Previous daf

Gitin 29

GITIN 29 & 30 - have been anonymously dedicated by a very special Marbitz Torah and student of the Daf from Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel.

1) [line 5] K"M - Kol Makom
2) [line 28] ORCHA D'MILSA - the standard case [when a Shali'ach needs to appoint another Shali'ach is when he becomes ill]

3) [line 29] HOLECH - take, transport [this Get to my wife]
4) [line 44] MILEI - words, instructions

(a) It is possible to make a Shali'ach (an agent) to establish all Kinyanim (acquisitions; the word "Kinyan" connotes a change of ownership or status, such as sales, gifts, Gitin and Kidushin). The Gemara states, "Shelucho Shel Adam Kemoso," i.e. [the act performed by] the Shali'ach of a person is like [an act performed by the person] himself (Kidushin 41b).
(b) A Shali'ach can appoint another Shali'ach in his place, as long as the person who sent him has no objections. The Gemara explains that this only applies if the Shali'ach was given an *object* with which he was expected to effect a Kinyan (e.g., if the Shali'ach was given a Get to deliver to the person's wife). If the Shali'ach only received verbal instructions ("Milei") to execute, however, his appointment is not considered authoritative enough for the Shali'ach to appoint another Shali'ach.

6a) [line 51] BAYIS - [the ground floor of] a house
b) [line 51] ALIYAH - the second story of a house
7) [last line] GITA MA'ALYA - a valid Get


8) [line 27] D'KATNUSA HI - (lit. it is of his youth) this teaching was stated while my father was young, and as such it can be refuted

9) [line 28] MIDI MESHASHA IS BEHU? - Do they have any substance (i.e. validity)?

10) [line 31] SHADAR - sent
11) [line 35] MILACH - your words, i.e. the instructions of your Shelichus
12) [line 37] ICHSUFU - they were humiliated
13a) [line 37] KAPCHINHU RAV SAFRA - Rav Safra "cut down"
b) [line 38] LI'TELASA RABANAN SEMUCHEI - three eminent Torah Sages who have received the "Semichah" ordination

14) [line 42] ISNIS B'GO TELASIN YOMIN - some unexpected circumstances came up within the thirty days [and he realized that he would not be able to deliver the Get]

15) [line 47] YB"CH - (Yud Beis Chodesh) twelve months
