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.

דף טז,א גמרא

a bed ??? --- these are the words of Rabbi Eliezer. But the sages say: ??? Abraham ??? Abraham What then does it mean when it says ??? Thus said Rabbi ??? he said Rabbi long and two ??? short and two ??? for what ??? upon them ??? Back to the main body of the text: he said R' Ami son of ??? vessels is invalid What then does it mean when it says ??? vessels Abayye said: ??? that do not at them." three on three that is not ??? No. ??? and not ??? This teaching is consistent with the position of Rabbi Ami son of ??? of ??? and of ??? despite the fact ??? yes. ??? of them ??? that is large ??? of it a small one yes. ??? of it R' Eliezer says: Even She ??? And there is no meaning to the word ??? Rav Huna said They did not teach such a ruling except that do not in that place ??? seven but: there are in that place ??? seven Behold! this a sukkah Another teaching is like this: ??? to do to him a sukkah Behold! this a sukkah ??? We have learnt in a Mishna: It is not a sukkah except Is this not Learn from this Watch out for leading vav And it is like Rav ??? Learn from this that it is possible ??? for him ??? We have learnt in a Mishna: ??? to do to him a sukkah It is not a sukkah and this was taught! Behold! This is a sukkah Rav Huna said There is no difficulty. here, ??? in that place ??? seven here, ??? in that place ??? seven

דף טז,א משנה

??? walls upwards to the bottom if that is high from the land three handbreadths is invalid downwards is more if that is high ten handbreadths is valid Rabbi Yosei says: in the same way ??? is more ten handbreadths thus in the same way upwards to the bottom ten handbreadths

דף טז,א גמרא

about what do they disagree? one master reasons that a partition that is hanging is permitted and one master reasons that a partition that is hanging is not permitted It was taught there: a pit that is between two courtyards They do not ??? from it on Shabbat But rather, if so, One who makes in it a partition ten handbreadths whether upwards whether downwards among in the midst ??? Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel he says

דף טז,ב גמרא

The academy of Shammai say: upwards but the academy of Hillel say: downwards R' Yehudah said she will not be a partition that is large from the wall ??? Rabbah bar bar Channah said Rabbi Yochanan said: R' Yehudah following the position of Rabbi Yosei he said for he said: a partition that is hanging is permitted and not She R' Yehudah did not derive it like R' Yosi and R' Yosi did not derive it like R' Yehudah R' Yehudah did not derive it like R' Yosi Up to this point, he does not come to say i.e., what he really means is not: R' Yehudah There, But rather, In the eruvs that combine courtyards we are dealing with a law established by the Rabbis But Here in this case, a sukkah is a law established by the Torah It does not. and did not Rabbi Yosei reasoned in her like R' Yehudah Up to this point, It does not. he comes to say i.e., what he really means is: R' Yosi Here in this case, But rather, in the command of sukkah which is a "Thou Shalt" commandment But Sabbath which is a prohibition the violation of which is punishable by stoning No. and if you say It once happened that it was made in Tzippori by the mouth of whom was it made? Not by the mouth of Rabbi Yosei But rather, by the mouth of Rabbi Yishmael the son of Rabbi Yosi And what does it mean when it says It once happened and so when he came Rav Dimi he said One time the forgot and they did not bring a Torah scroll from the eve of Sabbath to the next day ??? atop ??? and they brought a Torah scroll and they read in it ??? You might have thought ??? on Shabbat But rather, they found ??? atop ??? and they brought a Torah scroll and they read for it Rav Chisdah said he said ??? four and a smidge lit: a whatever is permitted in the command of sukkah due to a wall in what way does does he act? He hangs for him in the midst less than three from the bottom edge and less than three from the upper edge and all that are less than three are equivalent to "lavud" an implicitly closed gap This is obvious! What would you have said? in a case of one then "lavud" is the ruling that we say but in a case of two "lavud" we do not say Come and learn from this. They challenged him from this teaching: ??? seven and a smidge lit: a whatever is permitted in a sukkah on account of the wall For this teaching deals with the case in a sukkah that is large And what does it mean when it says Come and hear from this ??? walls upwards to the bottom like Rabbi Yosi he said Rabbi Ami ??? four and a smidge lit: a whatever is permitted in a sukkah because the wall ??? for him in less than three handbreadths immediately adjacent lit: leaning to the wall-partition and all that are less than three immediately adjacent lit: leaning to the wall-partition -- like "lavud" it is equivalent And what can we come and learn from this? Thus can we come and learn from this. the measure ??? a sukkah a small one seven
