prepared by Rabbi Eliezer Chrysler
Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
Previous dafYoma 8
(a) What do both Rebbi Yehudah and Rebbi Shimon learn from "Al Mitzcho"?
(b) So what does Rebbi Shimon learn from "Al Metzach ve'Nasa"?
(c) Rebbi Yehudah learns this from the extra 'Vav' in Mitzcho.
Rebbi Shimon do with the extra 'Vav'?
(a) On Daf 4a, we quoted a Beraisa which obligated the Kohen who prepares
the Parah Adumah to be sprinkled with the ashes of all the cows that had
been used to date on each of the seven days of Hafrashah. That is the
opinion of Rebbi Meir.
What does Rebbi Yossi hold?
(b) How do we initially try to explain their Machlokes?
(c) What is the reasoning behind each one's statement?
(d) On what grounds does the Gemara repudiate this explanation?
(a) We conclude that in fact, both Tana'im hold 'Tum'ah Dechuyah Hi
Then what is the basis of their Machlokes?
(b) Rebbi Yossi permits someone who has the Name of Hashem written on his
skin to Tovel without the need to tie a string around it.
What does the
Tana Kama say, and what is the basis of their Machlokes?
(c) Then how will we explain the reason of Rebbi Yossi, who does not require
Haza'ah every day for the Kohen who prepares the Parah Adumah?
(a) What do we learn from the juxtaposition of "ve'Ibadtem es Shemam" to "Lo
Sa'asun Kein la'Hashem Elokeichem"?
Answers to questions
(b) Rebbi Meir and Rebbi Yossi (in 2a) argue whether they sprinkled the
Kohen Gadol on all *seven* days or only on *two*, both with regard to the
Kohen who prepared the cow and the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kipur.
compromise does Rebbi Chanina S'gan ha'Kohanim make?
(c) Assuming that he does not compare Haza'ah to Tevilah (like Rebbi Yossi),
why does he require Haza'ah on each of the seven days by the Kohen who
prepares the Parah?
(a) According to the Tana of the Beraisa, the only difference between the
Hafrashah of the Kohen who prepares the Parah Adumah and the Kohen Gadol on
Yom Kipur is that - whereas the former's separation is for Taharah purposes,
the latter's is to attain additional Kedushah.
What does this mean
(b) Who cannot be the author of this Beraisa?
(a) What is the problem with sprinkling him on the *fourth* day, according
to Rebbi Meir, who says that the Kohen had to be sprinkled on each of the
seven days of Hafrashah?
(b) How do we use Shabbos to answer this Kashya?
(c) Resulting from this, what distinction do we make (date-wise) regarding
the date on which the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kipur is separated and that on
which the Kohen who prepares the Parah Adumah is separated?
(a) Initially, the room designated for the Hafrashah of the Kohen Gadol was
called 'Lishkas Belavti'.
What does that mean?
(b) Why did they change its name to 'Lishkas Farhedrin'?
(a) Which two Matnos Kehunah did Chazal obligate bakers to give from the
produce that they purchased from Amei ha'Aretz?
Answers to questions
(b) Why did they not obligate them to give ...
(c) Why do they remain exempted from giving Ma'aser Sheini?
- ... Terumah Gedolah (nor did they obligate anyone else)?
- ... Ma'aser Rishon and Ma'aser Ani (though they *were* obligated to separate them)?
(d) How do Chazal have the right to exempt them?
