(a) Rebbi Yochanan disagrees with Chizkiyah and Ula in the previous Sugya,
who established the Machlokes between Rebbi Eliezer and Rebbi Akiva by
What does *he* say?
(b) How do we know that Rav Sheishes agrees with him.
What did he used to
do that proves it?
(c) Both Tana'im obligate someone who forgot that he was Tamei to bring a
Korban Oleh ve'Yored, but exempt him if he forgot that he was in the
What She'eilah did Rava now ask Rav Nachman?

(c) So how does Ravina resolve the She'eilah?
(a) What does the Beraisa say in a case where someone walked along two
paths, one Tamei, and the other Tahor (though it is not known which is
which), and then enters the Beis-Hamikdash?
Answers to questions
(b) Over which case do the Tana Kama and Rebbi Shimon argue?
(c) The Tana Kama rules 'Chayav' because at the end of the day, he
definitely traversed the Tamei path.
Why does Rebbi Shimon then exempt him
from a Korban?
(d) What does Rebbi Shimon ben Yehudah say in the name of Rebbi Shimon?
(a) What problem do we have with the ruling of Rebbi Shimon ben Yehudah who
says in the name of Rebbi Shimon that someone who walks along two paths, one
Tamei, and the other Tahor, and then enters the Beis-Hamikdash, is Patur
from a Korban Oleh ve'Yored?
(b) Rava establishes the case when, at the time that he traversed the second
path, he forgot what he had done in the first instance.
How does that
explain Rebbi Shimon ben Yehudah's ruling?
(c) What does the Tana Kama then hold?
(a) What problem do we have with the Tana Kama in the case where someone
traverses one of the paths and enters the Beis Hamikdash, Tovels and is
sprinkled with the ashes of the Parah Adumah, then traverses the second path
and enters the Beis Hamikdash a second time? Why ought he not to be Chayav?
(b) Rebbi Yochanan explains that the Tana Kama holds 'Asu Safek Yedi'ah
ki'Yedi'ah'. According to Resh Lakish however, the Tana Kama is none other
than Rebbi Yishmael.
How does this solve the problem? What does Rebbi
(a) What is someone who ate Safek Cheilev Safek Shuman obligated to do?
(b) The Beraisa discusses a case where after eating a piece of fat and
realizing that what he ate was Safek Cheilev Safek Shuman, a person repeats
How many Asham Taluys does Rebbi obligate him to bring?
(c) What do Rebbi Shimon ben Yehudah and Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon in the
name of Rebbi Shimon say?
(d) How do they derive this from the Pasuk in Vayikra "al Shigegaso Asher
(a) Resh Lakish declared 'Ka'an Shanah Rebbi Yedi'os Sefeikos Mechalkos
What does he mean by this?
(b) What does Rebbi Yochanan say? How does he differ from Resh Lakish with
regard to Yedi'os by Chata'os?
(c) What problem do we now have with the opinions of both Rebbi Yochanan and
(a) How do we resolve the contradiction in Rebbi Yochanan, based on the
Pasuk "ve'Ne'elam" (by the Korban Oleh ve'Yored) on the one hand, and "O
Hoda Eilav Chataso" (by the Chatas Kavu'a) on the other?
***** Hadran Alach 'Yedi'os ha'Tum'ah' *****
(b) What problem do we have with Resh Lakish? Based on the latter Beraisa,
what alternative did Resh Lakish have to establishing the first one like
(c) Then why did he choose to establish it like Rebbi Yishmael?
(d) Why is this not obvious, bearing in mind that he uses "ve'Ne'elam" (from
which the Chachamim learn 'Yedi'ah ba'Techilah') for something else?
***** Perek Shevu'os Shetayim (Basra) *****
(a) What does 'Shevu'os Shetayim she'Hein Arba' mean?
(b) What radical ruling does Rebbi Akiva issue with regard to 'Lo Ochal
(c) On what equally radical Halachah does he base this ruling?
(a) What does the Beraisa say about Reuven who says to Shimon, either
'Shevu'ah Lo Ochal Lach', 'Shevu'ah she'Ochal Lach' or 'Lo Shevu'ah she'Lo
Ochal Lach'? What do all these cases have in common?
(b) What does the last case imply?
(c) What Kashya does this Beraisa pose on our Mishnah?
(a) To answer the Kashya, how does Abaye establish the Beraisa?
Answers to questions
(b) Rav Ashi establishes the Beraisa where he said (not 'she'Ochal Lach',
but) 'she'I Ochal Lach.
Seeing as that is then the same as 'she'Lo Ochal
Lach', what is then the Chidush?
