ZEVACHIM 107 - sponsored by Kenny and Aliza Weinblatt in honor of the birth
of their son Binyomin Yitzchok - may he grow to excel in Torah and Yir'as
(a) The two 'Gezeirah-Shavahs' (of Rebbi Yochanan and Rava) both refer to
'Shechutei P'nim' that were taken outside and burned. What does Rav
Kahana try and learn from the Pasuk "va'Aleihem Tomar" (the opening words of
(b) How does Rabah refute this explanation, based on the spelling of the
(c) So we cite Tana de'Bei Yishmael, who learns it from "va'Aleihem Tomar"
in spite of the spelling.
How does he do that?
(d) Where does Rebbi Yochanan learn it from?
(a) What problem does Rav Bibi bar Abaye have with the fact that there are
now two cases of Ha'ala'ah, from the Mishnah in Kerisus, which lists
(b) We suggest that perhaps the Tana lists all 'Ha'ala'os' as one.
precedent do we have for that in Kerisus?
(c) Then why do we not give that answer here?
(a) Later in the Perek, we will learn 'ha'Zorek Miktzas Damim ba'Chutz,
Rebbi Yishmael learns the Chiyuv of 'Zorek ba'Chutz' from the
Pasuk in Acharei-Mos "Dam Yechashev" (written in the Parshah of Shechutei
Chutz), and Rebbi Akiva, from "O Zevach" (written in connection with
Ha'ala'as Chutz, from which Rebbi Yishmael earns 'Lechalek'.
(b) Rebbi Akiva learns 'Lechalek' from "Lo Yevi'enu", whilst Rebbi Yishmael
learns from there 'al ha'Shalem Hu Chayav, ve'Eino Chayav al ha'Chaser'.
This might refer to part of a limb, or to part of an animal.
might it refer to?
(c) Rebbi Akiva learns that from "La'asos Oso", whereas Rebbi Yishmael uses
this as a second Pasuk to exempt him in a case of Chaser.
Why does he need
two Pesukim for this?
(d) What does Rebbi Akiva say about Chaser by 'Mukteri P'nim'?
(a) And what does Rebbi Akiva learn from "Dam Yechashev"? What does it come
to include in the Din of Shechutei Chutz?
(b) If Rebbi Yishmael learns this from "O Asher Yishchat", what does Rebbi
Akiva learn from there?
(c) Why do we need a Pasuk to preclude Melikas Chutz, seeing as the Torah
has only mentioned Shechitah?
(d) Rebbi Yishmael learns that from "Zeh ha'Davar".
What does Rebbi Akiva
learn from there?
(a) What will be the Din if someone performs the Kemitzah of a Minchah or
the Kabalas ha'Dam of a Korban outside the Azarah?
Answers to questions
(b) We query why the Mishnah needs to teach us this.
Why could we not
learn it from ...
(c) What do we learn from the fact that the Torah specifically includes
'Zerikas Chutz' in the Chiyuv (as we learned earlier)?
- ... Shechitah?
- ... Zerikah?
(a) Rebbi Avahu maintains that if someone Shechted and performed Zerikah on
a Korban ba'Chutz, he is Chayav one Korban according to Rebbi Yishmael, and
two according to Rebbi Akiva.
Why is that?
(b) Abaye disagrees with Rebbi Avahu. What does he learn from the Pasuk in
Re'ei "Sham Ta'aleh Olosecha, ve'Sham Ta'aseh"?
(c) By the same token, Rebbi Avahu continues, if he both performed Zerikah
and sacrificed the Korban ba'Chutz, he will be Chayav two Korbanos, whereas
according to Rebbi Akiva, he will be Chayav only one.
On what grounds does
Abaye again dispute Rebbi Avahu's ruling, based on the same Pasuk "Sham
Ta'aleh Olosecha, ve'Sham Ta'aseh"?
(d) What did Rebbi Avahu conclude with regard to a case where someone
Shechted, performed Zerikah and sacrificed the Korban ba'Chutz?
(e) What does Abaye say to that?
(a) The Beraisa discusses the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos (in connection with
Why might we have thought that "Asher Yishchat mi'Chutz
la'Machaneh" means outside the three Machanos?
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk ...
(c) How do we learn that from there?
- ... "O Eiz Asher Yishchat"?
- ... "O el mi'Chutz la'Machaneh"?
(a) According to Ula, someone who Shechts on the roof of the Heichal is
Chayav for Shechutei Chutz.
Why is that?
(b) How does Rava query this from the Pasuk "ve'el Pesach Ohel Mo'ed Lo
(c) How do we counter Rava's Kashya? What problem do we have with
"ba'Machaneh" and "mi'Chutz la'Machaneh", according to him?
(d) If indeed, we include the roof of the Heichal in the Isur from
"ba'Machaneh", as the current Kashya suggests, and exclude the south of the
Azarah from "mi'Chutz la'Machaneh", what will we learn from "ve'el Pesach
Ohel Mo'ed ... ."?
(a) Rav Mari vindicates Rava. "ve'el Pesach Ohel Mo'ed ... ", he explains,
comes to preclude someone who Shechts on the roof of the Heichal, "Mi'chutz
la'Machaneh" to preclude the south of the Azarah, and "ba'Machaneh" to
include where the animal is standing inside the Azarah, but its neck is
What objection do we raise to this explanation?
(b) So how do we amend Rav Mari's words?
(a) According to Rebbi Yochanan, someone who sacrifices a Korban nowadays,
is Chayav because of Ha'ala'as Chutz.
What does Resh Lakish say?

Heichal and the Azaros of the second Beis-Hamikdash?
(d) What distinguished the two?
(a) Based on what Rebbi Yehoshua heard, what did they used to do, even
though there was no ...
(b) What is Rebbi Yehoshua's reason?
- ... Beis-Hamikdash?
- ... hangings around the Azarah?
- ... wall surrounding Yerushalayim?
(a) What do we initially assume Rebbi Eliezer holds? How does that explain
Rebbi Eliezer's statement?
(b) How do we reject this latter assumption? What does Rebbi Eliezer hold
regarding 'Kedushah Rishonah'?
(c) Then what was the purpose of the curtains?
(a) According to Rebbi Yochanan, someone who sacrifices ba'Chutz a limb that
does not contain a k'Zayis of Basar, but the bone complements the Shi'ur, is
