Pesachim 20: Sprinkling Wine Is a Thing

The case of the needle in the cow. Which brings us to imposing limitations on the case, and establishing the principles of what is susceptible to tumah (hibat ha-kodesh – the belovedness of the consecrated). Also – a discussion on the difference of oil vs wine, with regard to either of them as terumah, on the first day of Chanukah, no less. How either of these can be used in ways that go beyond their usual use (as food and drink).
