Masechet Zevachim BIyun 33a: תיקף לסמיכה שחיטה.The Kesef Mishna assumes according to the Rambam that if this principle was violated then it's no better or worse than the omission of סמיכה. That's fine בדיעבד since Smicha is only שיירי מצוה. We will investigate an alternative possible understanding of the Rambam according to which the non fulfillment of תיקף - although lacks the perfect fulfillment of Smicha - nonetheless the mitzva of smicha has been fulfilled. The difference will be if he rectifies the smicha before שחיטה. The last part of shiur will analyze a ספק raised by the Chofetz Chaim regarding a smicha that was performed outside the Azarah.
