1. Rebbi Yehudah says that a Minchah is not brought on a Bamah. A non-Kohen may perform the Avodah on a Bamah without Bigdei Kehunah and without a Kli Shares.
2. Rebbi Yochanan says that if a Parah Adumah is slaughtered within the walls of Yerushalayim, it is Pasul.
3. Rebbi Yochanan says that if a Parah Adumah is not burned opposite the entrance of the Heichal, it is Pasul. Rebbi Oshiya disagrees.
4. Rebbi Yochanan says that the rains of the Mabul did not fall in Eretz Yisrael. Reish Lakish disagrees.
5. A courtyard was built in Yerushalayim on a rock with a hollowed-out space underneath. The children who drew the water for the Parah Adumah were born and raised in that courtyard.
6. Human bones were found once in the Lishkas ha'Etzim in the Beis ha'Mikdash. The Chachamim wanted to declare all of Yerushalayim as Tamei. Rebbi Yehoshua prevented them, saying, "Where are the dead of the Mabul and of Nevuchadnetzar?"
7. All living creatures on dry land died in the Mabul, while the fish survived.
8. Although the water of the Mabul was boiling hot, the water at the sides of the Teivah were miraculously cooled off.
9. The bodies of those who died in the Mabul ended up in Bavel.
10. If one slaughters an animal of Bedek ha'Bayis, or a Sa'ir ha'Mishtale'ach, outside of the Azarah, he is not liable.
A BIT MORE
1. One is also not required to bring a Korban on a Bamah l'Shem Rei'ach Nicho'ach, and a Bamah has no Chut ha'Sikra, a red line that divides the blood which is placed on the upper and lower parts of the Mizbe'ach. One also is not required to wash his hands and feet before he does the Avodah on a Bamah.
2. However, there is no Chiyuv for slaughtering a Parah Adumah outside of its designated place. Since a Parah Adumah is not brought in the Beis ha'Mikdash, there is no Chiyuv for bringing it outside of its designated place.
3. The sprinkling of the blood of the Parah Adumah must be done toward the entrance of the Heichal. Rebbi Yochanan maintains that the burning of the Parah Adumah is compared to the sprinkling of the blood.
4. According to Reish Lakish, since the rains of the Mabul fell in Eretz Yisrael, the bones of the dead became submerged into the ground and there is a concern for hidden graves.
5. Since the space underneath the rock was hollow, it blocked any possible Tum'ah from a submerged grave from ascending, and thus it guaranteed that the children remained Tahor.
6. The bones of the people who were killed by Nevuchadnetzar were removed from Yerushalayim. According to Reish Lakish, the bones from the dead of the Mabul were removed from Yerushalayim but not from the rest of Eretz Yisrael.
7. All living creatures in Eretz Yisrael died, even according to Rebbi Yochanan who says that the rains of the Mabul did not fall in Eretz Yisrael. They died from the heat of the boiling waters of the Mabul.
8. The water at the sides of the Teivah were cool so that the pitch of the Teivah would not dissolve. Og, the future king of Bashan, along with a huge creature called a Rimah, were saved from the Mabul by hanging on to the sides of the Teivah.
9. Bavel is a low-lying region. Therefore, the waters of the Mabul brought everything down to Bavel. However, according to Reish Lakish, some of the dead became stuck in the mud of Eretz Yisrael and remained there.
10. Whether one slaughters a Sa'ir ha'Mishtale'ach before or after the Viduy, he is not liable. If one slaughters it before the lots are drawn, he is liable, because at that point it is possible that it will be the Sa'ir that is for Hashem.
