TEMURAH 22 (Tisha b'Av) - Dedicated by Rabbi Dr. Eli Turkel of Ra'anana, Israel, in memory of his father, Reb Yisrael Shimon ben Shlomo ha'Levi Turkel. Isi Turkel, as he was known, loved Torah and worked to support it literally with his last ounce of strength. He passed away on 10 Av 5740.


1. Rava explains that the phrase "and it was lost" in the Mishnah refers to two different cases.
2. If a Chatas is lost and then found after another animal was consecrated in its place but before it was offered, there is a dispute about the fate of the animal that is not offered.
3. Rava: A Chatas that is lost at night is not considered "lost" (as discussed in the Mishnah).
4. The Gemara discusses the definition of a "lost" Chatas.
5. If a person dedicated a blemished animal to be a Chatas, he must redeem it and bring another animal in its place.


1. The first case is when the Chatas became too old to be offered and then was lost. The second case is when it was lost and then found after it received a blemish. In both cases, if the owner had already offered another animal as a Chatas, this animal is put to death, and if he had not offered another animal as a Chatas, this animal should be put out to pasture until it receives a blemish.
2. Rebbi: The animal that is not offered is put to death. Rabanan: The only unneeded Chatas that is put to death is one that is found after the owner already attained atonement by offering a different animal.
3. The Gemara suggests that this means that even Rebbi (see #2) agrees that such a Chatas is put out to pasture and not put to death if it is found before the other Chatas is offered. Alternatively, the Mishnah may mean that the Rabanan agree that if it became lost overnight it is never put to death, even if it was found after another Chatas was offered in its place.
4. Abaye: It does not mean it was stolen. Rebbi Oshiya: Even if he knows it is present in his herd but he cannot identify it, it is considered lost. Rav Papa: If either he or his shepherd can identify it, it is not lost.
5. Tana Kama: As long as it is redeemed, it is not put to death as another unneeded Chatas animal would be. Rebbi Eliezer b'Rebbi Shimon: If it is alive after the original Chatas is offered, even if it is in the house of the person who redeemed it, it must be put to death.
