Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Mishna (in Keilim which discusses shiurim based on personal size) does not list the din of four ammos, since it doesn’t apply universally.  Why does it list the din of two se’udos (for Eruv) which is also not absolute (see 30b)?

One thought on “Eruvin 48 – עירובין מח

  1. The reason Rebbe Shimon Ben Elazar holds that an over-eater uses the same Shiur as everyone else is because of Batla Daato Lechal Adam. This means that in essence the Shiur is based on the individual’s Shiur. In the case of four Ammos, we have a scenario where the Shiur is based on a universal measurement and not about the individual at all.
