beitza 21

the distracting raven

odd story that begins the discussion on a jew and a gentile having shared ownership of an animal, if it can be slaughtered on chag. R. Huna is asked the question about this and answers by saying: oh look! a raven has just flown past! distracting R. Aryva the Elder and leaves his question unanswered. the Talmud is not so easily distracted as the older rabbi and it continues to discuss about what can and cannot be done for a gentile on shabbat and festivals.
