The special meal offering brought by the high priest is discussed in detail. It is clear from the Torah how much flour was used but it is not clear how much oil. A braita discusses various possibilities. If the high priest dies and there is no replacement right away, where is the money taken from to bring the offering – the heirs or the community funds?
What is the status of the two lambs (peace offerings brought with the 2 loaves of bread on Shavuot) that are sacrificed with the wrong intent – are they compared to a sin offering as they are obligatory or to a regular peace offering as they are peace offerings? Daily offerings and musaf offerings – failure to sacrifice one doesn’t prevent the sacrifice of the other. The gemara discusses what exactly the situation is.
When do the loaves become sanctified? Different opinions are brought as well as different ways to understand one of the opinions.
What is the unique connection between the 2 lambs brought together with the two breads on Shavuot? Why are they more inherently connected than the rest of the animals brought with the two breads?
A story is told about the reward a man received for keeping the mitzva of tzitzit as it prevented him from sleeping with a prostitute. The gemara gets back to issues relating to meal offerings and sacrifices and discusses that if certain items are lacking, it doesn’t prevent the fulfillment of other items. The issue is also raised with regarding to tefillin (on the arm and on the head).
How many strings? How far from the edge of the garment? How long do the strands need to hang down? Does one make a bracha on stringing the tzitzit? Can a non Jew make tzitzit? Can a woman? What part of the process needs to be done for the sake of tzitzit?
If one has a long garment and folds it, does one need to put strings on the folded part? Is the obligation of tzitzit that all four cornered garments one owns should have tzitzit or is it an obligation only if one is wearing a four cornered garment, it must have tzitzit? Or does anyone hold (possibly an angel) that it is an obligation on a person to wear a four corenred garment, thus obligating him in tzitzit? Is one allowed to move strings from one pair of tzitzit to another?
Can one wear tzitzit that have shaatnez (wool strings on a linen garment)?
How are the windings in the tzitzit done? Do there need to be strings hanging down? What type of fabrics obligate a garment in tzitzit?
The mishna states that having white without techelet or techelet without white does not disqualify the tzitzit. Alternative explanations are brought in order to explain this mishna even according to Rebbi who holds that both are necessary. Other issues relating to tzitzit are discussed.
