*********************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] Mishnah 35a [line 28]:

Should be corrected as suggested by Shitah Mekubetzes #8

[2] Rashi 35a DH d'Iy Ashma'inan " :

The words "l'Lamed l'Hatil Mum"

should be "Lilmod l'Hatil Mum"

[3] Gemara 35b [line 32]:

"v'Lo Chaishinan"

These words apparently belong on the next line, after the words "Ka Mashma Lan" . The Gemara should read "Ka Mashmah Lan d'Lo Chaishinan"

Should be corrected as suggested by Shitah Mekubetzes #12
