Chulin 133


(a) What does Rebbi Aba Amar Rav Huna Amar Rav say about the sinews in the cheek-bone, seeing as they are full of blood?

(b) What objection do we raise to his second statement? Why will there be no problem if the Kohen wants to eat it ...

  1. ... roasted?
  2. ... cooked?
(c) What did Rav Yosef ask Rava (or Rabah [in order to test him]), about a Kohen who grabs Matanos? What are the two ways of viewing his action?

(d) What did Rava reply, based on the Pasuk "Ve'nasan"?

(a) Abaye, who was a Kohen, initially used to grab the Matanos, until he heard Rava's D'rashah.
What did he then switch to doing instead?

(b) But he stopped doing that too, when he learned Rebbi Meir's interpretation of the Pasuk "Va'yatu Acharei ha'Batza".
How *did* Rebbi Meir explain this Pasuk? About whom is the Pasuk talking?

(c) What did he do after that?

(a) Abaye desisted even from accepting the Matanos, once he learned the Beraisa 'ha'Tzenu'im Moshchin es Yedeihem, ve'ha'Gargeranim Cholkim'. About what is the Tana speaking?

(b) Why did he break with that custom every Erev Yom Kipur?

(c) Why was that necessary? Why would everyone not know that he was a Kohen from the fact that he Duchened each day?

(a) What does Rav Yosef suggest that a Kohen should do if, in his vicinity, there lives a Talmid-Chacham who is struggling for Parnasah?

(b) Under what circumstances does he require Makirei Kehunah? What does 'Makirei Kehunah' mean?

(c) What favor did Rava request from the Sha'mes of Mar Yuchna b'rei de'Rav Chana bar Ada (or Bizna), who happened to be a Kohen?

(d) Why was this necessary, seeing as they were anyway preparing him and Rav Safra a 'third calf'?

(a) What was the significance of the Pasuk in Iyov that Rav Safra dreamt the following night? To what does Iyov compare teaching someone who does not properly grasp what he says?

(b) Why did Rav Safra think that the Pasuk was referring to him (since, like Rava, he was a Talmid of Rav Yosef)?

(c) Rav Yosef pointed out to him however, that his ruling did not apply here for two reasons. Firstly, because the Sha'mes (in that capacity) was bound to accede to the request of Rava (who was a great man [ or he was referring to giving the Matanos to a Yisrael even before having acquiring them]). What is the second reason?

(d) If, as we conclude, Rav Safra's dream pertained to Rava, then why did Rav Safra dream it, and not Rava?

(a) Rav Dimi explained to Abaye that basically, the Pasuk in Iyov refers to someone who teaches a Talmid who is not worthy.
What does Rav Yehudah Amar Rav say about such a person, based on the Pasuk there " ... Tochlehu Eish Lo Nupach, Yeira Sarid (Talmid-Chacham) be'Ohalo"?

(b) What did Rebbi Zeira Amar Rav say about someone who teaches a Talmid who is not worthy, based on the Pasuk in Mishlei "ki'Tzeror Even be'Margeimah, Kein Nosen li'Kesil Kavod"?

Answers to questions



(a) Our Mishnah 'ha'Mishtatef *Imahen* Tzarich Lirshom', implies both with a Kohen and with a Nochri. We query this however, from a Beraisa.
What does the Beraisa say about someone who enters into a partnership with a Nochri and someone who sells Pesulei ha'Mukdashin that he redeemed?

(b) What problem do we have with ...

  1. ... the suggestion that the Beraisa is speaking when the Nochri is selling meat in the butchery, in which case everybody already knows that he is a partner?
  2. ... the answer to this refutation, that some people will nevertheless think that the Kohen is buying meat?
  3. ... the following suggestion that the Nochri is the cashier?
(c) How do we resolve ...
  1. ... the current Kashya?
  2. ... the problem with the initial suggestion, that the Nochri is a salesman in the butchery (as an alternative answer)? What is the difference between him and the Kohen in this regard?
(a) Pesulei ha'Mukdashin are not subject to Matanos anyway, as we learned in our Mishnah, so why does the Beraisa need to say that they don't need marking? Why should they?

(b) Then why do they not require marking?

(c) How does Rav Ada bar Ahavah then reconcile the Beraisa with the Mishnah in Bechoros, which permits Shechting and selling Pesulei ha'Mukdashin in a butchery, and weighing them in the conventional manner? By which kind of Pesulei ha'Mukdashin does he establish the Beraisa?

(a) According to Rav Huna, someone who is a partner with a Nochri or with a Kohen in only the head of an animal, is Patur from Lechayayim; in only the leg, is Patur from the Zero'a; in only the innards, is Patur from the Keivah.
What does Chiya bar Rav say?

(b) What does the Beraisa say about a Nochri or a Kohen who purchases one hundredth of the head, the leg or the innards?

(c) Besides another Beraisa, which specifically states that in such a case, he is Chayav to give Matanos from whichever ones the Nochri or the Kohen did not specify, what other objection do we raise to the suggestion that when the Tana says 'Patur min ha'Lechi ... ', he means Patur from all of them?

(d) How do we reconcile Chiya bar Rav with the two Beraisos?

(a) Chiya bar Rav's error was the result of a misunderstanding regarding a third Beraisa, which discusses the twenty-four Matnos Kehunah. Besides a 'K'lal u'P'rat', with what else were the Matnos Kehunah given?

(b) And what does the Tana say about someone who observes the Matnos Kehunah or who contravenes them?

(c) Bechor, Bikurim, Moram min ha'Todah u'me'Eil Nazir and Oros Kodshim are confined to Yerushalayim.
How many of the Matnos Kehunah apply ...

  1. ... only in the Beis-Hamikdash?
  2. ... anywhere in Eretz Yisrael?
(d) The Moram min ha'Todah comprises the Chazeh ve'Shok and one of each of the four kinds of loaves that accompanies the Korban.
What does the Tana then mean by ...
  1. ... 'Moram me'Eil Nazir'?
  2. ... 'Oros Kodshim'?
(a) After the Chatas Beheimah ve'Of, Asham Vaday ve'Taluy and the Log of oil of a Metzora, the remaining Kodshei Mikdash comprise one Shelamim and four kinds of Minchah.
To which ...
  1. ... Shelamim is the Tana referring?
  2. ... two Menachos, after the Sh'tei ha'Lechem and the Lechem ha'Panim is he referring?
(b) Besides Terumah, Terumas Ma'aser and Chalah, which two Matnos Kehunah she'bi'Gevulin does the Kohen receive ...
  1. ... from Chulin animals?
  2. ... that are connected with the Bechorah?
(c) And which two Matanos does he receive from fields?

(d) The tenth and final Matanah of the Matnos Kehunah she'bi'Gevulim is Gezel ha'Ger.
Under which circumstances is it given to the Kohanim of that Mishmar?

(a) How do we now explain Chiya bar Rav's mistake, based on the fact that the Beraisa lists Matnos Kehunah as one?

(b) From which similar set of cases do we prove that this is a fallacy?

(c) Then why does the Tana list each of the two sets as one?

(a) What do we ask with regard to if a Kohen says to a Yisrael 'ha'Rosh she'Lecha, ve'Kulah she'Li'? What are the two sides of the She'eilah?

(b) And we resolve the She'eilah from a Beraisa.
What does the Tana say in a case where a Nochri ...

  1. ... or a Kohen hands his sheep to a Yisrael to shear off the wool?
  2. ... sells the wool of his sheep (even before it has been shorn)?
(c) What does the Tana add regarding someone who purchases Matanos from the Kohen whilst the animal is still alive?

(d) How does help us resolve our She'eilah?
