PESACHIM 72 (25 Elul) - Dedicated in memory of Yechiel Avraham Avigdor ben Eliyahu Glaser z'l, by his brother Yisrael and family. May Avigdor's children merit to grow in Torah and Yiras Shamayim, and become sources of pride and Nachas to their father in Gan Eden.


1. The Mishnah discusses a case of Milah where the wrong baby was circumcised.
2. There is a dispute in the Mishnah about a similar mix-up regarding circumcision.
3. Rebbi Yosi: If a person mistakenly takes his Lulav to the synagogue on the first day of Sukos that falls on Shabbos, he is exempt.
4. There is a dispute about whether the service performed by a Kohen who is the son of a divorcee is valid b'Di'eved.
5. Rebbi Tarfon rules that the act of eating Terumah is called an "Avodah."


1. A person mistakenly circumcised on Shabbos a baby that was supposed to be circumcised after Shabbos. He is liable for accidental transgression of Shabbos, since he was not permitted to circumcise this baby on Shabbos.
2. The dispute regards a baby who was supposed to be circumcised on Erev Shabbos but was circumcised on Shabbos. Rebbi Eliezer: The Mohel is Chayav to bring a Chatas. Rebbi Yehoshua: He is exempt; one who desecrates Shabbos by performing a Mitzvah at the wrong time is not liable.
3. This is because he thought he was doing a Mitzvah when he carried it into the public domain.
4. Tana Kama: Such service is invalid, because the Kohen is a Chalal. Rebbi Yehoshua: The service is valid b'Di'eved, because the verse states, "Hashem should bless Cheilo and the work of his hands he should want"; "Cheilo" refers to a Chalal, according to Rebbi Yehoshua.
5. Accordingly, when Raban Gamliel asked Rebbi Tarfon where he was the other day, he answered that he was performing Avodah (even though the Beis ha'Mikdash was no longer standing).
