Zevachim 86

ZEVACHIM 86 - Sponsored anonymously. May Hash-m provide respite to all of the prisoners and the wounded of Israel, bi'Meherah b'Yameinu.


(a) Our Mishnah precludes the bones, the nerves, the horns and the hooves of an Olah from being burned once they have been cut away from the Basar.
From where do we know that it is not a Mitzvah to do so?

(b) What is the Din regarding these parts, if they have been cut away, but they are still on the Mizbe'ach?

(c) The author of our Mishnah is Rebbi, in a Beraisa.
What do the Rabbanan there say about the bones, the nerves, the horns and the hooves of an Olah?

(d) What do they then learn from the Pasuk "Ve'asisa Olosecha ha'Basar ve'ha'Dam"? What does it come to preclude?

(a) We just cited the Beraisa, where Rebbi holds 'Pershu, Yerdu'.
How does ...
  1. ... Rebbi Zeira qualify this? What distinction does he make, based on where 'Pershu' took place?
  2. ... Rabah qualify the Din of 'Pershu, Yerdu'.
    What distinction does he make between whether the limbs concerned were separated before the Zerikah or after it?
(b) Rabah holds like Rebbi Yochanan.
What does Rebbi Yochanan in the name of Rebbi Yishmael learn from the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' "Lo Yih'yeh" (by Olah) from "Lo Yih'yeh") by Asham [both in Tzav])?

(c) Which word in the phrase "Or ha'Olah Asher Hikriv la'Kohen Lo Yih'yeh" is superfluous (rendering the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' 'Mufneh')?

(d) Why is it necessary for the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' to be Mufneh? What 'Pircha' would we otherwise have asked?

(a) Rav Ada bar Ahavah queries Rabah from a Beraisa. The Tana differentiates between the bones of (other) Kodshim before Zerikah ('Mo'alin Bahen') and after Zerikah ('Ein Mo'alin Bahen').
What does he say about the bones of the Olah?

(b) How will Rabah amend the Beraisa?

(c) Rebbi Elazar disagrees with Rabah.
What does he say about the bones of an Olah that were cut away from the Basar ...

  1. ... before the Zerikah?
  2. ... after the Zerikah?
(d) Based on Rebbi Yishmael's 'Gezeirah-Shavah', what is the basis of the Machlokes between Rabah and Rebbi Elazar?
(a) Our Mishnah states 've'Chulan she'Pak'u me'al Gabei ha'Mizbe'ach, Lo Yachzir'.
What does 've'Chulan refer to?

(b) What distinction does the Tana draw between a coal that fell off the Mizbe'ach and a limb?

(c) How does this latter Din affect the Din Me'ilah regarding the limb?

(d) What, besides the Mizbe'ach, sanctifies whatever is fit for it?

(a) Our Mishnah distinguishes between a limb that falls off the Mizbe'ach before midnight and one that falls off afterwards.
What problem do we have with this? What ought the Din to be if the limb ...
  1. ... is still intact?
  2. ... is completely burned?
(b) So how do we establish the Mishnah?
Answers to questions



(a) The Torah writes (in Tzav) 'Kol ha'Laylah Ve'hiktir' ("al Mokdah al ha'Mizbe'ach Kol ha'Laylah"), adding " ... Ve'heirim es ha'Deshen".
What is the problem with this?

(b) Based on what we just learned, how does Rav compromise the two Pesukim?

(a) What does the Mitzvah of Terumas ha'Deshen comprise?

(b) According to the Mishnah in Yoma, the Kohen would normally perform Terumas ha'Deshen at around dawn break.
When did he perform it ...

  1. ... on Yom ha'Kipurim?
  2. ... on Yom-Tov?
(c) What is the reason for bringing the time forward ...
  1. ... on Yom Kipur?
  2. ... even further on Yom-Tov?
(d) What does Rav Kahana ask from this Mishnah on Rav?
(a) Rebbi Yochanan answers this Kashya with a Kashya of his own.
What problem does he have with the Pasuk "al Mokdah ... Kol ha'Laylah ad ha'Boker ... "?

(b) How does he answer it?

(c) How does he reconcile this with Rav?

(d) What factual proof do we have that more Korbanos were brought on Yom-Tov?
