  • 6. R. Papa says that everyone agrees that the failure to pay the Chomesh doesn't prevent a person from eating the Ma'aser, however the Rabanan decreed that he may not eat it according to R. Eliezer because of the concern that he will be negligent and will never give the fifth.

  • 10. R. Yochanan says even R. Yehoshua agrees that on Shabbos one may eat Hekdesh that was redeemed even though the fifth was not given because of Kavod Shabbos and also because the treasurer of Hekdesh will make a claim on the fifth and therefore there is less concern for negligence.
  • 11. Hekdesh may not be redeemed on Karka, one who eats Terumah b'Shogeg may only pay from produce of Chulin (the produce becomes Terumah when given to the Kohen) and Ma'aser Sheni may not be redeemed on an Asimon (unstamped coin).

  • 13. If someone steals Terumah without eating it he pays Kefel of the value of the Terumah, if he stole it and ate it b'Shogeg he pays one principle plus a fifth from produce of Chulin and a second principle of the value of the Terumah.

  • Brief Insight
    CHOMESH ME'AKEV

    If an owner redeems his own Ma'aser Sheni but he redeemed only the principle and not the fifth it doesn't prevent him from eating the Ma'aser Sheni outside of Yerushalayim according to R. Eliezer, while R. Yehoshua holds that the failure to give a Chomesh prevents a person from eating Ma'aser Sheni. Tosfos ask that the Din is that Hekdesh which is worth a Manah that was redeemed on a Perutah is a valid redemption. If the full value of the principle doesn't prevent a person from eating the Ma'aser Sheni certainly that Chomesh shall not prevent him. Tosfos answers if the person says the principle and the fifth shall be redeemed on a Perutah it is a valid redemption, however if he doesn't mention the Chomesh at all it prevents him from eating the Ma'aser according to R. Yehoshua.
  • Quick Halachah
    DEMAI IN YERUSHALAYIM

    If Ma'aser Sheni entered Yerushalayim even if it is Demai it is forbidden to take it out because the walls of Yerushalayim absorbed it and the same is true regarding produce that was bought with money of Ma'aser Sheni. If he took it out b'Mezid or b'Shogeg he shall bring it back into Yerushalayim. The Kelitah (absorption) of the walls of Yerushalayim is d'Rabanan. Even Ma'aser which is not worth a Perutah that was brought into Yerushalayim is absorbed by the walls and it is forbidden to take it out, However, money of Ma'aser Sheni may be taken in and out of Yerushalayim. (Rambam Hilchos Ma'aser Sheni 2:12)
  • Chakirah
    It is a Safek if the failure to give a Chomesh prevents a person from eating Ma'aser Sheni. Why should the Chomesh prevent a person from eating the Ma'aser Sheni?
