SUKA 36-56 (End of Maseches) have been dedicated by the wife and daughters
of the late Dr. Simcha Bekelnitzky (Simcha Gedalya ben Shraga Feibush) of
Queens N.Y. Well known in the community for his Chesed and Tzedakah, he will
long be remembered.
1) R. ACHA AND THE TEKI'OS FOR EACH MUSAF (cont'd)
(a) Question (Bereisa cited by Rava b. Shmuel): We are
taught (based on uv'Roshei Chodsheichem) that we do
*not* blow Teki'os on each Musaf!?
2) RECITING KORBANOS IN CHUTZ LA'ARETZ
(b) Answer: This refutes R. Acha.
1. Question: How does uv'Roshei Chodsheichem imply
that we do not blow for each Musaf?
(c) Question (another Beraisa cited against R. Acha): We
see that only one Shir (and, by extension, one set of
Teki'os) is said on Shabbos!?
2. Answer (Abaye): It teaches that all Roshei
Chodoshim are alike, even if it falls on Shabbos
with its additional Musaf.
3. Answer (R. Ashi): Chodsheichem (written singular)
contrasts with Roshei (plural) to teach that the
day with two "heads" ie. Rosh HaShanah, has one
(d) Answer: This also refutes R. Acha.
(e) Question: But R. Acha based himself in a Pasuk and a
(f) Answer (Ravina): The Beraisa (HaKol l'Fi HaMusafin)
teaches that we must extend the nine Teki'os.
(g) Answer (Rabbis of Keisari citing R. Acha): It teaches
that there are more players when there are two
(a) Question: How are we to allocate the recitation of the
Korbanos in Chutz La'Aretz (two days of YomTov)!?
(b) Answer (Abaye): The recitation of Day Two is omitted.
(c) Answer (Rava): Day Seven is omitted, and a Beraisa
supports Rava (we see that Yimotu is omitted).
(d) Ameimar instituted in Naharda'a that the two (possible)
days are mentioned on each day of Chol HaMoed.
3) MISHNAH: THE ALLOCATION OF THE KORBANOS TO THE MISHMAROS
(a) The formula for allocating the Korbanos to the 24
Mishmaros is given and applied to each day.
4) SHEMINI ATZERES
1. Each day, one less Mishmar participates in the
(b) The Korbanos of Shemini Atzeres are allocated by lots.
2. The 14 Kevasim are then divided into the remaining
Mishmaros, with the maximum number of Mishmaros
being given two Kevasim.
(c) The Parim are allocated to those who had not yet
(a) Question: The Mishnah (which seems to mandate lots
between all the Mishmaros on Shemini Atzeres) appears
to be the opinion of Rebbi.
5) SEVENTY AND ONE OFFERINGS
1. Rebbi allows that the Payis is among all the
(b) Answer: The Mishnah does not necessarily mean that all
the Mishamros were involved, since the remaining two
Mishmaros also needed a Payis!
2. Chachamim maintain that only the two Mishmaros
which had not received three Parim drew lots.
(c) Question: The statement which says that all but two
Mishmaros received three Parim seems to be consistent
with Rebbi (since according to Chachamim one of those
two Mishmaros received the Korban Shemini Atzeres)!?
(d) Answer: It refers to those who did not receive a third
during Sukos itself (not altogether).
1. Question: Of what Chidush is this Beraisa?
2. Answer: It teaches that the ones who received
Parim one day did not do so the next day.
(a) (R. Elazar) The 70 Parim are to atone for the 70
nations of the world.
6) MISHNAH: ALLOCATING THE MATANOS AMONG THE MISHMAROS
(b) The one Par of Shemini Atzeres is associated with the
One Nation, alone (Mashal to the King...).
(c) (R. Yochanan) The Nations don't know what they lost now
that there is none to atone for them.
(a) On the three Regalim all Mishmaros shared in all of the
Matanos (including the Eimurei Regalim, the Lechem
HaPanim [Matzah] and the Shtei HaLechem [Chametz] on
(b) The one distributing the Lechem said, 'here is your
Matzah, here is your Chametz.'
(c) The Mishmar whose week falls on the Regel receives the
Temidim, Nedarim, Nedavos and other Korbanos Tzibur.
(d) That Mishmar offers everything.
