Niddah 40 – נדה מ

The Mishana states that they are tamei with any amount ‘even as little as a mustard seed’ – why is it necessary to elaborate further once it has already stated that any amount will do?

One thought on “Niddah 40 – נדה מ

  1. Although the mishna uses the term ‘kol shehu’ we nevertheless find that this term can be used to describe a large amount, as we find in gemara eruvin (80 amud alef) where the term kol shehu denotes a tefach (see also tosfos eruvin 10 amud alef). It is therefore necessary to explain that in our case kol shehu is referring to even a minute amount.
