Gemara Avoda Zara Perek א

Gemara Avoda Zara Perek א

Join Rabbi Yitzhak Zuriel and learn the first chapter in Masechet Avodah Zara. We will cover the discussions of the gemara itself, as well as the comments of Rashi and Tosafot. We will emphasize a methodological approach to studying gemara, aimed at equipping the student with the tools needed to learn gemara on one’s own. This course is an intermediate Talmud course and students should already have some basic skills learning Gemara.

Because of connectivity problems, I started recording this shiur twice. The first recording was aborted at the very beginning. The second recording was made throughout the shiur, but unfortunately there was a malfunction in the recording and there is no audio.  I will try at some point to replace this recording with another one, this time with sound…  My apologies in the meantime.   — Yitzhak Zuriel

In the previous shiur, we finished learning the long Tosafot on the first mishna of the masechet, on Daf 2a, and saw how Tosafot interprets our gemara on Daf 6a in accordance with his understanding of the halacha in the mishna.

In this shiur, we are now going to move on to the last part of the sugya at the bottom of Avodah Zarah 6a , which continues on the top of Daf 6b, which clarifies the boundaries of the case(s) for which applies the reason given by the gemara that the prohibition of  לשאת ולתת is  because of the Torah prohibition לפני עוור לא תתן מכשול.  Time allowing, we will begin a new sugya, which examines what is the status of goods that were in fact exchanged, in violation of the mishna.

In the previous shiur, we finished the sugya about לפני עוור לא תתן מכשול and studied the relevant comments of Rashi and Tosafot.

In this shiur, the last one before our recess for Pesach, we will learn the new sugya that deals with the question of the halachic status of goods transacted in violation of the mishna’s prohibition. It is an interesting dispute between R.Yohanan and R.Shimon ben Lakish. We will focus in the shiur primarily on seeing the gemara itself – Avodah Zarah 6b , and read the rishonim on the page if there is time.
