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 discusses whether Techumin or Hotazaah (according to Tosfos) were included in ‘Shabbbos of Marah’ – why would these be considered different than all other dinim of Shabbos?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara asks: “If one cannot demand the return of a Yom Tov loan, then what does it mean that Shemitta is ‘Meshamet’ (since he cannot collect in any case – Rashi)”.  Rashi explained earlier that Rav Yosef is only discussing the inability to collect a Yom Tov loan through the power of Beis Din; it would seem that he is still certainly owed the money, and may rightfully collect upon his own authority.  Why can’t Shemitta be referring to the negation of that right?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

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:

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?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara says the halacha of ‘Beitza’ is considered a greater chiddush since it can lead to a Melacha.  But isn’t likewise the issur of separating Teruma also based on a concern that it may lead to fixing a keli – which is a Melacha?

In the case of Terumah, why does he need to add ‘Ein bidevorai kelum’?
