Quick synopsis of lessons from yesterday’s class with pics!
Rav says doorway won’t solve gap more than 10 cubits. Rav Yochanan agrees – proof from story of farmer in Beis Charvasan who spread a vine around 4 poles to create a separate space. Discussed “kilayim (crossbreeding)” the biblical injunction against planting grapes and wheat together.
Doorway rules: a)crossbeam over sideposts b) strong enough to support door c) hinge/socket
Question – why mention discussion with Rabbi Ashi students?
Does crossbeam have to touch sideposts? Story with Rav Sheishes sending assistant to knock down offending crossbeams. Lesson he learned about doorways from laws of mezuzah.
