BAVA BASRA 2-8 - Two weeks of study material have been dedicated by Mrs. Estanne Abraham Fawer to honor the Yahrzeit of her father, Rav Mordechai ben Eliezer Zvi (Rabbi Morton Weiner) Z'L, who passed away on 18 Teves 5760. May the merit of supporting and advancing Dafyomi study -- which was so important to Rav Weiner -- during the weeks of his Yahrzeit serve as an Iluy for his Neshamah.

2)[line 26]בקרנא ולופתאKARNA V'LUFSA- at the corner, and attached (that is, Reuven adds an extension to his house at the corner of his house, parallel with the neighbor's wall, but which does not extend for as long as the neighbor's wall extends. Since Reuven built an enclosed, limited extension to his home, it is clear that he is not going to use any more of the neighbor's wall in the future. -RASHI)

3a)[line 27]אפריזאAFRIZA- a long, thick piece of wood (that is, placed along the length of the wall to protect the beams that are placed on the wall)

b)[line 31]לא אחזיק לכשוריLO ACHZIK LI'CHESHUREI- he does not have a Chazakah to permit him to place heavy beams on his neighbor's wall (because his neighbor can claim that he only granted him the right to place thin pieces of wood there)

27)[line 34]אמר ממצורי קממצירנאAMAR MIMTZUREI KAMEMATIZRNA- he could say that an object slipped over the border (and I was just coming to retrieve it)
