Answers to questions



(a) On what basis does the Tana Kama of a Beraisa sentence a person to Malkos for eating a Gid ha'Nasheh that is less than a k'Zayis?

(b) Rebbi Yehudah counters this by citing the Pasuk in Vayishlach "Al-kein Lo Yochlu B'nei Yisrael es Gid ha'Nasheh".
What does he extrapolate from there?

(c) What do the Rabbanan learn from "Yochlu"?

(d) Rebbi Yehudah learns that from "Asher al Kaf ha'Yarech".
What do the Rabbanan learn from there?

(a) How do the Rabbanan counter Rebbi Yehudah's D'rashah from "ha'Yarech", 'de'Kulah Yerech' (even the part of the Gid that is not on the Kaf)? What do they learn from "ha'Yarech"?

(b) But do we not need "Kaf" to preclude the Gid ha'Nasheh of a bird?

(c) What have we proved from this Beraisa?

(a) What does our Mishnah say about a thigh that has been cooked together with the Gid ha'Nasheh?

(b) The Tana measures the Shi'ur as if the thigh was turnip, and the Gid, meat (even though if, it was a different kind of vegetable, it would require a little more or a little less).
What is the source for that?

(c) And what does the Tana say about a Gid ha'Nasheh that has been cooked together with other Gidin in a case where ...

  1. ... one recognizes the Gid ha'Nasheh?
  2. ... one does not recognize it?
(a) What will be the Din with regard to the gravy of such a mixture?

(b) And what does the Tana finally say about a piece of Neveilah or Tamei fish that is cooked with other Kasher pieces of the same kind?

(a) Shmuel qualifies the opening Din in our Mishnah.
What does he say in a case where the thigh was not cooked together with its Gid ha'Nasheh, but roasted? Why is that?

(b) What did Rav Huna say about a kid that one roasted together with its Cheilev?

(c) What did he mean by 'even from the tip of its ears' (see Tosfos DH 'Afilu')?

(d) How do we reconcile that with Shmuel?
