Produce from outside of the Land of Israel which came into the Land, is obligated in Challah a portion of a batch of bread dough given to a Kohen (priest, pl. Kohanim ) which becomes holy upon separation, and can only be consumed by Kohanim or their household. If it went out from here Israel to there outside the Land; Rabbi Eliezer obligates one in Challah, while Rabbi Akiva exempts one.


פֵּרוֹת חוּצָה לָאָרֶץ שֶׁנִּכְנְסוּ לָאָרֶץ, חַיָּבִים בַּחַלָּה. יָצְאוּ מִכָּאן לְשָׁם, רַבִּי אֱלִיעֶזֶר מְחַיֵּב, וְרַבִּי עֲקִיבָא פּוֹטֵר:


If earth from outside the Land came to the Land on aboat, the produce grown from that earth is subject to the laws of Ma'aserot tithes and the Sabbatical year. Rabbi Yehuda says, when is the time from which this applies? When the boat touches the ground. Dough which has been kneaded with fruit juice is obligated in Challah, and it may be eaten with unwashed hands.


עֲפַר חוּצָה לָאָרֶץ שֶׁבָּא בִסְפִינָה לָאָרֶץ, חַיֶּבֶת בַּמַּעַשְׂרוֹת וּבַשְּׁבִיעִית. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, אֵימָתַי, בִּזְמַן שֶׁהַסְּפִינָה גוֹשֶׁשֶׁת. עִסָּה שֶׁנִּלּוֹשָׁה בְמֵי פֵרוֹת, חַיֶּבֶת בַּחַלָּה, וְנֶאֱכֶלֶת בְּיָדַיִם מְסוֹאָבוֹת:


A woman may sit and separate her Challah and make the blessing while naked, since she has the ability to cover herself by crossing her legs, but a man may not do so. One who cannot knead one's dough in purity should make it in smaller portions of separate Kabim sing., Kav a specific unit of volume, each less than the minimum quantity obligated in Challah, rather than make the dough in a state of impurity. Rabbi Akiva says, let one defile it, and make it in a state of impurity rather than make it in separate Kabim, because just as one designates Challah as pure, so one designates that which is impure. S/he designates one the impure as Challah, and s/he designates one the pure as Challah, but separate Kabim quantities have no portion in the name of Challah.


הָאִשָּׁה יוֹשֶׁבֶת וְקוֹצָה חַלָּתָהּ עֲרֻמָּה, מִפְּנֵי שֶׁהִיא יְכוֹלָה לְכַסּוֹת עַצְמָהּ, אֲבָל לֹא הָאִישׁ. מִי שֶׁאֵינוֹ יָכוֹל לַעֲשׂוֹת עִסָּתוֹ בְטָהֳרָה, יַעֲשֶׂנָּה קַבִּין, וְאַל יַעֲשֶׂנָּה בְטֻמְאָה. וְרַבִּי עֲקִיבָא אוֹמֵר, יַעֲשֶׂנָּה בְטֻמְאָה וְאַל יַעֲשֶׂנָּה קַבִּים, שֶׁכְּשֵׁם שֶׁהוּא קוֹרֵא לַטְּהוֹרָה, כָּךְ הוּא קוֹרֵא לַטְּמֵאָה, לְזוֹ קוֹרֵא חַלָּה בַשֵּׁם וּלְזוֹ קוֹרֵא חַלָּה בַשֵּׁם, אֲבָל קַבַּיִם אֵין לָהֶם חֵלֶק בַּשֵּׁם:


If one makes the dough in separate Kabim quantities, and subsequently, they touch each other, they are exempt from Challah, unless they are attached together as one. Rabbi Eliezer says, though one who removes them from the oven and place them in a basket, the basket combines them relative to the minimum quantity to be obligated in Challah.


הָעוֹשֶׂה עִסָּתוֹ קַבִּים וְנָגְעוּ זֶה בָזֶה, פְּטוּרִים מִן הַחַלָּה עַד שֶׁיִּשּׁוֹכוּ. רַבִּי אֱלִיעֶזֶר אוֹמֵר, אַף הָרוֹדֶה וְנוֹתֵן לַסַּל, הַסַּל מְצָרְפָן לַחַלָּה:


If one separates Challah while it is flour, it is notvalid Challah, and if the Kohen takes it, it is considered as something stolen in the Kohen 's hand. The dough itself, though, is still obligated in Challah; if there is enough of a quantity of flour, it is subject to Challah and prohibited to non- Kohanim, these are the words of Rabbi Yehoshua. The Sages say to Rabbi Yehoshua: There was a case where Challah was mistakenly given, and a scholar non- Kohen seized it. Rabbi Yehoshua said to them, he did too do something damaging to himself, though he helped others who will think it is permitted.


