Previous dafYoma 25
1) PROPER ATTIRE FOR A PAYIS (cont'd)
(a) R. Nachman reported his source that the Payis is done in
2) THE LISHKAS HAGAZIS
1. The Mishnah teaches that the attendants removed all but
the Michnasayim of the Kohanim.
(b) R. Sheshes reported his source that the Payis is done in
2. We assume that these Kohanim are the ones who won.
3. The changing, then, is *into* Bigdei Kodesh, *from*
4. (R. Sheshes) No, the attendants removed the garments of
those who *lost*.
(i) This is supported by the fact that they left on
the Michnasayim, which must be the first garments
to be donned.
5. (R. Nachman) No, the attendants put Michnesei Kodesh on
the winners first, then removed the rest of their
Bigdei Chol, leaving them with Michnasayim.
(ii) If we were speaking of the winning Kohanim, then
the Michnasayim would then be donned *last*.
1. The Beraisa teaches that the overseer of the lottery
removed the *Mitznefes* from the head of the starting
Kohen, a garment only appearing in Bigdei Kodesh!
2. No, there were Kohanim who wore a "Mitznefes Chol."
(a) (Abaye) The Lishkas HaGazis must have been half in Kodesh
and half in Chol.
3) MISHNAH: THE SECOND PAYIS
1. The sitting elder indicates that there must have been a
part in Chol.
(b) Also, it must have had an entrance to both Kodesh and Chol.
2. The Pasuk "B'Vais Elokim..." indicates that the Payis
must have been in Kodesh.
1. Since its entrance determines the status of the room,
it must have had an entrance to Chol, since he sat.
2. The Payis indicates that it had an entrance to Kodesh.
(a) The Mishnah lists the 13 tasks which the second lottery
4) A PAYIS FOR EACH TASK, OR A COLLECTIVE PAYIS
(b) Ben Azai (citing R. Yehoshua) argues over the order in which
the parts of the Tamid were brought onto the Kevesh.
(a) Question: Was a Payis conducted for each of the 13 tasks, or
was one Payis conducted and the tasks were automatically
assigned from that one?
(b) Answer: We have been taught that there were a total of four.
1. No, that they *entered* four times for Paysos (but
perhaps they had many Paysos once they entered).
5) WHO DOES THE KABALAH?
2. From the Beraisa regarding the Ketores and Machtah in
the third Payis we see that there were only four, and
the other tasks were automatically assigned to the
Kohen to his right.
3. No, that was unique to the Ketores and Machtah (but our
13 would involve separate Paysos).
4. Alternately, the sequence began with the inference that
other Avodos (than Ketores and Machtah) required a
separate Payis, since these were singled out
5. No, they were singled out because we might have
(incorrectly) made two Paysos for them.
6. In the end, a clear Beraisa teaches that the other 12
assignments were automatic after the first Payis.
(a) Question: Is the Shochet also the Mekabel, or is the Zorek?
6) DIFFERING ORDERS FOR HAKRAVAS HATAMID
1. The Zorek might rush the Kabalah.
(b) Answer: The 12 spigots of Ben Katin teach us that it is the
Zorek who is the Mekabel (R. Acha cites a supporting
2. The Shochet might be a Zar.
(a) The Tana Kama teaches the order of its *Hiluch* (cited by
Ben Azai in the name of R. Yehoshua).
(b) R. Yosi teaches the order of its *Hefshet*.
(c) R. Akiva teaches the order of the *Nituach*.
(d) R. Yosi HaGelili teaches the order of its *Ilui*.
1. Question: But from the Pasuk we learn that the Yerech
is *more* valuable than the Kasef?!
(e) (Rava) The Tana Kama and R. Yosi HaGelili agree regarding
the priority of value, and only argue as to whether size
(Tana Kama) or fat (R. Yosi HaGelili) is valued more.
2. Answer: That speaks of a lean animal.
(f) Question: Why do all the Tanaim agree that the right hind
leg goes together with the head.
(g) Answer: It, like the head, has many bones.
(h) Question: What is the source that the head is first?
(i) Answer: The Pasuk puts the Rosh and Pader first to V'Arach.
(j) Question: Why does Pader need to be singled out?
(k) Answer: It was placed over the Beis HaShechitah for Kavod.
