Gemara Avoda Zara Perek ב

Gemara Avoda Zara Perek ב

Join Rabbi Yitzhak Zuriel and learn the second 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.

Gemara Avoda Zara Perek ב: Lesson
Class description

Welcome to new students, and welcome back to returning students!

I am excited to be learning gemara with you! You may have noticed (and this is for the first time in WebYeshiva history) that my gemara shiur and Rabbi Brovender’s are not learning the same masechet. This means that in theory a student can study in both classes without experiencing overlapping material. It is part of our effort to adapt to the needs of the online learning community and the demand for variety.

In this course we will be continuing to study Masechet Avodah Zarah as we did in the previous semester, but we are moving forward to chapter 2, where the gemara discusses certain prohibitions of food produced by עובדי עבודה זרה. This material is actually part of the large body of halacha that has to do with kashrut, what we generally call “issur ve-heter”.

We will begin in this shiur with mishnayot of Perek ב. After that we will begin studying the gemara and rishonim from the mishna on Daf 29b.

As usual, we will emphasize a methodological approach to understanding the text of the gemara itself, and look for insights into the approaches of the rishonim printed on the page, namely Rashi and Tosafot.

Looking forward to studying with you!
Yitzhak Zuriel

In this shiur, we will begin the mishnayot (starting with mishna 3) that discuss prohibited foods, mostly related to the severe prohibition of wine that was owned or touched by  גוים.

In the previous shiur, we learned the 3rd and 4th mishnayot of chapter 2 of Avodah Zarah. These mishnayot introduced for us the topic of the prohibitions of foods whose level of prohibition is issur hanaah, i.e. it is forbidden to derive any benefit from them.

In this shiur, we will learn משנה ה, the 5th mishna in the chapter, and then continue on to complete over the next shiurim the mishnayot of chapter 2, and in parallel start studying on the gemara page Avodah Zarah 29b , where we will study the comments of Rashi on mishnayot 3-5 (the mishnayot appear together as one long mishna on this page) before commencing the sugya of forbidden wine.

In the previous shiur, we learned the long mishna containing the story of the dialog between R.Yishmael and R.Yehoshua about the prohibition on eating cheese produced by non-Jews. With this we have learned the mishnayot that will be the starting point for the gemara that we will be learning, on Avodah Zarah 29b .

In this shiur, we will be studying the comments of Rashi on the last few mishnayot that we learned, as they appear on Daf 29b. Then we will start the sugya in the gemara about non-Jewish wine.

In the previous shiur, we learned one additional mishna of chapter 2 and then started Rashi’s comments on the set of previous mishnayot of the chapter that appear together on Daf 29b in the gemara.

In this shiur, we will finish reading and discussing Rashi’s comments on the mishnayot and then begin the gemara on the subject of the severe prohibition of wine of non-Jews, all of this found on Avodah Zarah 29b .
