Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Nazir 28
1) A SIN-OFFERING CANNOT BE CHANGED (cont. from previous Daf)
(a) Answer: "His sacrifice" - a man is Yotzei with his own
sacrifice, and not with the sacrifice of his father.
2) UNTIL WHEN CAN A HUSBAND ANNUL HIS WIFE'S NEZIRUS
(b) Suggestion: Perhaps he is not Yotzei with money that his
father separated, even for sins of the same severity, but
he is Yotzei with an animal he separated for himself,
even for sins of different severity!
(c) Rejection: "His sacrifice for his sin" - his sacrifice
must be for the sake of his sin (that it was originally
(d) Suggestion: Perhaps he is not Yotzei with an animal he
separated for himself, even for sins of the same
severity, for if he separated a sacrifice for eating
Chelev and offered it for eating blood or vice-versa, he
did not transgress Me'ilah (if unaware of his mistake)
and did not get atonement.
1. But he is Yotzei with money he separated for
himself, even for sins of different severity, for if
he separated money for a sacrifice for eating Chelev
and offered it for eating blood or vice-versa, he
transgresses Me'ilah (if unaware of his mistake) and
(e) Rejection: "For his sin" - his sacrifice must be for the
sake of his sin.
(f) (Summation of Rava's question): The Beraisa teaches that
a Nazir cannot bring an animal that his father separated
for the father's Nezirus (i.e because it is considered
1. Suggestion: The Beraisa speaks even about a
(g) Answer: No, the Beraisa speaks only of an unblemished
(h) Question: But if a blemished animal is considered as
unspecified, why did it say that he can bring sacrifices
from money his father separated - let it teach the case
of a blemished animal!
(i) Answer: It does! The Kedushah of a blemished animal is
its value (it stands to be redeemed) - when the Mishnah
teaches about money, a blemished animal is included!
(a) (Mishnah): A husband cannot annul the Nezirus of his wife
after the blood of 1 of her sacrifices was thrown on the
(b) R. Akiva says, once 1 sacrifice was slaughtered, he
cannot annul it;
1. This applies when she shaves (i.e. and brings
sacrifices upon fulfillment of Nezirus) in Taharah;
when she shaves in Tumah, he can annul it, for he
can say that he does not want her to become
repulsive (by being a Nezirah again).
(c) R. Meir says, even when she shaves in Taharah, he can
annul it, for he can say that he does not want her to
shave her hair.
(d) (Gemara): Our Mishnah is unlike R. Eliezer, who says that
the prohibitions of Nezirus are in effect until he shaves
1. If the Mishnah were as R. Eliezer, since she cannot
drink wine until she shaves, an element of revulsion
remains, and he would be allowed to annul the
3) IMPOSING NEZIRUS ON A SON
2. Our Tana holds, once the blood is thrown, she may
drink wine, and there are no grounds for annulment.
(e) Question (R. Zeira): We should be able to throw the
blood, intending to be as a different sacrifice, and the
meat should become permitted!
3. R. Akiva holds, once an animal was slaughtered, he
cannot annul the Nezirus, for this would cause the
sacrifice to be lost (disqualified).
1. (Beraisa): The lambs (of the public Shelamim) of
Shavu'os that were slaughtered with intent for a
different sacrifice, or were slaughtered before or
after Shavu'os - we may throw the blood, and the
meat may be eaten;
(f) Answer: If the burnt-offering or Shelamim was slaughtered
- indeed, the blood may be thrown (*not* intending for a
sacrifice of Nezirus), and the sacrifice is not lost!
i. If it was Shabbos, the blood should not be
thrown; if it was thrown, it makes the
sacrifice valid, permitting the appropriate
parts to be burned on the Altar at night.
1. The case is, the sin-offering was slaughtered first.
(g) (Mishnah): This applies when she shaves in Taharah; when
she shaves in Tumah, he can annul it, for he can say that
he does not want her to become repulsive;
2. (Mishnah): If a Nazir shaved his hair after throwing
the blood of any of the 3 sacrifices, he was Yotzei.
1. R. Meir says, even when she shaves in Taharah, he
can annul it, for he can say that he does not want
her to shave her hair.
(h) The 1st Tana says this is not grounds to annul the
Nezirus - she can wear a wig!
1. R. Meir holds, the husband is repulsed that his wife
should wear someone else's hair.
(a) (Mishnah): A father can impose Nezirus on his son, but
not a mother;
1. If the son shaved or protested, or relatives shaved
him or protested (the Nezirus is annulled);
(b) (Gemara) Question: Why can a father impose on his son and
not a mother?
i. If an animal was specified for 1 of the
sacrifices - if for the sin-offering, it must
die; if for the burnt-offering, it is offered
as a burnt-offering; if for Shelamim, it is
offered as a Shelamim, without bread, and may
only be eaten for 1 day.
ii. If money was designated for the sacrifices but
not specified for which, it goes to Nedavah;
iii. If money was specified: money for the
sin-offering goes to the Dead Sea, one may not
benefit from it, but if one did, he did not
iv. Money for the burnt-offering is used to be a
burnt-offering, Me'ilah applies to this money;
v. Money for the Shelamim is used for a Shelamim;
it may only be eaten for 1 day, and is brought
(c) Answer #1 (R. Yochanan): The whole law is a tradition
from Moshe from Mount Sinai (we do not need reasons).
