PESACHIM 94 (18 Tishrei) - dedicated by Reb Tuvya Marcus and family (Baltimore/Yerushalayim) in honor of the Yahrzeit of his father, Binyomin Leib ben Aharon Marcus.


1. If a person was traveling on Erev Pesach and he could get to the Azarah on time if he would ride a horse but he does not do so, he is not liable for not coming to the Azarah to bring the Korban Pesach.
2. If one is traveling slowly with his family and does not break away to go ahead of them to offer the Korban Pesach, he is liable for Kares.
3. The Gemara discusses the size of various countries.
4. The Gemara continues by saying that the entire world is miniscule compared to these three places: Gan, Eden, and Gehinom.
5. The Gemara explains how we determine whether most people are Tahor or Tamei when it comes to offering the Korban Pesach.


1. This is derived from the verse, "And he was not on the road [.. he will be cut off]." This implies that if he was on the road, he is not liable for Kares.
2. The Beraisa cites a case in which one's family was traveling with him slowly in a convoy, and he was close enough to the Beis ha'Mikdash that he was no longer considered on the road. If he does not go ahead of his family in order to offer the Korban Pesach (assuming he is not a victim of forced circumstances), he is liable for Kares.
3. It says that Mitzrayim is 400 squared Parsa'os, and yet it is only one sixth of the size of Kush, which is one sixtieth of the size of the world.
4. It says that the world is one sixtieth of the size of the Gan in Eden, and that the Gan is only one sixtieth of the size of Eden, which is only one sixtieth of the size of Gehinom.
5. The Gemara explains that the status of the majority of people in the Azarah determines whether it is a Korban Pesach being offered in a state of Taharah or in a state of Tum'ah.
