BEITZAH 40 (Year 5782) - Dedicated l'Iluy Nishmas Reb Naftali ben Reb Menachem Mendel Bodner Z"L, by his wife, Alice Bodner. A man who loved to perform Chesed, Tuli Bodner applied his many talents to help everyone he knew in any way he could. His cheerful greeting is missed by all who knew him. His Yahrzeit is 5 Cheshvan.


1. If a person invited guests from another city for a Yom Tov meal, they may not take home leftovers.
2. There is a dispute about the Techum of fruit that was given to a guard for safekeeping.
3. There is a dispute about what a person means when he tells his friend, "You may place items in my yard."
4. One should give an animal water to drink before slaughtering it.
5. Rebbi Shimon maintains that only items such as figs and grapes put out to dry are Muktzah.


1. This is because the food that he made has his Techum, as opposed to the Techum of his guests who had to make a special Eruv Techumin to come to his house. However, if he had someone acquire their portions on their behalf before Yom Tov, they may take them home.
2. Rav: The fruit has the Techum of the guard. Shmuel: The fruit has the Techum of its owner.
3. Tana Kama: The owner of the yard is agreeing to guard these items, and if they are damaged he is liable to pay the owner. Rebbi: Unless he explicitly says that he is going to guard the items, he is not accepting responsibility for them by merely saying that they may be placed in his yard.
4. This is done to ease the flaying, so that the skin will not stick to its flesh.
5. In other words, Rebbi Shimon understands that figs or grapes that are put out to dry are considered "pushed aside" by their owner from being used on Shabbos, as they inedible during the drying process.
