Eruvin 64


(a) Shmuel permits even the Jewish worker of a non-Jew to place his Eruv without having to rent the non-Jew's rights in the courtyard. Abaye asked Rav Yosef what the Din would be if there were five such workers.
What was he asking him?

(b) What did Rav Yosef reply?

(c) What is the difference between 'Sechiro' and 'Lekito'?

(a) What did Rav Nachman say about Rav Yehudah Amar Shmuel's statement ...
1. ... 'Afilu Sechiro, va'Afilu Lekito'.
2. ... that someone who has drunk wine, should abstain from issuing rulings.
(b) What did Rava learn from the Pasuk in Mishlei "ve'Ro'eh *Zonos* Ye'abed Hon"?

(c) And what was Rav Nachman's response when Rava queried him about this?

(a) Both someone who *has* drunk, and someone who *is* drunk, are forbidden to Daven.
In which way do their Dinim differ?

(b) How does one define someone who is drunk?

(c) What prompted Rebbi Aba bar Shumni and Rav Menashya bar Yirmiyah from Difti to tell each other a Chidush?

(d) What Chidush (with regard to the property of a convert) did the second one say?

Answers to questions



(a) Rav Sheshes extends this even to a husband who inherits his wife, and Rava, to a lucrative deal.
Which case does Rav Papa add to the list?

(b) What do they all have in common, and what is the reason for this?

(c) What might be an alternative to purchasing a Sefer-Torah with some of the money?

(d) From where do we learn that performing a Mitzvah with some of the money results in a blessing on the rest?

(a) Which two things cause the effects of wine to wear off?

(b) When will both of these be counter-productive?

(a) Raban Gamliel first instructed Rebbi Ilai to move the loaf of bread from the road, then he told Mavgai the gentile (whom they met by chance) to take it from him.
What caused Rebbi Ilai to exclaim that Raban Gamliel had Ru'ach ha'Kodesh?

(b) Which three things did Rebbi Ilai learn from Raban Gamliel's statements?

(c) Upon arrival in Keziv, Raban Gamliel refused to release that man's vows because he had drunk a Revi'is of Italian wine. So the man accompanied them from Keziv until Sulma de'Tzur - a distance of three Mil. Then, Raban Gamliel got off his donkey, and sat down to release his vow.
Which Chidush - to do with Hilchos Nedarim - did Rebbi Ilai learn from Raban Gamliel's actions?

(a) How do we reconcile the fact that it took a distance of *three* Mil for the effects of the wine to wear off, and not just *one*, like Shmuel taught earlier?

(b) The Gemara first answered that Italian wine is stronger than ordinary wine.
Why is this answer unacceptable?

(a) How do we reconcile Rav Nachman, who permits the nullification of vows even whilst standing or riding, with Raban Gamliel, who requires that one sits? What is the basis of this Machlokes?

(b) What Pesach shel Charatah did Raban Gamliel find for that man who accompanied him until Sulma de'Tzur?

(a) Rebbi Yochanan quoting Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai, says that nowadays, it is permitted to walk past bread lying in the street.
Why is that?

(b) Why does the Beraisa differentiate between a loaf of bread and pieces of bread? Is it because the witches confine their witchcraft to whole loaves, but not to pieces?

(c) What about the Pasuk in Yechezkel, which specifically mentions peices of bread in connection with witchcraft?

(a) What did Rebbi Elazar apparently mean when he said that he was able to exempt the world from Din since the time of the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash?

(b) In which regard, according to the Beraisa, is a man who is drunk to the extent that he cannot stand before a king, Patur? Is he absolved from punishment for sins that he committed in that state?

(c) Then what did Rebbi Elazar ben Azarya mean (in a.)?

(d) Is a person who is drunk ever absolved from punishment?
