Yoma 56


(a) Which three Ma'asros was one obligated to separate from crops or wine that one purchased from Kutim?

(b) According to Rebbi Meir, how would someone who purchased a hundred Lugin of wine from the Kutim shortly before Shabbos, declare them, if he had no vessels to contain them?

(c) What is Rebbi Meir's underlying principle?

(d) On what grounds does the Tana of this Mishnah in D'mai permit the wine of Kutim?

Answers to questions



(a) Considering that Rebbi Yehudah is one of the Tana'im who sdisagree with Rebbi Meir (in the previous question), what are we trying to prove from this Mishnah?

(b) Based on the text of the Mishnah, we reject this proof.
What reason does the Mishnah itself give for those who argue with Rebbi Meir?

(a) Ultimately, we prove our contention (that Rebbi Yehudah holds 'Ein Bereirah') from a Beraisa in Eruvin, where Ayo (quoting Rebbi Yehudah) says 'Ein Adam Masneh al Sh'nei Devarim ke'Echad ... '.
What do the 'Sh'nei Devarim' refer to and what is he saying?

(b) Ayo concedes however, that if only *one* Chacham is due, the Eiruv is valid.
Why should one Chacham, in this regard, be any better than two?

(a) Seeing as Rebbi Yehudah on principle, *does* rely on writing (as we proved from the Mishnah in Shekalim) why does he reject the idea of *two* stands for the bowls of blood of the bull and goat - on one, written 'Par' and on the other, 'Sa'ir'?

(b) How do we prove this ...

  1. ... from the quantity of blood in each of the bowls?
  2. ... from the quality of blood - even taking into account the possibility of some of the blood spilling?
(a) The Chazen in Rava's Shul, whilst reciting the Avodah on Yom Kipur, once described how the Kohen Gadol would place the bowl with the blood of the Sa'ir on the second stand, before taking the bowl of blood of the bull, and that he would then place the bowl with the blood of the goat.
What was the Chazan's basic mistake?

(b) How did he amend his wording to correct his mistake?

(a) Which two Halachos does the Pasuk "ve'Chein Ya'aseh le'Ohel Mo'ed" (Acharei-Mos) come to teach us?

(b) What was that Tzedoki suggesting, when he referred to the Pasuk in Eichah "Tum'asah be'Shulehah"?

(c) What did Rebbi Chanina (using the last four words in the previous Pasuk) reply?
