Yoma 6


(a) How do we know that the Lishkas Farhedrin was not sanctified with the Kedushah of the Azarah?

(b) Why did the Kohen Gadol not take his wife with him into the Lishkas Falhedrin?

(c) On what grounds does the Gemara reject the contention that it was because he may be Bo'el his wife whilst she was a Safek Nidah?

(a) Why do we initially think that the author of our Mishnah must be Rebbi Akiva?

(b) Rav Chisda establishes the Mishnah even like the Rabbanan - by Achar Echad.
What is 'Achar Echad' and what is 'Achar Achar'?

(a) How do we attempt to prove from the fact that we separate the Kohen Gadol seven days from Tum'as Nidah that 'Bo'el Nidah Einah ke'Nidah' (with regard to Tevilah)?

(b) How do we explain our Mishnah even according to those who hold Bo'el Nidah ke'Nidah?

(c) 'Kol Chayvei Tevilos Tevilasan ba'Yom, Nidah ve'Yoledes Tevilasan ba'Laylah'.
Can we infer from this Beraisa that a Bo'el Nidah may Tovel by day?

(d) The Beraisa 'Ba'al Keri ke'Maga Sheretz, Bo'el Nidah ke'Tamei Mes' seems to prove that 'Bo'el Nidah Einah ke'Nidah'.
How do we reject this proof? How else might we explain the Beraisa?

(a) What is the problem with the latter interpretation of the Beraisa?

(b) The Gemara answers 'Seifa Itztricha Lei'.
In which way is a Bo'el Nidah more stringent than a Tamei Mes?

(c) Having written "Vatehi Nidasah Alav" (Tazri'a), why does the Torah find it necessary to add "Kol ha'Mishkav Asher Yishkav Alav Yitma"?

5) The Gemara finally cites a Beraisa from which it is clear that 'Bo'el Nidah Einah ke'Nidah'. The Beraisa lists a Nidah and a Yoledes as the only two Tum'os who must wait until *nightfall* before Toveling.
Which five Tum'os, besides Bo'el Nidah, does the Tana list permitting them to Tovel already on the *seventh day*?

Answers to questions



(a) What is the Gemara suggesting when it asks why the Tana of our Mishnah is only concerned about the Tum'ah of a Bo'el Nidah, and not about Tum'as Mes?

(b) How does Rava prove from here that Tum'ah Hutrah Hi be'Tzibur?

(c) How does Ravina refute Rava's proof, to explain the Mishnah even if the Tana holds 'Tum'ah Dechuyah Hi be'Tzibur'?

(d) According to Rava, most of the Korbanos of Yom Kipur are indeed Korbenos Tzibur - but since when is the Kohen Gadol's Korban (his bull and his ram) considered a Korban Tzibur?

(a) Rav Nachman holds 'Tum'ah Hutrah be'Tzibur'.
What does Rav Sheshes hold, and what are the ramifications of his statement?

(b) According to the first Lashon, Rav Nachman will agree that if there are any Tehorim in the Beis-Av of that day, *they* are the ones who will serve in the Beis-Hamikdash, and not the Temei'im.
Then when does he argue with Rev Sheishes?

(c) What does the second Lashon hold?
