REVIEW QUESTIONS ON GEMARA AND RASHI
prepared by Rabbi Eliezer Chrysler
Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
Previous dafYoma 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
(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
(b) Rav Chisda establishes the Mishnah even like the Rabbanan - by Achar
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
(c) 'Kol Chayvei Tevilos Tevilasan ba'Yom, Nidah ve'Yoledes Tevilasan
Can we infer from this Beraisa that a Bo'el Nidah may Tovel by
(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?
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.
(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"?
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
(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'.
Answers to questions
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
(c) What does the second Lashon hold?
