Today’s Daf is sponsored by Barbara Ashkenas “in honor of her wonderful husband Ron whose warm support of my learning Daf Yomi spirited me to keep learning. I thank him with my full heart!” And in memory of Rav Ronen Neuwirth z”l.聽

What is the date for the new year for animal tithes? There are three different opinions. The gemara explains each one. What happens with animals that are born at the very end of the year and are not yet ready to be offered as sacrifices (as they need to be eight days old) – are they part of the tithe for the outgoing or incoming year? The mishna describes how many baskets were used for the activity of terumat halishka, designating the money that was collected for purchasing the sacrifices. How were the baskets labeled? The one who goes to do this activity had strict rules regarding dress to ensure that he wasn’t suspected of stealing money. The rabbis learn from this mishna the size of baskets that were mentioned in the mishna in Masechet Shabbat regarding how many baskets are allowed to be moved on Shabbat. Other measurements are discussed here as well, such as the amount of wine that one is liable for carrying if one takes it out to the public domain on Shabbat. This measurement is derived from the amount one needs to have in each of the four cups on the night of Passover. Can one drink all four cups at once? Can one drink them little by little? One must drink red wine as it is considered stronger wine. Can one drink other types of wines such as sweet wine, cooked wine, diluted wine, spiced wine – many of which could not be offered as libations on the altar?
