1)[line 16]במורם מן הקדשיםB'MURAM MIN HA'KODASHIM (CHAZEH V'SHOK)

(a)The chest and the hind leg of the Shelamim (peace offering) were waved in a prescribed manner and were then given as a gift to the Kohanim, as described in Vayikra (7:28-36). They may not be eaten by non-Kohanim, but both male and female members of the households of Kohanim may eat them.

(b)If a Bas Kohen marries a non-Kohen she may no longer eat from the Chazeh v'Shok. Even if her husband divorces her or dies, she may not eat the Chazeh v'Shok.

2)[line 17]חלהCHALAH

Whenever a person kneads a dough made from one of the five species of grain (wheat, barley, oats, rye, or spelt), he must separate a small portion to be given to the Kohen, as specified in Bamidbar 15:17-21. This portion is called Chalah. The requirement to separate Chalah with a Berachah only applies to a dough made from the volume of 43.2 Beitzim of flour (about 10 1/2 cups or 2.48 liters). An amount about half that much requires Chalah to be separated without a Berachah. A baker must separate 1/48 of his dough as Chalah, while a normal homeowner must separate 1/24.

3)[line 18]בסוריאB'SURIYAH- in Syria, an area which was captured by David ha'Melech. There is a Machlokes whether or not it was annexed to Eretz Yisrael, since its capture was considered a Kibush Yachid, a private capture. According to those who are of the opinion that Kibush Yachid is considered a Kibush, the obligation to separate Chalah applies there mid'Oraisa.

4)[line 18]מתנותMATANOS (MATNOS KEHUNAH)

(a)There are twenty-four gifts that non-Kohanim are required to give to Kohanim. Among these are the Zero'a, Lechayayim, and Keivah of a Kosher animal.

(b)When one slaughters an ox, sheep, or goat that are not Kodshim (consecrated to the Beis ha'Mikdash), he must give its Zero'a, Lechayayim, and Keivah to a Kohen (Devarim 18:3). The Zero'a includes the two upper bones of the right foreleg, from the knee until the top of the shoulder blade. The Lechayayim consists of the lower jaw, which extends from the joint where it is attached to the upper jaw until the thyroid cartilage, including the tongue. The Keivah is the maw along with its Chelev (surrounding fat), though Kohanim customarily allow the owner of an animal to keep the Chelev.

(c)Although one must give the Zero'a, Lechayayim and Keivah to a Kohen, they may be eaten by a non-Kohen.

9)[line 41]ז' שכיבשו וז' שחילקוSHEVA SHE'KIVSHU V'SHEVA SHE'CHILKU

(a)It took seven years for the Jewish people under Yehoshua, to conquer Eretz Yisrael. It took another seven years to divide it amongst the tribes.

(b)Since regarding Chalah the Torah uses the word "b'Vo'achem" (when you come) and not the usual "Ki Tavo'u" when it describes entering the land of Israel, Chalah differs from the other Mitzvos that apply to the Land. The other Mitzvos took effect only after the seven years of conquest and the seven years of apportionment. Chalah, however, was separated as soon as they entered the Land.
