Ask A Question on the daf

Previous daf

Kesuvos 97

1) [line 25] HADRANISA - a swindler, a woman who sells property and afterwards reclaims it on a mortgage held by herself

2) [line 33] BATZORTA - (lit. a famine) a sudden rise in prices due to a drastic decrease in the supply of foodstuffs

3) [line 34] APADNAIHU - their houses (lit. their mansions)
4) [line 37] ARBA B'IKULEI HAVAH - the boat [with the wheat] was [delayed] (a) in the coves and inlets of the river [at the river's edge] (ARUCH); (b) [because of the sudden rise in the water level, and was] making its way through a meandrous route (RASHI)

5) [line 39] NIMTZEISA MACHSHILAN LE'ASID LAVO - the result will be that you will create an obstacle for the people in the future [because they will be afraid to buy the properties]


6) [line 2] MISHUM CHINA - (a) in order for men to find grace [in the eyes of women so that the women will agree to marry them] (RASHI); (b) [the Rabanan decreed that an Arusah who becomes a widow can sell property without Beis Din in order to collect her Kesuvah] i. in order for women to agree to serve their husbands and to find favor in the eyes of their husbands (ARUCH, citing the Rabbis of Magenza); ii. since she only collects the main amount of the Kesuvah (Maneh or Masayim) and not the Tosefes and she is in desperate need of the money in order to find favor in the eyes of prospective grooms (ARUCH, citing RABEINU CHANANEL)

*7*) [line] SHE'YARASHTAH BITAH O ACHOSAH - that is, if we make the daughter or sister sell property through Beis Din (in order to collect the Kesuvah), they will think that even a *wife* can only collect her Kesuvah by selling property in Beis Din, and they will refrain from marrying due to the difficulty of collecting the Kesuvah in the eventuality of a divorce. (Based on Rashi)

8) [line 36] APOTIKI
An Apotiki is an object or a piece of land that is designated as a security for a debt, without being placed in the possession of the creditor.
