(b) What dos he allow one to do with regard to inviting others?
(c) Why is one forbidden to use a sponge (even if it has a handle)?
(d) What else may one not do for the same reason?
(a) What does the Tana Kama say about ...
1. ... squeezing fruit in order to extract its liquid?
2. ... juice that oozed out by itself?
(b) What is the reason for ..
1. ... the former ruling?
2. ... the latter ruling?
(a) How does Rebbi Yehudah qualify this ruling? On what condition does he permit it?
(b) What is the reason for the distinction?
(c) What are the exceptions ...
1. ... to Rebbi Yehudah's lenient ruling?
2. ... to the Tana Kama's stringent ruling?
(d) What is the reason for ...
1. ... Rebbi Yehudah's two exceptions?
2. ... the Tana Kama's exception?
(e) In which case do they then argue?
(a) What does the Mishnah say about washing in hot water, food that has already been cooked, on Shabbos?
(b) Why is that?
(c) What is one not however, permitted to do?
(a) What does the Tana say in principle, about washing in hot water uncooked food on Shabbos?
(b) One of the exceptions is an 'old salted fish'. What is considered 'old'?
(c) Some include 'small salted fish' in this list. In any event, the Tana certainly includes Kulyas ha'Ispanin. What is 'Kulyas ha'Ispanin'?
(d) Why is it forbidden to wash it?
(a) On what condition does the Mishnah permit breaking open a barrel on Shabbos to get to the dried figs inside it?
(b) Why does the Tana permit it?
(c) On what grounds does Rebbi Yehudah forbid one to make a hole in the lid of a barrel on Shabbos?
(d) How does one then gain access to its contents?
(e) What do the Chachamim (or Rebbi Yossi) say?
(a) What do the Chachamim/Rebbi Yossi say about making a hole in the side of the barrel?
(b) Why the difference?
(c) Why is it preferable to make a hole in the side than on top?
(a) What does the Mishnah say about stopping up a hole in the barrel with wax?
(b) Rebbi Yehudah related an incident that was told to Raban Yochanan ben Zakai in Arav, where somebody did that. What did to Raban Yochanan ben Zakai comment?
(a) The Mishnah now permits placing on Shabbos, a cooked dish into an empty pit, drinking water into a pool of undrinkable water and cold water into hot water. Why would one place ...
1. ... a cooked dish into a pit?
2. ... drinking water into water that is undrinkable?
(b) What is the Chidush in the first case? Why might we have thought that Chazal would forbid placing a cooked dish into a pit?
(c) The second case is obvious, and the Tana only inserts it because of its similarity to the third case. What is the Chidush there? Why might we have thought that it is forbidden to place cold water into hot water?
(a) What does the Tana say about someone who falls into a pool of water with his clothes whilst travelling on Shabbos?
(b) Why might we have thought that it is forbidden?

1. ... them to dry their whole bodies?
2. ... only one towel between them?
(c) Why the difference between one person and ten people?
(d) Which point in this Mishnah is not Halachah?
(a) What distinction does the Tana make between anointing one's body on Shabbos using oil or rubbing oneself, on the one hand, and massaging oneself (See Tos. Yom-Tov), on the other?
(b) On what grounds does he forbid scratching oneself with a back-scratcher on Shabbos (See Tiferes Yisrael).
(a) What does the Tana say about going down to the River Kurdima (or Pulima [See Tos. Yom-Tov]) on Shabbos?
(b) According to some commentaries, this is a valley (or river with a muddy embankment) which is slippery. Why did the Chachamim therefore issue this prohibition?
(c) What other reason do they give for the prohibition (which seems to apply no less during the week as on Shabbos)?
(a) The Tana forbids performing Apiktozen on Shabbos. What is Apiktozen the acronym of?
