From where do we learn that the Ketores on Yom Kipur had to be doubly
(a) Why did the Kohanim ascend the ramp on the east side?
(b) Why did the Kohen Gadol ascend it in the middle, and make Kidush Yadayim
ve'Raglayim from a special golden basin - on Yom Kipur?
(a) Which two Ma'arachos had to burn daily on the Mizbe'ach ha'Olah?
(b) What was the extra Ma'arachah that they had to kindle on Yom Kipur for?
(c) What was the purpose of ...
(d) What was the extra Ma'arachah that they had to kindle on Yom Kipur for?
- ... the third daily Ma'arachah - according to Rebbi Yossi?
- ... the fourth daily Ma'arachah - according to Rebbi Meir?
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Tzav:
(b) What does Rebbi Yehudah hold regarding the number of Ma'arachos?
- ... "Hi ha'Olah al *Mokdah* al ha'Mizbe'ach ... "?
- ... "ve'Eish ha'Mizbe'ach *Tukad* Bo"?
(c) Rebbi Yossi learns the third Ma'arachah (for preserving the main
Ma'arachah) from "ve'ha'Eish al ha'Mizbe'ach *Tukad* Bo ... ".
Rebbi Yehudah learn from that Pasuk?
(d) Rebbi Yossi learns this from the same Pasuk as Rebbi Shimon: "ve'Nasnu
Aharon ha'Kohen Eish al ha'Mizbe'ach".
What does Rebbi Yehudah learn from
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Korach "Ach el K'lei ha'Kodesh ve'el
ha'Mizbe'ach Lo Yikravu"?
(b) In that case, seeing as Rebbi Yehudah has already learned that lighting
the splinters of wood must be performed on top of the Mizbe'ach, why does he
now need a Pasuk ("ve'Nasnu") to preclude Zarim (or even Kohanim without
their Bigdei Kehunah, who are also considered Zarim) from performing it?
(a) What does Rebbi Meir learn from the extra 'Vav' in "*ve*'Eish
ha'Mizbe'ach Tukad Bo"?
Answers to questions
(b) What do the other Tana'im learn from the extra 'Vav'?
(a) According to the Rabbanan of Rebbi Meir, what was done with the limbs
and the fat-pieces of yesterday's Korbanos that had not been completely
burned on the Mizbe'ach?
(b) And what did they do if there was no room on the Mizbe'ach?
(c) The Rabbanan learn this from the Pasuk "Asher Tochal es ha'Olah al
ha'Mizbe'ach" (which is not needed for the beginning of the Avodah).
does Rebbi Meir learn from this Pasuk?
(a) From where do all the Tana'im learn the extra Ma'arachah for the Ketores
on Yom Kipur?
(b) But did we not learn earlier that the Rabbanan of Rebbi Meir do not
Darshen the 'Hey'?
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk "Eish Tamid *Tukad* Bo, Lo Sichbeh"?
(b) We try to learn that the fire for the pan on Yom Kipur and the flame of
the Menorah were taken from the Mizbe'ach ha'Olah, from a 'Gezeirah-Shavah'
of "Eish" "Eish".
From where did we try to learn it?
(c) We retract from that however, because there is another way of learning
them from there.
What is it?
(d) How do we finally learn the flame for the *Menorah* from the Pasuk
"*Eish Tamid* Tukad al ha'Mizbe'ach"?
(a) How do we subsequently try to apply the previous conclusion (by Menorah)
to the fire for the Ketores on Yom Kipur?
Answers to questions
(b) We refute it in the same way as we refuted the previous attempt to learn
the two fires (for the Menorah and the Ketores on Yom Kipur) from the fire
for the Ketores (using the logic of Samuch).
How do we finally learn that
the fire for the Ketores on Yom Kipur had to be taken from the Mizbe'ach
ha'Olah from the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos "ve'Lakach Me'lo ha'Machtah Gachalei
Eish me'Al ha'Mizbe'ach *mi*'Lifnei Hashem"?
(c) Why does the Torah need to write both and "mi'Lifnei Hashem"? Let it
just write ...
- ... "me'Al ha'Mizbe'ach"?
- ... "mi'Lifnei Hashem"?
