PESACHIM 59 - dedicated by Rav Gedalya Weinberger of Brooklyn, N.Y., in memory of his father, Reb Chaim Tzvi ben Reb Shlomo Weinberger, in honor of his Yahrzeit (18 Adar). Reb Chaim Tzvi, who miraculously survived the holocaust, raised his children with a strong dedication to Torah and its study.


1. One must put enough oil in the Menorah (in the Beis ha'Mikdash) so that it will last even for the longest night of the year.
2. The Ketores was the only Korban brought before the Tamid.
3. The Beraisa lists things that are done after the bringing of the afternoon Tamid.
4. The Kohanim may not eat meat from a Korban before its limbs are offered on the Mizbe'ach.
5. A Korban Pesach that is sacrificed with the intent that it should be another Korban, such as a Shelamim, is invalid.


1. This is derived from the verse, ". from night until evening," implying that every candle should be enough to burn through the longest night.
2. It was offered on the inner Mizbe'ach (known as the Mizbe'ach ha'Zahav), which is why the Gemara was correct when it said earlier (Daf 58, #4) that the Tamid is the first item placed on the outer Mizbe'ach (the Mizbe'ach ha'Nechoshes).
3. They are: the afternoon Ketores, the lighting of the Menorah, and the offering of the Korban Pesach on Erev Pesach.
4. This is derived from the positioning of the verse, "And the Kohen will burn the fat on the altar," before the verse, "And the chest will be for Aharon and his sons."
5. If one has this thought during Shechitah, Kabalas ha'Dam, Holachas ha'Dam, or Zerikas ha'Dam, the Korban Pesach is invalidated. (See Zevachim 2a, where the Mishnah states that this applies only when it is slaughtered on Erev Pesach during the proper time for the Shechitah of the Korban Pesach.)
