Summary of the Daf
We learn from the Chanukas ha'Bayis of Shlomo ha'Melech that it is forbidden to mix one Simchah with another.

The year that Shlomo ha'Melech made the Chanukas ha'Bayis, Klal Yisrael did not fast on Yom Kippur.

Rebbi Yehudah says that a woman may not put on foundation on Chol ha'Mo'ed. However, if she will remove the foundation before the end of the Mo'ed, it is permitted.


Brief Insight
The Gemara says that a student who takes leave from his Rebbi and subsequently stays in town overnight must take leave again. This is learned from Klal Yisrael, who took leave from Shlomo ha'Melech on Shemini Atzeres and then again on the next day. The Bach asks, why did Klal Yisrael take leave on Shemini Atzeres from Shlomo ha'Melech if they knew that they would not leave Yerushalayim until the next day, given that Shemini Atzeres requires Linah (an overnight stay in Yerushalayim)? The answer is that when the Gemara says that one who takes leave and then stays overnight must take leave again, it refers only to one who stayed over an extra day unplanned. If, however, he leaves on the next day as planned, he does not need to take leave again. Klal Yisrael ended up staying over two days after Shemini Atzeres, and thus they were required to take leave on the day after Shemini Atzeres for a second time. However, had they left on the day after Shemini Atzeres as planned, they would not have had to take leave again. (Ran, Hagahos ha'Bach on the Ran, Taz)


Quick Halachah
A student who takes leave from his Rebbi and stays in town overnight must take leave again the next day. However, that is only if he did not tell his Rebbi originally that he plans on staying overnight, but if at the time he took leave he told his Rebbi that he plans on staying overnight, there is no need to take leave a second time. (Shulchan Aruch YD 242:31)
