Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
1) The Gemara has established the case of 'she'Lo le'Ratzon' by olives and grapes, which renders the juice Tahor - to be taken literally. How could we explain 'she'Lo le'Ratzon' to mean Stam, and still conform with the opinion of Rebbi Yehudah?
2) The Gemara proves from the Beraisa which permits squeezing plums, quinces and sorb-apples, that the Rabbanan agree with Rebbi Yehudah - that the juice which comes out from other fruits is permitted. How do we know that the author of this Beraisa is not Rebbi Yehudah (exclusively)?
(a) The Tana forbids squeezing pomegranates, because they used to squeeze pomegranates in the house of Menasheh bar Menachem.4) Rav Papa rejects the connection between Rav Chisda and the Tana of the Beraisa. On what grounds does he do that?
5) Does one require *three Lugin* of colored liquid for the Mikvah to be disqualified?
(a) The first oil which emerges from the olives is Tahor. The oil that emerges after the stage called 'Ikul Beis ha'Bad' is Tamei.7)
(a) In the Gemara's first answer, who is the author of the Mishnah in Mikva'os, which writes 'Nafal Letochan Yayin, O Chometz *O Mohel*, ve'Shinah Mar'av, Pasul'?8)
(a) Why does Shmuel permit squeezing a bunch of grapes into a dish which contains food?9)
(a) The Mishnah in Taharos rules that if a Tamei Mes squeezed olives or grapes which are exactly a k'Beitzah, the oil remains Tahor.
