1. Ameimar gives another explanation for the argument in the "deer controversy" (see Daf 39, #5).
2. Rava permitted the Jews to partake of turnips brought by Nochrim on Yom Tov for other Nochrim (which they then gave to the Jews).
3. However, when Rava saw that the Nochrim were bringing a lot of turnips, he forbade the Jews from partaking of them.
4. There is a dispute about whether Shabbos is given its own blessing in the Musaf Shemoneh Esreh of Rosh Hashanah.
5. There is a dispute about whether the blessing of Shehecheyanu is recited on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
A BIT MORE
1. Ameimar explains that the deer was not trapped, but rather brought from outside the Techum. Rav Nachman: A deer that is brought by Nochrim from outside the Techum to be given to a certain Jew is permitted to a different Jew. Rav Sheshes: Since the deer was brought for the Reish Galusa, it essentially was brought for any sage present at his meal. Therefore, Rav Sheshes did not eat from it, since it was not considered brought for just one specific Jew, but for everyone.
2. Since the turnips clearly were not picked that day and were not attached to the ground when Yom Tov entered, they were not prohibited. Moreover, since they were brought for Nochrim, they were not forbidden for Jews even though they were brought from outside of the Techum.
3. This is because the quantity of turnips which the Nochrim had started to bring from outside the Techum was clearly with the Jews in mind. Therefore, it was forbidden to benefit from them on Yom Tov.
4. Beis Shamai: Shabbos is given its own blessing and, therefore, the Shemoneh Esreh contains a total of ten blessings. Beis Hillel: Shabbos is not given its own blessing and, therefore, the Shemoneh Esreh contains nine blessings.
5. Rav and Shmuel say that the blessing of Shehecheyanu is recited only on the three festivals, but not on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The Gemara, however, concludes that it is recited on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
