If the festival of weeks fell on a Friday, Beth Shammai say: the day for slaughter, is after the Sabbath. And Beth Hillel say: the day for slaughter is not after the Sabbath. They agree, however, that if it fall on the Sabbath, the day for slaughter is after the Sabbath. The High Priest does not [in that case] put on his [special] robes, and mourning and fasting are permitted, in order not to confirm the view of those who say that the festival of weeks [invariably] follows the Sabbath.   חגיגה 2.4
עצרת שחלה להיות ערב שבת-- בית שמאי אומרין, יום טבוח לאחר שבת; בית הלל אומרין, אין לה יום טבוח׃ מודים שאם חלה להיות בשבת-- שיום טבוח לאחר שבת, ואין כוהן גדול מתלבש בכליו, ומותרים בספד ובתענית, שלא לקיים את דברי האומרים עצרת לאחר שבת
The hands have to be rinsed for [eating] unconsecrated [food], and [second] tithe, and for Terumah [heave-offering]; but for hallowed things [the hands] have to be immersed. In regard to the [water of] purification, if one`s hands became defiled, one`s [whole] body is deemed defiled. If one bathed for unconsecrated [food], and intended to be rendered fit solely for unconsecrated [food], one is prohibited from [partaking of second] tithe.  חגיגה 2.5
נוטלין לידיים לחולין, ולמעשר, ולתרומה; ולקודש, מטבילין׃ ולחטאת-- אם נטמאו ידיו, נטמא גופו
