Ask A Question on the daf
Previous dafPesachim 99
1) SILENCE IS GOLDEN
(a) If he spoke to them and they spoke to him... could even lead to
both Korbanos being burnt.
2) A MINIMUM NUMBER OF OWNERS OF THE KORBAN
(b) If neither spoke to the other, they can each eat from their
(c) The conclusion: Silence is good for the wise, all the more so for
the foolish, as indicated by the Pasuk.
(a) Question: Are we to say that our Mishnah is not compatible with
the position of R. Yehudah?
**HADRAN ALACH MI SHEHAYA**
1. [R. Yehudah] At least one original member of the Korban must
remain appointed to the Korban.
(b) Answer: [R. Yochanan]: R. Yehudah's holds that a Pesach may not
be brought for one person, such that the original person was
destined to be joined by a second, who is then considered one of
the original members.
2. [R. Yosi] Only one person need be appointed to the Korban,
even if he is not one of the original appointees.
3. Our Mishnah seems to indicate the "new" person can be the
only appointee at one point.
(c) This seems indicated by the clause in the Mishnah "Five Chaburos
each of five appointees," and not 'five Chaburos each with *four*
*****PEREK ARVEI PESACHIM*****
1) MISHNAH: PREPARING FOR PESACH
(a) One should not eat from the late afternoon until HeSeibah.
2) EATING BEFORE NIGHTFALL
(b) One should not have less than four cups of wine, even if that
wine is given him by the charity allocation.
(a) Question: Why single out Erev Pesach?
1. The same rule applies to Erev Shabbos and YomTov!
(b) Answer #1 [R. Huna]: We are taught this law here for R. Yosi.
2. The Bereisa gives the reason [R. Yehudah] so that he should
come to the meal with an appetite.
3. R. Yosi holds that he may eat until nightfall.
1. His leniency would only apply to Erev Shabbos and YomTov,
not to Erev Pesach.
(c) Answer #2: The singling out is needed even according to R.
Yehudah, as the other eves of Shabbos and YomTov are restricted
from Minchah onward, not from close to Minchah.
2. This is on account of the Mitzvah of Matzah.
(d) Question: But the Bereisa teaches that R. Yehudah restricts
eating on a regular Erev Shabbos from nine hours of the day!
(e) Answer: [Mar Zutra] This Bereisa is inaccurate!
