1)[line 12]יעשו אותוYA'ASU OSO- The Beraisa is referring to the words "Ya'asu Oso" which follow the words "Chukas ha'Pesach," and not to the words "Ya'asu Oso" which appear in the previous verse, before "Al Matzos u'Merorim." The first time the words "Ya'asu Oso" appear is not extraneous, as Rashi explains (at the end of DH she'Ein Shochtin).

2)[line 17]כפרט וכלל ונעשה כלל מוסיף על הפרטPRAT U'CHLAL, V'NA'ASEH KLAL MOSIF AL HA'FRAT

(a)In the Introduction to the Sifra (the Halachic Midrash to Vayikra), Rebbi Yishmael lists the thirteen methodologies employed by Chazal when determining Halachah from the verses of the Torah. One of them is Prat u'Chlal Na'aseh Klal Musaf Al ha'Frat.

(b)This rule states that when the Torah records that a certain Halachah applies only in a specific case or instance, and then follows that specific example with a restatement of that same Halachah generally (i.e. unlimited to any specific case), then the latter expression is accepted as primary, and the Halachah is applicable in all cases.

See Background to Pesachim 84:14.


5)[line 6]"השיר יהיה לכם כליל התקדש חג ושמחת לבב כהולך בחליל לבוא בהר ה' אל צור ישראל""HA'SHIR YIHEYEH LACHEM K'LEIL HISKADESH CHAG; V'SIMCHAS LEVAV KA'HOLECH B'CHALIL LAVO V'HAR HASH-M EL TZUR YISRAEL"- "The song shall be for you like the night in which the holiday is sanctified; and gladness of heart shall be as one who goes with a flute to come into the mountain of HaSh-m, to the Rock of Yisrael" (Yeshayah 30:29).


"Linah" is the term used when any parts of the Korbanos were not placed on the Mizbe'ach until the following morning (Linah means to sleep overnight - see RASHI to Bereishis 24:23). They become disqualified and may never be placed on the Mizbe'ach.

7)[line 32]ביאת מקדשBI'AS MIKDASH

(a)There are three Machanos (areas of designated holiness) within the city of Yerushalayim, which correspond to the three Machanos (encampments) in the Midbar.

(b)The entire area within the walls of Yerushalayim - excluding Har ha'Bayis (the Temple Mount) - is termed the Machaneh Yisrael. This area corresponds to the encampment of the twelve tribes in the Midbar. The Machaneh Yisrael is off-limits to Metzora'im, who are may not enter any walled city in Eretz Yisrael.

(c)The area between the Azarah and the wall surrounding Har ha'Bayis, including the Ezras Nashim, is termed the Machaneh Leviyah. This corresponds to the area in the Midbar around the Mishkan, where the Leviyim camped. This area has a higher level of Kedushah; not only may Metzora'im not enter, but neither may Zavin, Zavos, Nidos or Yoldos.

(d)The entire area contained within the Azarah is termed the Machaneh Shechinah. This includes the Ezras Yisrael, the Ezras Kohanim (containing the Beis ha'Mikdash, the Mizbe'ach, and various Lishkos [chambers]), and the area under the gate to the Azarah known as Sha'ar Nikanor - but not the Ezras Nashim. This area corresponds to the part of the Mishkan in the Midbar that was within the Kela'im (curtains). This area has an even higher level of Kedushah; even a Temei Mes or Temei Sheretz may not enter the Machaneh Shechinah.

8)[line 46]היכלHEICHAL- the Sanctuary. Contained within this area are the Menorah, the Shulchan upon which the Lechem ha'Panim are stacked, and the Mizbe'ach ha'Ketores.

9)[last line]אימורי פסחEIMUREI PESACH- the parts of the Korban Pesach offered on the Mizbe'ach. These are: 1. the layer of fat covering the stomachs; 2. all other fat attached to the stomachs; 3. the two kidneys; 4. the fat upon the kidneys; 5. the Yoseres, which is either the diaphragm (RASHI, RADAK) or a lobe of the liver (RAV HAI GA'ON) (Vayikra 3:3-4); 6. if a sheep was offered as the Korban Pesach, the Alyah (fatty tail).
