האם ר’ יוסי באמת סובר שטומאה טמונה אינה בוקעת ועולה? לפי ר’ יוחנן המשנה סוברת כר’ יוסי שסובר שנגיעה=מאהיל. מי התנא שחולק עליו? האם ביצת שרץ מטמא? האם עכבר (אחד משמונה שרצים) כולל גם עכבר שחציו בשר וחציו אדמה? האם ואיך הם מטמאים?

Does Rabbi Yossi really hold that impurity in an enclosed area without the space of a square handsbreadth above it, will not pass on impurities to one touching the space above it? According to Rabbi Yochanan, the mishna is in accordance with Rabbi Yossi holds that “touching” the space above an item that is impure (dead human) is called “touching” (meaning laws of covering is the same as laws of touching). Which tanna disagrees with him? Is a dead egg of a creeping animal impure? Does a mouse that is partially flesh and partially dirt (according to most, created by spontaneous generation) pass on impurities? If so, under what conditions?
