ZEVACHIM 71-72 - sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of
love for the Torah and for those who study it.
(a) What does our Mishnah say about Zevachim that got mixed up with Chata'os
which must die, even one in ten thousand (which will be explained in the
(b) Three of the Chata'os ha'Meisos are the baby of a Chatas, one whose
owner dies, and a Temuras Chatas.
What are the remaining two?
(c) What does the Tana say about Zevachim that got mixed up with another
animal that is forbidden (but that is not Asur be'Hanah)?
(d) Then what does 'forbidden' mean?
(a) An example of this category is an animal that was raped or raped or that
Why is the animal not Chayav Sekilah and therefore Asur
(b) Why is the animal not put to death in the case where the owner witnessed
his animal 'sinning'?
(c) Then why can all the animals not be sold, to be brought as the same
Korban that is mixed up among them?
(a) If "min ha'Beheimah", "min ha'Bakar" and "min ha'Tzon" come to preclude
from the Mizbe'ach, an animal that raped or that was raped, one that was
designated for worship and one that was worshipped respectfully, what do we
learn from the 'Vav' in "u'min ha'Tzon"?
Answers to questions
(b) In what way do the case where the animal was designated for worship and
one that was worshipped differ from an animal that killed someone or that
raped or that was raped?
(c) In addition to the above, the Tana lists another five animals which are
forbidden to go on the Mizbe'ach, among them an Esnan Zonah, a Mechir Kelev
What is ...
(d) One of the last two items on the list is a Yotze Dofen.
- ... 'Mechir Kelev'?
- ... 'Kil'ayim'?
What is the
(a) What happens to Korbanos that get mixed up with ...
According to the Tana of our Mishnah, which are the only two Korbanos that
cannot get mixed up?
(b) In the pre-last case, who bears the loss of the excess costs?
- ... regular, unblemished Chulin?
- ... Kodshim of the same kind, but belonging to different owners?
- ... Kodshim of a different kind?
- ... a Bechor or with Ma'aser Beheimah?
(c) Besides the fact that Ma'aser and Bechor cannot be sold in order to
redeem them, two other Chumros pertain to them.
Why may the owner not
Shecht and sell them in the butchery (like one does with other Kodshim)?
(d) Which other Chumra pertains to them, for the same reason?
(a) When our Mishnah says 'Kol ha'Zevachim she'Nizbechu ... *Afilu* Achas
be'Ribu, Yamusu Kulan', what problem do we have with the word 'Afilu'?
(b) How do we interpret it?
(c) We learned in a Mishnah in Temurah 'Kol ha'Asurin Legabei Mizbe'ach
Osrin be'Chol she'Hein, ha'Rove'a ve'ha'Nirva ... '.
What does 'Osrin ...
(d) When Rav Kahana put this apparent repetition to Rav Shimi bar Ashi, what
did he reply? Having taught us this Halachah ...
- ... there, why did the Tana find it necessary to repeat it here?
- ... here, why did the Tana find it necessary to repeat it there?
(a) Considering that our Mishnah itself goes on to teach us the Halachah in
cases that are not Isurei Hana'ah, why do we then need the Mishnah in
Temurah to repeat it?
Answers to questions
(b) Then why do we need to repeat it in our Mishnah? What does our Tana add
that we do not know from the Mishnah in Temurah?
(c) What does the Mishnah in Avodah-Zarah say about Yayin Nesech and
Avodas-Kochavim that got mixed up with Heter?
(d) With reference to what we said a short while back (that our Mishnah
teaches us that the mixture is even forbidden to a Hedyot), why do we need
- ... our Mishnah to ostensibly teach us the same thing?
- ... the Mishnah there, seeing as we already know it from our Mishnah?
