What is the source for "Miktzas HaYom K'Kulo"? I realize it applies to Availus (mourning) and it is also brought up regarding Nazir but I could not find its source?

  • See: Pesachim 4a:2 "And learn from it that with regard to the halakhot of mourning, the legal status of part of the day is like that of an entire day." - sefaria.org/Pesachim.4a.2?lang=bi&with=all&lang2=en

  • Nazir megillah and niddah are the 3 masechtot. There are very long Tosfot

  • @Shmuel the :2 is a made up Sefaria convention
