Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
Previous daf Zevachim 108
(a) What did Rava ask about a case where someone sacrificed ba'Chutz the
head of a young dove comprising less than a k'Zayis?
(b) On what grounds did Rava from Parzika query the She'eilah?
(c) How did Rav Ashi resolve the query? Why might even ...
(d) What is the outcome of Rava's She'eilah?
- ... Rebbi Yochanan concede that the grain of salt will not combine to make up the Shiur?
- ... Resh Lakish concede that it will?
(a) The Rabbanan in our Mishnah ask on Rebbi Yossi Hagelili, who rules
'Shachat ba'Chutz, ve'He'elah ba'Chutz, Patur ... ', from 'Shachat bi'Fenim
What does ...
(b) And what does Ze'iri mean when he explains that the difference between
Rebbi and Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon will manifest itself in a case where
one Shechted the Korban ba'Chutz at night-time?
- ... Rebbi mean when he answers 'Mah le'Shochet bi'Fenim u'Ma'aleh ba'Chutz, she'Kein Haysah Lo Sha'as ha'Kosher'?
- ... Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon mean when he answers 'Mah le'Shochet bi'Fenim u'Ma'aleh ba'Chutz, she'Kein Kodesh Mekablo'?
(c) How does Rabah explain the difference between Rebbi and Rebbi Elazar
(a) The Rabbanan also queried Rebbi Yossi Hagelili in the same way, when he
ruled that a Tamei person who ate a Tamei Korban is Patur (as we learned in
our Mishnah). Their proof (that the Basar becomes Tamei anyway) seems
irrefutable. What does Rebbi Yossi Hagelili hold in a case where a Tamei
person ate a Tahor Korban.
What is the source of this (unanimous) ruling?
(b) In which case then, do Rebbi Yossi Hagelili and the Rabbanan argue?
(c) The basis of their Machlokes is whether 'Isur Chal al Isur' by Isur
Kolel (the Rabbanan) or not (Rebbi Yossi Hagelili).
What makes this an
(d) We ask that even assuming that 'Ein Isur Kolel Chal al Isur', how can
Rebbi Yossi Hagelili ignore the fact that Tum'as ha'Guf is an Isur Chamur.
Why is that?
(e) How do we refute this Kashya? What Chumra does Tum'as Basar have over
(a) Our Mishnah lists the Chumros of one Avodas Chutz over the other.

- ... 'He'elah, ve'Chazar ve'He'elah, ve'Chazar ve'He'elah, Chayav'?
- ... 've'Eino Chayav ad she'Ya'aleh le'Rosh ha'Mizbe'ach'?
- ... first ruling?
- ... second ruling?
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos ...
Answers to questions
(b) And what do we learn from the Pasuk ...
- ... (in connection with Ha'ala'as Chutz) "La'asos Oso *la'Hashem*")?
- ... (in connection with Shechitas Chutz) "Ish Ish"?
- ... (in connection with Ha'ala'as Chutz) "Ish Ish"?
- ... "Dam Yechashev la'Ish ha'Hu" (in connection with Shechutei Chutz)?
(c) And what do we learn from "Lehakriv Korban *la'Hashem*" (written by
- ... "ve'Nichras ha'Ish ha'Hu" (written by Ha'ala'as Chutz)?
- ... "ve'Nichras ha'Ish ha'Hu" (written by Shechutei Chutz)?
(d) From where will we then learn that someone who sacrifices the Sa'ir
ha'Mishtale'ach outside the Azarah is Patur?
(a) According to Rebbi Shimon in a Beraisa, we need "Ish Ish" (by Ha'ala'as
Chutz) to include two people who sacrificed ba'Chutz in the Din of Ha'ala'as
Chutz, to negate a 'Kal-va'Chomer' from Shechitas Chutz that we would
otherwise have Darshened.
(b) Rebbi Yossi disagrees. He learns from "Ve'nichras ha'Ish *ha'Hu* (by
Ha'ala'as Chutz)", 'Echad ve'Lo Shenayim'.
From where does he then
preclude 'Shogeg, O'nes and Mut'ah'?
(c) And how will he explain "Ish Ish"?
(d) What does Rebbi Shimon learn from "Hu", "ha'Hu"?
(a) What does Rebbi Yossi learn from "Dam Yechashev *la'Ish ha'Hu* Dam
(b) Why does he not learn it from "Ish Ish" (like Rebbi Shimon does)?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah the Machlokes between Rebbi Shimon ('Chayav al
Kol Aliyah va'Aliyah') and Rebbi Yossi ('Eino Chayav Ela Achas').
we learn from the Pasuk (in connection with Ha'ala'as Chutz) "La'asos *Oso*
(b) According to Resh Lakish, Rebbi Shimon and Rebbi Yossi are arguing over
four or five limbs.
What is then is the basis of their Machlokes? How does
each one interpret "La'asos Oso"?
(c) In which case will even Rebbi Shimon then agree that one is only Chayav
(d) How else might we interpret 'Eiver Echad'?
(a) Rebbi Yochanan establishes the Machlokes by one limb (Mukt'ri P'nim).
What is the Machlokes, according to him?
(b) And what is the source of Rebbi Shimon, who holds Chayav?
(c) Then what does "Oso" come to preclude?
(d) And why does Rebbi Yossi then say Patur?
(e) What will both Tana'im hold in a case where one sacrificed the animal
limb by limb?
(a) Ula disagrees with Rebbi Yochanan. According to him, they agree that one
is Chayav for sacrificing Mukt'ri P'nim ba'Chutz, and they argue over
sacrificing Mukt'ri Chutz.
Why is that?
(b) What does Rebbi Shimon, who includes Mukt'ri Chutz in Ha'ala'as Chutz,
then learn from "Oso"?
(c) According to Ula's second Lashon, both Tana'im agree that one is Patur
for sacrificing a limb of Mukt'ri Chutz, and they argue over a limb of
What is then the basis of their Machlokes?
(d) Avuhah di'Shmuel declared that the Minhag to replace Pok'in (limbs that
fell off the Mizbe'ach) on to the Mizbe'ach, does not conform with the
opinion of Rebbi Yossi.
Like which Lashon of Ula must he hold?
(a) In what connection does ...
(b) Why does the Torah write ...
- ... Rav Huna quote the Pasuk "Va'yiven No'ach Mizbe'ach la'Hashem"?
- ... Rebbi Yochanan quote the Pasuk in Shoftim "Va'yikach Mano'ach es G'di ha'Izim ... Va'ya'al al ha'Tzur la'Hashem"?
(c) Alternatively, how does Rebbi Shimon in a Beraisa, extrapolate his
ruling from the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos "Mizbe'ach Pesach Ohel Mo'ed"?
- ... "Va'yiven No'ach Mizbe'ach la'Hashem", according to Rebbi Shimon?
- ... " ... Va'ya'al al ha'Tzur la'Hashem", according to Rebbi Yossi?
(d) How do we explain the continuation of the Beraisa "Lefichach, He'elah al
ha'Sela O al ha'Even, Chayav' (when it would have made more sense to have
(a) What did Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Chanina ask with reference to 'Keren,
Kevesh, Yesod and Rivu'a'?

(b) Rebbi Yirmiyah answered him with a Beraisa.
What distinction does the
Beraisa draw between a Bamah Gedolah and a Bamah Ketanah in this regard?
(c) In which two places was there a Bamah Gedolah?
