(a) What is the difference whether someone redeems his own Ma'aser Sheini,
to take the money to Yerushalayim or someone else's?
So how do we establish the Beraisa by Ma'aser de'Rabbanan, even in the times
when Yovel was practiced?
(b) What does the Tana of the Beraisa therefore mean when he says 'Ma'arimin
al Ma'aser Sheini? How could one avoid having to add an extra fifth?
(c) Whom does the Tana permit him to use for this trick?
(d) On what grounds do we refute the initial explanation (to answer how the
Shifchah ha'Ivri'ah, who is a Ketanah can acquire the acquire on his

'Hiskabel Li Giti'? Why is that?
(b) Would this also be the case if her father were to appoint a Sheli'ach to
receive her Get on her behalf?
(c) If a man says to his Sheli'ach 'Ten Get Zeh le'Ishti be'Makom P'loni'
and he hands it to her somewhere else, she is not divorced.
Why would this
not be the case, if he said 'Harei Hi be'Makom P'loni'?
(d) What distinction does the Tana Kama of our Mishnah draw between a woman
who says to her Sheli'ach 'Hiskabel Li Giti be'Makom P'loni', and one who
says 'Havei Li mi'Makom P'loni'?

(a) One Beraisa states that if a man instructs his Sheli'ach to place an
Eiruv on his behalf consisting of dates, and he made the Eiruv with dried
figs or vice-versa, his Eiruv is valid, whereas another Beraisa states that
it is not.
How does ...
(b) What then, is the reason of the Tana in the second Beraisa?
- ... Rabah reconcile the two Beraisos by making a Machlokes Tana'im?
- ... Rav Yosef reconcile them even if they both follow the opinion of the Rabbanan? Why, in the first Beraisa, would the Rabbanan agree with Rebbi Elazar?
(a) There is a divergence of opinion between the Tana'im of two Beraisos
regarding someone who asks his Sheli'ach to place an Eiruv in a tower, and
he placed it in a dovecote or vice-versa.

What does he say
about 'Shilchuhah'; 'Shavkuhah'; 'Tarchuhah'?
