(a) From where does Rav Yehudah Amar Rav learn that the work that a girl
produces belongs to her father?
From where do we learn that a father has the right to ...
(b) We conclude that this D'rashah is needed for a Na'arah, but that a
Ketanah is obvious.
On what grounds is it obvious that the work of a
Ketanah belongs to her father?
(c) We try to prove that a girl's work belongs to her father, because if it
did not, how could he hand her over to get married?
How do we prove it
(d) We reject this proof however, on the grounds that the father could
always be made to reimburse her for her losses.
On what other two grounds
do we reject the proof?
- ... nullify his daughter's vows?
- ... receive his daughter's Get?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah that the girl's father may not eat the Peiros,
whereas her husband may.

(b) What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah say in a Beraisa?
(c) On what grounds does he argue with the Rabbanan?

that the girl's father died before the Chupah?
(c) Why do we go out of our way to establish the first Beraisa like Rebbi
Elazar ben Azaryah?
(a) We have already learned that Chazal instituted the dowry against her
burial (K'suvasah Tachas K'vurasah).
Against what did they institute ...
(b) Why did the Tana find it necessary to write 'Lefichach, Ba'al Ochel
Peiros'? What might we otherwise have thought should be done with them?

(c) On what basis did they choose the option that they did rather the
(d) Why did they institute sustenance against her work and the use of her
Nechsei mi'Lug against her release from captivity, and not vice-versa?
(a) The Tana of the Beraisa, who explains that (in the Pasuk in Mishpatim
[concerning the 'marriage' of a master with his Jewish maidservant])
"She'erah, K'susah ve'Onasah Lo Yigra"), "She'erah" means sustenance.
