Zevachim 120

ZEVACHIM 120 - anonymously dedicated by an Ohev Torah and Marbitz Torah in Baltimore, Maryland, formerly of Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel.


(a) What does Rebbi Zeira ask in connection with an Olas Bamas Yachid that was taken into the confines of a Bamas Tzibur after the Shechitah, and then taken out again?

(b) We try to connect this She'eilah to the following Machlokes Amora'im.
What does the Mishnah in Me'ilah say about Kodshei Kodshim that are Shechted in the south of the Azarah?

(c) What is the Chidush? Why might we have thought otherwise?

(d) Rabah maintains that if they were subsequently taken up on the Mizbe'ach, 'Im Alu Yerdu'.
What does Rav Yosef say?

(a) How do we try to resolve our She'eilah based on the Machlokes between Rabah and Rav Yosef?

(b) We reject this suggestion however.
Why might ...

  1. ... Rabah confine his ruling to the case of the Mizbe'ach in the Beis-Hamikdash (conceding that in our case, we will say 'Keivan she'Hichnisah, Kaltah Lah Mechitzos')?
  2. ... Rav Yosef confines his ruling to the case of Mizbe'ach (conceding that in our case, we will say 'Keivan de'Hadar, Hadar')?
(c) What was obvious to Rabah (one way) and Rav Yosef (the other), was not so obvious to Rebbi Yanai.
What does he ask in connection with the limbs of a Bamas Yachid?

(d) We remain with a She'eilah ('Teiku'), though we do qualify the She'eilah.
In which case is it obvious that 'Im Alu, Lo Yerdu'?

(a) What do Rav and Shmuel say about Shechitas Laylah by a Bamah Ketanah?

(b) Rebbi Elazar referred to an apparent discrepancy between two Pesukim in Shmuel (in connection with Shechitas Laylah ... ).
Which discrepancy?

(c) How do Rav and Shmuel answer the Kashya? If one of them distinguishes between Kodshim and Chulin, what distinction does the other one make?

(a) According to Rav, Kodshei Bamas Yachid do not require Hefshet and Nitu'ach.
What does Rebbi Yochanan say?

(b) They argue over a statement by Rebbi Yossi Hagelili.
What does Rebbi Yossi Hagelili say about the Olah which Yisrael brought in the desert? What does he mean by 'the desert'?

(c) He concludes his statement with 'she'Ein Hefshet ve'Nitu'ach Ela me'Ohel Mo'ed. Rebbi Yochanan takes Rebbi Yossi Hagelili to the letter.
How does Rav qualify his words?

(a) After listing the differences between a Bamah Gedolah and a Bamah Ketanah, the Beraisa (which we cited already in 'ha'Shochet ve'ha'Ma'aleh' lists the Halachos that they share.
What does the Tana say about ...
  1. ... Kiyor ve'Kano?
  2. ... Shechitah?
  3. ... Hefshet ve'Nitu'ach?
  4. ... Dam Matir u'Mefagel?
(b) What does this Beraisa prove?
Answers to questions



(a) We learned in our Mishnah that Z'man and Nosar apply equally to a Bamah Gedolah and a Bamah Ketanah.
How would we learn otherwise from a 'Binyan Av' from Yotzei, which is not Pasul by a Bamah Ketanah? In which way is Nosar compared to Yotzei?

(b) How do we know that Yotzei is not Pasul by a Bamah Ketanah?

(c) How do we now attempt to learn Lan from Yotzei?

(a) We refute this Limud however, by learning a 'Kal va'Chomer' from Ofos. In which Halachah are Kodshei Bamas Yachid more stringent than Ofos?

(b) What is then the 'Kal-va'Chomer'?

(a) What Pircha do we ask on this 'Kal-va'Chomer'.
Which stringency do Ofos have that Kodshei Bamas Yachid don't?

(b) How do we finally learn the Din of Z'man from the Pasuk in Tzav "ve'Zos Toras Zevach ha'Shelamim"?

(c) On what grounds do we confine this Limud specifically to Z'man, and not to all the other Dinim of Shelamim?

(d) And what is the source to extend this ruling to ...

  1. ... Nosar?
  2. ... Tamei?
