Ask A

Mishnah 1

(a) Among the things that have no Shi'ur, our Mishnah lists Pe'ah. How do we reconcile this with the Mishnah later, which gives the Shi'ur of Pe'ah as at least one sixtieth?
(b) Besides Pe'ah, which other three items does the Tana include in the list?
(c) If the Mitzvah of 'Ra'ayon' comprises appearing on Yom-Tov in the Beis-Hamikdash, what are two possible explanations of the Halachah that 'Ra'ayon has no Shi'ur'?
(d) Here too, the Rabbanan gave a Shi'ur. If the Shi'ur for the Olas Re'iyah is a silver Ma'ah, what is the Shi'ur for the Shalmei Chagigah?

(a) Why must Gemilus-Chasadim refer to performing a personal kindness with someone who needs it? What Shi'ur do the Rabbanan prescribe for a Gemilus Chesed performed with one's money (see Chidushei Maharich)?
(b) What is one therefore advised to do?
(c) From where do we know that Talmud-Torah has no Shi'ur?
(d) What does the Tana say about ...

Mishnah 2

(a) What does the Tana mean when he says (in connection with Pe'ah) ...
1. ... 'ha'Kol Le'fi Rov ha'Sadeh'?
2. ... 'ha'Kol Le'fi Rov ha'Aniyim'?
(b) The third thing listed by the Mishnah is 'Anavah'. What does he mean, assuming the text to be ...
1. ... 'Anavah' with a 'Vav'?
2. ... 'Aniyah' (like the Rambam's version)?
3. ... 'Anavah' with a 'Veis'?
click for answer

Mishnah 3

(a) Ideally speaking, from where should one leave Pe'ah?
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Kedoshim "Lo Sechaleh Pe'as Sadcha Li'Ketzor" (regarding the location of the Pe'ah)?
(c) Why then, does Rebbi Shimon obligate someone who leaves Pe'ah at the beginning of the field or in the middle, to leave Pe'ah at the end?
(d) According to the Rambam, the Shi'ur that he leaves at the end of his field does not include what he left already (see Tosfos Yom-Tov). What can we extrapolate from the Yerushalmi?
click for answer

(a) Rebbi Yehudah disagrees. According to him, it will suffice to subsequently leave even one stalk at the end of his field. What does he say in a case where the owner simply left the full Shi'ur Pe'ah in the middle of his field?
(b) What is the difference whether what he leaves is Hefker or Pe'ah?

click for answer

Mishnah 6

(a) If someone picked the entire crop and forgot to leave Pe'ah, what is he obligated to do?
(b) The Tana discusses the Din of Ma'aser from these crops (in the current case). At which stage does one become Chayav to separate Ma'aser?

2. ... obligated to separate Ma'aser before giving Pe'ah?

(b) Up to which stage may one feed one's animals without separating Ma'aser?
(c) Seeing as even the owner is permitted to eat from the fruit before Miru'ach, why does the Tana see fit to mention the Heter of feeding one's animals?

(c) Finally, the Mishnah obligates someone who declares his field Hekdesh and then redeems it, to separate Ma'asros. In which case would he be Patur? Why is that?
