Kesuvos 70

KESUVOS 70 - dedicated by Uri Wolfson and Naftali Wilk in honor of Rav Mordechai Rabin of Har Nof, a true beacon of Torah and Chesed.

1) [line 6] MEINACH NICHA LEI - it is acceptable to him [to furnish them with all of the provisions that they need]

2) [line 7] L'ZARUZINHU HU D'ASA - he intended to prompt them [to provide for themselves and to teach them moderation]

3) [line 8] PE'UTOS - children between the ages of six and nine years old (depending on their acumen) (SHULCHAN ARUCH Choshen Mishpat 235:1) (The Gemara Gitin 59a, when explaining the term "Pe'utos," brings three opinions as to whether it refers to the ages of six to seven, seven to eight or eight to nine, and concludes that these opinions do not argue; it all depends upon the child's acumen)

4) [line 10] APOTROPOS - (O.F. seneschal) steward, manager of the household (RASHI to Sukah 27a)

*****PEREK #7 HA'MADIR*****

5) [line 27] B'ANIYOS SHE'LO NASAN KITZVAH - regarding poor women, [the husband must divorce her and give her the value of her Kesuvah] if he did not limit [the time of the vow]


6) [line 9] BED'LO SAFKAH - when the amount that she earns from the work that she must do does not cover the cost of her food

7) [line 10] HADAR KUSHYAN L'DUCHTEI - our original question (from Amud Alef, "v'Cheivan d'Meshubad Lah, Heichi Matzi Madir Lah?") comes back again

8a) [line 11] DEVARIM GEDOLIM - basic needs
b) [line 12] DEVARIM KETANIM - unessential needs
9) [line 15] B'VEIS NASHA - in her father's household (before she got married)
10) [line 15] V'KA MEGALGELA BAHADEI - and she is willing to put up without them while she is married to him

11) [line 16] D'LO ADARTAN - that you did not prohibit me with a vow
12) [line 18] V'LO ZILA BAH MILSA - and it is not a disgrace for her

13) [line 22] HIGI'A ZEMAN V'LO NIS'U, OCHLOS MI'SHELO V'OCHLOS I'TERUMAH - [After Eirusin (betrothal), the Rabanan decreed that a virgin must be given twelve months to prepare her jewelry and her other needs for the wedding and a widow must be given thirty days. After this time, the groom must consummate the marriage through Nisu'in.] If the time for the Nisu'in came and they did not get married [because the groom delays the wedding, he is obligated to begin supporting his wife even though they are not yet married.] The Arusos eat (are provided for) from the grooms' possessions and eat Terumah (if the grooms are Kohanim) (Kesuvos 57a).

14) [line 25] SAVRAH V'KIBLAH - she thought [it over] and accepted [it]; she has committed herself

15) [line 26] MECHAVARTA KED'SHANINAN ME'IKARA - it is clearly correct (as we originally answered, i.e. one of the first two answers)

*16*) [line 32] SHE'AR ISURIM D'SHABBOS - that is, Melachos that are not done in order to save one's property from a fire.
