Zevachim 98

ZEVACHIM 97-98 - Dedicated to the leaders and participants in the Dafyomi shiurim at the Young Israel of New Rochelle, by Andy & Nancy Neff


(a) "Vela'Asham" - are all like Asham, there is no Kedushah to (Rashi - the Eimurim of) a fetal sac or afterbirth;
1. R. Eliezer holds that offspring of Korbanos are not Kadosh until they are born, and Danim Efshar me'I Efshar (we learn what is possible from what is impossible - Asham is a male, it cannot have a fetal sac or afterbirth, yet we learn to Korbanos that can (be females and) have them.)
(b) "Vela'Milu'im" - are all like Milu'im (inaugural Korbanos of the Mishkan), Mosreihem (the leftovers, i.e. Nosar meat) are burned, but not a leftover living animal. (There are two possible cases of a leftover living animal - two were separated for one Korban (in case one will be lost), or a Korban was lost and another was Hukdash to replace it and then the first was found - neither of these occurred during the Milu'im.)
(c) "Ul'Zevach ha'Shelamim" - are all like Shelamim, they can make Pigul (intent Chutz li'Zmano in blood is Mefagel Nesachim (Rashi; Tosfos - the meat)) and (the meat can) become Pigul.
(d) Answer #2 (to Question 3:a, 97B - Beraisa - R. Akiva): All are like Minchah, whose absorptions are Mekadesh.
1. The Torah must teach this regarding Minchah and Chatas:
2. If it only taught that absorptions of Minchah are Mekadesh, one might have thought that this is because it is soft, and easily absorbed, but absorptions of Chatas do not Mekadesh;
3. If it only taught that absorptions of Chatas are Mekadesh, one might have thought that this is because absorptions of meat penetrate deeply, but absorptions of Minchah do not Mekadesh;
(e) (The Beraisa continues, R. Akiva expounds "Zos ha'Torah...")
(f) "Vela'Chatas" - all are like Chatas, it must be brought from Chulin money, during the day, and using the right hand (for Zerikah).
1. Question: What is the source for Chatas?
2. Answer (Rav Chisda): "V'Hikriv Aharon Es Par ha'Chatas Asher Lo" - it was his, not of the Tzibur, and not of Ma'aser money;
3. Question: "B'Yom Tzavoso..." teaches that Korbanos must be brought during the day!
4. Answer: Indeed, we do not learn this from Chatas, it was taught for no reason.
5. Question: We learn the right hand from Rabah bar bar Chanah!
i. (Rabah bar bar Chanah): 'Etzba' or 'Kehunah' (by itself) always teaches that the right hand is required (and regarding every Korban, it says 'Kohen'!)
6. Answer #1: Indeed, we do not learn this from Chatas, it was taught for no reason.
7. Answer #2: R. Akiva holds like R. Shimon, who says that 'Etzba' by itself teaches the right hand, but 'Kehunah' by itself does not.
(g) "Vela'Asham" - the bones of all Korbanos are permitted, just like bones of Asham. (The Torah permitted all the meat (except for the Eimurim) to Kohanim, and Nosar does not apply to the bones; alternatively, we learn from "Lo Yihyeh".)


(a) (Rava): It is clear to me that if Dam Chatas splashed onto a garment and then Dam Olah, it must be laundered
(b) Question (Rava): If Dam Olah splashed onto a garment and then Dam Chatas, what is the law?
1. If a garment must be laundered because it touched Dam Chatas, it must be laundered;
2. If the obligation to launder is because it absorbed Dam Chatas, it did not absorb (it was already satiated with Dam Olah!)
(c) Answer (Rava): It need not be laundered.
(d) (Rava): It is clear to me that blood on a garment is a Chatzizah (and disqualifies immersion), unless the owner is a butcher (for he is used to this, he is not insistent to clean it);
(e) (Rava): It is clear to me that Revav (a fat or wax stain) on a garment is a Chatzizah, unless the owner sells Revav;
(f) Question (Rava): If blood and Revav are both on a garment, what is the law?
1. Question: Whether the owner is a butcher (and objects to Revav) or sells Revav (and objects to blood), one of these is a Chatzizah!
2. Answer: The question is when the owner is a butcher *and* sells Revav:
i. He does not objects to one stain, but he objects to two;
ii. Or, perhaps he does not object even to two stains!
(g) This question is not resolved.
***** PEREK TEVUL YOM ****


(a) (Mishnah): A Tevul Yom or Mechushar Kipurim does not receive Kodshim to eat them at night (when he will be permitted);
(b) An Onen may touch Kodshim, but he may not do Avodah and does not receive a share to eat at night.
(c) A Ba'al Mum, whether the Mum is temporary or permanent, receives a share to eat at night, but he may not Oved.
(d) Anyone who may not do Avodah does not receive a share;
(e) Anyone who does not receive meat does not receive hides.
(f) Even a Kohen who was Tamei at the time of Zerikah and Tahor at the time of Haktaras ha'Chelev does not receive a share of the meat - "Ha'Makriv Es Dam ha'Shelamim v'Es ha'Chelev mi'Benei Aharon Lo Sihyeh...l'Manah".
