1) RAV PAPA'S QUESTIONS ABOUT KEMITZAH AND CHAFINAH (cont'd)
(a) Question: Would the K'li Shareis be Mekadesh if he stuck
the Kometz to its inner walls (fulfilling Toch) or must
it fall to the bottom (a proper Hanachah)?
(b) Answer: Teiku.
(c) Question (Mar b. R. Ashi): What if he turned over the
K'li Shareis and stuck the Kometz into its base (a proper
Hanachah but not Toch?
(d) Answer: Teiku.
(e) Question: Is the Chafinah a heaping or level hands-full?
(f) Answer: The Beraisa teaches that it is in between.
(g) Question (after citing the Halachos of collecting and
spilling blood and their sources R. Papa asks): If the
Ketores spilled on the floor from the M'lo Chafnav:
1. Do we say that his hand is like the neck of the
animal (and the Ketores would be Pesulah like the
blood which spilled from the animal's neck) or;
(h) Answer: Teiku.
2. Are his hands like a K'li Shareis and the Ketores is
(i) Question: If he thought (as he did the Chafinah) to be
Maktir the Ketores the next day, do we learn from "M'lo"
to connect it to the Minchah or not?
(j) Answer: We see from R. Akiva's addition to the Mishnah in
Iduyos that since Linah creates a P'sul, so, too, does
(k) Question: Is the Chatiyah of the coals an Avodah, such
that a Machshavah could make it Pigul, or is a Machshir
not considered like the Mitzvah itself?
2) R. SHEISHES AND HOLACHAH WITH THE LEFT HAND
(l) Answer: Teiku.
(a) Question (asked of R. Sheishes): What if the Holachah of
the blood of a Korban is performed with the left hand?
(b) Answer: We see from our Mishnah (where the Kaf is carried
in his left hand) that carrying with the left is Kosher.
1. Question: Why didn't R. Sheishes learn directly from
the Mishnah in Tamid where Holachah (of the Eivarim)
is done with the left hand?
2. Answer: We might have differentiated since the
Eivarim are not integral to the Kaparah as the
Zerikah (and its associated Holachah) are.
