving it in Reshus ha'Rabim)

15) [last line] SHE'HE'EVIRO DERECH ALAV - (a) he passed it *over* himself, above ten Tefachim from the ground of Reshus ha'Rabim, which is a Mekom Petur (RASHI);
(b) he passed it *in front of* himself, from his right hand to his left. It is possible to say that at the point that he is holding the object in front of himself, it is considered at rest, since most objects are held in this fashion.
