Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

All agree an Asheira can be used for a Lechi, since there is no Shiur requirement.  Since the Mishna (14b) requires the Lechi to be ten tefachim high, how can Asheira be valid?

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?

 

Eruvin 6 – עירובין ו

We learn that a Reshus Harabim is an area without walls, similar to the Midbar.  The Gemara in Shabbos (97b) says that the Machane of Levi was a Reshus Harabim; how can an area surrounded by tents be considered a Reshus Harabim?

Eruvin 3 – עירובין ג

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?

Eruvin 2 – עירובין ב

Why is there no mention in the Mishna regarding the minimum height of a Kora (ten tefachim – see 3b)?

The Gemara says the Heichal had doors for ‘tznius’ – why wasn’t that achieved by the curtain (that was hanging over the entrance) and how was this achieved by the doors which were apparently open all day (to allow for shechita)?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara asks how come the machshirin of Tzitzis and Mezuza don’t override Shabbos; why can’t we simply ask from the fact that a private korban cannot be brought on Shabbos – hence we see that even an actual Mitzva cannot override Shabbos?
