this is a good Question, very interesting. I want to separate it in a couple of different parts: Your first assumption is that Cohen, will be less unclean when the dead will disappear. --> You consider the being in the same Ohel as a Tum'a bechiburim, and you rule as the opinion on Gemara that Chibure Adam Bemet Deorayta. So without dead in the Ohel, not ...

The simple answer is that inasmuch as the pre-bedikah washing is for the purpose of cleanliness as apposed to leisure, in is not a violation of the prohibition of "rechitzah".Rambam

This is a very good question. It is also broad. The question is that you assume that everybody is Tme Met. And without Me Hat'at, we remain Tme Met. Why, despite the situation of permanent Tum'a (i.e. until the next Para Aduma preparation), we need to continue to pay attention to Tum'a. . Let's start with the most spread: Nidda (following the Sefer ...

Blu Greenberg notes (I'll look into where a bit later) that the tumah of niddah is in some sense unrelated to the prohibition to a husband of relations with a niddah. The latter exists nowadays, but the former does not practically. For example, a chair or other furniture a niddah has sat on becomes ritually impure. Yet no one declines sitting where the ...

The Mishna treats in this chapter about two kinds of Kaveret. Both are repeated several times. The first occurrence is in Mishna 3: בַּמֶּה דְבָרִים אֲמוּרִים, בִּזְמַן שֶׁהִיא כְלִי מְחֻלְחָלֶת. הָיְתָה פְחוּתָה וּפְקוּקָה בְקַשׁ אוֹ אֲפוּצָה, אֵיזוֹ הִיא אֲפוּצָה, כֹּל שֶׁאֵין לָהּ טֶפַח מִמָּקוֹם אֶחָד The first kind "Mechulchelet". There are ...

If the point is wat is "ובא השמש וטהר", the answer seems obvious. About shmirah of shomeret yom keneged yom, One Tana, Rabbi yossi thinks that night may be shimur. But about Haarev shemesh Gemara Brachot 2a&b said explicitely that the happening of the night is the criterion. Before night the cleanness candidate is called Tevul yom and cannot eat Teruma i ...

After immersion from a first-order impurity, a person or vessel remains somewhat impure until sundown (called "Tevul Yom"). (Rambam, Shar Avot HaTumah 10:1) A Tevul Yom who touched Terumah renders it third-order impure, and if they touch Temple sacrifices they render them fourth-order impure (ibid. :3). A Tevul Yom does not affect people, vessels, standard ...

Even in Temple times, from immersion until nightfall their status is called tvul yom. They're just ever-so-slightly "impure" enough that they can't touch holy food such as terumah or sacrifices, but touching people wouldn't do anything. Today this is all pretty much a moot point anyhow, and the best practice (halachically and psychologically) is to get back ...
