What do we learn from the Torah's juxtaposition of "v'Kamatz" to "ha'Kohanim (in Pasuk 1)?

1.

Rashi (from Menachos 18b): This teaches us that from the Kemitzah and onwards is incumbent upon the Kohanim. 1


1

Refer to 2:2;151:1,2.

2)

What are the implications of "mi'Sham"?

1.

Rashi: It implies that the Kohen takes the Kometz where the owner stands, i.e. it is Kosher anywhere in the Azarah, even in the 11 Amos where Yisraelim normally go.

3)

What is meant by "Melo Kumtzo"?

1.

Rashi and Rashbam: "Melo Kumtzo 1 " comprises exactly what fits into the Kohen's palm - inside the three middle fingers (of his right hand, when they are closed over his palm), no less and no more. 2


1

Riva: Rashi said that Kumtzo is a Hebrew word, for in Arameic, it is a cavity. Moshav Zekenim citing the Rosh - in Arameic, it is a Kli.

2

As the Torah indicates in Tzav, 6,8. Any flour that protrudes, the Kohen must remove, using his thumb and little finger (Rashi).

4)

What does is the meaning of "al Kol Levonasah"?

1.

Rashi: This means that the Kometz must be full excluding the Levonah.

5)

What can we learn from "Melo Kumtzo" mi'Saltah u'mi'Shamnah"?

1.

Rashi: This implies that the Kometz may contain only the flour and the oil, and that if it contains even one grain of salt or Levonah, it is Pasul.

6)

Why does the Torah juxtapose "Levnosah" to "v'Hiktir"?

1.

Rashi: To teach us that the Levonah too, is burned on the Mizbe'ach.

7)

Why does the Torah refer to the Kemitzah as "Azkarasah"?

1.

Rashi: Because it is via the Kometz that the owner is remembered for the good and is favored by Hashem.

8)

Rashi writes that from Kemitzah and onwards is incumbent upon the Kohanim. Hagashah and Tenufah are before Kemitzah, and they require Kehunah!

1.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim citing the Rosh; Chazal refer only to the Avodos mentioned in the current Pesukim (pouring the oil, placing the Levonah, bringing it to the Kohen and performing the Kemitzah), and Hagashah is not mentioned here.

2.

Moshav Zekenim: Hagashah and Tenufah are not essential for Kaparah. (The rule applies only to what is Me'akev Kaparah.)
