Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
(a) What is Tum'as Heset?2)
(a) What does Shmuel learn from the expression "Shichvas Zera"?In the second version of Shmuel, Zera is only Metamei if it shoots like an arrow.
(c) What is the difference between the two versions of Shmuel?3) Rava, independently of Shmuel, is uncertain which version of Shmuel to adopt.
(a) How does the Gemara attempt to resolve his Sha'aleh from the Beraisa of 'Ba'al Keri she'Taval ve'Lo Hitil Mayim le'che'she'Yatil Mayim, Tamei'?4) The Gemara poses two questions, based on the contention that we go after when the Keri moved (like the first version of Shmuel).
(a) What will be the Din with regard to a non-Jew who 'had thoughts' and then converted?Assuming that we are strict in the latter case, the Gemara asks what the Din will be in the case of a non-Jewess who had a similar urge, and then converted.
(c) What is the Sha'aleh?
5) Shmuel requires the Zov of a Zav to cover the opening of the Amah, in order for it to be Metamei.
(a) From where does he learn this?That is the opinion of Rebbi Nasan quoting Rebbi Yishmael.
(b) What do the Rabbanan hold, and what will they do with the Pasuk "O Hechtim Besaro be'Zovo"?6)
(a) What do the Rabbanan learn from "Zos Tihye Tum'aso *be'Zovo"*- *"Rar Besaro"* - *"es Zovo"*, on the one hand, and from "O Hechtim Besaro *mi'Zovo*" on the other?Rebbi Yishmael learns the third sighting from "O Hechtim Besaro mi'Zovo", and two sightings for Tum'ah (even to be Metamei Mishkav u'Moshav) from the previous Pasuk (See Vayikra 15:2 & 3).
(b) What do the Rabbanan learn from "Ish Ki Yihye Zav *mi'Besaro*" and from "Zovo Tamei" (in Pasuk 2)?7) Rav Chanilai quotes Rebbi Elazar be'Rebbi Shimon that the Shiur of Keri for a sighting is even the smallest amount, whereas that for touching is the volume of a lentil.
(a) From where do we learn the latter Din?The Beraisa writes 'Chomer be'Sheretz, she'ha'Sheretz Ein Chalukah Tum'aso' etc.
(b) What does that mean?The Beraisa continues 've'Chomer be'Shichvas Zera, she'ha'Shichvas Zera Metamei be'Chol Shehu' etc.
(d) What is the Kashya from here on Rav Chanilai, and how does the Gemara answer this Kashya?8) How do we reconcile the Beraisa, which gives the minimum Shiur of Tum'ah of a Sheretz as a lentil, with the Mishnah, which renders Tamei even less than the Shiur of a lentil-volume by Sheratzim?
Rav papa concludes that whether one requires the Shiur of a lentil for the
Tum'ah of touching Keri (like Rav Chanilai) or not, is in fact, a Machlokes
(a) Which Machlokes Tena'im is he referring to?According to Rav Huna Brei de'Rebbi Nasan, the Pasuk referred to in the Beraisa is "O Ish, Asher Teitzei Mimenu Shichvas Zera".
(b) How does this clash with Rav Papa's opinion, and what does Rav Huna hold.
