Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara asks that the Passuk was already applied to determine the size of a Karfef (and is thus unavailable for the rope size).  Tosfos (23b) points to this Gemara as an indication that the Karfef size is a din Torah (otherwise one would be able to derive two hints from the same Pssuk).  How is the din of Karfef – which seems to be a Derabanan concept – have a Torah application?

One thought on “Eruvin 58 – עירובין נח

  1. After the Mishna, the Gemara asks how do we know to add a Karfef. The Gemara says that we learn this from Vechutza La. This Passuk is by the cities of the Leviim. That would mean that the Shiur of a Karfef is a Deoraysa concept since it is necessary for the Leviim.
