Bechoros 27

BECHOROS 27 - dedicated by Hagaon Rav Mordechai Rabin of London, now living in Yerushalayim.


(a) Despite the previous Halachah (forbidding a Yisrael to allow a Kohen, a Levi or a Yisrael to assist him, in order to receive the Matnos Kehunah ... , the Beraisa concludes that by all of them, the owner has Tovas Hana'ah.
What is 'Tovas Hana'ah'?

(b) What solitary example does the Tana give to explain this?

(c) Why did he not also present a case of Tovas Hana'ah by a Bechor?

(d) Why then, does Tovas Hana'ah apply to Terumah? In what way is Terumah different than Bechor?

(a) What did Rava say about Terumas Chutz la'Aretz? Why is that?

(b) To whom did Rav Chama subsequently give his Terumas Chutz la'Aretz?

(c) According to Shmuel, Terumas Chutz la'Aretz is Bateil be'Rov. How much does Terumas Eretz Yisrael require in order to become Bateil?

(d) Rabah went even further.
What did he used to do?

(a) What did Rav Huna b'rei de'Rav Yehoshua do with his Terumas Chutz la'Aretz wine?

(b) What did Shmuel say about Terumas Chutz la'Aretz being eaten by a Tamei person? To which kind of Tum'ah did he restrict the Isur of Tum'ah?

(c) What did he say about touching it?

(a) What did Ravina extrapolate from Shmuel's latter ruling regarding a Nidah preparing her dough?

(b) Whom did he permit to eat it?

(c) Under what circumstances might even a grown-up Kohen be included in 'Kohen Katan'?

(d) What does one do if there is no Kohen Katan available? What should one not do with the second dough?

(a) Rav Nachman, Rav Amram and Rami bar Chama were traveling on a ship when a woman asked them a She'eilah.
Why was Rav Amram not present at that moment?

(b) What did she ask about a Tamei Meis who has Toveled, eating Terumas Chutz la'Aretz?

(c) On what grounds did Rav Nachman initially want to permit eating it immediately?

(d) What did Rami bar Chama (who was much younger than the other two men) mean, when he asked whether one should not show respect for the old man?
Which old man?

(a) Meanwhile, Rav Amram returned. He quoted Rav, but added that the Halachah is not like him.
What did Rav say?

(b) And he based this ruling on a statement by Mar Zutra in the name of Rav Sheishes.
What did Mar Zutra say about a Tamei Sheretz?

Answers to questions



(a) What do we extrapolate from the Lashon of the Mishnah 'Nolad Bo Mum be'Soch *Shenaso*'?

(b) How does Rav Yehudah Amar Rav learn this from the Pasuk in Re'ei "Lifnei Hashem Elokecha Sochlenu Shanah be'Shanah"?

(c) What does de'Bei Rav learn from this Pasuk (in connection with the Korban Bechor)?

(d) de'Bei Rav, on the other hand, agrees with the D'rashah of Rav Acha bar Ya'akov.
What does Rav Acha bar Ya'akov learn from the Pasuk in Tazri'a (in connection with the Korban of a Yoledes) "Keves ben Shenaso"?

(a) What does Rav Yehudah Amar Rav then learn from the Pasuk in Korach (in connection with Bechor) "u'Vesaram Yih'yeh Lach ka'Chazeih ha'Tenufah ... "?

(b) How does de'Bei Rav counter that? How is it possible for the Pasuk not to refer to a Shelamim?

(c) Rav Yehudah Amar Rav refutes that suggestion on account of the words "Yih'yeh Lach".
What does he extrapolate from there?

(a) Tana de'Bei Rav maintains that "u'Vesaram Yih'yeh Lach" is needed to teach us that a Bechor Ba'al-Mum must be given to the Kohen.
From which word in the same Pasuk does Rav Yehudah Amar Rav extrapolate the same thing?

(b) How does Tana de'Bei Rav interpret "u'Vesaram"?
