SUKA 36-56 (End of Maseches) have been dedicated by the wife and daughters of the late Dr. Simcha Bekelnitzky (Simcha Gedalya ben Shraga Feibush) of Queens N.Y. Well known in the community for his Chesed and Tzedakah, he will long be remembered.

1) [line 8] KIVU'A D'YARCHA - when the new month started
*2*) [line 14] BI'ZEMAN SHE'EIN BEIS HA'MIKDASH KAYAM - that is, even when the Beis ha'Mikdash no longer stood the Lulav was taken on Shabbos, if the first day of Yom Tov fell out on Shabbos. (We do not follow this practice today because the Gemara later, 44a, rejects this understanding of the Beraisa - TOSFOS DH Inhu)

5) [line 39] MILU'IM
(a) The first seven days of the Avodah in the Mishkan in the desert were called "Shiv'as Yemei ha'Milu'im." The word "Milu'im" means "filling," and refers to the fact that during these days the status of the Kohanim as Divine servants was "filled," coming to its completion (RASHI to Vayikra 8:22). These seven days started on the 23rd of Adar and lasted until Rosh Chodesh Nisan, which was the eighth day.
(b) During the Yemei ha'Milu'im, the Kohanim and all of the parts and the utensils of the Mishkan were smeared with Shemen ha'Mishchah (see Background to Shekalim 16:6). Many Korbanos, called Korbanos ha'Milu'im, were offered. Moshe Rabeinu officiated as the Kohen Gadol during these days, teaching the Avodah to Aharon and his sons. On each day, Moshe assembled and dissembled the Mishkan, until the eighth day, on which he left it standing. On that day, Aharon was officially appointed as the Kohen Gadol and the Shechinah descended to dwell permanently in the Mishkan (RASHI ibid. 9:23).


6) [line 9] LULAV LA'KOL MASUR - the Mitzvah of Lulav is done by all, including the unlearned

b) [line 18] ZEKIFAH - it was placed standing alongside the Mizbe'ach
11) [line 30] BAR ORYA - Torah scholar
12) [line 36] SHEVI'I SHEL ARAVAH - the seventh day of Sukos, Hoshana Rabah, on which the Aravah is taken even on Shabbos and on which the Mizbe'ach was circled seven times (see Background to Sukah 42:17)

13) [line 37] MARBIYOS - long branches of willows
