*********************GIRSA SECTION*********************

We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, the Tzon Kodashim 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] Rashi 6b DH Amar Rebbi Akiva " :

The words "l'Man d'Amar"

should be "l'Mai d'Amar"


1)[line 1]NOSAR

(a)"Linah" is the term used when any parts of the Korbanos were not placed on the Mizbe'ach until the following morning (Linah means to sleep overnight see RASHI to Bereishis 24:23). They become disqualified and may never be placed on the Mizbe'ach. "Nosar," a type of Linah, defines parts of Korbanos that were not eaten during their allotted time, that become disqualified and may never be eaten.

(b)If any meat or blood of a Korban becomes Nosar, it must be burned. With regard to the Korban Pesach, the verse states, "Do not leave any of it (i.e. the Korban Pesach) over until the morning. Anything that is left over until the morning must be burned in fire" (Shemos 12:10). The repetition of the phrase "until the morning" signals that the verse is referring to the mornings of two different days, and can be understood as follows: "Do not leave any of the Korban Pesach over until the morning (which is Yom Tov). If anything is left over, on the following morning (which is Chol ha'Moed), it must be burned."

(c)The Torah warns us four times not to allow the meat of a Korban to remain past the time during which it may be eaten, each of which is counted as an individual Mitzvah. The first three apply to specific Korbanos (Korban Pesach, in Shemos 12:10 and SEFER HA'CHINUCH Mitzvah #8; Korban Pesach Sheni, in Bamidbar 9:12 and Sefer ha'Chinuch Mitzvah #382; the Chagigah that is brought with the Pesach, in Devarim 16:4 and Sefer ha'Chinuch Mitzvah #486). The fourth time this prohibition is written is with regard to the Korban Todah (Vayikra 7:15 and 22:30), which serves as the source for the prohibition of leaving over meat from any Korban after the allotted time (Sefer ha'Chinuch Mitzvah #142). (The Minchas Chinuch 8:5 suggests that the latter Lav applies even to the three Korbanos for which the Isur of Nosar is written explicitly; however the Acharonim reject his suggestion based on the Gemara in Zevachim 36a.)

(d)Rebbi Shimon rules that Zerkas ha'Dam, even if the blood is disqualified because of Linah, removes the prohibition of Me'ilah from the Korban.



The Zerikah of the blood of a Korban on the Mizbe'ach affects the flesh of the Korban once it has become Pasul by being removed from the Beis ha'Mikdash (for example, the Zerikah does not remove from the flesh the prohibition of Me'ilah, or enable it to become Pigul, Nosar, or Tamei).
