Shabbos 29 – שבת כט

The Gemara tells us that ‘Beis Nitza’ were conscientious people and the gezeira (of dragging a heavy bench on a stone floor) did not apply to them.  Asks Rav Moshe Feinstein, we don’t seem to find that the Chachamim would differentiate between people when applying a gezeira; if so how were Beis Nitza allowed to exempt themselves from a universal gezeira?

(Although we learned earlier about exemptions for Kohanim in the Beis Hamikdash, or by the Korban Pesach, that is because the gezeira was never meant to apply to those scenarios in the first place)

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara located a Tanna who holds ’Ein Bereira’ by a Derabanan – from the Braisa of Techumin.  Tosfos explains that we could not prove this from the Braisa of Maaser, since although Maaser of vegetables is Derabanan, nevertheless the concept of Maaser is rooted in Torah, and is therefore (perhaps ) more stringent.  But isn’t Techumin also rooted in Torah, according to the opinions who hold that the Twelve Mil limit is min hatorah?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

We learn that even a Kohen who is Tamei may enter the Beis Hamikdash to repair the gold plated walls.  How can the repair of the gold plating – whose absence presumably wouldn’t invalidate the Mikdash, override the absolute issur of entering the Mikdash in a state of Tuma’h?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

We learn that “Hashem summoned darkness” – does that imply that darkness is more than merely the absence of light?

Dovid Hamelech said to Hashem ‘You turned Olam Hazeh into light for me’ – which Rashi explains as referring to the time of Shlomo Hamelech.  But was Dovid not already then in Olam Habba?

Please note the following correction to yesterday’s Shiur:

“תלמיד חכם מנדה לעצמו ומיפר לעצמו” (ten lines from the bottom on amud alef) should be correctly translated as “he can place himself in Niduy, and release himself as well”
