ZEVACHIM 51 - sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of love
for the Torah and for those who study it.
(a) What final four part question do we ask in connection with 'Davar
(b) We try to resolve one of the four She'eilos from the Beraisa (which,
based on the opinion of Rebbi Yehudah in 'ha'Mizbe'ach Mekadesh', who holds
in certain cases of 'Pesulo ba'Kodesh, 'Im Alah, Yered', asks) 'Mipnei Mah
Amru Lan be'Dam, Kasher?' (see Tosfos DH 'P'shot').
What does this mean?
(c) From where do we know that ...
(d) And why is 'Lan be'Basar, Kasher'?
- ... 'Lan be'Dam, Kasher'?
- ... 'Lan be'Eimurin, Kasher'?
(a) Why are the following also included in the list of 'Im Alah, Lo Yered'
(b) Which of the four She'eilos do we try to resolve from this Beraisa?
- ... Yotzei?
- ... Tamei?
- ... Chutz li'Zemano?
- ... Chutz li'Mekomo?
- ... she'Kiblu Pesulin ve'Zarku es Damo'?
(a) We ask how the Tana can possibly learn someone illegal from something
that is legal.
Besides learning 'Lan be'Eimurim' from 'Lan be'Basar', what
are we referring to?
(b) What do we mean when we answer that the Tana relies on the Pasuk in Tzav
"Zos Toras ha'Olah"?
(c) How does this affect our proof?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah that the Sheyarei ha'Dam of the Chata'os must
be poured on to the western Yesod of the Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon.
How do we
learn this from the Pasuk in Vayikra (in connection with the Par Kohen
Mashi'ach) "el Yesod Mizbach ha'Olah Asher Pesach Ohel Mo'ed"?
(b) The Beraisa discusses the many times the phrase "el Yesod Mizbach
What is the significance of this phrase in the Parshah of
the Par Kohen Mashi'ach?
(a) What does the Toras Kohanim learn (with regard to the Mizbe'ach
ha'Penimi) from "el Yesod Mizbach ha'Olah" written by the Par He'elam Davar
(b) How does the Tana know that the Pasuk is not coming to teach the Kohen
where to pour the Sheyarei ha'Dam of the Par He'elam Davar?
(c) What does the Tana mean when to explain "el Yesod Mizbach ha'Olah"
written by the Sa'ir Nasi, he says 'Ten Yesod le'Mizbe'ach shel Olah'?
(d) And how does the Tana know that the Pasuk is not coming to teach the
Kohen to pour the Sheyarei ha'Dam of the Sa'ir Nasi on the Yesod of the
Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon, and not the Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi?
(a) What does the Tana mean when he suggests 'O Eino Ela le'Mizbechah shel
Olah Ten Yesod'?
(b) Rebbi Yishmael answers this Kashya with a 'Kal-va'Chomer' from the
Sheyarei Chatas? Which 'Kal-va'Chomer'?
(a) From the first "el Yesod Mizbach ha'Olah", the Beraisa learned 've'Lo
Yesod Mizbach ha'Penimi'.
Answers to questions
How do we query this statement?
(b) But did we not learn that the Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi did not have a Yesod?
(c) How do we refute the query? From where do we know that the Shirayim of
the Par Kohen Mashi'ach
- ... *may* be poured on the Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon?
- ... *must* be poured on the Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon?
(a) From the third "el Yesod ... ", we learned 'Ten Yesod le'Mizbe'ach shel
Olah'. We already explained why the simple explanation (to pour the Shirayim
on the Yesod of the Mizbe'ach ha'Chitzon, and not of the Mizbe'ach
ha'Penimi) seems obvious.
Answers to questions
On what grounds do we nevertheless suggest that
that is what it comes to teach us? Why might we still have thought that one
should pour the blood of the Sa'ir Nasi on the Yesod of the Mizbe'ach
(b) On what grounds do we reject this suggestion?
