TEMURAH 20 (7 Av) - (7 Av) - Dedicated in memory of Dr. Simcha Bekelnitzky (Simcha Gedalya ben Shraga Feibush) of Queens, N.Y., Niftar 7 Av 5757, by his wife and daughters. G-d-fearing and knowledgeable, Simcha was well known in the community for his Chesed and Tzedakah. He will long be remembered.


1. If a person pledges to bring an Olah, there is a dispute about what he must bring.
2. The Mishnah discusses what must be done with the Temurah, or offspring of the Temurah, of an Asham.
3. The same dispute (#2) applies to an Asham whose owner either died or substituted another animal for his atonement.
4. The Gemara explains why the same dispute (#2 and #3) needed to be stated both in the case of the Temurah of an Asham and in the case of an Asham whose owner died or attained atonement with another animal.
5. The Gemara discusses whether the offspring of a female animal dedicated to be an Asham can be offered as an Olah.


1. Tana Kama: He must bring a sheep. Rebbi Eliezer ben Azaryah: He may bring even a bird offering.
2. Tana Kama: It must be put out to pasture until it receives a blemish and then be sold. The proceeds should used to purchase public, donated Korbanos. Rebbi Eliezer: They must be put to death. Rebbi Elazar: The proceeds should be used to buy privately donated Korbanos.
3. The difference between a public Korban (Tana Kama) and a private one (Rebbi Elazar) is that the owner performs Semichah to a private Korban and he pays for its libations. If he is a Kohen, he has the right to perform the service and keep the animal's hide.
4. For example, one might have thought that the Rabanan rule only that the proceeds of a *Temurah* are to be used for a donated Korban. Perhaps they agree with Rebbi Eliezer in the case of an Asham whose owner died or attained atonement with another animal. This is one reason why both cases need to be stated.
