BAVA BASRA 2-8 - Two weeks of study material have been dedicated by Mrs. Estanne Abraham Fawer to honor the Yahrzeit of her father, Rav Mordechai ben Eliezer Zvi (Rabbi Morton Weiner) Z'L, who passed away on 18 Teves 5760. May the merit of supporting and advancing Dafyomi study -- which was so important to Rav Weiner -- during the weeks of his Yahrzeit serve as an Iluy for his Neshamah.

1) WHEN A PERSON IS CALLED A RESIDENT OF A CITY (Yerushalmi Halachah 4 Daf 2a)

תני שעה שם שלשים יום הרי הוא כאנשי העיר לקופה.

(a) Beraisa: If he was there for 30 days, he is considered like a resident of the city for donating to the city's charity fund.

לכסות ששה חדשים.

(b) If he was there for six months, he must also donate to the fund that supplies clothes to the poor.

לפסים ולזימיות שנים עשר חדש

(c) If he was there for 12 months, he must now pay taxes called pasim and zimiyos.

ובתר כל הלין מילין איתמר לפסים ולזימיות שנים עשר חדש.

(d) Question: When the Mishnah in Peah discusses the charity fund and the clothing fund, it teaches that if a poor man was residing there for 12 months, he may receive from these funds. However, the reference to pasim and zimiyos was concerning giving these taxes after residing there for 12 months. What's the connection between receiving and collecting?

א"ר יוסי בי ר' בון לחיטי הפסח בין לישא בין ליתן:

(e) Answer (R. Yosi bei R. Bun): Concerning the pasim and zimiyos taxes, after 12 months he must also give wheat for Pesach and if he is poor he may receive it.
