ZEVACHIM 47-50 - Dedicated to the leaders and participants in the Dafyomi
shiurim at the Young Israel of New Rochelle, by Andy & Nancy Neff
(a) Our Mishnah (which confines Machsheves P'sul to the Oved) does not go
like Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Yossi, who says - that the owner of a Korban is
Mefagel (as well).
(b) And he learns this from the Pasuk (in connection with the Nesachim)
"Ve'hikriv ha'Makriv Korbano la'Hashem" - since the Pasuk (which is talking
about the owner bringing his Korban with the appropriate Nesachim) refers to
him as 'ha'Makriv'.
(c) Abaye points out that Rebbi Eliezer and Rebbi Shimon ben Elazar hold
similar views to Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Yossi. The Tana Kama of a Mishnah in
Chulin permits an animal that a Yisrael Shechts on behalf of a Nochri. Rebbi
Eliezer disagrees - because he takes into account the Machshavah of the
owner, whose S'tam Machshavah is for Avodah-Zarah.
(d) And Rebbi Shimon ben Elazar rules - that if Reuven carries out into the
street on Shabbos less than the Shiur of an article that Shimon put away
(because he considered it Chashuv), he is Chayav.
(a) We presume that ...
***** Hadran Alach 'Beis Shamai' *****
1. ... both Rebbi Eliezer and Rebbi Shimon ben Elazar hold like Rebbi Elazar
b'Rebbi Yossi - because if he says 'Nischayev Zeh be'Machshavto shel Zeh'
ba'Chutz, 'Kal-va'Chomer' bi'Fenim (by Korbanos, where the main Din of
Machshavah is written).
(b) And we presume that Rebbi Shimon ben Elazar holds like Rebbi Eliezer,
but not vice-versa - because with regard to Shabbos, the Torah requires
"Meleches Machsheves" (that the person who performs the Melachah means what
he is doing). Consequently, someone who applies the principle of 'Nischayev
Zeh be'Machshavto shel Zeh' on Shabbos (despite 'Meleches Machsheves'), will
certainly apply it by Avodas-Kochavim (which is even compared to Avodas
P'nim regarding the Avodos for which one is Chayav), but not vice-versa.
2. ... Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Yossi does not hold like them - because, since
he only issued his ruling bi'Fenim (in connection with Kodshim), he probably
does not hold of it in other areas of Halachah.
***** Perek Eizehu Mekoman *****
(a) Our Mishnah discusses the location where Kodshei Kodashim are Shechted.
'Kodshei Kodashim' incorporates four types of Korban. Three of them are
Chatas, Asham and Olah - the fourth is Zivchei Shalmei Tzibur (that are
brought on Shavu'os).
(b) The first Korbanos discussed are 'Par ve'Sa'ir shel Yom ha'Kipurim'.
Besides the Shechitah - the Kabalas ha'Dam also requires Tzafon.
(c) Their blood is sprinkled - between the poles of the Aron, towards the
Paroches and on the Mizbe'ach ha'Zahav.
(d) We learn that they (as well as all Kodshim) require the blood to be
received in a K'li Shareis - from Har Sinai, where the Torah writes that
Moshe received the blood in bowls and to which all other Korbanos are
(a) After all the Haza'os, the Kohen Gadol poured the Shirayim - on the
western Yesod of the Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon.
(b) The distinction between the Haza'os and the pouring of the Shirayim - is
that whereas even one Haza'ah is crucial to the Avodah, the Shefichas
Shirayim is not.
(a) The difference between the Avodah of the Par ve'Sa'ir shel Yom
ha'Kipurim and that of the Parim and Se'irim ha'Nisrafin is - that the blood
of the latter was not sprinkled in the Kodesh Kodshim, whereas the blood of
the former was, as we just learned.
(b) The Shirayim of the latter was poured - on the western Yesod of the
Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon (like the Par ve'Sa'ir shel Yom ha'Kipurim).
(c) All of the above were burned - outside Yerushalayim, on the 'Shefech
ha'Deshen' (the place where the Terumas ha'Deshen was poured each morning).
(a) We ascribe the fact that our Mishnah does not mention 've'Kibul Daman
bi'Cheli Shareis ba'Tzafon' by Kodshei Kodshim, to the Asham Metzora -
meaning that it could not do so, since Kodshei Kodshim incorporates Asham
Metzora, whose blood had to be received in the Kohen's palm, and not in a
(b) The Tana nevertheless mentions it later in the very Mishnah which deals
with Asham Nazir and Asham Metzora - because part of its blood did have to
be received in a K'li Shareis (as we shall now see).
(c) The Beraisa learns from the Pasuk ...
1. ... "Ve'lakach ha'Kohen mi'Dam ha'Asham ... Ve'nasan al T'nuch ... " -
that just as "Ve'nasan" had to be done with the hands, so too "Ve'lakach"?
2. ... "Ki ka'Chatas ha'Asham Hu" - that the blood of the Asham Metzora,
just like that of the Chatas, had to be received in a K'li Shareis.
(a) We resolve this apparent discrepancy - by establishing the first Drashah
with regard to the blood that the Kohen placed on the various locations of
the Metzora's body, and the second, to the blood that was sprinkled on the
(b) In fact - two Kohanim had to receive the blood of the Asham Metzora, one
with his palms, the other, with a bowl. The latter carried it to the
Mizbe'ach, the former, took the blood in his palm to the Metzora.
