Shabbos 63


(a) According to the Chachamim, a man who goes out into the street wearing weapons on Shabbos, is Chayav Chatas.
What does Rebbi Eliezer say about this, and what is his reasoning?

(b) What is the Chachamim's counter-argument, and why does Rebbi Eliezer disagree with them? What does Abaye mean when he compares Rebbi's reasoning to a 'Sheraga be'Tihara'?

(c) How does Shmuel, who says 'Ein Bein Olam ha'Zeh li'Yemos ha'Mashi'ach Ela Shibud Galiyos Bilevad', disagree with Abaye?

(d) Rebbi Chiya bar Aba disagrees with Shmuel.
Why does *he* say?

(a) In the second Lashon, Shmuel conforms with Rebbi Eliezer, and Rebbi Chiya bar Aba does not.
What did Rebbi Eliezer reply to the Chachamim in the second Lashon?

(b) What has the Pasuk in Tehilim "Chagor Charbecha al Yarech, Gibor, Hodcha va'Hadarecha!" got to do with this?

(c) How do the Chachamim interpret this Pasuk, and does Rebbi Eliezer agree with their Derashah?

(d) How do we learn from Rav Kahana that 'Ligmar Einash ve'Hadar Lisbar'?

(a) What does 'Shnei Talmidei Chachamim ha'Mechadedim Zeh la'Zeh ba'Halachah' mean?

(b) What reward will they receive, and what are the conditions?

(c) According to one opinion, they will subsequently merit Torah. According to Rav Nachman bar Yitzchak, they will merit the things that were said 'bi'Yeminah shel Torah'.
What are they?

(d) What is the reward for someone who learns Torah 'she'Lo li'Shemah'? (e) What else, besides 'li'Shemah and she'Lo li'Shemah, might "bi'Yeminah u'vi'Semolah" mean?

(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Mal'achi
1. ... "Az *Nidberu* Yir'ei Hashem Ish el Re'eihu, va'Yakshev Hashem va'Yishma"? What are the two meanings of "Nidberu"?
2. ... "u'le'Choshvei Shemo"?
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Koheles ...
1. ..."Shomer Mitzvah Lo Yeida Davar Ra"?
2. ... "ba'Asher Diber Melech Shilton, u'Mi Yomar lo mah Ta'aseh" ... (which comes immediately before it)?
(c) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Shir ha'Shirim ...
1. ... "ha'Yosheves ba'Ganim, Chaverim Makshivim, le'Kolcha Hashmi'ini"?
2. ... "Berach Dodi, u'Demei etc."?
(d) What do we learn from the Pasuk "ve'Diglu Alai Ahavah" - and what are the two conditions attached?
(a) Rebbi Aba, who is the author of the previous two statements, also said 'Gadol ha'Malveh Yoser min ha'Oseh Tzedakah'.
Why is this?

(b) Which Mitzvah is even greater than lending a poor man?

(c) Which is preferable: a pious, unlearned Jew, or a Talmid-Chacham who 'takes revenge like a snake', and why is that?

Answers to questions

1. ... "Lamas me'Re'eihu Chased"?
2. ... "ve'Yir'as Shakai Ta'azov"?
(b) How did the man attempt to pacify that woman who came to bake by him, after his dog had barked at her?

(c) What was the woman's reply?

7) What are the two ways of explaining the Pasuk in Koheles "Semach Bachur be'Yaldusecha ..... ve'Da Ki al Kol Eleh Yeviacha Hashem ba'Mishpat"?


(a) 'Biris Tehorah, ve'Yotzin Bah be'Shabbos' - Mishnah).
What is the equivalent Din by Kevalim?

(b) Why can 'Biris' not mean a bracelet?

(c) Ravin maintained that a Biris was worn on one calf; and Kevalim, on two.
How does that explain the Halachic differences between them (see Tosfos DH 'Biris')?

(a) Rav Huna disagrees with Ravin. According to him, both Biris and Kevalim were worn on both legs.
Then what is the difference between them?

(b) Why then are their Dinim different?

(c) What gives Kevalim the Din of Tashmish Adam?

(a) How were the words 'Kodesh la'Hashem' engraved on the Tzitz (Machlokes Tana'im)?

(b) Why can we not learn from the Tzitz, that whatever is woven, is Tamei, however small it is (since the Tzitz was less than three by three Tefachim)?

(c) Then what *do* we learn from the Tzitz?

(a) What do we learn from "O Beged" - written in Vayikra, in connection with Tum'as Sheretz?

(b) What do we learn from "Kol K'li Ma'aseh" - written in Bamidbar, in connection with Tum'as Mes?

(c) How do we apply this latter Din to Tum'as Sheretz, since Tum'as Mes is more stringent than Tum'as Sheretz?
