Kidushin 36

KIDUSHIN 36-40 - sponsored by a generous grant from an anonymous donor. Kollel Iyun Hadaf is indebted to him for his encouragement and support and prays that Hashem will repay him in kind.


(a) Abaye ascribes Isi ben Yehudah's Din (exempting women from 'bal Korchah' too) to a 'Gezeirah-Shavah'.
Which 'Gezeirah-Shavah'?

(b) Like before (re. 'bal Tashchis Zakan'), we suggest that perhaps the Torah only exempts women from 'bal Tetamei le'Meisim' ('Hifsik ha'Inyan'), and that the 'Gezeirah-Shavah' comes for something else.

(c) What do we then learn from "Korchah" "Korchah" ...
  1. ... Yisre'eilim from Kohanim?

  2. ... in Yeshayah "Zera Mere'im, Banim Mashchisim"?
  3. ... in Hoshei'a "ve'Hayah bi'Mekom Asher Ye'amer Lahem Lo Ami Atem, Ye'amer Lahem "B'nei Keil Chai"?
(a) What do Semichos, Tenufos, Hagashos and Kemitzos, Haktaros, Melikos, Kabalos and Haza'os have in common? In what regard does the Tana of our Mishnah list them here?

(b) What does the Tana mean by 'Hagashos'?

(c) Is the Tana referring to a Kohenes or a Yisre'eilis re. ...

  1. ... Semichos and Tenufos?
  2. ... Hagashos and Kemitzos, Haktaros, Melikos, Kabalos and Haza'os (See Tosfos DH 'ha'Semichos')?
(d) How does the Tana qualify 'Tenufos'?
(a) How does the Torah preclude women from most of the above 'Avodos'?

(b) One of the exceptions is Melikah.
From where do we learn that Kohanos may not perform Melikah?

(c) What do we learn from "ve'Hikrivu B'nei Aharon es ha'Dam"?
