Megillah 28b (English) ההוא דהוי תני הלכתא סיפרא וסיפרי ותוספתא ושכיב אתו ואמרו ליה לרב נחמן ליספדיה מר אמר היכי נספדיה הי צנא דמלי סיפרי דחסר there was a certain man who used to repeat halachoth, Sifra and Sifre and Tosefta, and when he died they came and said to R. Nahman, Sir, will you deliver a funeral oration for him, and he said, How are ...

The Rashb"o in Chindushai HaHagodos (Mosad Horav Kook) to Brochos 54b states that after a long halachik discussion the Ameroim switched to Agadato to awaken the students.

I think the real answer is that he meant 15b. ויהי בימי שפוט השופטים. דור ששופט את שופטיו. אמר לו טול קיסם מבין עיניך. אומר לו טול קורה מבין עיניך. אמר לו כספך היה לסיגים. אמר לו סבאך מהול במים. And it was in the days of the judges judging. The generation was judging the judges. The judge would say remove a twig from between your eyes, the person would ...

Mosef Rashi is a modern invention from printers who collect Rashi's writing from other Masechtos which would add insight to the sugya at hand. As such they are Rashi's own words (or Rashbam or the like when quoting from certain masechtos) but not any new found work of his. It's the same old Rashi. So if Tosafos have anything to say about, it would usually ...

To flesh out Gershon's answer a bit more: You wouldn't just say "Rashi's comment on page 84a", as that would have you looking all over the page. Instead, each comment of Rashi is prefaced by the Talmudic phrase on which he's commenting. (In some newer editions it's bold or a different font, to help you locate it more easily.) This is known as דברי המתחיל, ...

It's called המתרגם. The reason it's hard to find is because it is not consistently printed in the same place in all masechtos. Check before and after the Maharsha, that's usually where the printers found place to squeeze it in. The standard Vilna 'Shaar Blaat' mentions it's collation at the bottom of side two in the section ומלבד כל אלו הוספנו by number 15, ...

Megila 30a - 9 lines from the bottom has a dispute as to what is the third Shabbos. The Tanna Kama says the Shabbos immediately after Purim, and Rabbi Chama B'Rab Chanina says it is the Shabbos that is closer to Nissan. The Gemara says there is no dispute, it depends when Rosh Chodesh Nisaan occurs. If it occurs on Shabbos then Parshas Para will be read on ...

אין אדם רואה חוב אצל עצמו. כתובות קה ע׳ב. This is in a few other places in ש׳ס too.

Its none other than Eliyahu Hanavi as you can see from Berachos 6b : ההוא גברא דקא מצלי אחורי בי כנישתא ולא מהדר אפיה לבי כנישתא חלף אליהו חזייה אידמי ליה כטייעא ,that Eliyahu appeared as an Arab merchant. There are more sources which indicate him as such. The gemara in Bava Basra 73b brings this story: ואמר רבה בר בר חנה זימנא חדא הוה קא אזלינן במדברא ...

Well to quote Artscroll Hakadosh: "מי יימר דמגנבא-who is to say that [the deposit] will be stolen" "ואם תימצי לומר דמגנבא-and even if you can say who is to say with certainty that it will be stolen" "מי יימר דמשתכח גנב -who is to say that the thief will be apprehended?" "ואי משתכח גנב-and even if the thief is apprehended," "מי יימר ...

Mishna Berura 167:51 says that the word רחמנא in Hashems name in Lashon Bavli. I would imagine that since the Talmud Bavli was not written in Hebrew they used the name of Hashem which was popular in the then current day vernacular.

ד"ה = Divrei Hamaschil / Hamatchil. It means the Rashi begins with these words. דברי / Divrei = the words המתחיל / Hamaschil / Hamatchil = that Rashi begins with This helps one find which Rashi the reference is referring to.

This is in a Mishna in Berachos 9:2. The meaning (as stated by Rabbi Ovadia Bartenura there) is that He does good to me and good to others.

I can answer only 1 of your questions, as I have memorized the names of all the 63 tractates ... unless you want to include the "small tractates" that appear after Avodah zarah (such as Avot D'Rav Nattan) - I think that would add another 5 or 6 to that number. Many tractates only have mishnah - not Gemarrah. Wikipedia article on Talmud should provide you ...

The Maharal says that these were Arab merchants he does not understand the word טייעא‏ to mean traveler. מצינו פעמים הרבה בישמעאלים שהם סוחרים, שבכל מקום שאמר בתלמוד ההוא טייעא רוצה לומר סוחר ישמעאלי [גבורות ה' פרק יא] "We find many times that Arabs are merchants, for in every place in the Talmud where it says "there was a merchant" the meaning is an Arab ...

R. Sherira Gaon (Iggeres R. Shrira Gaon) famously writes that "it was decided" that Amoraim cannot argue on tannaim.

No. This is a commonly stated rule post-Talmud, but it is also simply accepted without debate in the Talmud. One example is Gitten 49b-50a where Mar Zutra makes a statement that when the Mishna says that when land is foreclosed on to collect a Kesuba the land taken from the least valuable-per-acre land (Ziburis) it is only referring to if the husband dies ...

There seems to be such a publication - and you can see the Tractate on Bava Metzia here. I can't figure out how to get to the other volumes, if they exist. It was written by R' Nisim Binyamin Ochana, and printed in Port Sa'id in 1929

The Ein Mishpat Ner Mitswa lists the places that these subjects are mentioned in the Halachic works. Each paragraph has a number (counting from the beginning of the chapter), and one or more letters indicating where on the page it's referring to. 21 א Tur and Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayim, chapter 320, section 18. 22 א ב Maimonides, chapter 5 of the ...

In the introduction to the Shulchan Aruch, the Mechaber, HaRav HaGaon Yosef Caro Z"tzl explained that his work was meant to be learned over a period of 30 days. (lol) Thus, from a stand point such as that, the basic source of psak halacha shouldn't take more than a month or so to actually take in at least on a basic level. The Talmud on the other hand can ...
