her Chovah, but cannot remember what she specified, how many Olos is she
obligated to bring initially?
(b) In a case where she only brought two Kinin, including three Olos,
assuming that all the birds that she brought consisted of the same species,
how many birds will she still need to bring?
(c) Why will it not suffice to bring one bird corresponding to the Chovah,
and one Kan consisting of the species that she did not being earlier?
(d) And how many birds will she still need to bring, assuming that the
Chovah and the Neder consisted of different species (and that, like in the
earlier case, she does not know which of the species was brought last)?
(e) What happens to the second bird (the one that the Kohen actually brought
already) that she brings to correspond to her Chovah?
(a) The Mishnah then discusses what the Halachah will be if the woman gave

Answers to questions
What is the criterion for 'Pesulo ba'Kodesh'?
(b) What is the significance of the word 'Begadim' (which appears in the
Sugya later on the Amud)?
(a) What is Rav coming to teach us when he states that S'mol and Laylah
(with regard to Melikas Of) are Metamei be'Beis ha'Beli'ah, but that Zar and
Sakin are not?
(b) Is it only the Melikah of a *Zar* that is Pasul? How about an Onan, an
Areil and other Pesulim?
(c) Seeing as Melikah with the left hand or in the night is Pasul, on what
grounds is the Tum'ah removed by ...
(d) Why does Melikas Zar not also remove the Tum'ah, seeing as a Zar is
Kasher to Shecht?
- ... Melikas S'mol?
- ... Melikas Laylah?
(a) When Rebbi Zeira disqualified a Zar from Shechting the Parah Adumah,
what source did Rav give for this?
(b) What do we attempt to prove from here?
(c) We try to counter the answer that Parah is different in that it is
Kodshei Bedek ha'Bayis with a 'Kal va'Chomer'.
Which 'Kal va'Chomer'?
(d) What does Rav Shisha b'rei de'Rav Idi prove from 'Mar'os Nega'im?
(a) What is the Din of a Zar vis-a-vis Melikah of Olos ha'Ofos by a Bamah?
(b) Then why does Rav not place Melikas Zar on a par with S'mol and Laylah,
since it is Kasher by a Bamah?
(c) From where does the Beraisa learn that a Korban that is Yotze (i.e. that
left its boundaries) 'Im Alah Lo Yeired'?
(d) How will Rav explain this, in light of what he just said?
(a) Rebbi Yochanan disagrees with Rav.
What does he say about Melikas Zar?
(b) From where does he learn it?
(c) What do we try to prove from our Mishnah "Kol ha'Pesulin she'Malku
Melikasan Pesulah, ve'Eino Metamei be'Beis ha'Be'li'ah'?
(d) We try to refute Rav's answer, that the Tana comes to include 'S'mal'
and 'Laylah' by pointing out that the Tana mentions them explicitly.
do we dismiss that Kashya?
(a) We ask again on Rav from the Seifa of the Mishnah 'Zeh ha'K'lal Kol
she'Hayah Pesulo ba'Kodesh Metamei Begadim a'Beis ha'Beli'ah ... '.
we counter this with a Kashya on Rebbi Yochanan from the Seifa de'Seifa?
(b) We conclude that the Reisha de'Seifa comes to include 'Shechitas Kodshim
What does the Seifa de'Seifa then come to include?
(c) We learned a Beraisa like Rebbi Yochanan.
What does the Tana say about
- ... a Zar or a Pasul who perform Melikah?
- ... a Korban ha'Of that is 'Pigul, Nosar ve'Tamei'?
(a) What did Rebbi Yitzchak hear in connection with Kemitzas Zar and Melikas
So what is Rebbi Yitzchak's reason? Why can we not learn the Kemitzah of a
Zar in the Beis-Hamikdash from Bamah?
(b) What did Chizkiyah say to that?
(c) What objection do we raise to the suggestion that ...
(d) This is based on a statement of Rav Sheishes.
- ... the Melikah of a Zar is Metamei' because it is Kasher by a Bamah?
- ... the Kemitzah of a Zar not Metamei is because a Minchah cannot be brought on a Bamah?
What does Rav Sheishes
learn from the Pasuk in Mishpatim (in connection with Har Sinai)
"Va'yizbechu *Zevachim* Shelamim"?
What does that have to do with the Din
of a Bamah?
