*********************GIRSA SECTION*********************

We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, the Tzon Kodashim, the Vilna Ga'on and the marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section is devoted to any other important corrections that Acharonim have pointed out in the Gemara, Rashi and Tosfos.

[1] Gemara 20a [line 12]:

Should be corrected as suggested by Shitah Mekubetzes #6

(This is also the Girsa of Rashi DH Trei תרי and Tosfos DH d'Ika דאיכא; the Chok Nasan also made this Girsa change)

[2] Gemara [line 35]:

Should be corrected as suggested by Shitah Mekubetzes #13

[3] Rashi 20a DH Ho'il u'Mosar ha'Pesach ד"ה הואיל ומותר הפסח:

The words "Shem Shelamim Alah Ho'il" שם שלמים עלה הואיל

should be "Shem Shelamim Alah v'Ho'il" שם שלמים עלה והואיל (Rashash)

[4] Rashi DH Ashir Hu ד"ה עשיר הוא:

Perhaps the words "v'Iy Nami Ani Hu" ואי נמי עני הוא

should be "v'Iy Nami Nedavah Hu" (M. KORNFELD)


1)[line 4]הרועה להסתאבHA'RO'EH L'HISTA'EV- an animal that needs to graze until it receives a Mum in order to be redeemed

2)[line 38]קדושת הגוף אקדשינהוKEDUSHAS HA'GUF AKDESHINHU- he consecrated it with Kedushas ha'Guf. That is, he was Makdish the entire body of the animal to HaSh-m, and thus it must be brought as an Olah and not as a Shelamim (which is eaten in part by its owner).

See Background to Temurah 13:9.

4)[line 20]נסכיה משל ציבורNESACHEHA MI'SHEL TZIBUR- and its Nesachim are brought from communal funds. That is, he need not bring Nesachim, because the Tzibur brings them (not "and" the Tzibur brings them; in the Mishnayos, the letter "Vav" ("and") is often substituted for the letter "Shin" ("because"); see Beitzah 7b).
