THE MIREL BAS YAKOV MORDECHAI KORNFELD
prepared by Rabbi Eliezer Chrysler of Kollel Iyun Hadaf
Rosh Kollel: Rabbi Mordecai Kornfeld
(a) Our Mishnah precludes a Yotzei Dofen from the Din of Tum'as Leidah. What is a 'Yotzei Dofen'?
(b) From what does the Tana preclude its mother?
(c) What does Rebbi Shimon say?
(a) What does the Tana learn from the Pasuk in Metzora "Dam Yih'yeh Zovah bi'Vesarah"?
(b) What is the equivalent Din regarding a Zav and a Ba'al-Keri?
(c) What does the Mishnah therefore require a Kohen to do if, in the course of eating T'rumah, his limbs begin to tremble (from the movement of Zera inside his body)?
(d) What Shi'ur does the Tana give for Zivus and Shichvas-Zera to be Metamei?
(a) What does ...
1. ... Rav Mani bar Patish learn from the Pasuk "Ishah ki Sazri'a ve'Yaldah Zachar" (as the source for the Rabbanan in our Mishnah)?
2. ... Resh Lakish learn from the Pasuk "Ishah ki Seiled" (as the source for Rebbi Shimon)?
(b) What does Rebbi Shimon learn from "Ishah ki Sazri'a ve'Yaldah Zachar"?
(c) And what do the Rabbanan learn from "Ishah ki Seiled"? What does it come to incorporate in the Din of Tum'as Leidah?
(d) Why would we have thought otherwise?
(a) Regarding the Rabbanan's previous D'rashah, Rebbi Shimon learns like the Beraisa cited by bar Liva'i. What does bar Liva'i learn from "le'Ben" and "le'Bas" (after having written "Zachar" and 'Nekeivah") respectively?
(b) What do the Rabbanan then learn from "le'Ben" and "le'Bas"? What is the case?
(c) Rebbi Shimon learns this from the same source as the Beraisa cited by the Beraisa expert in front of Rav Sheishes. What did the Tana learn from the word ...
1. ... "Toras" in the Pasuk "Zos Toras ha'Yoledes"?
2. ... "Zos"?
(a) What objection do we raise to the suggestion that "Zos" comes to preclude bringing only one Korban for a Yoledes be'Zov?
(b) According to the Rabbanan, having already written "Zos", why does the Torah find it necessary to add "le'Ben O le'Bas"?
(c) Which famous brothers were actually born in this way?
(a) What does Rebbi Yochanan say about a Yotzei Dofen regarding Kodshim, according to Rebbi Shimon?
(b) And he learns this from the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' of "Leidah" ("Shor O Kesev O Eiz ki Yivaled" [Emor]) 'Leidah'. In which connection is the other 'Leidah' written?
(c) We query this however, in that we could just as well learn 'Leidah' 'Leidah' from a different source, from which we would include it in the Din of Kodshim. Which source are we referring to?
(a) To which P'sukim are we referring when we reply that it is preferable to learn from B'chor (Beheimah) because of "Imo" "Imo"?
(b) How do we counter that? In what obvious way is Kodshim more similar to Adam than it is to B'chor?
(c) So we conclude that it is preferable to learn it from B'chor on account of six similarities. "Imo", Kodshim and Beheimah constitute three. What are the other three?
(a) We counter this however, with various similarities between Kodshim and Adam ... 'Pashut, Zachar, Kadosh, be'Matanah'. What do the last three mean?
(b) What do we mean when we say that Kodshim do not need to be Matnos Kehunah? Like whom does this go?
(c) On what basis do we nevertheless learn Kodshim from Bechor?
(a) Rav Huna b'rei de'Rav Chiya in the name of Rava cites a Beraisa in support of Rebbi Yochanan's previous statement (in which Rebbi Shimon concedes that a Yotzei Dofen cannot be declared Kodshim). What is the Pasuk in Vayikra "Zos Toras ha'Olah Hi ha'Olah" coming to teach us?
(b) In this same Pasuk, what do "Zos", "Hi" and the "Hey" in "ha'Olah" have in common?
(c) Rebbi Yehudah therefore rules that if a Korban that was Shechted during the night, or its blood was spilled, is then brought on the Mizbe'ach, it must be taken down again. What does he learn from the third 'Miy'ut'?
(d) What does Rebbi Shimon say about these three cases (as well as about Lan, Yotzei, Tamei, Nosar), based on the word there "Toras"?
(a) And what does Rebbi Shimon say about ...
1. ... Kodshim that are Shechted in the wrong time or place, whose blood is received or sprinkled by P'sulim, is placed on the wrong part of the Mizbe'ach or even on the wrong Mizbe'ach, or a Pesach or Chatas that is Shechted she'Lo li'Shemah?
2. ... a male or female animal that had relations with a human, a Muktzah or a Ne'evad, an Esnan Zonah or M'chir Kelev, or one that is Kil'ayim, T'reifah or Yotzei Dofen?
(b) What is his source for this latter ruling?
(c) What does Rebbi Yehudah say about all the cases mentioned by Rebbi Shimon other than the three cases that he specifically mentions?
(d) Why is that?
(a) In the first list of Rebbi Shimon ...
1. ... what does 'she'Nishchat Chutz li'Zemano ve'Chutz li'Mekomo' really mean?
2. ... why does he speak about Pesulin receiving the blood of a Korban and not about them Shechting it (which, after all, comes first)?
3. ... why does he mention specifically Pesach or a Chatas that was Shechted she'Lo li'Shemah? Why not other Kodshim?
(b) In the second list of Rebbi Shimon, what is the difference between a Muktzah and a Ne'evad?
(c) What is the basis for the distinction between Rebbi Shimon's two lists? Why does he rule 'Im Alu, Lo Yerdu' in the first list, and 'Im Alu, Yerdu' in the second?
