Shevuos 19


(a) Rebbi Yochanan disagrees with Chizkiyah and Ula in the previous Sugya, who established the Machlokes between Rebbi Eliezer and Rebbi Akiva by Sheretz u'Neveilah'.
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 Beis-Hamikdash.
What She'eilah did Rava now ask Rav Nachman?

(a) How does Rav Ashi attempt to resolve the She'eilah logically?

(b) On what grounds does Ravina reject this suggestion? (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?

(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?

Answers to questions



(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 Yishmael say?

(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 the performance.
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 Shagag"?

(a) Resh Lakish declared 'Ka'an Shanah Rebbi Yedi'os Sefeikos Mechalkos le'Chata'os'.
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 Resh Lakish?

(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?

(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 Rebbi Yishmael?

(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?

***** Hadran Alach 'Yedi'os ha'Tum'ah' *****

***** 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 le'Haba'?

(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?

(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?
