Scholars Decide Jewish Law

 

Mar Ukba visited Ginzak (NW Persia. He lived in Kafri which is east of the Persian Gulf). They asked him if fasting for a few hours counts as a whole day and he did not know. They asked him if the urns (of wine) of the non-Jews is permitted or not and he did not know. They asked him if Moses had served in the Tabernacle during the seven days of its consecration and he did not know. He went and asked in the Bet Midrash. (B. Taanit 11:)
