Previous daf Kidushin 78
KIDUSHIN 77-80 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi
publications for these Dafim for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.
(a) According to Rav Yehudah, a Kohen Gadol who marries an Almanah,
transgresses two La'avin.
(b) Is this Chidush confined to a Kohen Gadol and an Almanah?
(c) Why does Rav Yehudah not include the La'av of "ve'Lo Yechalel Zar'o", to
make it three?
(d) How will Rav Yehudah then ...
- ... interpret the Beraisa 'Almanah u'Gerushah Lokeh Mishum Sh'nei Sheimos'?
- ... amend the Seifa 'Gerushah va'Chalutzah, Eino Chayav Ela Mishum Achas'?
(a) If, as we just explained, Chalutzah is only mi'de'Rabbanan, how will we
then explain the Beraisa, which learns Chalutzah from the extra 'Vav' in
"*ve'Ishah* Gerushah me'Iyshah"?
(b) According to Abaye, a Kohen Gadol receives Malkos for the Kidushin of an
Almanah, as well as for the Bi'ah.
What does Rava say? On what grounds
does he disagree with Abaye?
(c) What does ...
(d) And what do they both agree with re. to a Machzir Gerushaso who was
Bo'el without Kidushin?
- ... Abaye extrapolate from the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei "Lo Yuchal Ba'alah ha'Rishon ... Lashuv Lekachtah Lih'yos Lo le'Ishah"?
- ... Rava extrapolate from the fact that the Torah writes by a Kohen Gadol and an Almanah "ve'Lo Yechalel Zar'o be'Amav"?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah 'Rebbi Yehudah says 'bas Ger Zachar ke'bas
How does the Beraisa attempt to support Rebbi Yehudah with
a 'Kal va'Chomer'?
(b) We query the 'Kal va'Chomer' however, with the Pircha that a Chalal, on
the other hand, was formed through sin, whereas a Ger was not. How do we
counter this Pircha? Which other case do we know of, where the daughter is a
Chalalah even though the parents were not formed through a sin?
(c) So we learn 'bas Ger Zachar' from the combination ('Tzad ha'Shaveh') of
Chalal and Kohen Gadol be'Almanah, which are both exceptions.
advantage does Chalal have over a Kohen Gadol and an Almanah?
(d) What Pircha do we ask that refutes the 'Tzad ha'Shaveh'? What advantage
does Ger have over both Chalal and Kohen Gadol be'Almanah?
(a) What Pircha do we ask on the Limud from a Mitzri Rishon and a Mitzris
Rishonah (which replaces Kohen Gadol be'Almanah), who are neither formed
through sin nor do they commit one?
(b) So from where does Rebbi Yehudah finally learn 'bas Ger Zachar ke'bas
(c) On what grounds do we refute the Pircha 'Mah le'ha'Tzad ha'Shaveh
she'Bahen, she'Kein Poslin be'Bi'asan (Tomar be'Ger, she'Eino Posel
(d) And on what grounds do Rebbi Eliezer ben Ya'akov and Rebbi Yossi
disagree with Rebbi Yehudah's 'Mah ha'Tzad'? How can they validate the
daughter of a Ger (see Rashi in our Mishnah and Tosfos here DH 'Ger')?
(a) Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai learns from the Pasuk in Matos "ve'Chol ha'Taf
ba'Nashim Hachayu Lachem" that a Giyores under the age of three is
permitted. He extrapolates it by virtue of the person that went to war with
them (and who is incorporated in "Lachem")? To whom does this refer?
Answers to questions
(b) How do the Rabbanan counter Rebbi Shimon's proof? How do they interpret
(c) In fact, we conclude that the four Tana'im in our Mishnah all derive
their respective opinions from the same Pasuk in Yechezkel "Almanah
u'Gerushah Lo Yikachu ... Ki Im Besulos mi'Zera Beis Yisrael".
How will we
interpret "mi'Zera Beis Yisrael", according to ...
- ... Rebbi Yehudah ('bas Ger Zachar ... ')?
- ... Rebbi Eliezer ben Ya'akov ('Yisrael she'Nasa Giyores, Bito Kesherah li'Kehunah')?
- ... Rebbi Yossi ('Af Ger she'Nasa Giyores ... ')?
- ... Rebbi Shimon?
(a) What was Rav Nachman bar Yitzchak referring to when he asked Rava about
an apparent discrepancy between the first half of the above-mentioned Pasuk
in Yechezkel and the second half (which reads "ve'ha'Almanah Asher Tih'yeh
Almanah mi'Kohen Yikachu")?
(b) What was Rava's reply?
(c) How did Rava prove his point from the Pasuk in Shmuel "ve'Ner Elokim
Terem Yichbeh, u'Sh'muel Shochev be'Heichal Hashem"? Where *did* Shmuel
(a) What does the Navi really mean when he writes "ve'Almanah Asher Tih'yeh
Almanah mi'Kohen Yikachu" (implying that one Kohen is forbidden to marry the
Almanah of another Kohen)?
(b) This is also the opinion of the Tana Kama in a Beraisa, though Rebbi
What does Rebbi Yehudah mean when he says 'min
ha'Masi'in li'Kehunah Yikachu'?
(c) What did he say above which conforms with this statement?
(d) With which statement of Raban Shimon ben Gamliel must Rebbi Yehudah also
(a) Like which of the Tana'im in our Mishnah ...
(b) Rav Nachman quoting Rav Huna, makes a similar statement.

What did he
say about a Kohen who ...
- ... came to inquire about the Halachah?
- ... actually married the daughter of a Ger and a Giyores?
(a) The Tana of our Mishnah states that if someone declares his son to be a
Mamzer he is not believed.
Why is that?
(b) If both parents declare that the fetus that the mother is carrying is a
Mamzer, are they believed?

(d) What does Rebbi Yehudah say?

(a) From where do we know that a father is believed to declare his son a
Bechor so that he should inherit a double portion?
(b) What does Rebbi Yehudah learn from the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei "Ki Im
ha'Bechor ben ha'Senu'ah *Yakir*"?
(c) What do the Rabbanan learn from there?
(d) What does 'be'Tzarich Hekeira' mean?
(a) According to Rebbi Meir, we need "Yakir" with re. to property that the
father received when he was a Goses.
What does Rebbi Meir hold that makes
it necessary for us to say this?
(b) Why does Rebbi Meir concede that a Pasuk is required in the latter case?
(c) Why did we not answer that the property fell to the father after his
(a) What will be the Din if, after asking a Sheli'ach to betroth his
daughter on his behalf, he went himself and betrothed her?
Answers to questions
(b) What if they do not know which transaction took place first?
(c) What other option do they have?
