Yoma 18

The numbers that appear next to certain entries represent the number assigned to those items in the diagram of the Beis ha'Mikdash of the Tiferes Yisrael (e.g. TY #43). This diagram, which will be included in a separate mailing and can be found on our site, is printed both in the Tiferes Yisrael Mishnayos (in Midos Chapter 2 or following Midos) and in Rav P. Kahati's Mishnayos (page 290, at the beginning of Midos).

1) [line 2] SECHAR HAGAFAS DELASOS - payment for closing the doors of the Beis ha'Mikdash (that were opened by the previous Mishmar)

2) [line 3] MI'SHTEIM ESREI BA'I MIFLAG - the Kohen Gadol would have taken half of the twelve loaves

3) [line 3] BATZIR CHADA MI'PALGA - one loaf is taken away from half (of twelve -- since Rabanan rule that the Kohen Gadol usually takes less than half)

4) [line 9] MISHMAR HA'MIS'AKEV - any Mishmar or Mishmaros that came to the Beis ha'Mikdash for a Yom Tov that fell on a Thursday and stayed until after Shabbos, or that came before Shabbos for a Yom Tov that fell on the following Monday

12) [line 35] ZAV
(a) A Zav, a man who emits Zov two or three times (see Background to Shabbos 84:1), whether it is emitted in one day or in two or three consecutive days, is an Av ha'Tum'ah. Zov is a clear discharge with the appearance of the white of a sterile or spoiled egg, in contrast with semen, which has the consistency of fresh egg white. Zov can also be a pus-like discharge resembling the liquid from barley dough or soft barley batter.
(b) A man who emits a discharge that may be Zov is "checked " to determine whether or not he becomes a Zav. If the discharge came about b'Ones (due to an external cause), he is Tahor. Some examples of Ones are: 1. eating too much; 2. drinking too much; 3. jumping; 4. being sick; etc. (see Zavim 2:2).
(c) A Zav must count seven "clean" days in which he sees no Zov in order to start his purification process, as it states in Vayikra 15:13. On the seventh day or afterwards, he must immerse in a spring. At nightfall he becomes Tahor, if he did not emit Zov again beforehand (ibid.).
(d) If a Zav emits Zov only two times, he does not bring a Korban. If he emitted Zov three times, whether it is emitted in one day or in two or three consecutive days, he has to bring a Korban after he becomes Tahor in order to enter the Beis ha'Mikdash and to eat Kodshim and Terumah.
