YOMA 51 - dedicated l'Iluy Nishmas Reb Aharon Dovid ben Elimelech Shmuel Kornfeld (Muncasz/Israel/New York), who passed away on 3 Av 5761, by his daughter, Shifra, and family. May his love for Torah and for Eretz Yisrael be preserved in all of his descendants.


1. There is a dispute in the Gemara about whether Pesach Sheni overrides Tum'ah.
2. Tana Kama: How can Pesach Sheni override Tum'ah if the reason why the Korban was not brought on Pesach was because of Tum'ah?
3. The Kohen Gadol must use his own money to buy the bull which he offers to atone for himself and his fellow Kohanim.
4. There is a dispute about whether one or two curtains separated between the Kodesh and the Kodesh ha'Kodashim.
5. There is a dispute about where the Kohen Gadol would walk in the Heichal in order to get to the Kodesh ha'Kodashim.


1. Everyone agrees that it overrides Shabbos.
2. Rebbi Yehudah: The verse, "Like all of the laws of the Pesach he should do it," indicates that it should override Tum'ah, just as the first Pesach overrides Tum'ah. (This refers to when the Tzibur is Tamei, but not to when an individual is Tamei).
3. However, the Torah considers the money used to buy the bull as belonging to all of the Kohanim. Therefore, if the Kohen Gadol dies, it is not considered as though the sole owner of the Chatas died (for otherwise the Korban would have to die), and the animal may be offered by the next Kohen Gadol.
4. Tana Kama: There were two curtains with a space of one Amah between them. Rebbi Yosi: There was only one curtain.
5. One opinion says that he would walk between the Menorah and the Mizbe'ach (on the south side). Another opinion says that he would walk between the Shulchan and the Mizbe'ach (on the north side). A third opinion says that he would walk between the Shulchan and the wall.
