Today’s Daf is dedicated for Yom HaShoah in memory of all those who died in the Holocaust. And by Di Gittel Kuchar “in honor of her father’s second yartzeit, Moshe Ben Abraham Neuhauser a Holocaust survivor. Dad often spoke about life before and during the Shoah. At times I suffered from survivor’s guilt as a child of survivors, but then I turned it around from Dad’s example. One survives to fulfill a mission to learn, teach and live yiddishkeit. He would be so proud of all of us on our daily Daf journey as he too loved his daily learning.” And by Ellen Werlin in honor of her sister, Rachel Geballe, on the occasion of her birthday. “With thanks to her for introducing myself and her niece, Avigayil, to the daf, as well as for other blessings of having her as a sister and an aunt.”

Where was the golden altar situated? The menorah? In the time of King Solomon, there were also 10 menorahs. Where were they situated? Were they lit or was only the main one used? What were the 13 shofarot for collecting money in the Temple used for? There is a debate regarding some of them – were they used only for voluntary offerings or also for obligatory ones? According to Rabbi Yehuda, the one labeled “pairs” was not used for obligatory offerings in case one of those who put money in died. If that were to happen, the money would need to be destroyed and as it is now mixed with other money, all the money would be prohibited. If one volunteers wood or frankincense, what is the amount of each that needs to be brought?
