YOMA 58 (28 Sivan) - Dedicated in memory of Hagaon Rav Yisroel Zev [ben Rav Avrohom Tzvi] Gustman zt"l, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Netzach Yisrael-Ramailes (Vilna, Brooklyn, Yerushalayim), author of Kuntresei Shi'urim, and renowned Dayan in pre/post-war Vilna, on the occasion of his Yahrzeit. Dedicated by his Talmidim, Harav Eliezer Stern of Brooklyn, New York, and Dr. Yehoshua Daniel of Efrat.


1. The Gemara asks whether a Kohen may perform Kabalas ha'Dam with a vessel inside the vessel that he is holding.
2. If a Kohen performs an Avodah while standing on his friend's foot or on a vessel, the Avodah is invalid.
3. There are some who ask this question (#1) in a different manner.
4. The Gemara discusses whether wrapping a piece of a palm tree inside the vessel into which the blood falls is a separation.
5. All blood that was spilled in the Beis ha'Mikdash would eventually leave through a stream leading to Nachal Kidron.


1. Must he hold the vessel into which the blood actually falls, or since both are holy vessels that may be used to receive the blood, the vessel he is holding is not considered a separation between his hand and the vessel into which the blood is actually falling?
2. He must stand on the floor of the Beis ha'Mikdash. Even the foot of his friend is considered a separation, since he cannot nullify another Kohen's foot.
3. They do not ask whether the first vessel is a separation, but whether it is considered a normal way to perform Avodah and fulfills the description of Avodah. The Gemara answers that the verse indicates that it is within the boundaries of normal Avodah.
4. The Gemara answers that one may receive the blood in this manner, since the blood seeps through the palm frond and reaches the walls of the vessel. In contrast, one may not collect the Kemitzah of a flour offering in this manner, since the palm frond will separate between the Kemitzah and the walls of the vessel.
5. The Beis ha'Mikdash treasury would sell the waters rich with the blood of the Korbanos to gardeners and farmers who would use it to water and fertilize their fields.
