Gemara

Question:

How can we understand Rabbeinu Tam in Kiddushin 26a that says the way to do a minyan hagbah on a פיל is by getting it to jump.
But elephants don’t jump.
Could it be that maybe a פיל isn’t an elephant?

Answer:

Interesting point. My understanding of Tosefos is that he means to bring out the point that there is an idea of hagbah even if the person doesn’t physically lift the item but manipulates the item to rise.
