Shabbos 76


(a) The minimum Shiur of straw that one will need to carry out on Shabbos, to be Chayav, is enough to fill the mouth of a cow; straw of legumes, to fill the mouth of a camel; of stubble, enough to fill a lamb's mouth, and grass, to fill the mouth of a kid-goat.
Why is the Shiur for straw a cow's mouthful and not a camel's - which is larger? And by the same token, why is the Shiur for stubble a lamb's mouthful, and not that of a kid, which is smaller?

(b) Why did they determine the Shiur of straw of legumes to be the mouthful of a camel, and not that of the smaller mouthful of a cow?

(c) Grass, on the other hand, is fit for a lamb no less than for a kid. Why then, did Chazal fix the smaller Shiur of a kid's mouthful, and not a lamb's?

(a) The Shiur for carrying out fresh Garlic and onion leaves is a Kigerogeres, and of dry ones, enough to fill a kid-goat's mouth.
Why is that?

(b) Will someone who carries out one half-Shiur of one kind and one half-Shiur of another, be Chayav as if he had carried out a full Shiur?

(a) The Gemara initially thought that after arguing with Resh Lakish, Rebbi Yochanan retracted, conceding that if someone carries out a cow's mouthful of straw, to feed a camel, he will be Patur.
Why does the Gemara reject this?

(b) The Gemara ultimately decides that in the previous case, even Resh Lakish will agree that he is Chayav.
In which point then, is their dispute, and what are their respective reasons?

(c) How can we reconcile our Mishnah, which gives the Shiur for stubble as enough to fill the mouth of a lamb, with the Beraisa, which gives the Shiur of a Kigerogeres?

(a) Our Mishnah states that the different kinds to not combine - that one is not Chayav for carrying a half-Shiur of one together with a half-Shiur of the other.
Is this statement absolute?

(b) 'ha'Beged Sheloshah Al Sheloshah'.
What does this Mishnah in Kelim mean?

(c) What is the minimum Shiur Tum'ah for sack-cloth, for hide and for a reed-mat respectively? (Note: the Shiurim for the latter two are the same regarding Tum'as Maga and Tum'as Medras.)

(d) Do the Shiurim combine to receive Tum'ah?

(a) What does the Gemara now ask from the above Mishnah in Kelim on our Gemara, which maintains that the Shiurim combine to make up the stricter Shiur?

(b) How does the Gemara resolve this difficulty?

(a) Why is it that, although the husks and the bran do combine to make up the Shiur Chalah, they do not combine to make up the Shiur to be Chayav for carrying on Shabbos?
