Eruvin 64

1) [line 2] D'MACHREZINAN - if we make an announcement [that the Eruv does not have any effect]

2) [line 3] ACHRAZTA L'DARDEKEI?! - does an announcement help for children that are yet to be born?!

3) [line 4] LIKRIV LEI - he should try to become the non-Jew's friend
4a) [line 5] SECHIRO - a regular hired laborer
b) [line 5] LEKITO - a hired laborer at reaping and harvesting time
5) [line 16] LO TZILA DA'ATA'I - my mind is not clear
6) [line 18] "[ISH OHEV CHOCHMAH YISAMACH AVIV,] V'RO'EH ZONOS YE'ABED HON" - "[He who loves wisdom gladdens his father,] but he who keeps company with harlots wastes his wealth." (Mishlei 29:3) - This is the only place in the Tanach where the word Zonos appears with two letters Vav. The word is broken into two parts and read Zo (this) Na'eh (is pleasing). (The second Vav is exchanged for the letters Alef and Heh, whose Gematriya is 6 = Vav.) Hence the Gemara learns from this verse that if a person says that a Torah teaching is pleasing, he will loose his wealth of Torah knowledge, since he implies that there are other teachings that are not pleasing. The Tav at the end of the word includes the instance when a person says that a particular teaching is not pleasing (RASHI to Mishley ibid. and MAHARSHA here).

11) [line 33] NICHSEI HA'GER
(a) When a Jew dies, his closest relatives inherit his estate (according to the hierarchy established by the Torah as recorded in Bamidbar 27:8-11). Since all of the Jews are related to each other (at least through Yakov Avinu and his sons), every Jew must have at least one heir. A convert, however, may have no heirs (since his non-Jewish relatives do not inherit his estate). When a convert dies without heirs, his estate becomes Hefker (ownerless). The first person who takes possession of his belongings becomes their owner.
(b) In order to take possession of the estate of a convert who dies without any heirs, one must make a Ma'aseh Kinyan (a formal Halachically-binding act of possession), as in all cases of taking possession of items that are Hefker. The forms of Ma'aseh Kinyan that may be used are: for Metaltelin (movable goods) - (1) Hagbahah, i.e. lifting an item; (2) Meshichah (lit. pulling), i.e. causing an item to move; (3) Chatzer, i.e. bringing the item into his domain; for Mekarka'in (real estate) - Chazakah, i.e. performing an act that is normally performed by an owner.
(c) Examples of Chazakah are Na'al (locking), Gadar (fencing in) and Paratz (making a breach in a fence to create an entrance) or any act that is done to *enhance* the land, such as digging to improve a field and the like (Mishnah Bava Basra 42a).


12) [line 1] AVAD ISKA V'RAVACH - he made a business deal that profited
*13*) [line 2] AFILU MATZA METZI'AH - that is, even though he didn't work hard at all to obtain the object, he should still take care not to lose it by investing in a Mitzvah (CHIDUSHEI HA'MEIRI)

20) [line 17] BURGANIN - huts
21) [line 17] MAVGAI SHAMNI - my name is Mavgai

23) [line 28] SULMA SHEL TZOR - the Ladder of Tyre (Scala Tyriorum), a promontory south of Tyre on the southern coast of Lebanon

24) [line 43] POSCHIN B'CHARATAH
(a) The laws of Nedarim (vows) are described in the Torah in Bamidbar 30:2- 17. If a person makes a vow not to eat a certain food and he eats from that food after being warned by two witnesses not to, he gets Malkos.
(b) When a person makes a Neder or Nezirus, he may have it revoked by a Beis Din of three (if they are not outstanding authorities) or a Yachid Mumcheh (an outstanding authority). The general method used is that Beis Din investigates whether the one who made the Neder would not have made the Neder in the first place had he been aware of a particular fact.

25) [line 45] "YESH BOTEH K'MADKEROS CHEREV ..." - "There is one who speaks like the stabs of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." (Mishlei 12:18)

26) [line 50] V'A'PETITIN LO AVDAN? - do they not perform witchcraft on pieces of bread?

27) [line 50] "VA'TECHALELNAH OSI EL AMI ..." - "And will you profane Me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread ..." (Yechezkel 13:19) - Those who practice witchcraft profane the name of HaSh- m, as it states in Chulin 7b.

28) [last line] D'SHAKLEI B'AGRAIHU - they would take pieces of bread for their wages
