We said on 14 that anything thing which pasul's terumah w/the exception of a Tevul Yom, makes liquid a rishon. So how are we interpreting Chaggai's question to the kohanim and him asking about wether kodashim are tamai as a shelishi, rivi'i or chamishi when 2 of the items he mentioned were wine and oil, took liquids then when made m'tamai are a rishon D'rabbonon!

As always, any help is much appreciated, thank you.

Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel

The Kollel replies:

It is possible that Chagai was asking them the Halachah mid'Oraisa, not mid'Rabanan (see Mareh ha'Panim on Yerushalmi Sotah 5:2).

Alternatively, it is possible that the Gezeirah regarding anything which makes Terumah Pasul makes a liquid a Rishon was not yet made.

All the best,

Yaakov Montrose
