Rav Shmuel Shimoni Hakoness – Shiur #07: An Animal That Fell Into A Garden Bava Kama 58A We shall deal today with two different topics discussed in the Gemara on p. 58a.

The first topic removes us slightly from the usual topics of this chapter to a discussion regarding a liability factor mentioned occasionally in our tractate – payment "to the extent of the benefit" [ma she-nehenet]. Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Shmuel Shimoni Hakoness: Shiur #08: Evaluating the damage in conjunction with another field Bava Kama 58b Attention should be paid to the fact that the leniency regarding valuation of the damage for the person who caused the damage is twofold. Masekhtot - Iyun

Rav Shmuel Shimoni Hakoness – Shiur #11: Comments on the end of chapter Hakoness Bava Kama 61a-62b Our goal today is to finish chapter Ha-Koness. We will not address all of the issues that arise at the end of the chapter, but rather we will limit ourselves to a brief discussion of the precautions that must be taken with respect to fire and of the laws governing mazik be-reshut (damage done with permission) that follow from them. Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Ezra Bick Bava Kama – Shiur #12: Concealed Goods That Were Damaged By Fire (61b-62A) The mishna on p. 61b records a dispute among the Tannaim as to whether a petur (exemption) from liability is granted in the case of tamun ba-aish (concealed goods that were damaged by fire); the Sages maintain that the owner of the fire is exempt, whereas Rabbi Yehuda maintains that he is liable.
