1) R. YEHUDAH AND R. SHIMON ON RITZUI TZITZ (cont'd)
(a) Question: What is R. Yehudah's source for the correct
placement of the Tzitz?
2) MORE ON TUMAS HAMES HUTRAH OR DECHUYAH
(b) Answer: Al Mitzcho
(c) Question: That should suffice for R. Shimon, as well?
(d) Answer: Indeed it does.
(e) Question: What, then, will R. Shimon do with Al Metzach...
(f) Answer: To teach that the Tzitz needs to be *able* to be on
the Metzach of the Kohen (i.e. not broken).
(g) Question: How will R. Yehudah learn this Din?
(h) Answer: Metzach-Metzcho
(i) Question: What will R. Shimon do with the extra Vav?
(j) Answer: It is not significant for interpretation.
(a) This appears to be a Machlokes Tanaim in the Bereisa.
1. (R. Meir) Both Kohanim (Yom Kippur and Parah) get
Haza'ah on all seven days of their Perishah.
(b) The dispute seems to center on Dechuyah (R. Meir) and Hutrah
2. (R. Yosi) It is only on the third and seventh days
3. (R. Chanina) The Kohen of the Parah gets every day
while the Kohen of Yom Kippur gets on the third and
(c) Question: But then R. Yosi should not require *any*
(d) Answer: Both Tanaim hold Dechuyah, and they are arguing over
whether Tevilah b'Zemanah is (R.Meir) or is not (R. Yosi) a
(e) Question: But our understanding of the Bereisa is that R.
Yosi holds that it *is* a Mitzvah?!
(f) Answer: Both Tanaim in that Bereisa hold Mitzvah, and they
are arguing over whether (R. Meir) or not (R. Yosi) we link
Haza'ah to Tevilah.
(g) Question: Does R. Chanina make the link or not?
(h) Answer: He does not (and the Kohen Parah gets Haza'ah as a
(i) Whom does the Bereisa below follow?
3) LISHKAS PARHADRIN
1. The Perishas Kohen of Yom Kippur is for Kedushah and
that of Parah is for Taharah.
(j) It may either be R. Meir or R. Yosi, but not R. Chanina
(according to whom there are several differences).
2. This is the sole difference between them.
3. A practical difference is whether others may touch him.
(k) Question: There is no reason for Haza'ah on the fourth day!?
(l) Answer: R. Meir does not mean *every* day, since Shabbos is
anyway not possible.
(m) An application of this would be that we would take the Kohen
Parah so that his fourth day is Shabbos (and there is only
one lost day of Haza'ah).
(a) Question: But it was called Lishkas Balvati (officers), not
Parhadrin (market overseer for the King).
(b) Answer: In the good days it was called Balvati; when the
office became corrupted it was known as Parhadrin.
