Previous dafYoma 88
YOMA 59-88 have been dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Simcha
Bekelnitzky (Simcha Gedalya ben Shraga Feibush) of Queens N.Y. by his wife
and daughters. Well known in the community for his Chesed and Tzedakah, he
will long be remembered.
(a) According to the Tana of the Beraisa, why should all Chayvei Tevilah
Tovel on Yom Kipur?
(b) A Nidah and a Yoledes Tovel on Kol Nidrei night.
Why may a Ba'al Keri
who became Tamei after Minchah, not Tovel?
(c) What does Rebbi Yossi say?
(a) In a second Beraisa, the Rabbanan and Rebbi Yossi seem to have switched
opinions - the Tana Kama permits Tevilah even after Minchah, whereas Rebbi
Yossi forbids it. How do we reconcile Rebbi Yossi there with his opinion
(b) Seeing as the Beraisa is speaking even after the Ba'al Keri has Davened
Ne'ilah, why do the Rabbanan permit a Ba'al Keri to Tovel?
(c) What does Rebbi Yossi then hold in this regard?
(d) Then how do we reconcile this with a Beraisa in Shabbos, where Rebbi
Yossi permits Tevilas Mitzvah even with the Name of Hashem written on his
skin (even without a bull-rush tied around it) - because of 'Tevilah
bi'Zemanah Mitzvah' (and we are afraid that he may not find a bullrush)?
(a) Why is the above Tevilah not forbidden because of the La'av of erasing
the Name of Hashem?
(b) What do the Rabbanan hold regarding a Tevilas Mitzvah with Hashem's Name
written on his skin, and what is their reason?
(c) In which context does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah say 'Tevilah
bi'Zemanah La'av Mitzvah'?
(a) The Tana of another Beraisa permits someone who sees Keri on Yom Kipur
to Tovel immediately.
What is the problem with his next statement
(b) How do we amend that statement?
(a) According to the first Tana, what is seeing Keri (be 'Ones) on Yom Kipur
a sign of?
(b) Then what does the second Tana mean when he says 'Avonosav Sedurim'?
(c) Rebbi Yishmael b'Rebbi Yossi says that he should worry the entire year.
Why is that?
(d) What if he survives the year? How does Rav Nachman bar Yitzchak prove
(a) When Rav Dimi arrived in Bavel, he said 'Meifish Chayei, Sagi u'Masgi'.
What did he mean?
***** Hadran Alach Yom Kipuri, u'Selika Lah Maseches Yoma *****
(b) Which Pasuk in Yeshayah hints to this statement?
