Rebbi Elazar ben Yehudah Ish Bartosa, quoting Rebbi Yehoshua.
(a) The Rabanan maintain that one should not destroy Terumah Tehorah, in
case one finds Kohanim who are willing to eat it.

hour (Shabbos, Erev Pesach), they have not found Kohanim to eat the
Terumah-Chametz, they will be most unlikely to find any now?
(b) How does Rebbi Elazar ben Yehudah counter that from Teluyos (which are
(c) What do the Chachamim answer to that?
(d) Why is the fact that the Tana in the Beraisa rules like Rebbi Elazar

What does the Beraisa say?
(b) From which Pasuk in Mas'ei is this concept derived?

Answers to questions
In fact, he forgot
what he had originally said, before he became ill, and forgot his
How did he originally explain Rebbi's ruling?
(b) What is the connection between Rebbi's ruling here and that of Raban
Shimon ben Gamliel in Bava Metzi'a, with regard to a deposit of corn that
is going bad?
(c) Why might even the Rabbanan, who argue there with Raban Shimon ben
Gamliel, agree with Rebbi in our case, that one may sell the Chametz in
the fifth hour?

Why is that?
(d) Rebbi Yanai however, could not have given the above explanation,
because, if the Todah was lost, there is no reason why the loaves could

(a) What status do the loaves have prior to the Shechitah of the animal?
