Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Rebbi Yehuda seems to agree that the limit of a standard pietza is ten amos; which is presumably learned from Halacha lemoshe misinai.  If so, how can he allow an opening of thirteen by Pasei Bira’os?

Shabbos 152 – שבת קנב

In our Gemara we find Rebbi Chiya who says that (past a certain point – sealing coffin/disintegration of flesh) a Mes is unaware of what is said by people.  How is this compatible with Rebbi Chiya in Brachos (18a) who maintained that any Mes is well aware of events transpiring in this world?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Mishna says if one writes on his flesh he is chayav. Why is this case considered kesiva, since it will disappear due to the effect of the body’s moisture/heat?

 

Brachos 28 – ברכות כח

Rabban Yochanan ben Zakai expressed to his students his uncertainty regarding “on which path they will take me – Gehinom or Gan Eden”.  However at the very end the Gemara relates that he exclaimed “prepare a chair for Chizkiyahu who has come to escort me” which apparently indicates he was on the way to Gan Eden!
