Previous dafYoma 64
YOMA 59-88 have been dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Simcha
Bekelnitzky (Simcha Gedalya ben Shraga Feibush) of Queens N.Y. by his wife
and daughters. Well known in the community for his Chesed and Tzedakah, he
will long be remembered.
(a) In the case in our Mishnah, when the Kohen Gadol made a second Hagralah
to replace one of the goats that died, Rav holds that it is the *first*
goat that is brought on the Mizbe'ach, and the *second* one that grazes.
Why is that?
(b) What does Rebbi Yochanan say?
(c) Why can the source of Rav's opinion not be the case of a Mechusar
Z'man, where the animal is not rejected because it was unfit before?
(d) Then what *is* Rav's source?
(a) How does Rebbi Yochanan counter Rav's proof (from the Pasuk in Emor "Ki
Moshchasam Bahem Mum *Bam* that 'Ein Ba'alei Cha'im Nidachin')?
(b) What does Rav Darshen from the word "Bahem"? Like which Tana does he
(c) What does Rebbi Eliezer say?
(d) What do the Rabbanan hold?
(a) From where does *Rebbi Yochanan* learn this?
(b) What does Rav learn from the extra 'Hey' in "Bahem"?
(a) Granted, Rav holds 'Ein Ba'alei Cha'im Nidachin'. Nevertheless, why can
the Kohen Gadol not bring whichever of the two goats he wants?
Answers to questions

What is the final proof from Rebbi Yossi
that the first is the most important?
(c) What do the Chachamim of Rebbi Yossi hold?
(d) In which case will everybody agree that one brings the *second* one?
(a) What inference does Rava draw from our Mishnah, which says 'Im shel
Shem Meis, Zeh she'Alah Alav ha'Goral la'Hashem, Yiskayem Tachtav'?
(b) What does the Tana of the Beraisa learn from the words "Yo'omad Chai",
and with whose opinion does this concur?
(c) How does Rav reconcile his opinion with Rebbi Yehudah, who says
'Nishpach ha'Dam, Yamus ha'Mishtale'ach'?
(a) In which two points does Rebbi Yehudah disagree with the Rabbanan,
according to Rav?
(b) How does Rebbi Yochanan explain the second Machlokes between Rebbi
Yehudah and the Rabbanan in our Mishnah (contained in the final phrase
've'Od Amar Rebbi Yehudah ... '?
(a) What can we infer from the Mishnah 've'ha'Sheini Yir'eh ... *she'Ein
Chatas Tzibur Meisah'*?
(b) Rebbi and the Rabbanan argue in a case where a Chatas was lost,
replaced, and then found. Rebbi holds that the owner brings one of them and
the other one must die. What do the Rabbanan say?
(c) In which case do the Rabbanan agree that the second animal must die,
according to Rebbi Aba Amar Rav?
(a) How does Rebbi Aba Amar Rav concur with Rebbi Yochanan's opinion?
(b) What problem does the statement 'she'Ein Chatas Tzibur Meisah' create
vis-a-vis Rav's statement?
Answers to questions
(c) Rav's opinion seems to be a case of 'Mafrish Sh'tei Chata'os
What does Rebbi Oshaya say about 'ha'Mafrish Sh'tei
(d) What makes Rav's case different than 'Mafrish Sh'tei Chata'os
le'Acherayos'? What has that to do with the fact that he holds like Rebbi
Yossi? Whose opinion does Rav follow, that of Rebbi or the Rabbanan?
