over-ride Shabbos, and not just the Mitzvah of Lulav itself?
(c) What do the Rabbanan learn from "ba'Yom"?
(d) Rebbi Eliezer learns *that* from "u'Semachtem Lifnei Hashem Elokeichem

"Chamishah-Asar") from Sucah.
Why can he not learn the other cases from
Matzah with a 'Mah Matzinu'?

Lachem" (Pinchas). What do the Rabbanan learn from there?
(b) From where does Rebbi Eliezer learn that the Shofar must be blown by
day and not by night?
(c) Why can he not learn that the Machshirin of the other Mitzvos over-ride
Shabbos, from the Shofar of Rosh ha'Shanah or of Yovel?
