REVIEW QUESTIONS ON GEMARA AND RASHI
prepared by Rabbi Eliezer Chrysler
Kollel Iyun Hadaf, Jerusalem
Previous daf Kesuvos 44
(a) What does Rav Nachman say about a case where someone produces two of
the same documents with two different dates?
(b) What do we initially suggest when faced with Rav Huna, who said above
that a woman who produces two Kesuvos, one of two hundred Zuz and one of
three, may claim with whichever one she chooses?
(c) We reconcile the two opinions however, by citing Rav Papa.
to Rav Papa, in which case does Rav Nachman agree that the owner of the
document may claim with whichever document he pleases? How does that tie up
with Rav Huna's statement?
(d) If one of the documents is described as a sale and the other, as a gift,
the second one will not cancel the first, either. The first document
always has the advantage of authorizing the claimant to claim from earlier
What would be the advantage of the second document if the first
one is described as ...
- ... a sale and the second one as a gift?
- ... a gift and the second one as a sale?
(a) In which case then, *does* the second document negate the first one?
(b) According to Rafram, the reason for this is because writing a second
document that is no different than the first is tantamount to admitting that
the first one was forged.
What does Rav Acha say?
(c) One of the ramifications of the Machlokes between Rafram and Rav Acha is
that according to the former, the witnesses are Pasul, too (see Tosfos Rid),
whereas, according to Rav Acha, they are not.
What are the other two?
(a) Concluding the Sugya that we began above (on 43b), Rav Yehudah Amar
Shmuel cites Rebbi Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon, who holds that the father may
claim the Manah or the Masayim already from the Eirusin and the Tosefes from
What do the Chachamim say?
(b) What is the Halachah?
(a) If a Giyores who converted (even before she turned three) together with
her mother, became betrothed and committed adultery, what punishment will
she receive? How do we learn this from the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei "Ki As'sah
(b) What do 'Pesach Beis Avihah' and 'Me'ah Sela' have in common in
connection with her?
(c) Which of the above three Halachos will be affected if the same girl was
conceived before her mother's conversion but born after it?
(d) What will be the Din if she was both conceived and born after her mother
(a) The Torah writes that a Na'arah ha'Me'urasah should be stoned "el Pesach
Answers to questions
What happens to her if she has no father or if her father
does not own a house?
(b) Then why does the Torah write "el Pesach Beis Avihah"?
(a) Which of the Dinim in our Mishnah does Resh Lakish learn from the Pasuk
in Ki Seitzei "u'S'kaluhah Kol Anshei Irah ba'Avanim *va'Meisah*"?
(b) Then why does her husband not also receive Malkos and pay a hundred
Shekalim for speaking Lashon ha'Ra?
(c) How do we know that the Pasuk comes to include a girl who was ...
- ... only born bi'Kedushah and not one who was conceived bi'Kedushah as well?
- ... born bi'Kedushah, and not one who was born and conceived she'Lo bi'Kedushah?
(a) What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Chanina learn from the Pasuk (written in
connection with a Motzi Shem Ra) "ve'Nasnu *la'Avi* ha'Na'arah"?
(b) Rebbi Yossi ha'G'lili in a Beraisa learns from the Pasuk in Mishpatim
(written in connection with a Mefateh) "ve'Im Ma'ein Yema'ein Avihah",
'le'Rabos Yesomah li'K'nas'.
How will Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Chanina explain
(c) Rava disagrees with Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Chanina.
How does he
extrapolate that a Yesomah is entitled to K'nas from the Beraisa cited by
Ami "Besulas Yisrael" 've'Lo Besulas Geirim'?
(d) How do we know that a Besulas Geirim is an orphan?
(a) On what grounds does Rav Ada bar Ahavah take for granted that a man
would not be Chayav for being Motzi Shem Ra on his wife who is a Ketanah?
Why could the Pasuk not possibly be talking about a Ketanah?
Answers to questions
(b) So what does Resh Lakish learn from the fact that "Na'arah" is written
there with a 'Hey'?
