Why does Pasuk insert a 'Vav' in "v'Im Min ha'Tzon"?


Rashi: To equates the laws of a Seh and those of an ox. 1


See Sifsei Chachamim.


Then why is there a break (signified by the 'Samech') between the two Parshiyos?


Rashi: Refer to 1:1:4:1.


What do we learn from the three times "Min" - "Min ha'Tzon", "Min ha'Kevasim" and "Min ha'Izim"?


Rashi: They come to disqualify an animal that is old, sick or sweaty from the realm of Korbanos.


Rashi writes that the Vov equates the laws of a Seh and those of an ox. What do we learn from this?


Moshav Zekenim: Just like Olas Seh is slaughtered in the north, also an ox. 1


Moshav Zekenim: Zevachim 32b learns from "v'Shachat Es Ben ha'Bakar Lifnei Hashem" that the ox must be in front of Hashem (in the Azarah), but the Shochet need not be. We learn that the same applies to a Seh.


Moshav Zekenim: This is like the opinion that due to Vov Mosif, we can learn the previous Parshah from the latter. However, one opinion (Zevachim 48a) says that we learn only the latter from the previous!


Since it says "Min ha'Tzon", why do we need "Min ha'Kevasim u''Min ha'Izim"?


Moshav Zekenim: Tzon alludes to Yisrael - "v'ATen Tzoni Tzon Mar'isi" (Yechezkel 34:17). Kevasim alludes to Tzadikim, who have no Yetzer ha'Ra, Izim alludes to brazen people All of them are equal after they do full Teshuvah - "Shalom Shalom la'Rachok vela'Karov" (Yeshayah 57:19). Shalom is given first to the Rasha, who was far, for absolute Tzadikim cannot stand where Baalei Teshuvah stand.


Why did the Torah not mention flaying a Seh Olah?


Riva (as cited in Tosfos ha'Shalem 2): : The Torah taught so about an ox. The same applies to all Olos. It needed to write dissection, for its limbs are smaller than an ox', and I would have that that it is not needed.
