4)[line 10]מעשר ראשוןMA'ASER RISHON

(a)After a crop is harvested and brought to the owner's house or yard, he must separate Terumah from the crop and give it to a Kohen. (Only valid Kohanim - to the exclusion of Chalalim - and their wives and servants may eat Terumah.) Although the Torah does not specify the amount to be given, the Rabanan set the requirement at one fiftieth of the total crop.

(b)After Terumah is removed from the produce, the first tithe to be given every year is called Ma'aser Rishon; one tenth of the produce must be given to a Levi.

6)[line 20]מעשר ראשון אסור לזריםMA'ASER RISHON ASUR L'ZARIM

According to the majority, and Halachic, opinion, Ma'aser Rishon does not have Kedushah. It may be eaten both Tamei and Tahor, and by any person. Rebbi Meir (Yevamos 74a and elsewhere), however, argues and maintains that Ma'aser Rishon does have Kedushah. According to him, Ma'aser Rishon may only be eaten by Leviyim or Kohanim, and even they may not eat it if they are Arelim (uncircumcised). Rebbi Meir agrees, however, that Ma'aser Rishon may be eaten when it is Tamei (TOSFOS Yevamos 86b DH Mi).
