YOMA 45 have been anonymously sponsored towards a REFU'AH SHELEMAH to Shmuel
Yakov ben Ayala Hinda, Ilana Golda bas Chana and Klarees Marcia bas Mammie.
1) THE COLOR OF THE GOLD
(a) (R. Chisda) There are seven types of gold, each listed with
its name derivation.
2) THE EXTRA FINE FLOUR
(b) (R. Ashi) There are five types, each comes in regular and
(c) A Beraisa is cited to affirm that the gold called Parvaim
derives its name from its similarity to the blood of Parim.
(a) The extra word Dakah teaches us a finer ground over the
already fine ground normally required.
3) THE KOHANIM GOING UP ON THE RIGHT SIDE
(a) As we were taught, that all turns in the Mikdash are to the
4) TODAY THE KOHEN GADOL GOES UP THE MIDDLE
(a) This is to honor the Kohen Gadol.
5) TODAY THE KOHEN GADOL DOES KIDUSH FROM THE GOLD KITON
(a) This, too, is to honor the Kohen Gadol.
6) FOUR MA'ARACHOS
(a) The Beraisa lists the opinions of R. Yehudah (two
Ma'arachos), R. Yosi (three) and Rebbi (four) and what
purpose each one would serve (all opinions add one for Yom
Kipur to the following):
1. Ma'arachah Gedolah (all opinions)
(b) The source Pesukim for the two Ma'arachos (upon which all
agree) are cited.
2. Ma'arachah Ketanah for Ketores (all opinions)
3. Kiyum HaEish (R. Yosi and Rebbi)
4. For incompletely burnt Eivarim and Pedarim (Rebbi only)
(c) The source for Kiyum HaEish is cited (R. Yosi).
(d) Question: What will R. Yehudah do with this Pasuk?
(e) Answer: R. Yehudah will learn that the Alisa must be lit on
the Mizbeach (as we find the opinions of both R. Yehudah and
R. Yosi in the Beraisa).
(f) Question: Whence will R. Yosi learn the rule regarding
igniting the Alisa?
(g) Answer: The same way R. Shimon learns it in the Beraisa
(applying the Pasuk to Alisa since it could not be teaching
us the obvious Halachah that a Zar cannot go on the
(h) Question: Then why doesn't R. Yehudah use the same source?
(i) Answer: That source could allow a Zar to ignite the Alisa on
the Mizbeach using a blower while standing on the ground.
(j) Question: What is the source for the Ma'arachah of Eivarim
(k) Answer: The Vav of VeEish.
(l) Question: What will the Rabanan do with that Vav?
(m) Answer: It is not subject to interpretation.
(n) Question: What will the Rabanan do with those unburnt
Eivarim and Pedarim?
(o) Answer: The Pasuk indicates that we should put them back on
the Ma'arachah Gedolah (as cited in the Beraisa).
(p) Question: What will R. Meir do with this Derashah?
7) ADDING A MA'ARACHAH FOR YOM KIPUR
(q) Answer: It teaches that only unburnt parts of an *Olah* are
returned to the fire, not those of the Ketores.
(a) Question: What is the source for this (universally agreed)
(b) Answer: It is learned from *VeHa*Eish (which is significant
even according to those who do not learn a Vav alone).
(c) Question: What is taught by Eish Tamid?
(d) Answer: As in the Beraisa, it teaches that the Ma'arachah
for the Ketores is to be made on the Mizbeach Chitzon.
(e) Question: Whence do we know the Eish, Machtah and Menorah
come from there as well?
(f) Answer: The word/concept Eish connects them all to the
Ketores (and a Pasuk is cited to prevent us from learning
the connection in the reverse).
(g) Question: Whence that the fire for the Machtah comes from
the Mizbeach HaChitzon, as well as the fire for the Menorah?
(h) Answer: They are connected, again, by Eish (and the Pasuk
prevents us from reversing the connection).
1. The Mizbeach HaChitzon is identifiable in the Pasuk as
the one which is only partially Lifnei HaShem.
2. Question: What is learned from the redundant Me'al
HaMizbeach and MiLifnei HaShem?
3. Answer: Each are needed to protect us from
misidentifying the Mizbeach HaChitzon and the location
on the Mizbeach.
