Zevachim 116: Tereifa on the Ark?, King David's Payments for the Site of the Altar

Some very brief notes on today's daf:

  • what disqualified an animal from being on Noah's ark?
  • the rabbis question disabilities from birth and disabilities that are acquired 
  • could Noah himself be a tereifa?
  • the rabbis find proof texts attesting to Noah's likely 'perfection'
  • the conversation about ritual impurity, disqualification from sacrifice, and what could be a tereifa suggests that the rabbi
  • because King David counted the Jewish people, there was a plague
  • King David built an altar on a hilltop that became the site of the Temple years later
  • The hilltop belonged to Aravnah the Jebusite who offered his cattle as sacrifices
  • There is a debate about how many silver/gold shekalim were collected and shared with the twelve tribes
