ZEVACHIM 105 - sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of
love for the Torah and for those who study it.
(a) Rebbi Elazar asked what the Din will be if those who took the Parim
ha'Nisrafin out of the Azarah took it back.
What exactly is the She'eilah?
(b) How do we try to resolve the She'eilah from our Mishnah, which renders
Tahor those carriers who have not yet left the Azarah?
(c) How does Ravina (or Rava) refute this proof (as well as the current
version of Rebbi Elazar's She'eilah), based on the Pasuk in Metzora
"va'Achar Yavo el ha'Machaneh"?
(d) Then what is really Rebbi Elazar's She'eilah?
(a) What does the Beraisa say about ...
(b) According to Rebbi Meir, all three are Metamei food and drink.
- ... the one who burns the Parah Adumah and the Parim ha'Nisrafin, those who take it out from the Azarah, and the one who takes out the Sa'ir ha'Mishtale'ach?
- ... the Parah Adumah, the Parim ha'Nisrafin and the Sa'ir themselves?
the Chachamim say?
(c) What reason do they give for that?
(d) If the Din of Metam'in Begadim is written explicitly by the Parah Adumah
and by the Par of Yom Kipur, from where do we know it by Par Kohen Mashi'ach
and Par ha'Eidah?
(a) Tana de'Bei Rebbi Yishmael Darshens the Pasuk in Shemini (in connection
with Hechsher Tum'ah) "Al Kol Zera Zeru'a .. ", which he restricts to things
which will not be Metamei Tum'ah Chamurah.
What does he mean by that?
(b) What does he then learn from there with regard to ...
(c) What Kashya does this pose on the Rabbanan of Rebbi Meir?
- ... Nivlas Of Tahor?
- ... Parah, Parim and Sa'ir? In what way would they then be unique?
(d) How do we therefore amend Tana de'Bei Rebbi Yishmael? What do we mean
when we say 'Tz'richin Hechsher Tum'ah mi'Makom Acher'?
(a) Rebbi Elazar asked whether Parim and Se'irim ha'Hisrafin are Metamei
food and drink (Tum'ah Kalah) whilst they are still inside the Azarah.
What is the She'eilah? Why might they be Metamei them, bearing in mind that
they are not yet Metamei Tum'ah Chamurah?
(b) What was his conclusion?
(c) In similar vein, Rebbi Aba bar Mamal asked Rebbi Chiya bar Aba whether a
k'Zayis of Nivlas Of Tahor is Metamei.
What makes this She'eilah similar
to the previous one? Why is Nivlas Of Tahor considered Mechusar Ma'aseh even
though the bird is already dead?
(d) Why is this She'eilah confined to the opinion of Rebbi Meir?
(a) Rebbi Aba bar Mamal added that his She'eilah did not pertain to a case
where the Nivlas Of Tahor was either lying on the floor or already in the
mouth of the person eating it (which contained Tahor food).
Answers to questions
(b) Then what is the case?
(c) What is then his She'eilah?
(d) What did Rebbi Chiya bar Aba reply?
(a) What does the Beraisa mean when it presents one of the thirteen things
said in connection with Nivlas Of Tamei 'Tzerichah Machshavah ve'Einah
(b) What does the Tana add in connection with 'Metam'in Tum'as Ochlin'?
(c) Why must the Tana be speaking when the person is holding the bird in his
(a) What do we try to prove from the Seifa of this Beraisa?
(b) On what grounds do we query our attempt to establish the Seifa like the
(c) The Beraisa continues 'Shechitasah u'Melikasah Metaheres Tereifasah
mi'Tum'asah', which as we already learned in 'Chatas ha'Of', is the opinion
of Rebbi Meir.
How do we answer both the previous query and the Kashya
from the continuation 'Reisha ve'Seifa Rebbi Meir, u'Metzi'asa, Rabbanan'?
(a) What did Rav Hamnuna say to Rebbi Zeira when he asked him whether Rishon
le'Tum'ah and Sheini le'Tum'ah apply to Nivlas Of Tahor?
(b) Rav Zeira replied that Rishon and Sheini le'Tum'ah only apply to
something that is Metamei through touching.
What is his source for that?
(a) What does the Mishnah in Taharos say about two half k'Zeisim of Neveilah
which are joined by liquid that is 'Tofe'ach' (enough to wet the hand that
touches it sufficiently that it will in turn, make other things wet)?
(b) What did Rebbi Zeira ask Rebbi Avin bar Chiya (or Rebbi Avin bar Kahana)
about food or drink that touched one of the half-k'Zeisim?
(c) What did Rebbi Avin bar Chiya reply?
(a) Bearing in mind that the Pasuk writes in connection with the Par Kohen
ha'Mashi'ach "el mi'Chutz la'Machaneh", and then compares the Par ha'Eidah
to it, when it writes "Ka'asher Saraf es ha'Par ha'Rishon", what does the
Beraisa learn from the Pasuk ...
(b) What makes this latter Pasuk superfluous?
- ... (written in connection with the latter) "el mi'Chutz la'Machaneh"?
- ... (written in connection with the Terumas ha'Deshen) "el mi'Chutz la'Machaneh"?
(c) Bearing in mind that the Par and Sa'ir of Yom Kipur also belong to the
above category, what does another Beraisa learn from the Pasuk in
Acharei-Mos "el mi'Chutz la'Machaneh", implying 'outside the first Machaneh'
(i.e. as soon as they leave Machaneh Shechinah)?
(a) What problem do we now have with Rebbi Shimon (in our Mishnah)?
Answers to questions
(b) We therefore establish Rebbi Shimon like Rebbi Eliezer in yet a third
Beraisa, who learns a 'Gezeirah-Shavah "Chutz la'Machaneh" (by Yom Kipur)
and "Chutz la'Machaneh" (by the burning of the Parah Adumah).
Halachah do we learn ...
(c) How do we know that the Parah Adumah is burned on the east side of
- ... in connection with Parah Adumah, from the Par ve'Sa'ir of Yom Kipur?
- ... in connection with Yom Kipur, from Parah Adumah?
