What of the Shelamim, besides the Eimurin, requires Tenufah?

(c) Which other two items does the Tana include?

(a) What is the difference between ...
  1. ... "Asher Hunaf" and "Asher Huram"?

(b) Which takes precedence (i.e. comes first), Tenufah or Hagashah?

(c) Which two Menachos require both Tenufah and Hagashah?

(d) Which is the only Minchah that requires neither?

(a) Rebbi Shimon lists three Korbanos, each of which requires two out of three specific Mitzvos (but not the third). Two of the three ...
  1. ... Korbanos are Zivchei Shalmei Yachid and Zivchei Shalmei Tzibur.
    What is the third?

(c) How do we answer the Kashya? Why is a Minchah different?

(a) What does Rebbi Eliezer ben Ya'akov learn from the Pasuk in Ki Savo "Ve'lakach ha'Kohen ha'Tene mi'Yadecha"?

(b) What is the connection between this Pasuk and the Pasuk in Tzav (in connection with the Korban Shelamim) "Yadav Tevi'enah"?

(c) A 'Gezeirah-Shavah' generally cuts two ways.
In which way is Shelamim compared to Bikurim?

(d) How was the Tenufah then performed?

Answers to questions



(a) We ask why the author of our Mishnah (which requires Tenufah by Bikurim) cannot be Rebbi Yehudah.
What does Rebbi Yehudah learn from the Pasuk in Ki Savo (in connection with Bikurim) "Ve'hinachto"?

(b) What do we mean when we answer that we prefer to establish Rebbi Eliezer ben Ya'akov as the author, because he was a great man?

(c) What reason does Rava give for doing so?

(a) After including the Chazeh ve'Shok of Shalmei Nashim in the Din of Tenufah, the Tana adds 'Aval Lo ba'Acherim' (implying that he precludes them).
How does Rav Yehudah explain it?

(b) Then who performs the Tenufah on their Korban?

(c) What does the Tana Kama of a Beraisa learn from the Pasuk in Tzav (in connection with the Tenufah) "B'nei Yisrael"? Whom does this come to preclude?

(a) What does Rebbi Yossi there, say to explain why if we exempt the Korban of a woman and of a Nochri from Semichah completely, because the Torah writes "B'nei Yisrael" (in that connection), why do we not do likewise with regard to Tenufah, where the Torah uses the same words?

(b) What does Rebbi Yossi then learn from "B'nei Yisrael" (written by Tenufah)?

(c) What does another Beraisa learn from "ha'Makriv"? Whom does it come to include?

(d) Why can the Pasuk not be coming to preclude the owner from participating in the Tenufah?
