Gitin 51

GITIN 51 - sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of love for Torah and those who study it.

1) [line 3] ISUR NECHASIM - one tenth of the [remaining] estate (which a daughter is entitled to receive upon her engagement)

2) [line 5] VITRAH - she loses (her claim to a tenth of her father's estate)
3) [line 6] MOTZI'IN L'FARNASAH - [if a son sold the property of the father's estate,] we collect [for the daughter the tenth to which she is entitled] for her marriage expenses

4) [line 6] V'EIN MOTZI'IN LI'MEZONOS - but we do not collect for her support (lit. food)

5) [line 7] D'MEIKATZ KAITZA - a set amount (i.e. a tenth)
6) [line 9] KEIVAN D'IS LAH KOLA - since it becomes well known (lit. since it has a voice) [the fact that the daughter receives a tenth of her father's property]

7) [line 13] BESH'KANU MI'YADO - when a Kinyan was made with her
8) [line 14] MAI PASKA? - why did the Tana write it without qualification?

9) [line 19] D'LAV BI'TENAI BEIS DIN KA'ACHLAH - she does not eat (receive support from her mother's husband's estate) through a stipulation of Beis Din There are number of stipulations of marriage which are imposed by Beis Din, some of which are written explicitly in the Kesuvah. These are in addition to the basic obligations a man has to his wife according to the Torah. Among those stipulations which obligate the husband to his wife is that, after he dies, his daughters must be allowed to live in the house in which he lived, and must be provided for by his household, until they become married. This stipulation does not apply to his step-daughters (his wife's daughters from a previous marriage).

10) [line 20] V'CHI MIGRA GAR'AH?! - are they inferior to her?!
11) [line 22] EIMAR TZERAREI ASPESAH - I may say that the father, at the time of his death, gave her bundles of money to be used for buying food

12) [line 25] MISHUM D'LO KADIM HU - it is because [the investment made by the first buyer to improve the land] did not precede [the second buyer's purchase of the land]

13) [line 31] SHNEI KISIN KESHURIN - two money bags that are tied together
14) [line 34] SHEVARIM - oxen
15) [line 35] MENATCHEI MEHADADEI - become separated from one another on their own


16) [line 4] V'HE'ECHALTIV PERAS - and I paid him back half of the amount
17) [line 7] B'TO'ANO KATAN - when the one who makes the claim against him is a minor

18) [line 8] MIDI MESHASA IS BEI? - is there any effect from (lit. substance to) the claim?

19) [line 12] KULHU TA'ANASA NAMI - every claim also

If a person admits that he owes part of a claim, the Torah suspects that the person wants to temporarily postpone part of the payment but does not have the audacity to completely deny the claim. He is therefore required to take an oath, mid'Oraisa, on the part he denies (Shemos 22:8).

21) [line 17] BA'I L'MICHPEREI LEI - he wants to deny it
22) [line 19] BA'I D'LODI LEI - he wants to admit to him [that he owes him all of his claim]

23) [line 19] ISHTAMUTEI HU D'KA MISHTAMIT LEI - he is eluding him (i.e. to evade his claim)
