Previous dafPesachim 107
(a) Why did Ameimar go hungry one Motza'ei Shabbos?
(b) What made him react differently the following year?
(c) Can one recite Havdalah over water if there is no wine?
(a) We learn from Ameimar that someone who failed to make Havdalah on
Motza'ei Shabbos may still do so the following week.
Which other two
Halachos of Havdalah do we learn from him?
(b) Why do we not include the Halachah of drinking local drinks (Chamar
Medinah), there where there is no wine - to make it *four*?
(a) What did Rav Huna ask his Rebbes about beer made from barley, figs or
berries, and what did Rebbi reply?
(b) What did Rav Huna derive from there regarding date-beer?
(c) Is there any difference between Kidush and Havdalah with regard to these
(a) Rebbi liked the date-beer that Levi sent him.
What did he then
(b) What made him change his mind?
(a) Rav Yosef took an irrevocable vow that he would not drink date-beer.
What did Rava advocate that one drinks rather than date-beer?
(b) Why, and under what circumstances, did he issue a curse of poverty on
anyone who made Kidush over beer?
(c) What did Rav ask Rav Huna when he saw him making Havdalah over beer?
(a) According to Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon, one needs to drink no more
than a Kol Shehu from the Kidush wine. The Halachah however, is like Rebbi
Yossi bar Yehudah.
Answers to questions
What does *he* say?
(b) Rav Gidal de'Min Neresh also quoted a Beraisa that holds like Rebbi
Yossi bar Yehudah. Rav Nachman bar Yitzchak claims that it is neither Rav
Gidal de'Min Neresh, nor Rav Gidal bar Menashyah etc., but Rav Gidal.
difference does it make which Rav Gidal it is?
(a) At the beginning of the Perek, we took for granted that Samuch
le'Minchah referred to Minchah Ketanah. In fact, the Gemara asks whether it
does not perhaps mean Minchah Gedolah.
Why might Chazal have forbidden
starting a meal from Samuch le'Minchah Gedolah?
(b) What reason does the Gemara give here, if the prohibition is from Samuch
(c) According to the latter side of the Sha'leh, why were the Rabbanan more
concerned about eating *Matzah* ba'Achilah Gasah, than they were about
Pesach (two reasons).
(a) King Agripa used to eat his first meal during the ninth hour each day.
How do we attempt to resolve the Sha'leh regarding which Minchah our Mishnah
is referring to, from the Beraisa, which says that even Agripas is forbidden
to eat until nightfall on Erev Pesach?
(b) What is the Gemara's counter-proof?
(c) We re-establish the original proof by saying 'Mahu de'Seima, Teisha
Sha'os le'Agripas ke'Arba Sha'os le'Didan Dami'.
What does that mean?
(a) With reference to after Samuch le'Minchah, Rav Yitzchak says 'Aval
Matbil Hu be'Miynei Targima'.
What does 'Matbil' mean, and what are
(b) Why are these permitted?
(c) Why did Rebbi Yitzchak used to eat vegetables on Erev Pesach afternoon?
(d) The Beraisa permits a Shamash (on Erev Pesach afternoon) to serve the
guests B'nei Me'ayim.
Which B'nei Me'ayim did he serve them?
(a) What does the Gemara prove from the Pasuk in Yirmiyah "Niyru Lachem Nir,
ve'Al Tizre'u El Kotzim"?
Answers to questions
(b) Why is one permitted to drink wine between the first and second, and
second and third cups of wine, but not, between the third and fourth cup?
(c) Why does Rava cite this Mishnah (from Daf 117b) here?
