ZEVACHIM 111-112 - these Dafim have been dedicated anonymously l'Iluy
Nishmas Tzirel Nechamah bas Tuvya Yehudah.
(a) We explained in our Mishnah why, in the Reisha (in the case of one Kos),
'ba'Chutz ve'Chazar va'Nasan bi'Fenim' is Chayav, but why is he Chayav in
the case of 'bi'Fenim Ve'he'elan ba'Chutz', seeing as the blood that remains
is only Shirayim?
(b) We reconcile this with the Seifa (in the case of two Kosos), where the
Tana rules 'Echad bi'Fenim ve'Echad ba'Chutz, Patur', by establishing it
like the Tana Kama of Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon.
What does he say about
the second cup in such a case?
(c) This latter Machlokes (which we already quoted in 'Kol ha'Pesulin')
concerns a case where the Kohen received the blood of a Chatas in four cups.
What happened next?
(a) The Tana compared the case of two cups to the case of someone who finds
the Chatas that became lost after he had already designated a second one.
What problem do we have with that?
(b) We answer by establishing our Mishnah like Rebbi.
does Rebbi make between the case in our Mishnah and a case where the owner
originally designated two Chata'os?
(c) Does this mean that the second animal is brought as an Olah?
(a) Nevertheless, the second Chatas is only Kasher because of a statement by
Rav Huna Amar Rav.
What did Rav Huna Amar Rav say in connection with an
'Asham she'Nitak le'Re'ayah'?
(b) How will that explain why, in the case of two Chata'os, Rebbi will
render him Chayav for the Shechitah of the second one ba'Chutz?
(c) But how can we compare the second Chatas (a female animal which is not
fit to be brought as an Olah, even Bedieved) to the Asham of Rav Huna Amar
Rav, which is a male?
(a) What do the Rabbanan say in the case of two Chata'os? In which point do
they argue with Rebbi?
***** Hadran Alach 'ha'Shochet ve'ha'Ma'aleh ****
(b) How does this answer the original Kashya? Why *does* the Mishnah find it
necessary to insert the case of two Chata'os here?
***** Perek Paras Chatas *****
(a) What does our Mishnah say about someone who Shechted a Paras Chatas or
the Sa'ir ha'Mishtale'ach, ba'Chutz?
(b) How does the Tana extrapolate this from the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos (in
connection with Shechutei Chutz) "ve'el Pesach Ohel Mo'ed Lo Hevi'o"?
(c) And what does he learn from the Pasuk there "Lifnei Mishkan Hashem"
concerning a Rove'a, Nirva, Muktzeh, Ne'evad, Mechir Kelev and Esnan Zonah?
(d) Which other three Pesulim are contained in the Tana's list?
(a) One is not Chayav for Shechting a Ba'al-Mum Kavu'a.
