(a) The Mishnah in Terumos states 'Ein Tormin min ha'Tahor al ha'Tamei;

Answers to questions
(b) And how do we reconcile the previous Halachah 'be'Meizid Lo Asah ve'Lo
K'lum' (according to Rav Chisda, who takes it literally)) with the Mishnah
in D'mai 'ha'Torem me'she'Ein Nakuv al Nakuv Terumah, ve'Yachzor ve'Yitrom'?
- ... with the previous Halachah? How do we know that the Tana there is speaking be'Shogeg?
- ... with the Reisha of this Mishnah 've'Im Taram be'Shogeg, Terumaso Terumah' (seeing as both are be'Shogeg)?
(a) According to Rav Nasan bar Oshaya, how do we reconcile the Mishnah under

Chet ba'Harimchem es Chelbo Mimenu"?
(a) What did Rav Chisda reply when Rabah asked him how he could possibly
declare the first Terumah not valid, seeing as min ha'Torah, it is (as we
just saw from Rebbi Ilai)? How did he attempt to prove from our Mishnah that
the Chachamim do have such powers?
(b) Rabah refutes Rav Chisda's reply by quoting Shmuel and Ravin Amar Rebbi

her Terumah (whilst she is alive).

(d) How does Rebbi Elazar learn 'Hefker Beis-Din Hefker' from the Pasuk in
Yehoshua "Eileh ha'Nachalos Asher Nachalu *Elazar ha'Kohen vi'Yehoshua ben

(a) We learned that the Ketanah's husband buries her (even if he is a
Answers to questions
How does Rabah reconcile this with the fact that, min ha'Torah, it
is her father who is obligated to bury her?
