(a)(Shmuel): Seritah with an instrument is liable.

(b)Question (Beraisa): Seritah and Gedidah are the same, just Seritah is by hand, and Gedidah is with an instrument.

(c)Answer: Shmuel's law is according to R. Yosi.

(d)A reciter of Beraisos: One is liable due to a Mes whether he scratched by hand or with an instrument;

1.One who scratches for the sake of idolatry is liable only by hand.

(e)Objection: The verse says just the contrary - "va'Yisgodedu k'Mishpatam ba'Charavos uva'Rmachim"!

(f)Correction: One who scratches for the sake of idolatry is liable only with an instrument.


(a)(Mishnah): He is lashed for each Pe'as ha'Rosh.

(b)Rav Sheshes pointed to the sideburns

(c)(Mishnah): He is lashed for each Pe'as ha'Zakan, i.e. two on each side and one below.

(d)Rav Sheshes pointed to the five corners.

(e)(Mishnah - R. Eliezer): If he cut them at once (at the same moment; alternatively, with one warning, without stopping), he is liable only once.

(f)He holds that one Lav forbids all the corners.

(g)(Mishnah): He is liable only if he shaved (the beard; some say, or the sideburns) with a razor.

(h)(Beraisa) Suggestion: Perhaps "u'Fe'as Zekanam Lo Yegalechu" obligates for shaving with scissors!

1.Rejection: "V'Lo Sashchis" - he is liable only if the entire hair is removed.

2.Suggestion: Perhaps one is liable for removing the hair with a planing tool (or tweezers)!

3.Rejection: "Lo Yegalechu."

i.He is liable only for shaving that removes the entire hair, i.e. with a razor.

(i)(Mishnah - R. Eliezer): He is liable even if he cut them with a planing tool (or tweezers).

(j)Question: No matter how he learns, this is difficult!

1.If R. Eliezer learns the Gezerah Shavah "Pe'as- Pe'as" (to teach that "Lo Yegalechu" written regarding Kohanim applies to "v'Lo Sashchis" written regarding Yisraelim), he should obligate only for a razor;

2.If he does not learn the Gezerah Shavah, he should obligate also for scissors!

(k)Answer: He learns the Gezerah Shavah. He holds that a planing tool (and tweezers) also shave.


(a)(Mishnah): Tattooing (is done by making incisions in the skin and writing with dye, which gets absorbed in the skin):

1.He is liable only if he wrote and made incisions;

2.He is liable for writing with dye, mascara or anything that makes a lasting impression.

(b)R. Shimon says, he is liable only if he writes Hash-m's name - "u'Chsoves Ka'a'ka Lo Sitnu Bachem Ani Hash-m.

(c)(Gemara - Rav Acha brei d'Rava) Question: Must he write 'Ani Hashem'?

(d)Answer (Rav Ashi): R. Shimon does not refer to Hash-m's name;

1.(Bar Kapara - Beraisa): He is liable only if he writes the name of idolatry - "... Ani Hash-m", and no other (god is Hash-m).

(e)(Rav Malkiya): One may not put ashes on a wound, because it looks like a tattoo.

(f)Version #1 (Rav Chanina brei d'Rav Ika): (Rav Malkiya taught three teachings, and Rav Malkiyo taught three.) Rav Malkiyo taught about spit, slaves, and hair follicles;

1.Rav Malkiya taught about Bluris (hair that is grown long and shaved off for the sake of idolatry), ashes, and cheese.

(g)Version #2 (Rav Papa): Rav Malkiya taught the teachings that explain Mishnayos and Beraisos. Rav Malkiya taught the teachings that have no source in the Tana'im.

(h)The versions argue regarding slaves (Rav Papa attributes it to Rav Malkiya. Some say that they also argue about ashes; Rav Papa attributes it to Rav Malkiyo).

(i)Rav Bivi bar Abaye was careful not to put ashes even on a bloodletting wound.

(j)(Rav Ashi): Wherever there is a wound, it is permitted (all recognize that this is for healing).


(a)(Mishnah): If a Nazir was drinking wine (or exposing himself to Tum'as Mes, or shaving his hair) all day, he is lashed only once. If he was warned repeatedly, he is lashed for each warning he transgressed.

(b)If a man was wearing Sha'atnez all day, he is lashed only once. If he was warned repeatedly, and he removed the garment and put it on again, he is lashed for each time.


(c)One can be lashed eight times for plowing one furrow:

1.He plows with a Hekdesh ox and donkey;

2.He plows where Kil'ayim was planted in a vineyard, in Shemitah, on Yom Tov;

3.He is a Kohen and a Nazir plowing over Tum'as Mes.

(d)Chananya ben Chakinai says, he can be lashed also for wearing Kil'ayim;

1.Chachamim: That is not due to plowing.

2.Chananya: Also Tum'ah of a Nazir is not due to plowing!

(e)(Gemara - Rav Bivi): He need not remove the garment and put it on again. Rather, even if he removed his arm from the sleeve and puts it in again, he is liable for each time.

(f)Rav Acha brei d'Rav Ika demonstrated this ('Rashi' on the Rif; Rivan - he gestured that he must remove and put back on the entire garment).

(g)(Rav Ashi): Even if he wears it long enough to remove it and put it on again, he is lashed (for each warning).


(a)(Mishnah): For plowing one furrow...

(b)(R. Yanai): Rabanan concluded that one who covers seeds of Kil'ayim is lashed.

(c)R. Yochanan: Our Mishnah teaches this. One of the eight sets of lashes is for Kil'ayim. Surely, this is for covering seeds of Kil'ayim!

(d)R. Yanai: You found the support because I told you the law!

(e)Reish Lakish: Had R. Yanai not agreed with you, I would have said that the Mishnah is like R. Akiva, who says that one is lashed for being Mekayem Kil'ayim! (Aruch - he leaves it in his field; Tosfos (4B DH Ha) - he makes a fence to protect it.)

(f)Question: Where do we find that R. Akiva says so?

(g)Answer (Beraisa): One who weeds, or covers Kil'ayim is lashed;

1.R. Akiva says, even one who is Mekayem.

(h)Question: What is his reason?

(i)Answer (Beraisa) Question: "Sadcha Lo Sizra Kil'ayim" forbids only seeding. What is the source to forbid Mekayem?

1.Answer: (The previous word is Kil'ayim, so we read) "Kil'ayim Sadcha Lo" (Kil'ayim may not be in your field).


(a)Question #1 (Ula): He should be lashed also for planting on Yom Tov (because the plowing helps the Kil'ayim grow, like we established)!

(b)Answer #1 (Rav Nachman): Indeed, he is. The Tana omitted this.

(c)Objection (Ula): The Tana said that one can be lashed eight times. You cannot say that he omitted something!

(d)Answer #2 (Rava): The Melachos of Yom Tov are not separated (one is lashed only once even if he does several Melachos at the same time).

(e)Ula: That is a good answer.
