Gitin 18

GITIN 18 - This Daf has been sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of love for Torah and those who study it.

1) Ravina asked ...

  1. ... Rava what the point of the Takanas Chachamim of dating a Get is, seeing as the husband may well have placed the Get in his pocket in the hope that they will make up their disputes, and only handed to his wife at a later date.
    What was Rava's reply?
  2. ... Rav Ashi the same Kashya with regard to Gitin that arrived from overseas in Tishri, but which are dated in Nisan.
    What was Rav Ashi's reply?
(a) According to Rav, one reckons the three months waiting period between one marriage and the next from the time that the woman receives the Get.
What does Shmuel say?

(b) Rav Nasan bar Hoshaya queried Shmuel from two women who live in the same Chatzer.
What is ...

  1. ... the case?
  2. ... the problem?
(c) How does Abaye resolve this Kashya?
(a) One Beraisa supports Rav, another Beraisa supports Shmuel.
What does the Tana rule in the former, with regard to a Sheli'ach who spent three months bringing the Get to the woman?

(b) The Tana concludes there 'u'le'Get Yashan Lo Chaishinan'.
What is a Get Yashan?

(c) Why is it Pasul?

(d) Why is the Tana of the Beraisa not concerned about a Get Yashan?

(a) In the Beraisa that supports Shmuel, what does the Tana say about a case where the husband handed a Get to a third party to give to his wife in three months time.

(b) Rav Kahana, Rav Papi and Rav Ashi reckoned from the time of writing (like Shmuel). Rav Papa and Rav Huna Brei de'Rav Yehoshua, from the time the woman receives it (like Rav).
Like whom is the Halachah?

(a) The termination of Sh'mitah generally cancels outstanding loans.
Why does it not cancel a Kesuvah?

(b) According to Rav, a Kesuvah only enters the realm of a loan after the woman has claimed part of it and the remainder has been transformed into a loan.
What does Shmuel say?

(c) At which stage does a Kesuvah leave the realm of Ma'aseh Beis-Din and become a loan?

(d) Which Amora enjoys the support of a Beraisa?

(a) The Tana (of the Beraisa which supports Shmuel) lists three cases (all to do with Nashim) together with Kesuvah.
What are they?

(b) What concession do Sh'taros of Ma'aseh Beis-Din enjoy over ordinary Sh'taros with regard to their signing?

(c) On what grounds does Shmuel incorporate Kesuvos in the realm Ma'aseh Beis-Din?

(a) The Kesuvah of Rav Chiya bar Rav was signed the night after it was written, and Rav himself was one of the signatories.
Does this mean that Rav agrees with Shmuel regarding all Sh'taros of this nature?

(b) What should 'Asukin be'Oso Inyan' make any difference?

(a) Rebbi Shimon validates a Get that is written by day and signed the following night.
Why is that?

(b) Resh Lakish qualifies Rebbi Shimon's opinion, restricting it to when they signed that night, but not later.
Why is that?

(c) What does Rebbi Yochanan say?

Answers to questions



(a) According to Resh Lakish, if a man asks ten men to write a Get, all of them are witnesses.
What does Rebbi Yochanan say?

(b) What does the Mishnah in ha'Omer say about a man who says to ten people 'Kisvu Get le'Ishti'?

(c) How will we reconcile Rebbi Yochanan and Resh Lakish with the Mishnah in ha'Omer?

(d) There are two ramifications of their Machlokes. One of them is when two of the men concerned signed on the same day and the remainder, on subsequent days. According to Rebbi Yochanan, the Get is Kasher, according to Resh Lakish, it is Mukdam and therefore Pasul.
What is the other?

10) There is a Machlokes whether the Get will be Kasher, according to Rebbi Yochanan, if the relatives or the Pasul witnesses signed first.
On what grounds would the Get ...
  1. ... still be Kasher?
  2. ... be Pasul?
(a) What did Rebbi Yehoshua ben Levi say concerning the Get on which two of the specified men signed on the same day, and the others on subsequent days?

(b) How did he contend with Resh Lakish, who restricted Rebbi Shimon's ruling to when the signatories signed immediately?

(c) If Rebbi Yehoshua ben Levi holds like Rebbi Yochanan, then why did he need to come on to Rebbi Shimon, seeing as the subsequent signatories only sign in order to fulfill the condition (but not as witnesses)?
