Previous daf Makos 18
MAKOS 16-20 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi publications
for these Dafim for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.
(a) We conclude that in fact, the entire Pasuk of "Lo Suchal Le'echol
bi'She'arecha ... " is superfluous. What makes it superfluous?
(b) What ought the Torah to have then written, to teach us Chutz le'Chomah?
(c) What are the ramifications of this D'rashah? What do we then learn from
the extra La'av by ..
(d) From where does our Mishnah then learn Malkos for eating Kodshei Kodshim
outside the hangings of the Azarah?
- ... each of the Korbanos?
- ... Bikurim?
(a) Why would it have sufficed to write "Lo Suchal le'Ochlam" to subject
each of the La'avin to Malkos? Why would that not be a 'La'av
(b) What is then a 'La'av she'bi'Kelalus'?
(a) We cited Rava who lists five Isurim by a Zar who eats a piece of Olah
before the Zerikah outside the walls of Yerushalayim.
Why does he not
include the La'av of "ve'Zar Lo Yochal Ki Kodesh Heim" (written in Tetzaveh,
in connection with the Korbonos of the Shiv'as Yemei ha'Milu'im, which were
Kodshei Kodshim) in the list?
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Mishpatim "u'Basar ba'Sadeh Tereifah
(c) Then why does Rava not include this La'av in the list?
(a) What does Rebbi Eliezer Darshen from the Pasuk in Tetzaveh (in
connection with Nosar) "Lo Ye'achel Ki Kodesh Hu"?
Answers to questions
(b) Then why does Rava not reckon this La'av together with the other six?
(c) Finally, we ask why Rava does not include the La'av of "Kalil Tiheyeh Lo
Te'achel" (Parshas Tzav).
What do we answer?
(a) What does Rav Gidal Amar Rav initially learn from the Pasuk in Tetzaveh
"Ve'achlu Osam Asher Kupar Bahem" with regard to a Kohen who ate from a
Chatas ve'Asham before the Zerikah?
(b) Why is that, considering that this Pasuk constitutes an Asei and not a
(c) What do we prove from the fact that the Torah writes in Re'ei "Ach es
Zeh Lo Sochlu mi'Ma'alei ha'Geirah ... ", after having written "ve'Chol
Beheimah Mafreses Parsah ... Osah Tocheilu"? What problem does this create
for Rav Gidal Amar Rav?
(d) In fact, we conclude, what Rav Gidal Amar Rav really said was that a
Kohen who ate from a Chatas ve'Asham before the Zerikah does *not* receive
Malkos because of "ve'Zar Lo Yochal Ki Kodesh Heim".
How does he
extrapolate this ruling from the Pasuk "ve'Achlu Osam Asher Kupar Bahem"?
(a) What does Rebbi Elazar Amar Rebbi Hoshaya say about Bikurim that were
separated before Sukos and left until after Sukos?
(b) Why is that?
(c) How do we reconcile this with another statement of Rebbi Elazar Amar
Rebbi Hoshaya, where he considers Hanachah as being crucial to the Mitzvah,
but not Keri'ah?
(d) What did Rebbi Zeira about someone who brings sixty-one Isaron for his
(a) Rebbi Asi asked Rebbi Yochanan from when the Kohanim are permitted to
eat Bikurim. He replied that Bikurim that are subject to Keri'ah, from after
What did he mean by 'Bikurim that are subject to Keri'ah'?
(b) What did he say about Bikurim that are not subject to Keri'ah?
(c) Rav Acha bar Ya'akov cited the statement that Hanachah is crucial to the
Mitzvah, but not Keri'ah, in the name of Rebbi Asi Amar Rebbi Yochanan.
What double S'tirah did that create?
(a) In fact, we conclude, we are dealing here with two Machlokos Tana'im. To
answer the Kashya 'Keri'ah a'Keri'ah', like whom do we establish Rebbi
(b) To answer the Kashya 'Hanachah a'Hanachah', we establish Rebbi
Yochanan's statement which considers Hanachah crucial to the Mitzvah of
Bikurim, like the Rabbanan of Rebbi Yehudah.
- ... latter ruling, which considers Keri'ah crucial to the Mitzvah of Bikurim?
- ... earlier ruling, which does not?
What is the basis of their
(c) Seeing as the Torah writes 'Hanachah' twice, on what grounds does Rebbi
Yehudah disagree with them? If "Vehinachto" does not come to make Hanachah
Me'akev, then what does it come for?
(d) What does the word "Vehinachto" mean, according to Rebbi Yehudah?
(a) We establish the Rabbanan of Rebbi Yehudah as Rebbi Eliezer ben Ya'akov.
Answers to questions
What does he learn from the Pasuk in Ki Savo "Velakach ha'Kohen ha'Tene
*mi'Yadecha*" that clashes with Rebbi Yehudah's opinion?
(b) From where does Rebbi Eliezer ben Ya'akov learn that "mi'Yadecha" refers
(c) If we learn from our Parshah that Tenufah requires the Kohen's
participation by a Shelamim, too, what do we learn from Shelamim, that will
apply to the Tenufah of Bikurim, as well?
(d) How do we then combine the two D'rashos?
