ZEVACHIM 7 (16 Sivan) - This Daf has been dedicated l'Zecher Nishmas Reb
Avrohom ben Reb Shmuel Teichman by his son Mr. Sidney Teichman, by Mrs. Leah
Teichman, by Mrs. Tzipora Lieber, by Mrs. Amy Kornfeld and by Mr. Berish
(a) According to Rav Idi bar Avin ... Amar Rebbi Yochanan, Rebbi Shimon
holds that Temidin that are not needed cannot be redeemed without a blemish,
whereas the Rabbanan hold that they can.
What is the basis of their
(b) What did Rebbi Yosef b'rei de'Rav Shemayah ask from here on Rav Papa's
(a) When Rebbi Yirmiyah asked Rebbi Zeira why, having received the blood of
the two goats of Shevu'os in two separate vessels, and having already
sprinkled the blood of the first one, they needed to sprinkle the blood of
the second one, what did the latter reply?
(b) And what does Rebbi Yosef b'rei de'Rav Shemayah infer from the fact that
Rebbi Yirmiyah asked his Kashya with reference to an Asei after the
(c) What problem does that create with the alternative explanation in Rebbi
Shimon (that we discussed above [that the Pasuk speaks when they designated
the two goats at two different times])?
(d) Rav Papa (had no answer to the first Kashya). He answered the second
Kashya however 'Dilma Im Timtzi Lomar ka'Amar'.
What did he mean by that?
(e) How does that answer the Kashya? What is now the outcome of the initial
(a) Rabah validates Reuven's Todah that was Shechted on behalf of Shimon
(who is also obligated to bring a Todah). Rav Chisda invalidates it.
is the basis of their Machlokes?
(b) Rabah learns his ruling from a Beraisa.
Why does Aba Chanin in the
name of Rebbi Eliezer validate a Todah that was Shechted as a Shelamim?
(c) Rabah extrapolates from there that a Todah as a Todah is definitely
How do we counter Rabah's proof?
(d) Then why does the Tana need to add that [his] Shelamim le'Shem Todah is
Pasul? Why did he not conclude that even a Todah for [someone else's] Todah
is Pasul, how much more so [his] one Todah as another Todah'?
(a) We already discussed Rava's statement (earlier we cited it in the name
of Rav Yehudah Amar Rav) 'Chatas she'Shachtah le'Shem Chatas Kesheirah,
le'Shem Olah, Pesulah'.
What does he mean by 'Chatas ... le'Shem Chatas'?
(b) From which Pasuk in Vayikra does he learn his dual ruling?
(c) And what does Rava extrapolate from the Pasuk "Ve'chiper Alav" with
regard to Reuven's Chatas that is Shechted as Shimon's on the one hand, and
as Shimon's Olah, on the other?
(d) Like whom does Rava hold in the previous dispute, Rabah or Rav Chisda?
(a) Based on the previous case, why does Rava then rule that a Chatas that
was Shechted for no particular sin, is Pasul?
Answers to questions
(b) On what basis does Rava explain that a Chatas atones for Chayvei Asei?
(c) Rava also said that a Chatas that was Shechted for someone who is Chayav
an Olah is Kasher.
Why is that?
(d) Then why does he rule Pasul in the current case?
(a) We already discussed Rava's statement forbidding sprinking an Olah
she'Lo li'Shemah, even after having Shechted it she'Lo li'Shemah. He also
invalidates an Olah that is Shechted with Shinuy Kodesh after the owner's
What does he say about such an Olah that is Shechted with Shinuy
(b) What did Rav Pinchas b'rei de'Rav Ami say?
(c) Rav Ashi questioned what he meant by that.
What are the ramifications
of Rav Ashi's query? What does Rav Pinchas mean if we take his words ...
(d) What did Rav Pinchas b'rei de'Rav reply?
- ... literally?
- ... with a pinch of salt?
(a) We have learned that an Olah comes to atone for an Asei or a La'av
What problem do we have with that, assuming the sinner
(b) How does Rebbi Shimon in a Beraisa, explain the sequence of first
Chatas, then Olah, that pertains to most cases where both are required?
- ... did not do Teshuvah?
- ... did Teshuvah? What does the Beraisa say about this?
(c) This Beraisa serves as a proof for a statement of Rava.
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Re'ei ...
(b) Why do we initially think that the Pasuk there needs to add "Ve'zavachta
Pesach la'Hashem Elokecha"?
- ... "Sh'mor es Chodesh ha'Aviv, Ve'asisa Pesach"?
- ... "Va'amartem Zevach Pesach Hu"?
(c) What objection do we raise to this D'rashah?
(a) What problem does Rav Nachman Amar Rabah bar Avuhah have with the
continuation of the Pasuk "Tzon u'Vakar"?
(b) What does he in fact, learn from it?
(c) So Rav Safra concludes that "Ve'zavachta Pesach ... " teaches us Rav
Nachman's Din, and "Sh'mor es Chodesh ha'Aviv, Ve'asisa Pesach" and
"Va'amartem Zevach Pesach", Shinuy Kodesh and Shinuy Ba'alim respectively.
What do we then learn from "(Zevach Pesach) Hu"?
(d) And he learns all the other Avodos by Pesach from Shechitah, with the
S'vara of 'Ho'il Ve'gali Gali'.
What does Rav Ashi say about that?
(a) From which Pasuk then, does Rav Ashi learn all the other Avodos?
(b) Which Korbanos does the continuation of the Pasuk "be'Yom Tzavoso es
B'nei Yisrael Le'hakriv es Korbeneihem" come to include?
(c) How does he initially learn all three from Shelamim?
(a) How does Rav Ashi go on to learn Pesach exclusively from the same
Answers to questions
(b) Seeing as he now learns Shinuy Kodesh and Shinuy Ba'alim (by Pesach)
Lechatchilah from " ... Le'hakriv es Korbeneihem", from where does he now
(c) Which of the previous D'rashos is now superfluous?
(d) We therefore conclude that "Hu" by the Korban Pesach comes to preclude
from Rebbi Eliezer's interpretation of "Hu" by Asham.
What did Rebbi
Yehoshua say to Rebbi Eliezer, who Darshened from the latter "Hu" that an
Asham she'Lo li'Shemo is Pasul?
