Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
Previous dafShabbos 61
(a) Someone who has a wound on his foot, is permitted to go out wearing one
shoe - according to some, when it is worn on the same foot as the wound.
What does the Gemara deduce from this - with regard to the reason that
one wears shoes?
(b) How does this account for the concession of going out wearing only one
shoe, which would otherwise be prohibited (two explanations)?
(c) And what does the Gemara deduce with regard to the reason for wearing
shoes, according to those who maintain that one wears the shoe on the
healthy foot? Why should it then be permitted to go out wearing only one
(a) When Rebbi Yochanan was handed his right shoe first, he exclaimed
'Asiso Makeh'! Why did he say that?
(b) Can we infer from here that Rebbi Yochanan holds like Rav Huna, who
says that one wears the single shoe on the foot with the wound?
(c) The Beraisa requires that one first puts on one's right shoe. The
Gemara is uncertain however, whether to rule like Rebbi Yochanan or like
What compromise does the Gemara suggest?
(d) What order of precedence should one follow when washing one's hand and
legs, and when anointing one's entire body?
(a) Do those who hold that Shabbos *is* Zeman Tefilin, permit one to wear
them in the street?
(b) According to those who hold it is *not*, will someone who wears them in
the street be Chayav Chatas?
(a) What can we infer from the wording in the Mishnah 've'Lo be'Kamei'a,
bi'Zeman she'Eino *min* ha'Mumcheh'?
(b) What constitutes a tried Kamei'a?
(c) What constitutes an expert in this field?
(d) Regarding a tried Kamei'a, is there any difference ...
1. ... whether the Kamei'a contains *writings* or *spices*?
2. ... between a person who is dangerously ill, and one who is merely sick?
3. ... whether it is to prevent an epileptic from going into a fit, or to
prevent someone from a family of epileptics from becoming an epileptic.
(a) May one tie or untie a Kamei'a (using a permitted knot) in the Reshus
ha'Rabim, on Shabbos?
Answers to questions
(b) What should one take care *not* to do, when wearing a tried Kamei'a in
(a) How do we reconcile the Beraisa, which declares a Kamei (formula) tried
even when it has cured only *one* person three times, with the Beraisa
which declares it tried only when it has cured three different people?
(b) In which case does Rav Papa consider both the man to be expert and the
Kamei'a to be tried?
(c) In which case does he consider the man an expert, but not the Kamei'a
to be tried?
(d) And when will the Kamei'a be tried, but the man is not considered an
(a) Rav Papa is uncertain what the Din will be if three different Kamei'os
cured one person on three different occasions.
What exactly, is his
(b) Why is this any different from the Beraisa we learnt above, which
describes a Kamei'a as tried, as 'Kol she'Ripah, ve'Shanah, ve'Shilesh'?
(a) The Gemara asks whether a Kamei'a has sanctity or not.
How do we
know that the Sha'aleh is not whether one may save it from a fire by
carrying it into a courtyard (which has no Eiruv), or not?
(b) And how do we know that the Sha'aleh is not whether one may throw away
the Kamei'a, or whether it needs to go into Genizah?
(c) Then what *is* the Sha'aleh?
(d) How does the Gemara attempt to answer the Sha'aleh from an inference
from our Mishnah, which writes 've'Lo be'Kamei'a, bi'Zeman she'Eino *min*
(a) Why does the Gemara reject the answer, that our Mishnah is speaking
about.. 1. ... a Kamei'a of spices, and not of writing? 2. ... a 'Choleh
she'Yesh Bo Sakanah', who is not obligated to remove his Kamei'a?
What is ...
(b) On what grounds does the Gemara reject the suggestion, that whatever
acts as a cure, is permitted even to carry in one's hands in the street?
(c) How does the Gemara finally refute the proof in 8d (that a Kamei'a
cannot possibly be holy, because, if it were, then why are we not worried
he might take it off to go to the bath-room)?
(d) Then why may one not enter a bath-room wearing Tefilin, which are also
covered with leather, just like a Kamei'a?