הַמַּפְרִישׁ חַלָּתוֹ קֶמַח, אֵינָהּ חַלָּה, וְגָזֵל בְּיַד כֹּהֵן. הָעִסָּה עַצְמָהּ, חַיֶּבֶת בַּחַלָּה. וְהַקֶּמַח, אִם יֶשׁ בּוֹ כַשִּׁעוּר, חַיֶּבֶת בַּחַלָּה, וַאֲסוּרָה לְזָרִים, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי יְהוֹשֻׁעַ. אָמְרוּ לוֹ, מַעֲשֶׂה וּקְפָשָׁהּ זָקֵן זָר. אָמַר לָהֶם, אַף הוּא קִלְקֵל לְעַצְמוֹ וְתִקֵּן לַאֲחֵרִים:


Five quarters of a Kav of flour are obligated in Challah. If they and their leaven, and their light bran and their coarse bran make up five quarters, they are obligated in Challah. If their coarse bran was removed and then was returned to them, it is excluded from the total and is exempt from Challah.


חֲמֵשֶׁת רְבָעִים קֶמַח, חַיָּבִים בַּחַלָּה. הֵם וּשְׂאֹרָן וְסֻבָּן וּמֻרְסָנָן חֲמֵשֶׁת רְבָעִים, חַיָּבִין. נִטַּל מֻרְסָנָן מִתּוֹכָן וְחָזַר לְתוֹכָן, הֲרֵי אֵלּוּ פְטוּרִין:


The minimum measure of Challah is one twenty-fourth of the dough. If one makes dough for oneself, or if one makes a dough for his son's banquet, then the minimum measure is one twenty-fourth. If a baker makes dough to sell in the market, and if a woman makes dough to sell in the market, the minimum measure is one-forty eighth. If her dough became impure mistakenly, or accidentally, the minimum measure is one forty-eighth. If it was defiled on purpose, it is one twenty-fourth, so that the sinner does not profit from his sin.


שִׁעוּר הַחַלָּה, אֶחָד מֵעֶשְׂרִים וְאַרְבָּעָה. הָעוֹשֶׂה עִסָּה לְעַצְמוֹ, וְהָעוֹשֶׂה לְמִשְׁתֵּה בְנוֹ, אֶחָד מֵעֶשְׂרִים וְאַרְבָּעָה. נַחְתּוֹם שֶׁהוּא עוֹשֶׂה לִמְכֹּר בַּשּׁוּק, וְכֵן הָאִשָּׁה שֶׁהִיא עוֹשָׂה לִמְכֹּר בַּשּׁוּק, אֶחָד מֵאַרְבָּעִים וּשְׁמֹנָה. נִטְמֵאת עִסָּתָהּ שׁוֹגֶגֶת אוֹ אֲנוּסָה, אֶחָד מֵאַרְבָּעִים וּשְׁמֹנָה. נִטְמֵאת מְזִידָה, אֶחָד מֵעֶשְׂרִים וְאַרְבָּעָה, כְּדֵי שֶׁלֹּא יְהֵא חוֹטֵא נִשְׂכָּר:


Rabbi Eliezer says, Challah may be taken from pure dough on behalf of impure dough. How so? If one has pure dough and impure dough, he takes sufficient Challah from the dough whose Challah has not been taken, and he places an amount less than the volume of an egg in the middle, thus connecting the two so that he will be taking from that which is nearby, but the Sages forbade this.


רַבִּי אֱלִיעֶזֶר אוֹמֵר, נִטֶּלֶת מִן הַטָּהוֹר עַל הַטָּמֵא. כֵּיצַד, עִסָּה טְהוֹרָה וְעִסָּה טְמֵאָה, נוֹטֵל כְּדֵי חַלָּה מֵעִסָּה שֶׁלֹּא הוּרָם חַלָּתָהּ, וְנוֹתֵן פָּחוֹת מִכַּבֵּיצָה בָּאֶמְצַע, כְּדֵי שֶׁיִּטֹּל מִן הַמֻּקָּף. וַחֲכָמִים אוֹסְרִין:
