Gitin 71

GITIN 71 (26 Nissan)- has been dedicated by Mr. Avi Berger (of Queens, N.Y.) in memory of his mother, Leah bas Michel Mordechai on the day of her Yahrzeit.

1) [line 1] PEIREI - seasonal fruits (such as cherries (O.F. cerises) in the winter and loquats (O.F. nesples) in the summer, Rashi)

2) [line 14] ISHTAKEL MILULEI - his speech was taken (ILeM is an acronym for IshtakeL Milulei)

3) [line 21] MASA'OS U'MATANOS - transactions (purchases and sales) and gifts

4) [line 23] EDUS ISHAH (testimony to permit a widow to remarry)
Although the Torah normally requires two male witnesses in order to confirm a fact through testimony, the Rabanan allowed a woman to remarry based on the testimony of even a single witness who testifies that her husband has died, even if the witness is a woman or a slave. Here, the Gemara tells us that the Rabanan also permit testifying in writing in such a case.

5) [line 25] YERUSHAS BENO HA'BECHOR - the inheritance of his firstborn son (the first male born to a father inherits a double portion of his father's estate)

6) [line 32] K'SHEM SHE'KONSAH B'REMIZAH, KACH MOTZI'AH B'REMIZAH (NISU'EI CHERESH) - just like he marries her through gestures, so, too, he divorces her with gestures The marriage of a Cheresh (a deaf-mute) is not a valid marriage mid'Oraisa, but only mid'Rabanan. Since the Rabanan allowed him to become married through gestures, they allowed him to annul it the same way.

7) [line 40] MICHLEFA - might be confused with


8) [line 16] D'CHAZINA LEI D'CHARIF - we see that he is sharp (intelligent)
9) [line 26] 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.

11) [line 34] BEI TELASA - three people
12) [line 36] D'LO AMAR "IMRU" - he (the husband) did not tell [the Sheluchim], "Tell [others to write the Get]!"

13) [line 39] CHASAM SOFER - the signature of the scribe [who wrote the Get] (together with the signature of another witness are valid signatures to make the Get valid)
