Chullin is up! And some of Rabbi Yishmael’s students...

I am pleased to announce that we know have Mi vaMi up on masechet Chullin. We rely on Sefaria’s text as a base for our processing, and they follow the Daf Yomi cycle. As Chullin fast approaches, they put the tractate up, and so we updated our data as well.

Today’s daf (Menachot 90b) contains a brayta with a dispute between Rabbi Yoshiah and Rabbi Yonatan. These fifth-generation Tannaim are students of Rabbi Yishmael. We more often see other fifth-generation Tannaim, Rabbi Meir, Rabbi Yehuda, Rabbi Shimon, and Rabbi Eleazar, who were students of Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Yishmael and Rabbi Akiva work within different frameworks of halachic exegesis.

Indeed, on the next daf, we will see the gemara analyze this brayta in terms of klal ufrat, which is within Rabbi Yishmael’s framework, rather than ribbuy miut, which is that of Rabbi Akiva.
