Previous daf Chagigah 7
(a) We learned in a Mishnah in Pei'ah: 'ha'Pei'ah, ve'ha'Bikurim,
ve'ha'Ra'ayon ... Ein Lahem Shiur'.
Which other two must be added to the
(b) Is this only mi'd'Oraysa or even mi'de'Rabbanan?
(c) What did Rebbi Yochanan initially contend with regard to Ra'ayon? What
(d) Who corrected Rebbi Yochanan? What did he say?
(a) According to Resh Lakish, Ra'ayon means appearing in the Azarah with a
What does Rebbi Yochanan say? Why does he say that?
(b) In which case does Rebbi Yochanan agree with Resh Lakish?
(c) According to Rebbi Yochanan, is one permitted to bring an Olas Re'iyah
on the subsequent days of Yom-Tov, if he so wishes?
(d) Then what is their Machlokes?
(a) How does Rebbi Yochanan establish the Pasuk in Mishpatim "ve'Lo Yeira'u
(b) How does the Tana of the Beraisa know that the above Pasuk refers to
animals and not to birds and flour-offerings?
(c) And how does he know that it is referring to Olos and not Shelamim?
(d) Why is that the correct thing to do?
(a) What Derashah does the Tana of another Beraisa make from "Yeira'eh"
"Yir'eh" that disproves our original interpretation of Resh Lakish's opinion
(that Ra'ayon means appearing in the Azarah specifically with a Korban)?
Answers to questions
(b) We now retract from our original interpretation of the Machlokes. In
fact, even Resh Lakish agrees that someone who comes without an Olas Re'iyah
still performs a Mitzvah.
What then, is the Machlokes between Rebbi
Yochanan and Resh Lakish?
(c) Resh Lakish explains the Pasuk in Mishlei "Hokar Raglecha mi'Beis
Rei'echa" (which seems to suggest that one should rather bring less Korbanos
than more) like Levi.
How does Levi resolve the apparent discrepancy
between this Pasuk and the Pasuk in Tehilim "Avo Beisecha be'Olos"?
(d) Whom does the Beraisa support, Rebbi Yochanan or Resh Lakish?
(a) Rav Yosef initially explains the Beraisa, which says 've'Ein Nir'in
la'Chatza'in' to mean that someone who has ten sons, should not bring five
of them to the Azarah on one day of Yom-Tov, and the other five on another
What objection does Abaye raise to that?
(b) Abaye therefore establishes the Derashah like Acheirim.
Acheirim Darshen from "Kol Zechurcha"?
(a) Our Mishnah writes that the Olas Re'iyah must be bought with Chulin
Is this peculiar to the Olas Re'iyah?
(b) To which Shelamim is the Tana referring when he says 've'ha'Shelamim min
(c) According to Beis Shamai, the Chagigah of the first day of Pesach must
be purchased from Chulin money.
What do Beis Hillel say?
(a) A Yisrael can fulfill his obligation with Nedarim, Nedavos and with an
animal of Ma'aser Beheimah.
Which obligation is the Tana referring to?
(b) Can a Kohen fulfill his obligation with the Chata'os and Ashamos or the
Chazeh ve'Shok that they receive from a Yisrael?
(c) Is one Yotze Simchah on Yom-Tov ...
- ... with the meat of birds?
- ... with Menachos?
(a) What problem do we have with the Lashon of our Mishnah 'Olos be'Mo'ed
Ba'os min ha'Chulin'?
(b) On what grounds do we refute the suggestion that the Tana says
'be'Mo'ed', because bringing Olos (even Olos Re'iyah) on Yom-Tov is
(a) Which of the Korbanos discussed in this Perek do Beis Shamai permit on
(b) What do Beis Shamai learn from ...
(c) Beis Shamai prohibit Semichah on Shalmei Chagigah and Simchah.
- ... "Lachem" (Bo)?
- ... "be'Mo'ado" (Pinchas)?
(d) Beis Hillel permit all three Korbenos Yachid of Yom-Tov to be brought on
Yom-Tov (but not Nedarim and Nedavos).
In view of what we just said, why
do they permit Semichah?
(a) We answer the Kashya from 'Olos be'Mo'ed Ba'os min ha'Chulin' (see 8a.)
with the classical answer 'Chasurei Mechsera, ve'Hachi Katani'.
