Previous daf Nazir 14
(a) After the She'eilah of 'Hareini Nazir le'Achar Esrim Yom, u'me'Achshav
Me'ah Yom', Rava goes on to ask 'Hareini Nazir le'Achar Esrim Yom,
u'me'Achshav Nazir le'Olam' (see Rosh), Mahu?
For the Sugya of Nezirus Shimshon, I have used the explanation of the Rosh.
What is the sequence of
these two She'eilos?
(b) Why might 'Nazir le'Olam' ...
(c) According to the first Tzad of the She'eilah, when will his hundred-day
Nezirus actually commence?
- ... not take effect immediately, even if 'Me'ah Yom' does?
- ... nevertheless begin immediately like 'Me'ah Yom?
(d) Others have the text 'N'zir Olam' (rather than 'Nazir le'Olam' - Tosfos
reverses the implications of the two phrases). Why might 'N'zir Olam' not
take effect immediately, even if 'Me'ah Yom' does? What is a 'N'zir Olam'?
(a) If someone undertakes Nezirus Shimshon after twenty days and S'tam
Nezirus immediately, why might the S'tam Nezirus not take effect
immediately, even if, in the previous case, a 'N'zir Olam' or a 'Nazir
(b) What problem does Nezirus Shimshon create vis-a-vis S'tam Nezirus
(c) What would then be the alternative to observing the first twenty days of
S'tam Nezirus and not being able to complete it?
(a) If someone declared 'Hareini ke'Moshe be'Shiv'ah ba'Adar' ...
Which of all the above She'eilos do we categorically resolve?
(b) What problem do we have with this (since we are apparently talking about
S'tam Nezirus - though it is unclear why Tosfos takes this for granted)?
- ... why might he be a Nazir?
- ... why might he not?
(a) We learned in our Mishnah 'Meni'ach es she'Lo u'Moneh shel B'no'.
According to Rebbi Yochanan, if he became Tamei during the term of Nezirus
for his son, he also demolishes his first term of Nezirus.
Answers to questions
What does Resh
(b) Rebbi Yochanan's reason is because he considers the two Nezirus to be
one long Nezirus.
Why is that?
(c) What would Rebbi Yochanan hold in the equivalent situation in the Reisha
of our Mishnah, where the Tana says 'Moneh es she'Lo, ve'Achar-Kach Moneh
(a) What will be the Din if a Nazir 'contracted' Tzara'as during his term of
Nezirus? Does the Tzara'as demolish the days of Nezirus that he already
counted (particularly bearing in mind that a Metzora is obligated to shave
before he becomes Tahor)?
(b) Rebbi Yochanan holds however, that, if that Nazir became Tamei whilst he
was a Metzora, he demolishes the days of Nezirus that he already counted.
Why is that?
(c) According to Resh Lakish, he does not, because, like he said in the
previous case, Tzara'as and Nezirus are two different issues.
Why do they
find it necessary to repeat their Machlokes (despite its similarity to the
previous case)? Why might we have thought had they only argued ...
- ... in the previous case, but not in this one?
- ... in this case, but not in the previous one?
(a) 'Nitma be'Yom Gidul Se'ar, Rav Omer, Eino Soser'.
What is 'Yom Gidul
(b) Why do we now speak about '*Yom* Gidul Se'ar', whereas before we spoke
about '*Yemei* Tzara'ato'?
(c) What is Rav's reason? Does this mean that Rav holds like Resh Lakish in
the previous case?
(d) Shmuel holds 'Soser'.
What is *his* reason? Does that mean that he
holds like Rebbi Yochanan in the previous case?
(a) According to Rav Chisda, everyone agrees that 'Im Kidesh Se'ar be'Dam,
Ein Lo Takanah'.
What does 'Im Kidesh Se'ar be'Dam' mean?
(b) How do we initially interpret 'Ein Lo Takanah'?
(c) This cannot go like Rebbi Eliezer.
Why not? What does Rebbi Eliezer
(a) Why does Rav Chisda not appear to go like the Rabbanan either?
(b) We therefore answer the Kashya by re-interpreting 'Ein Lo Takanah'.
What does Rav Chisda really mean? According to which Tana does he issue his
(a) What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Chanina say about a Nazir whose term of
Nezirus has terminated? What distinction does he make between whether he
becomes Tamei then or whether he shaves or drinks wine?
(b) Should he render himself Tamei, does he also demolish the days between
the termination of his Nezirus and the day that he brings his Korbanos?
(c) We initially learn Rav Chisda's Din from the Pasuk in Naso "*Kol Yemei*
What do we then ask on that from the Pasuk there ...
(d) What do we ultimately learn from the Pasuk "ve'Tamei Rosh Nizro"?
- ... "*Kol Yemei* Neder Nizro Ta'ar Lo Ya'avor al Rosho"?
- ... *Kol Yemei* Nizro, mi'Kol Asher Ye'aseh mi'Gefen ha'Yayin"?
(a) If the Nazir became Tamei after he brought his Korbanos, but before he
shaved, will he receive Malkos (according to the Rabbanan of Rebbi Eliezer)?
Answers to questions
(b) We repudiate Rav Chisda's statement however, from a Beraisa? What does
the Tana of the Beraisa say?
