Marcello Trebitsch asked:

Dear rabbi,

When the gemarah gives different answers as to why we need less then 20 amos, why do we not say simply that since it is like a mavoi and a mavoi can only be 20 amos here too

Best Regards,

Marcello Trebitsch

The Kollel replies:

The entire concept of a Korah in a Mavoy, and certainly its being less than twenty Amos, is mid'Rabanan. We definitely cannot find the source of a Halachah mid'Oraisa from a Halachah mid'Rabanan.

All the best,

Yaakov Montrose
