Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

There is a quote in the name of Rav Chaim Brisker that ‘miracle items’ are not suitable for use in the Mishkan/Beis Hamikdash since the Torah specifically requires natural occurring materials.  For example, ‘miracle- oil’ would not suitable for the Menorah since the Torah speaks of ‘Shemen Zayis’ and not ‘Shemen Neis’.  How was the Tachash used for the Mishkan if it was a result of a timely miraculous creation?

Shabbos 133 – שבת קלג

Apparently, according to Rebbi Shimon, the passuk (La’asos) would have been applied (in the initial stage of the Gemara) to purposely rubbing off the nega; why would this be allowed?

What was the Gemara’s connection between Rebbi Yossi who prohibits the witnesses to travel, since they are presumed to be unneeded – to our case of Millah where he is completing a Mitzvah?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Why is going out to the Eruv site not considered Hachana, whereas verbalizing his intentions is Hachana?

Eruvin 41 – עירובין מא

The Gemara relates that Rebbi Akiva ate the egg for no reason other than to demonstrate the halacha for his talmidim (that one does not complete a fast Erev Shabbos).   But since that is the halacha, why would he not be required to eat the egg regardless of the talmidim?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

In what way does Shabbos provide ‘Os’ (and is therefore exempt from Tefillin) more than the fulfillment of any other Mitzvos such as Talmud Torah etc.?
