Shabbos 131 – שבת קלא

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?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Why can’t one place cushions under the large pieces of glass (whose falling doesn’t result in significant loss) since he will shake them off, thus avoiding nullification of the kli (cushions)?

Spoiled honey is muktza, since it is only suitable for healing the animal’s wound.  It would appear from the Gemara (53b) that Refu’ah of an animal is permissible on Shabbos (see Rif). If so, why is the honey muktza if it suitable for use on Shabbos?

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)?

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?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

According to the opinion that a Lechi functions based on the principle of mechitza, how can a Lechi be less than three tefachim which is generally considered Lavud?

 

Eruvin 15 – עירובין טו

The Mishna says a Pirtza greater than ten nullifies the Mechitza.  Perhaps this only applies to this type of vertical-only Mechitza described here; how do we know this applies also to a properly constructed Mechitza?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara says there were not enough people to (around Rav Chanilay) to reach the Techum.  Why couldn’t they simply walk him along until they all reached the Techum together; since even a mobile Mechitza is valid?
