GITIN 63 (18 Nisan) - Dedicated l'Iluy Nishmas: Dov Ber ben Moshe Mordechai
z'l -- Mr. Bernie Slotin, of Savannah, Georgia -- who passed away on Chol
ha'Moed Pesach 5759 (18 Nisan - April 4, 1999), by his grandson, Rabbi
Yisroel Shaw and family.
(a) Our Mishnah cites the case of a man who said to a Sheli'ach 'Hiskabel
Get Zeh le'Ishti ... Im Ratzah Lachzor, Yachzor'.
What does Rav Huna bar
Chiya extrapolate from there that is a Kashya on Rav Nachman ... Amar Rav
(in the case of 'Havei Li Giti, ve'Ishtecha Amrah Hiskabel Li Giti ... Afilu
Higi'a Get le'Yadah, Einah Megureshes')?
(b) Why is this not a Kashya according to Rav Ashi's interpretation of Rav
Nachman (with which we just concluded)?
(c) How do we answer Rav Huna bar Chiya's Kashya?
(a) Based on the fact that a Ketanah cannot appoint a Sheli'ach, what does
the Tana of the Beraisa say about a Ketanah who said to a Sheli'ach
'Hiskabel Li Giti'?
(b) How do we refute Rava's proof from here that when the husband gives his
wife a Get, he wants it to take effect in whichever way possible (like we
asked before on Rav Nachman)?
(a) In another Beraisa, the Tana speaks about a case of 'Havei Li Giti,
ve'Ishtecha Amrah Hiskabel Li Giti; Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Ishtecha Amrah
Havei Li Giti, ve'Hu Amar Holech vet's Lah, Z'chi Lah ve'Hiskabel Lah'.
(b) How do we finally establish it according to Rav Nachman?
- ... does the Beraisa conclude?
- ... do we initially establish the Beraisa to pose a Kashya on Rav Nachman?
(c) What do we then try to prove from the fact that, in the case of
'Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Ishtecha Amrah Havei Li Giti ... Holech ve'Ten Lah, Im
Ratzah Lachzor Yachzor'?
(d) How do we refute this proof? How does this case differ from the case
above 'Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Ishtecha Amrah Havei Li Giti ... Heilech K'mo
she'Amrah ... '?
(a) The Tana Kama in a Beraisa states 'Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Ishtecha Amrah
Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Hu Amar *Holech ve'Ten Lah*, Z'chi Lah ve'Hiskabel Lah
... Lo Yachzor'.
Answers to questions
Why is that?
(b) What does Rebbi Nasan say?
(c) After echoing the words of the Tana Kama, Rebbi adds a case where it
would be possible for the husband to retract.
What is it?

the Chidush of 'I Efshi'.
What other reason might he have had for adding
(a) Rebbi Nasan holds 'Holech La'av ki'Zechi'.
What She'eilah do we ask
regarding 'Heilech', according to him?
(b) How do we ...
(c) What do we extrapolate from the Beraisa 'Lefichach, Im Amar Lo ha'Ba'al
I Efshar she'Tekabel Lah Ela Holech ve'Ten Lah Ratzah Lachzor Yachzor'?
- ... try to resolve the She'eilah from the Beraisa 'ha'Ishah she'Amrah Hiskabel Li Giti, (and he said to the Sheli'ach '*Holech* Get Zeh le'Ishti') Ratzah Lachzor Lo Yachzor'? What does 'Holech' mean?
- ... refute this proof? Who else might be the author of the Beraisa? How will we then interpret 'Holech'?
(d) Like whom do we establish this Beraisa? What does 'Holech' mean?
(a) What distinction does the Tana of another Beraisa make between 'Holech
Get Zeh le'Ishti', and Heilech Get Zeh le'Ishti'?
(b) What do we finally prove from here? Why must the author be Rebbi Nasan?
(a) What is the basis of Rav Aba Amar Rav Huna Amar Rav's ruling that in a
case of 'Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Ishtecha Amrah Hiskabel Li Giti, ve'Hu Amar
Holech ve'Ten Lah, Choletzes ve'Lo Misyabemes'?
(b) Rav also says 'Holech Manah li'Peloni she'Ani Chayav Lo, Chayav
be'Acharayuso, ve'Im Ba Lachzor, *Eino Chozer*' (suggesting that he holds
How do we reconcile these two seemingly contradictory
(a) Rav prohibits a woman from appointing a Sheli'ach to receive her Get
from her husband's Sheli'ach. Rav's reason might be because it is a slight
on her husband not to receive the Get directly.
What other reason might
govern Rav's ruling?

Get found her kneading dough?
(b) Why did Rav Nachman quote Rebbi Chanina here?
(c) What objection did Rava raise to that?

finally rules le'Chumra.
On what principle is this Chumra based?

the woman required 'Get va'Chalitzah'.
What did he mean by that (seeing as
the two are a contradiction in terms)?

where the witnesses erred and wrote the woman's name as Tafasa, instead of
