By making the neder to bring a mincha with barley when he knows it is not possible, this person is making a neder in vain – a neder shov. From INSIGHTS INTO THE DAILY DAF Nedarim 15 I see that The RAN (end of Nedarim 14b) writes that there is no Isur of "Neder Shav," a Neder made in vain, as there is an Isur of Shevu'as Shav, a Shevu'ah made in ...

The footnotes for the Eliyahu Touger translation( at the chabad.org site), on Hilkhot Temidin u-Musafin 7:7, for "[i]f it was reaped during the day, it is acceptable"(fn 18), say: Menachot 72a states that the Sages that maintain that it is acceptable to harvest the barley for the offering during the day do not accept the view that this barley may be ...

The word שחת means produce of wheat or barley cut from stalks of grain which have not yet grown fully - see Rashi in Avodah Zora 20b. However, at the top of Daf 71a it says that there are several stages of growth of the grain: 1) חשרשה (when the planted grain takes root). 2) אגם (when the grain has grown enough so that the top of the stalk can be bent down ...

I think you're mixing up which paragraph is the interrupting material. The gemara prior to your quote had been discussing the opinion of Rebbe. In that discussion it mentioned the rule of 'curtailed threads' as a possible understanding of Rebbe's understanding of the Mishna. It then returns to its primary topic: Rebbe's opinion. When it's done, it reanalyzes ...

The end of the Tosfos implies that there are 3 opinions. Keeping it simple: Rabbi Elazar ben Yaakov- waving during the viduy Rabbi Yehuda- waving after the viduy 3rd tanna (aka rabbanan)- no waving If the purpose of the mishna in Menachos 61a was to describe the bikurim process, then the reference to Rabbi Elazar would indicate a waving in line with R"E ...

I didn't spend too much time on this, but off the cuff: Without the reasoning of "nesachim is fruit juice and cannot come to chimutz", I could have said the R"Y haGelili and R"A are adding only one item- whichever is the lesser chidush to include. The statement of reasoning shows that the machlokes is not over which one is the simplest to include, but ...

Even though as Mishnah 5 says the second of the first is better quality than the first of the third, nevertheless, the reason why only the first of each batch is suitable for the menorah is because only oil which seeps out by itself from crushed olives is suitable (as it says at the end of Mishnah 5) - this is the first of each batch, and not that which runs ...

Menachos is considered one of the hardest masechtos and in my opinion the hardest. Artscroll uses both editions continuously. Tosfos seems to have had only the MS edition which would mean it is more authentic. There aren't any other rishonim (except perhaps the rashbo) but there is a wealth of achronim at least fifty on the otsar hachochma. I would suggest ...
