Previous dafYoma 60
YOMA 59-88 have been dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Simcha
Bekelnitzky (Simcha Gedalya ben Shraga Feibush) of Queens N.Y. by his wife
and daughters. Well known in the community for his Chesed and Tzedakah, he
will long be remembered.
(a) We just stated categorically that whenever the Mitzvah has been
completed, Me'ilah no longer applies.
Then how will we account for the
fact that there *is* Me'ilah by the ashes of the Terumas ha'Deshen and by
the Bigdei Kohen Gadol of Yom Kipur?
(b) According to Rebbi Dosa, in whose opinion the Bigdei Kohen Gadol are
not forbidden, why is Terumas ha'Deshen not a 'Binyan Av' - to teach us
that Me'ilah *always* applies - even *after* the Mitzvah has been
(c) Similarly, according to those who maintain that we *do* learn a Binyan
Av from two sources, why do we not learn from Terumas ha'Deshen and Eglah
Arufah (according to the Rabbanan of Rebbi Dosa), that Me'ilah applies even
*after* the Mitzvah has been completed?
(a) We need one of the three Pesukim written by blood: "Lachem", "Lechaper"
and "Hu" - to preclude Kodshim whose Mitzvah has been concluded, from
Me'ilah. What do the other two come to preclude?
(b) Why do neither of them come to preclude the blood of Kodshim from
(c) We learn this from Shelamim.
How do we find these two conditions
fulfilled by Shelamim?
(a) What does the Tana of our Mishnah say regarding the Avodah of Yom Kipur
that the Torah writes in a specific sequence?
In which point do Rebbi Elazar and Rebbi Shimon disagree with the Tana
(b) What must the Kohen Gadol do ...
(c) Will the same apply if the blood spilled before he had concluded the
Matanos on the Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi?
- ... if he sprinkled the blood of the goat before that of the bull?
- ... if, before he concluded the Matanos of the bull (for example) in the Kodesh Kodshim, or those in the Heichal, the blood spilled?
(d) From where did he resume the Avodah if the blood spilled after he had
concluded the Matanos ...
- ... in the Kodesh Kodashim?
- ... in the Heichal?
(a) Rebbi Yehudah restricts the Din of our Mishnah to Avodos that the Kohen
Gadol performed *inside* the Kodesh Kodashim wearing the white garments,
but not to Avodos that he performed *outside* wearing the white garments.
To which Avodos does the latter refer?
Answers to questions
(b) Why will Rebbi Yehudah agree by the Shechitah and the Chafinah that the
order is crucial, even though they are performed outside the Kodesh
(c) Rebbi Nechemyah is more stringent than Rebbi Yehudah.
What does *he*
(a) Both Tana'im derive their respective opinions from the Pasuk "Vehaysah
Zos Lachem le'Chukas Olam Achas ba'Shanah".
What do we initially learn
from this Pasuk with which everybody agrees.
(b) Rebbi Yochanan initially explains, according to Rebbi Nechemyah that
every atonement that occured once a year was included in Chukah.
he explain Rebbi Yehudah?
(c) Why does the Gemara not like this interpretation of Rebbi Yehudah's
(d) How do we then explain Rebbi Yehudah's opinion from the words "Zos" and
(a) Rebbi Nechemyah agrees that one of the words comes to exclude all
Avodos that he performed in the Bigdei *Zahav* from 'Chukah'.
he learn from the second one?
(b) What does Rebbi Yehudah say about that?
(a) "ve'Chilah mi'Kaper es ha'Kodesh". Rebbi Akiva explains 'Im Kipar,
Kilah, ve'Im Lo Kipar, Lo Kilah'.
What does he mean?
(b) What does Rebbi Yehudah say?
(c) Rebbi Yochanan and Rebbi Yehoshua ben Levi argue over whether Rebbi
Yehudah is saying the same thing as Rebbi Akiva, or whether he really comes
to argue with him. Our Sugya holds that he comes to argue.
What is he
(d) What have we proved from here?
(a) What is the problem with Rebbi Yochanan's statement (that, according to
Rebbi Nechemyah, the Avodah of the Shirayim is not crucial)?
(b) How do we deal with this Kashya?
(a) Rebbi Chanina says that if the Kohen Gadol performed the (first)
Chafinah before Shechting the Par, he is not Yotze.
Ula says that if the Kohen Gadol Shechted the goat before having performed
the Matanos of the bull, he will have to Shecht another goat.
Can this go according
to Rebbi Yehudah?
(b) What is the problem with this from our Mishnah which says that if the
blood of the Par spilled before the Kohen Gadol had concluded the Matanos
in the Kodesh Kodashim, he must sprinkle all over again (i.e. Shecht
another bull ... )? According to Rebbi Chanina, what ought the Tana to have
(c) How do we answer this Kashya?
case, when the Tana of our Mishnah says that if he performed the Matanos of
the goat before those of the bull, he must sprinkle the blood of the goat
again - why does he not add that he must also Shecht another goat?
