& Revach l'Neshamah - http://www.revach.net
1. One who inherits a Korban performs Semichah. If he makes a Temurah from the Korban, the Temurah becomes sanctified, according to the Tana of the Mishnah. Rebbi Yehudah disagrees.
2. One may not perform Semichah on the Korban of his friend. No Semichah is done on the Korban of a Nochri.
3. If a woman makes a Temurah, it has sanctity.
4. Anyone may perform Semichah, with the exception of a deaf-mute, a blind person, an insane person, a Katan, a Nochri, a servant, a Shali'ach, and a woman.
5. Semichah is done with both hands on the head of the animal. The Shechitah is done in the same place as the Semichah.
6. If one failed to do Semichah or Tenufah, the Korban is valid.
7. The Semichah must be done on the head and not on the neck, back, chest, or the sides of the head of the animal.
A BIT MORE
1. According to Rebbi Yehudah, an heir does not perform Semichah. If he makes a Temurah from the Korban, it does not have sanctity.
2. If a Korban is owned by more than one person, all of them must perform Semichah.
3. Although the entire Parshah of Temurah is taught in the masculine form, a Ribuy in the verse includes women.
4. A deaf-mute, blind person, and insane person do not have the requisite De'ah for Semichah. The Torah excludes the others from Semichah as well.
5. The Shechitah must be done immediately after the Semichah. Therefore, the Shechitah is done in the same place as the Semichah.
6. However, it is not a Mitzvah Min ha'Muvchar.
7. There must be nothing between the hands of the person doing the Semichah and the head of the animal.
