Sukah 49

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 1] KEVESH - a ramp
2) [line 1] KEREN - four raised corners which are one cubic Amah each
3) [line 2] YESOD - a foundation that extends outwards one Amah from the Mizbe'ach
4) [line 2] V'LO RIBU'A - and that is not square
5) [line 3] SOVEV - a platform that encircles the Mizbe'ach six Amos above the ground and that is one Amah wide

6) [line 4] SHISIN - a hollow located in the stone foundation under the Mizbe'ach

7) [line 5] "...CHAMUKEI YERECHAYICH KEMO CHALA'IM MA'ASEH YEDEI AMAN" - "... the roundness of your flanks are like jewels, the work of a master's hand." (Shir ha'Shirim 7:3) - The Gemara interprets this verse to mean, "...the rounded pipes for your libations' abyss-like trenches, handiwork of the Master Craftsman."

8) [line 7] SHE'MECHULALIN V'YORDIN AD HA'TEHOM - they are hollow all the way down to the depths of the earth

9) [line 10] BARA SHIS - He created the Shisin
10) [line 11] "ASHIRAH NA L'YDIDI..." - "I will now sing on behalf of my Beloved, my Beloved's song concerning His vineyard: My Beloved had a vineyard in a fertile corner. He fenced it around and cleared it of stones; He planted it with choice shoots and built a tower inside it; He even hewed a wine pit in it..." (Yeshayahu 5:1-2)

15) [line 17] LUL KATAN - a small shaft

19) [line 20] IGULEI DEVEILAH - rounded cakes of pressed figs


*20*) [line 1] K'SHEM SHE'NISUCHO BI'KEDUSHAH - the Gemara first proves from "ba'Kodesh Hasech" that whatever the word "Kodesh" refers to must be done in the Azarah, because it is compared to Nisuch. Later, the Gemara proves from a verse discussing Nosar that the word "Kodesh" refers to *burning*.

13) [line 8] (BED'IKLAT) [D'I KALAT] - if he collected the wine as it was falling

Generally, after the completion of a Mitzvah that is performed with a particular object, it becomes permitted to derive benefit from the object (if it was previously forbidden).

15) [line 13] MI'GERONEI SAVA - he becomes satiated by swallowing large gulps that fill his throat

16) [line 14] LIGMA GEMU'EI - he should swallow large gulps of wine
*17*) [line 15] MAI DI'CHSIV "MAH YAFU FE'AMAYICH..." - (the Gemara mentions this Drush here because it is based on the beginning of the verse that was discussed on Amud Alef, "Chamukei Yerechayich...," and because it is related to Aliyah l'Regel, a Mitzvah that applies to Sukos)

18) [line 15] "MAH YAFU FE'AMAYICH BA'NE'ALIM, BAS NADIV..." - "How lovely are your footsteps in sandals, O daughter of nobility..." (Shir ha'Shirim 7:3) - The Gemara interprets this verse to mean, "Your footsteps were so lovely when shod in the sandals of those who travel up to the Beis ha'Mikdash, you, the daughter of Avraham..."

A Keli Shares makes holy anything that enters it (Shemos 30:29). TOSFOS Pesachim 63b DH Midi points out that this applies only when the utensil is in the Azarah.
