PREVIEW OF THE DAFCAST WEBSITE FOR CYCLE 13

Please do not forward this link around yet! This is still in development and will be "released", God willing, on August 1, in time for the thirteenth cycle of Daf Yomi.

Disclaimers

This is an early draft. I haven't proofread; there are plenty of typos and probably some more significant errors as well.
Most pages on this site are currently auto-translated. The autotranslations are intended as a starting point for my manual translations. At best, they are awkward stringing-togethers of words and phrases in the corpus database that can benefit from cleaning up. At worst, they are picking the wrong homograph. Auto-translations are indicated by italics.
I am not a rabbi or an expert. These are my translations, and in some cases I am certainly misunderstanding things.
The Talmud is a document of its time. While the Talmud is a foundational document of Judaism, it must be read in its historical context. There are passages that are xenophobic, sexist, and irreconcilable with modern science. Not everything in these pages represents contemporary Judaism.

Copyright

This translation is protected by copyright. I'm putting a lot of effort into this project. Please respect that by only copying with my permission.
I intend to provide free licenses for most uses. I plan to use a Creative Commons CC-NC-BY-SA license, which will allow you to re-use my translations as long as you don't charge money for them (NC), as long as you give me credit (BY), and as long as you make your derived work available under the same terms (SA). But I'm not ready to do that yet because this is still a very rough work-in-progress.
In the meantime, if you want to re-use this, please contact me. I am willing to discuss re-use on an ad hoc basis. Perhaps the one page you want to use is actually ready for re-use. Ask. I'll probably work out a way to say "yes."

Credits

I need to clean up this section. But for now, I'll note that I've made use of the Hebrew/Aramaic text of the Bavli at Mechon Mamre; Jastrow's dictionary; "The Practical Talmud Dictionary" by Yitzchak Frank. I've also used the big three translations of the Talmud --- Soncino (English), Artscroll (English), and Steinsaltz (Hebrew) --- and the Kehati (English) edition of the Mishna, to help me understand passages before translating them.

I would say it is of acceptable worth. and if we had heard ??? then I might incorrectly say: originally ??? and now ??? but: ??? originally ??? and now ??? I would say it is of acceptable worth. Watch out for leading vav And it was necessary to have both statements Hey, isn't it the case that of Rav Is this not in a clarifying explanation it was said: except from a derivation it was said: of Rav he ate dates ??? He said to him: Rabbi Chiyya son of ??? opposite him on Yom Tov is forbidden he accepted it from him. or No. he accepted it from him. Come and hear: when Rav came ??? he ate dates ??? Is this not ??? and not ??? No. ??? Because and he will see ??? He said to him R' Shmuel son of son of ??? According to Rav Yosef to Rabbi Yehudah for he said: ??? And there is no meaning to the word ??? vessels immediately ??? in them? ??? it was. for him shards of vessels And so ??? Watch out for leading vav And it is like Rav gifts for he said: Rav Matanah: Rav said pieces of wood ??? from ??? on Yom Tov ??? pieces of wood ??? av Hamnunah he said Here in this case, in less from three on three is what we're dealing with (lit. what we're immersed in) ??? here, And he is consistent R' Eliezer with his reasoning and Rabbi Akiva with his reasoning For it was taught in a baraita less than three on three ??? in it the bathhouse ??? in it ??? in it ??? between from ??? or whether that do not from ??? tamei these are the words of Rabbi Eliezer and Rabbi Yehoshua says: between from ??? or whether that did not have from ??? tahor Rabbi Akiva says: from ??? tamei or in the case that one is not from ??? tahor Ulla said (and there are those who say Rabbah son of son of ??? that R' Yochanan said Everyone acknowledges ??? in the dunghill the words of all are tahor

Rabbi Akiva ??? of R' Yehoshua From where can you derive Rabba said: When the baraita teaches a wick a cloth What is the purpose of teaching: a wick a cloth Let the Tanna teach: wick of ???

No. ??? a person ??? of An egg ??? oil ??? by the mouth of the lamp on account of that it should be ??? and even She of pottery And Rabbi Yehudah permits but: if ??? is permitted. because it was implements of one No. Watch out for leading vav "And he filled a person ??? of oil ??? beside the lamp He shall give" the tip of the wick ??? on account of that it should be ??? And Rabbi Yehudah permits

דף כט,ב גמרא

And it was necessary to have both statements For if it was we had heard ??? of An egg In this case, ??? rabbis ??? that is not ??? will come ??? but: of pottery ??? I would say ??? for him to Rabbi Yehudah and if we had heard of pottery In this case, he comes to say i.e., what he really means is: Rabbi Yehudah but: ??? I would say he would acknowledge the correct position of the sages, and if we had heard ??? both ??? he comes to say i.e., what he really means is: Rabbi Yehudah It is because of this: that is not ??? but: ??? I would say he would acknowledge the correct position of the sages, and if we had heard ??? rabbis but: ??? both I would say ??? to Rabbi Yehudah ??? and if ??? from the beginning is permitted. ??? a Tanna taught: if ??? with lime and with clay is permitted. ??? "Who forms We have learnt in a Mishna: What then does it mean when it says "Who forms similar to ??? It was taught: R' Yehudah said: One time ??? the house of ??? and they brought to us ??? of An egg ??? oil ??? by the mouth of the lamp and it was the case that in that place Rabbi Tarfon and elders And they did not say to us a thing They said to him: From here is there really proof? that I the house of ??? there are. Avin: ??? Isaac son of ??? He said to him If it was ??? to you ??? for him ??? according to R' Yehudah he departs of him ??? because ??? of the world ??? Rabbah He said to him like who like Rabbi Shimon I will say for he said: Rabbi Shimon ??? where it is not possible ??? Watch out for leading vav And who said it? and disagrees because of Ulla for he said: ??? It is a disagreement ??? but: ??? is permitted. Rav Yosef challenged this by citing Rabbi Shimon says: a person may drag a bed a cup or a bench but only if it is not his intention to do a furrow The tanna teaches: ??? And we have learned children it is a problem ??? with his reasoning and R' ??? Rabbah ??? with his reasoning ??? with his reasoning a bed is equivalent ??? and R' ??? Rabbah ??? a cup is equivalent where he is reclining He challenged this "He" meaning... Rabbah ??? we sell ??? but only if it is not his intention ??? because of the sun ??? because of the rains ??? Hey, isn't it the case that Here in this case, where it is possible ??? and so when children he is equivalent. And so No. ??? Sarai Rabbi Shimon initially ??? Rabbah -- This definitively refutes it!

one who extinguishes the lamp because of the fact that he was afraid because of gentiles and because of robbers because of an evil spirit because of an ill person that he may sleep is exempt but if he did it to spare the lamp to spare the oil to spare the wick he is liable Rabbi Yosei exempts in all of them except for the wick because of the fact that he makes charcoal
