Zevachim 73


(a) The Beraisa discusses a Litra of dried Terumah figs that the owner pressed on top of an Igul (a large round vessel), a barrel or a beehive, but does not know which one.
Why are dried figs called 'Ketzi'os'?

(b) Rebbi Meir citing Rebbi Eliezer is very lenient with regard to Bitul in this case.
What does he say?

(c) Rebbi Yehoshua disagrees.
How many barrels does he require for the Terumah to become Bateil?

(a) According to Rebbi Yehudah, the last ruling is really that of Rebbi Eliezer, and Rebbi Yehoshua is more stringent still.
What does he say?

(b) What is Rebbi Yehoshua's reason?

(c) The Seifa of the Beraisa discusses a case where the Terumah figs in an Igul become Bateil, even according to Rebbi Yehoshua.
What is the case?

(a) Rav Ashi establishes our Mishnah (where the Chatas she'Meisah is not Bateil) even according to the Rabbanan of Rebbi Meir who, with regard to Chavilei Tilsan, hold neither 'Kol she'Darko Limanos' nor 'es she'Darko Limanos'.
Why then, is the Chatas not Bateil among the other Korbanos?

(b) On what grounds do we ...

  1. ... ask why it is not possible to take one animal at a time and bring it on the Mizbe'ach?
  2. ... refute this suggestion? Which principle negates it?
(c) What could we do to circumvent the problem of 'Kavu'a'? What is the governing principle in such a case?

(d) What is then the problem with our Mishnah?

Answers to questions



(a) Rava initially answers that we are afraid that ten Kohanim may come simultaneously and sacrifice them.
What does he mean by that? How does this answer the Kashya?

(b) What objection do we raise to ...

  1. ... this answer?
  2. ... the suggestion that perhaps ten Kohanim will come and take ten animals from the moving herd and Shecht them simultaneously?
(c) Rava finally answers 'Mishum Kavu'a'.
What does he mean by that?
(a) What does Rava say about a case where, following the correct procedure, a Kohen takes one of the animals and brings it on the Mizbe'ach?

(b) According to some opinions, 'Kol Kavu'a ... ' here is not d'Oraysa.
Why not?

(a) Rav Huna bar Yehudah queries Rava from a Beraisa.
What does the Beraisa say about a Chatas that got mixed up with Olos or vice-versa?

(b) How do we know that the Tana is speaking about birds, and not animals?

(c) What does the Tana go on to say about where the Kohen took the initiative and brought ...

  1. ... all the birds above the Chut ha'Sikra or below it?
  2. ... half the birds above the Chut and half below it?
(d) Why does this last case pose a Kashya on Rava?
(a) How will Rava reconcile his ruling with the Beraisa?

(b) In what way are Shechted animals different than live ones regarding the Din of Dichuy?

(c) In a case where the limbs of a Ba'al-Mum became mixed up with those of unblemished Olos, what does Rebbi Eliezer in a Mishnah in Perek T'vul-Yom say, if the Kohen brought one of the heads?

(d) Why is that?

(a) What problem does this Mishnah create for Rava?

(b) We answer that Rebbi Eliezer holds like Chanan ha'Mitzri.
What does Chanan ha'Mitzri say about a case where the Sa'ir ha'Mishtale'ach died and the blood of the Sa'ir la'Hashem was already in the Kos (ready for sprinkling)?

(c) What do the other Tana'im hold in such a case?
