YOMA 17 (28 Sivan) - dedicated to the memory of Hagaon Rav Yisroel Zev (ben Rav Avrohom Tzvi) Gustman, ZT'L, Rosh Yeshiva of "Yeshivas Netzach Yisrael-Ramailes" (in Vilna, Brooklyn, and then Yerushalayim), author of "Kuntresei Shi'urim," and renowned Dayan in pre-war and post-war Vilna, on his 15th Yahrzeit. Dedicated by Harav Eliezer Stern and Harav Zalman Stern of Brooklyn NY, and Reb Yechiel Wachtel and Reb Michoel Starr of Yerushalayim, who merited to study under Rav Gustman ZT'L
(a) According to Rebbi Eliezer ben Yakov, where about in the Azarah was the Mizbe'ach placed?
(b) How do we reconcile this with what we learnt at the end of the previous Amud - that there were five Amos (see Maharsha) of the Mizbe'ach on the north side of the Azarah?
(c) In that case (once we are not dividing the missing twenty-one Amos into two equal halves, one half between the south wall and the ramp, and the other half, for the short posts), why can we not explain Rebbi Yehudah in the same way (by reckoning all the missing Amos between the south wall and the ramp) - in which case, the author of the Mishnah could equally well be Rebbi Yehudah?
(a) How does Rav Ada Brei d'Rav Yitzchak reconcile the Mishnah in Tamid, that places the Lishkas ha'Tela'im on the north-western corner of the Lishkas Beis ha'Mokad, with the Mishnah in Midos, which places it on the south-west?
(b) According to Rav Ada, where was it really considered to be, more in the north-west, or more in the south-west?
(c) He proves this from what would otherwise be a second contradiction between the Mishnah in Tamid and the Mishnah in Tamid regarding the Lishkas Lechem ha'Panim. Assuming that the Tana means literally that the Lishkas ha'Tela'im was in the north-west, what causes us to believe that the two Mishnayos also clash with regard to the the Lishkas Lechem ha'Panim?
(d) How does ...
1. ... Rav Huna Brei d'Rav Yehoshua initially resolve the contradiction?
2. ... Rav Ada Brei d'Rav Yitzchak prove his point from here?
(a) But how can the Tana list the rooms from right to left, when we have learnt that one should always go from left to right?
(a) We learnt in our Mishnah that the Kohen Gadol was entitled to perform any Avodah that he chose and to receive the first portion of the Korbanos. What portion did he receive from the Shtei ha'Lechem on Shavu'os?
(b) According to the Rabanan, the Kohen Gadol received sometimes four of the Lechem ha'Panim and sometimes five. What does Rebbi say? What is his source?
(c) According to Rebbi's source, why does he not receive six?
(d) How do we reconcile the Reisha, which allots one of the two breads on Shavu'os to the Kohen Gadol, with the Rabanan, who maintain that the Kohen Gadol takes less than half?
(a) The Rabanan of Rebbi Yehudah in Sukah hold that both the incoming group of Kohanim that served each Shabbos and the outgoing group, would receive six of the twelve Lechem ha'Panim. What does Rebbi Yehudah say, and what is his reason?
(b) How do the Rabanan in our Mishnah, who say that the Kohen Gadol takes four or five of the Lechem ha'Panim, tie up with the two opinions in Sukah?
(a) If Rebbi holds like Rebbi Yehudah, how many loaves ought the Kohen Gadol to receive?
(b) The Mishnah in Sukah speaks of a Mishmar ha'Mis'akev. What is the Mishmar ha'Mis'akev, and how many of the Lechem ha'Panim did they receive?
(c) Based on that Mishnah, how does Rava establish the Reisha of the Beraisa (which says that the Kohen Gadol received four or five of the loaves) like Rebbi?
(d) What Kashya do we ask on Rava's explanation?
