- ... Rebbi Yossi and Raban Shimon ben Gamliel ('Kol sha'Atah Nosei es Bito, Atah Nosei Almenaso; ve'Chol she'Ein Ata Nosei Bito ... ')? Whose son is Pasul, though his daughter is not?
(c) From where do we learn that a Kohen Gadol renders an Almanah a Chalalah
with his Bi'ah (even though the Pasuk "ve'Lo Yechalel Zar'o" is referring to

become a Chalalah through the Bi'ah of one of the Pesulim.
What is an
(b) On what grounds does Rav Chisda say this?
(c) This opinion is not however, unanymous.
What is the reason of Rebbi
Yehoshua and Rebbi Yehudah ben Beseirah in a Mishnah in Iduyos, who declare
an Almanas Iysah Kasher?
(a) 'Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Halachah ke'Rebbi Eliezer' (who differentiates
between Vada'an be'Vada'an and Vada'an bi'S'feikan).
Why was Shmuel
express surprise when Rav Yehudah told him that this is what Rav had ruled?
(b) Elsewhere, Rav rules that if an Arusah became pregnant, Rav declares the
child a Shesuki.
What does Shmuel say?
(c) What are ...
(d) How does this Machlokes now appear to clash with the previous one?
- ... their respective reasons?
- ... the ramifications of their Machlokes?
(a) How do we initially amend the second Machlokes to conform with the
(b) Having presented their Machlokes in the case of a Shesuki who is born to
(c) Alternatively, we reconcile their second Machokes with the first, even
without amending theis opinions, but by reinterpretating what they say. In
the case of Arusah she'Ibrah, what does Rav mean when he says 'ha'V'lad
- ... an unmarried woman, why do they see fit to repeat it in the case of an Arusah who became pregnant?
- ... an Arusah who became pregnant, why do they see fit to repeat it in the case of an unmarried woman?
(d) Why can we not interpret Shmuel ('ha'V'lad Shesuki') to mean ...
- ... 'de'Asur be'Bas Yisrael'?
- ... 'she'Meshaskin Oso mi'Din Kehunah' (assuming the Arus to be a Kohen)?
- ... 'she'Meshaskin Oso mi'Nechsei Aviv'?
(a) We nevertheless do adopt the final suggestion ('she'Meshaskin Oso
How do we eliminate the problem 'Mi Yad'inan Avuhah
(b) How else might we interpret 'Shesuki'?
(c) But is this not the opinion of Raban Gamliel and Rebbi Eliezer in the
Mishnah is Kesuvos ('Haysah Me'uberes ... Ish P'loni ve'Kohen Hu'), like
whom Rav Yehudah Amar Shmuel has already ruled? So why does he need to
repeat that ruling here?
(a) What does Rebbi Elazar in a Beraisa rule re. a Kuti who married a Kutis?
Answers to questions
(b) What does the Tana of another Beraisa say about a Ger after ten
generations? Why should his Din differ from that of a Ger during the first
(c) What does Yesh Omrim say?
(d) On what grounds does Abaye refute Rav Yosef's suggestion that the
Chachamim gave a Kuti and a Kutis the same Din as a Ger after ten
(a) Rav Dimi Amar Rebbi Elazar (ben P'das) established Rebbi Elazar (ben
Shamua)'s Din ('Kuti Lo Yisa Kutis') - like Rebbi Yishmael. How does Rebbi
Yishmael categorize the Kutim?
(b) And Rebbi Yishmael in turn, holds like Rebbi Akiva.
How does Rebbi
Akiva describe the status of the child of an Akum or Eved who had relations
with a bas Yisrael?
(c) What problem do we have with Rav Dimi's latter statement? What did Rebbi
Yochanan Amar Rebbi Yishmael say about an Akum or Eved who had relations
with a Kohenes, a Leviyah or a bas Yisrael?
(d) How do we therefore attempt to explain Rebbi Elazar (ben P'das) without
establishing Rebbi Yishmael like Rebbi Akiva?
(a) Beis Shamai permit a Tzaras Ervah to perform Yibum.
What do Beis
(b) What Din do the children born to those who practice like ...
(c) This latter ruling is part of a statement of Rebbi Elazar (ben P'das).
- ... Beis Shamai have, according to Beis Hillel?
- ... Beis Hillel have, according to Beis Shamai?
What is the gist of his statement? Who is a Mamzer according to him?
(d) How does this statement refute our previous contention, equating Rebbi
Elazar with Rebbi Akiva?

who lists three different opinions re. the Kutim.
Answers to questions
Rebbi Yishmael considers
them Geirei Arayos, as we explained earlier.
In that case, who were the
Kohanim who mixed with them?
(b) How does Rebbi Yishmael interpret "Vaya'as Lahem *Miktzosam* Kohanei
(c) Rebbi Akiva disagrees with Rebbi Yishmael's interpretation.
(d) On what grounds did the Chachamim then declare their children Mamzeirim
according to Rebbi Akiva? How does this render them Mamzeirim, seeing as a
Yevamah le'Shuk is no more than a La'av?
- ... categorize the Kutim?
- ... define the Kohanei Bamos who mixed with them? How does he translate "Miktzosam"?
