|12th Cycle dedication|
CHULIN 73 (8 Elul) - Dedicated in memory of Esther Miryam bas Harav Chaim Zev and her husband Harav Refael Yisrael ben Harav Moshe (Snow), whose Yahrzeits are 7 Elul and 8 Elul respectively. Sponsored by their son and daughter in law, Moshe and Rivka Snow.
1. One owns a utensil with a long handle that he plans to shorten. If the utensil becomes Tamei, he needs to immerse only the portion of the handle that he plans to keep, according to Rebbi Meir. The Chachamim disagree.
2. A Tereifah that is slaughtered with a proper Shechitah is Tahor Min ha'Torah, but it is Metamei Kodshim mid'Rabanan.
3. If one cuts up an animal fetus in the womb of the mother, it becomes permitted with the Shechitah of the mother, but if one cuts up the spleen or the kidney of an animal, it is forbidden even with Shechitah.
4. According to Reish Lakish, in the case of a limb that is mostly detached from the animal, there is a disagreement about whether the Shechitah of the animal is Metaher the limb from Tum'as Neveilah.
5. According to Rebbi Yochanan, everyone agrees that Shechitah is Metaher a mostly detached limb from Tum'as Neveilah.
6. If an animal, with flesh and a limb that is mostly detached, dies without Shechitah, the flesh requires Hechsher in order to become Tamei, and the limb is Metamei like an Ever Min ha'Chai.
7. If the limb of an animal is mostly detached from the animal, the blood of the Shechitah is Machshir the limb, according to Rebbi Meir. Rebbi Shimon disagrees.
A BIT MORE
1. Rebbi Meir regards the extra length of the handle as if it has already been cut off. The Chachamim disagree.
2. Although the Shechitah of a Tereifah does not permit it to be eaten, it purifies it from Tum'as Neveilah.
3. Even if the spleen or the kidney was left inside the mother, it is forbidden.
4. The same disagreement between the Chachamim and Rebbi Meir with regard to whether the Shechitah of the mother is Metaher the protruding limb of a fetus applies also to a mostly-detached limb of the animal.
5. Even Rebbi Meir, who maintains that the Shechitah of the mother is not Metaher the protruding limb of a fetus, agrees that it is Metaher a mostly-detached limb. Even though a protruding limb of a fetus is not part of the actual Guf of the animal, a mostly-detached limb is part of its Guf.
6. The mostly-detached flesh is not Metamei like an Ever Min ha'Chai, but it is Metamei Tum'as Ochlin if it comes into contact with liquid. The limb is Metamei like an Ever Min ha'Chai, which is Metamei like a Neveilah. However, with regard to flesh that is detached from the limb, there is a difference between a Neveilah and an Ever Min ha'Chai: flesh which is detached from an Ever Min ha'Chai is not Metamei like a Neveilah. An Ever Min ha'Chai is Metamei like a Neveilah only if it is a complete limb with flesh, tendons, and bones. However, if it has Hechsher (comes into contact with liquid) it becomes susceptible to Tum'as Ochlin.
7. The Shechitah is Metaher the limb from Tum'as Neveilah, and the blood of the Shechitah is Machshir the limb for susceptibility to Tum'as Ochlin, according to Rebbi Meir. According to Rebbi Shimon, the blood of the Shechitah does not make the limb susceptible to Tum'as Ochlin.
