(a) How will Rav Ada bar Ahavah, who holds that there is no such thing as
'Tafel Chamur min ha'Ikar', explain the fact that even though ...
(b) What might we learn from the Pasuk in Vayikra "Ve'shachat es ha'Chatas
- ... Kedushah does not take effect on a permanent Ba'al-Mum, Temurah does?
- ... a Korban Pesach on Pesach does not require Semichah, Nesachim or Matnas Chazeh ve'Shok to a Kohen, during the rest of the year, it does?

Yishchatu es ha'Olah Yishchatu es ha'Asham" we learn that the Asham requires
What do we learn from ...
- ... the Pasuk there "ve'es Damo Yizrok"?
- ... the 'Vav' in "ve'es"?
- ... the Pasuk in Metzora (in connection with the Asham Metzora) "ve'Shachat es ha'Keves"?
(a) What does the Beraisa learn from the Pasuk "ve'Shachat es ha'Keves ...
*ki ka'Chatas ha'Asham*"?
(b) Why do we need this Pasuk? Why would we have otherwise thought that the
Asham Metzora does not require Matan Damim and Eimurim on the Mizbe'ach?
(c) What Kashya does this pose on the previous D'rashah (that "ve'Shachat es
ha'Keves ... " teaches us that Tzafon is Me'akev)?
(d) We answer 'im Kein, Lichtov be'Hai, ve'Lo Lichtov be'Hai'.
What do we

(b) How do we reconcile the previous D'rashah even according to that
(c) Rav Zutra b'rei de'Rav Mari asked Ravina that maybe the Torah only
reinstates the Asham Metzora in the Din of the Matanos, but not in the Din
On what grounds did he say that?
(d) What did Ravina reply?
(a) The Torah writes "Ve'shachat es ha'Keves bi'Mekom Asher Yishchat es
ha'Chatas ve'es ha'Olah".
Why does the Torah need to compare the Asham
both to Chatas and to Olah, why not just ...
(b) But surely if the Torah held 'Davar ha'Lamed be'Hekesh Chozer u'Melamed
be'Hekesh', then it would rather have compared Asham to Chatas, which
immediately precedes it?
- ... to Chatas?
- ... to Olah?
(c) So what is the outcome of the Sugya? What do we learn from the fact that
the Torah compares Asham both to Chatas and to Olah?
(a) Rava learns 'Davar ha'Lamed be'Hekesh Eino Chozer u'Melamed be'Hekesh'
from another source.
What is the problem with ...
(b) How does the first Kashya answer the second?
- ... the Pasuk in Vayikra (in connection with the Eimurim of the Par Kohen Mashi'ach) "Ka'asher Yuram mi'Shor Zevach ha'Shelamim"?
- ... learning Yoseres ha'Kaved by the Se'irei Avodas-Kochavim from Par He'elam Davar shel Tzibur?
(c) Rav Papa asked Rava why the Torah does not simply insert the Yoseres
ha'Kaved and the Sh'tei ha'Kelayos directly in the Parshah of Par He'elam
Davar shel Tzibur, in which case a Hekesh to Par Kohen Mashi'ach would not
What did Rava reply?
(a) Rebbi Nasan ben Avtulmus in a Beraisa learns 'P'richah' by Tzara'as
Begadim with a 'Gezeirah-Shavah' "Karachas ve'Gabachas" "Karachas
ve'Gabachas" from Tzara'as Adam on a location of hair.

(c) How does Rebbi Yochanan refute the proof from there that 'Davar ha'Lamed
be'Hekesh, Chozer u'Melamed bi'Gezeirah-Shavah'?
(d) How does he then go on to prove that by Kodshim, we hold 'Davar ha'Lamed
be'Hekesh, Eino Chozer u'Melamed bi'Gezeirah-Shavah', from the fact that the
Torah writes "Tzafonah" by Asham? What is he referring to when he cites the
'Gezeirah-Shavah" "Kodshei Kodashim" "Kodshei Kodashim"?
(a) How do we attempt to counter Rebbi Yochanan's proof? What 'Pircha' do we
ask on the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' (Asham from Chatas)?
Answers to questions
