Rosh Kollel: Rabbi Mordecai Kornfeld
(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Mal'achi "va'Haveisem Gazul v'es ha'Pise'ach"?
(b) Why would one not be Yotzei if he brought a stolen Korban from which the owner had ...
1. ... not yet been Meya'esh (despaired)?
2. ... already been Meya'esh?
(c) What parable does Rebbi Yochanan quoting Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai, give to explain the Pasuk in Yeshayah "Ki Ani Hash-m ... Sonei Gezel b'Olah"?
(d) What do we learn from there?
(a) Rav Yitzchak bar Nachmeini quoting Shmuel, disagrees with Rebbi Yochanan. What does he say about taking a stolen Lulav on the second day of Sukos?
(b) What does Rav Nachman bar Yitzchak infer from our Mishnah: 'Lulav ha'Gazul v'ha'Yavesh Pasul'? Why can this not refer to the first day of Yom-Tov?
(c) What then, is the problem from there?
(a) We resolve the problem by establishing the Mishnah on the first day of Sukos. How do we then explain the Tana's omission of a borrowed Lulav?
(b) Why would we otherwise have thought that a stolen Lulav is better than a borrowed one?
(a) What does 'Karka Einah Nigzeles' mean?
(b) Why did Rav Huna then instruct the Hadas merchants that, whenever they purchased their Hadasim from Nochrim, they should make sure to let the owners cut the Hadasim themselves. What would have been wrong in allowing the merchants to cut the Hadasim themselves?
(c) And what was the advantage of letting Nochrim cut the Hadasim?
(d) Why would that not be necessary with regard to the Hadasim that the merchants intended to sell? To which Hadasim then, was Rav Huna referring?
(a) We ask why they did not acquire the Hadasim with 'Shinuy Ma'aseh' (which acquires even without Yi'ush). What is 'Shinuy Ma'aseh'? To which Shinuy Ma'aseh is the Gemara referring?
(b) To which the Gemara answers that Lulav does not require binding. How does this answer the question?
(c) How do we then answer the Kashya even if it does?
(a) We ask why they did not anyway acquire the Hadasim with Yi'ush and Shinuy Hash-m. How does Shinuy Hash-m apply here?
(b) Why did they call a Hadas, 'a Hoshana'?
(c) How do we answer the Kashya?
