*********************GIRSA SECTION*********************

We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach and the marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section is devoted to any OTHER important corrections that Acharonim have pointed out in the Gemara, Rashi and Tosfos.

[1] Gemara 27a [line 6]:

The words "d'Kedushas ha'Guf" דקדושת הגוף

should be "Kedushas ha'Guf" קדושת הגוף

[2] Rashi 27a DH Tovas Hana'ah ד"ה טובת הנאה:

"v'Im Hayah Kohen" ואם היה כהן is a new Dibur

[3] Rashi DH Aval Hanei Matanos Bechor ... : ד"ה אבל הני מתנות בכור

The words should be "Aval Hanei Matanos u'Vechor ..." אבל הני מתנות ובכור

[4] Rashi DH Kohen Katan ד"ה כהן קטן:


(the correction of the RASHASH, removing the words "Lishna Acharina" לשנא אחרינא, does not appear to be correct)

If a person (or utensil) became Tamei through touching a Mes, or an object that was Tamei with Tum'as Mes, or being in the same room as a Mes or something that is Metamei b'Ohel, he must wait seven days to become Tahor. On the third and seventh days he must have spring water mixed with the ashes of the Parah Adumah (Mei Chatas, see Background to Bechoros 25:11) sprinkled on him. A person who is Tahor dips three Ezov branches that have been bound together into the mixture, and sprinkles them on the person who is Tamei. On the seventh day, he immerses in a Mikvah after the mixture is sprinkled on him in order to complete his Taharah. (Bamidbar 19:17-19)
