(a) What does Rebbi hold?
(b) Why does Rebbi not permit the Noder to bring sixty Esronim in sixty
Keilim, and to stipulate that as many Esronim as he undertook to bring

(c) What do both Tana'im hold with regard to mixing Chovah and a Nedavah in
the same K'li?
(a) According to Rava, they both hold 'Asur Le'havi Chulin la'Azarah'.
what grounds then, do the Rabbanan rule 'Yavi Minchah shel Shishim Esronim'?

(c) What did Rava reply, when Abaye asked him ...
- ... how the Kohen would be Yotzei with one Kemitzah (for the Chovah and the Nedavah)?

(a) We have a problem however, with burning the two Kemaztim 'mi'Mah
Answers to questions

bring all sixty Esronos (which are then all Chovah), what is then the
problem with burning ...
(b) Rebbi Yehudah b'rei de'Rebbi Shimon ben Pazi establishes our Mishnah
when the Kohen first burned the Chovah, and the Tana holds like Rebbi

What does Rebbi Eliezer learn from the Pasuk in Vayikra (in

interpretation of the Machlokes (that the Rabbanan and Rebbi are arguing
over whether one is permitted to mix Chovah and Nedavah or not)?
(b) What will both Tana'im then hold with regard to mixing Chovah and
(a) Rav Ashi answers that if Rebbi held 'Mutar Le'arev Chovah bi'Nedavah',
it would still be possible to fulfill his obligation with one Minchah, by
bringing sixty Isaron in one K'li, and one in another.

Noder then stipulate when taking the Kometz from the larger one?
(b) What would he have to do, to ensure that the Kometz from the second K'li
will cover the Minchah di'Nedavah in the first?

Hu be'Bal Taktiru'?

Isaron and fulfill his obligation?
