Trying to make sense of the halakhah, and how it lines up with the disputants' positions. Which brings us to a discussion of terumah (and kodshim) and how to dispose of it on Erev Shabbat, when the first day of Pesach is Saturday night, and you can't burn on the 14th, because it's Shabbat. It's an open question for a time, which in turn raises the …

Pesachim 8 - How and where to check for chametz during the official check. Does a wine cellar need to be searched? Oil storage? Liquor (or beer)? Fish? Salt? Candles? Wood? Dates?

Pesachim 7 - When on Passover Eve does the prohibition against owning chametz kick in? And what if you use the items that you would have sold during the time after that time - will it work?
