Doing the Daf summary #2

To see this picture debunked, see here

Continuing what I started last week, here is a summary of Daf Yomi posts at my Daf Yomi blog:

Berachot daf 8: Is there any Targum Onkelos on Atarot v'Divon? Given that the gemara assumes that there is no such Targum, how come we have it in our Mikraos Gedolos?

Daf 10: יִתַּמּוּ חַטָּאִים מִן-הָאָרֶץ -- Considering Beruriah's derasha, what the pasuk means on a peshat level, how the gemara itself assumes the peshat level elsewhere.

Also, College students and sof zman krias Shema -- Given that we pasken like Rabbi Yehoshua that Shema is so long as someone is doing ובקומיך, though his example is kings who wake up "late", perhaps our sof zman krias Shema should shift to when college students wake up.

Daf 11: Is Midrash == Mikra? Considering the implications of the Beis Yosef conflating the two. I don't think that ultimately there are implications of this.

Also, 'As you travel on the road' as a kiyum -- that saying it on the road, rather than stopping to lie down, reflects the idea of integrating kabbalas ol malchus Shamayim into your life.

Daf 12: All the days of your life -- trying to understand the respective derashot of Ben Zoma and the Chachamim, about how kol includes the nights or the messianic days.

Also, Making oneself ill by praying -- I think it is actually a derasha on גם אנכי חלילה לי.

Also, The Heart as the seat of the Intellect -- a reaction to a mussar point in Rabbi Chaim Eisenstein's daf shiur. Don't derive deep messages about the nature of those who turn to heresy on the basis of the derasha of אחרי לבבכם זו מינות. After all, Chazal viewed the heart as the seat of the intellect, just like many of their non-Jewish contemporaries.

Daf 13: Extending the daled in Echad -- is possible, if you pronounce it as Chazal did, like the 'th' in 'either'.

Daf 14: Tefillin before Shema or after it? Don't blame the messenger from bringing Rav's tefillin late, since putting on tefillin after Shema is his explicit position, as stated in the Yerushalmi.

Daf 15: What does Rabbi Yossi derive from 'Shema'? Does he really derive two lessons from one word?

Also, Careful pronunciation of the Shema -- and which letters run together, for which individuals.

Also, A transfer of a sugya: going after water for tefillah -- as described in the Rosh, and further developed by yours truly.

Daf 15 and 16: In defense of Rav Yosef and Rav Sheshet -- how we can save their original statements?

Daf 16: How does ובלכתך בדרך exempt intercourse with a virgin? It is unclear that the girsa of the brayta, as it appears in printed Bavli and Yerushalmi, is correct. Perhaps the Tosefta is correct. But, if our girsa is correct, then we can make a lovely derasha on the basis of a pasuk in Mishlei, וְדֶרֶךְ גֶּבֶר בְּעַלְמָה.
