A great Rashash - Sanhedrin 97a

See my previous post on 6093 and 340. I found that post and this post in the Yalkut Mefarshim to Sanhedrin 97a. The Rashash, Rabbi Shmuel Strashun (pictured above) was well-to-do, so it would be natural that a statement that Moshiach will not come until the perutah will be eliminated from the pocket might cause him some concern! His pshat was very relevant (indeed, even more so today!):


  1. I'd love to understand this sentence: "Moshiach will not come until the perutah will be eliminated from the pocket will be eliminate."
