Shabbos 138


(a) What is a Gud?

(b) What do the following have in common:

  1. A Gud, a strainer, a canopy and a portable chair? What is the reason for each one?
  2. A standing-bed, a folding-chair, a folding-chair with the hole in the middle for relieving oneself?
(c) For which sort of Ohel is one Chayav for putting up on Shabbos?
(a) Rav Kahana maintains that, according to the Chachamim, one is Chayav for straining wine from its dregs on Shabbos.
Based on Rebbi Eliezer's opinion, what problem does Rav Sheshes have with that?

(b) Rav Yosef attempts to refute Rav Sheshes' Kashya from Rebbi Eliezer, from Rebbi Eliezer (in 'Bameh Ishah'), who allows a woman to go out with a Jerusalem of gold. What is Rav Yosef's Kashya on Rav Sheshes?

(c) How does the Gemara refute Rav Yosef's Kashya?

(a) In spite of Rav Sheshes' Kashya, the Gemara appears to accept Rav Kahana's ruling, and Rabah subsequently holds that one is Chayav because of Borer.
How does he prove that?

(b) What does Rebbi Zeira hold, and what is his proof?

(c) What is the Machlokes between Rabah and Rebbi Zeira?

(a) What is a 'Talis Kefulah'?

(b) Is one Chayav for spreading it on Shabbos?

(c) When may one spread it?

(d) Rav issued three rulings: One may not even open a bed (and certainly not a canopy); Even a canopy is permitted (and certainly a bed); A canopy is forbidden, and a bed is permitted.

  1. When is even a bed forbidden?
  2. When is even a canopy permitted?
  3. When is a canopy forbidden, and a bed permitted?
(a) May one put up a curtain on Shabbos?

(b) What is the basic difference between a Chasan's canopy and other canopies?

(c) Under which four conditions may one set up a Chasan's canopy on Shabbos?

Answers to questions



(a) Rav Sheshes Brei de'Rav Idi initially forbids putting on on Shabbos, a hat whose brim protrudes a Tefach.
What objection does the Gemara raise to this?

(b) How does the Gemara finally explain Rav Sheshes Brei de'Rav Idi?

(a) Rav Huna quoting Rav, permits Gud be'Kisna on Shabbos.
How do we reconcile this with the Gemara above (on Amud Aleph), which forbade spreading a Gud on Shabbos?

(b) When is it forbidden to spread even a Gud be'Kisna?

(c) May two people spread a canopy?

(a) According to the Tana Kama of the Beraisa, what is the difference between a metal oven with one leg broken off and one with two legs broken off?

(b) Rav disagrees.
What does Rav say?

(c) How does Rav, using the Pasuk in Yeshayah "Lachen, Hineni Yosif Lehafli es ha'Am ha'Zeh Haflei va'Fele ... ve'Avdah Chochmas Chachamav", explain the Pasuk in Ki Savo "ve'Hifla Hashem es Makoscha"? What does the latter Pasuk mean?

(a) How did the Rabbanan of Kerem be'Yavneh know that there would come a time when Torah would be forgotten?

(b) Which three things are included in the Pasuk in Amos "Levakesh es *D'var Hashem*"?

(c) Why is it obvious that the Halachah that they will seek in vain, is not whether 'the Terumah loaf is Tahor or Tamei'?

(a) Based on the above Pasuk in Amos "Yeshotetu Levakesh es D'var Hashem , ve'Lo Yimtze'u", what will be the Safek regarding the loaf, which nobody will be able to resolve?

(b) In fact, the bread is a Sheni le'Tum'ah, and not a Rishon.
How do we know that?

(c) Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai disagrees. He quotes a Pasuk in Vayelech "Ki Lo Sishachach mi'Pi Zar'o", from which we see that Torah will never be forgotten. How then, does he interpret the Pasuk "Yeshotetu ... ve'Lo Yimtze'u"?
