Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara discusses kilayim when a person and animal perform a join task.  Tosfos says this is referring to owner who is pulling the rope (of the reigns) together with the animal.  Since the rope is ‘batel’ to the animal and is not considered a load (even for the owner holding on to it) with regards to Shabbos, why is it considered carrying when it comes to kilayim?

A boat which is carried via oxen is considered a mobile object.  Why is a boat carried by water not considered the same?

 

Shabbos 85 – שבת פה

When Shmuel allowed the patches to be planted side by side, the Gemara asked “But the leaves intermingle!”.  Why doesn’t the Gemara simply ask from the fact that the two parallel rows are only separated by two tefachim – which is inadequate?

Rav Yochanan allows the (filled) round patches to be planted side by side, apparently by employing the concept of ‘Rosh Tur’ – since each patch is independently regarded.  But the Gemara concludes that we will only apply ‘Rosh Tur’ to a patch shaped as a square – how is this compatible?

Shabbos 139 – שבת קלט

The Gemara says covering half the barrel with a rag is allowed, as long as it is does not fully cover – which would constitute an Ohel (Rashi).  Why is a partial covering not be an Ohel (assuming there is a tefach)?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

We learn that a Korah must be within twenty to be noticeable; however, Rebbi Yehuda allows it to be placed above as well.  How is it going to be noticed?

The Gemara says that the ‘Rabim’ will pay attention and maintain the Korah properly, as opposed to a ‘Yachid’ who might neglect it.  Why are the Rabim superior to an individual, since they too are merely a multitude of individuals?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Although Rav doesn’t subscribe to a Tzuras Hapesach over ten amos for Shabbos, he agrees that it can be applied for Kilayim, as we see in the Braisa (amud beis – see Tosfos 6a).  How can we explain the difference between Kilayim and Shabbos?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Abaye explains that the Rabanan agree that a ‘Makom Chashuv’ is only achieved with four tefachim; if so how can we explain that Lavud is set at three?

Tosfos writes, that although we conclude in the Gemara that half Omed half Parutz is fine, that won’t necessarily apply to other area such as issur or tuma, where half and half may not be sufficient – how can we explain this difference?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Rashi explains that one needs to be able to see the Mechitza of ten tefachim (according to Rav Chisda).  If so, even when the ground is elevated a full ten tefachim but there is a shallow Mechitza at the edge (blocking view of the ten tefach elevation) how can it be considered a Mechitza?
