Kesuvos 27

KESUVOS 26 & 27 (6th and 7th days of Pesach) - have been generously dedicated by Dick and Beverly Horowitz of Los Angeles. May they be blessed with a life of joy and much Nachas from their very special children and grandchildren.

1) [line 15] D'RAMI LAH MIRMA - they that ask it as a contradiction
2) [line 23] NESHEI GANAVEI - the wives of convicted thieves (who were routinely violated after their husbands were hanged)

3) [line 24] BEN DUNAI - The name of a murderer (however, a mere *thief's* wife was spared)

4) [line 27] SHE'KAVSHUHA KARKOM - which came under siege
5) [line 30] BOLESHES - marauding troops who come to pillage
6) [line 33] SHE'EIN PENAI L'NASECH - there is no time for them to pour any wine as a libation to Avodah Zarah

7) [line 38] ARAK - escaped
8) [line 40] NAIMA - sleep
9) [line 41] D'MEHADER LAH L'MASA - they surrounded the city
10) [line 41] SHUSHILTA V'CHALBA V'GAVZA V'AVZA - with chains, dogs, geese, and obstacles which preclude escape

11) [line 46] MACHBU'AH - a hiding place


12) [line 2] D'AGAR LEI CHAMRA L'CHAVREI - that hired out a donkey to his friend
13) [line 3] B'ORCHA D'NAHAR PEKOD - by the way of the Pekod River

The general rule in monetary claims is that the burden of proof rests with the one who wishes to extract payment or other items of value from the other person. Hence, when there is a doubt, all money remains with the one who has possession.

22) [line 50] HA'MA'ON HA'ZEH - I vow in the name of the One who dwells in this dwelling (the Beis ha'Mikdash)
