(a) In which regard do we learn Pesach from Ma'aser?
(b) They asked Rav Sheishes whether an Areil is permitted to eat Ma'aser
Sheini. If we can learn Pesach from Ma'aser with regard to Onan, why might

(whether an Areil is permitted to eat Ma'aser Sheini or not) from the above
(b) On which principle is our rejection of this proof based?

What does 'Chayavin be'Bi'ur' mean?

one receive Malkos for eating them when they (the fruits) are Tamei?
(c) What is the Din by Terumah in these last two regards? Why does the Tana
not add these two distinctions to the above list of differences?

Areil), and Ma'aser (which is permitted).
(a) In the Pasuk in Re'ei "Lo Suchal le'Echol bi'She'arecha Ma'aser Degancha
... u'S'rumas Yadecha", what does "T'rumas Yadecha" refer to? Why can it not
refer to Terumah?
(b) What does the Tana Kama learn from the Hekesh of Bikurim to Ma'aser?
(c) On what basis does Rebbi Shimon permit Bikurim to an Onan?
(d) And what is the basis of the Machlokes between Rebbi Shimon, who exempts
Bikurim from Bi'ur, and the Rabbanan, who include them in the obligation?
(a) What does Rebbi Shimon (and the Rabbanan) learn from the Pasuk in Ki
Savo (by Ma'aser Sheini) "ve'Lo Bi'arti Mimenu be'Tamei"?

ve'ha'Tahor Yachdav ka'Tz'vi ve'cha'Ayal"?
(d) And what do we then learn from the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' "She'arecha" (in
the Pasuk that we just quoted) "She'arecha" (in the Pasuk "Lo Suchal
le'Echol bi'She'arecha Ma'aser Degancha")?
(a) What does Rebbi Avahu Amar Rebbi Yochanan infer from the Pasuk "ve'Lo
Bi'arti *Mimenu* be'Tamei"?

(c) In fact, Kodshim has six Chumros over Terumah, whereas Terumah has only
four Chumros over Kodshim.
What is the meaning of the acronym ...
