Nedarim 7

1) [line 1] LEKET
"Leket" refers to individual (one or two) stalks that have fallen from the sickle or from the reaper's hand during the harvest. Such stalks may not be retrieved by the owner but must be left for the poor, as described in Vayikra (19:9-10), "v'Leket Ketzircha Lo Selaket...le'Ani vela'Ger Ta'azov Osam." - "Do not pick up the individual stalks that have fallen from the harvest ... you shall leave them (the gifts of Pe'ah, Leket, Olelos and Peret) for the poor and the stranger." If three stalks fall together, they are not considered Leket and may be retrieved by the owner.

2) [line 1] SHIKCHAH
If one or two bundles of grain were forgotten in the field when the other bundles were collected, they must be left for the poor, as described in Devarim (24:19).

3) [line 6] L'NAFKUSA B'ALMA - for normal expenditures
4) [line 7] DIBURA HU D'LO ASKEI - he did not complete his statement
5) [line 13] EIN HEKESH L'MECHETZAH - A Hekesh is one of the thirteen methods for extracting the Halachah from the verses of the Torah, in which two subjects that are mentioned in a verse are compared. If there are a few possible Halachos that the Hekesh teaches, we learn them all. We do not say that it teaches us only one or two of the Halachos (unless we have an explicit teaching that excludes a specific Halachah)

6) [line 20] YESH ZIMUN
If an area was designated or a building was built as a bathroom but not yet used as such, there is a difference of opinion as to whether the Zimun (intent) prevents a person from praying inside this place or not. The Halachah is that the intent is not Halachically binding, however it is Asur mid'Rabanan to pray there since this is considered an indignity to Keri'as Shema or Tefilah (SHULCHAN ARUCH Orach Chayim 83:2). A person who prays inside does not fulfill his obligation of prayer. It is permissible to pray outside within four Amos (ibid.), but there are those who argue (MISHNAH BERURAH 83:7).

7) [line 22] CHADA MIGO CHADA KAMIBAYA LEI - that is, he pondered this question in an "Im Timtzeh Lomar" ("Were you to say") format, as follows: Is Zimun for a Beis ha'Kisei Halachically binding? Were you to say that it is, is there a Yad or not?

8) [line 23] TIBA'I LEI - the problems stands unanswered (this is the equivalent of "Teiku" in other places in the Gemara)

9) [line 25] NEDINA MINACH - I am [prohibited] to you as a person who has been excommunicated

10) [last line] MESHAMTANA MINACH - I am [prohibited] to you as a person who has been banned (not as severe as excommunication)


11) [line 17] V'SHARA LAH L'ALTAR B'APAH - and he revoked the excommunication in her presence

12) [line 20] U'MEIFER L'ATZMO - and he may cancel his own excommunication [that he applied to himself]

13) [line 21] CHAVUSH - a prisoner
14) [line 22] MESHAMIS NAFSHEI B'REISHA, V'HADAR MESHAMES BAR BEI RAV - he excommunicated himself first, and then excommunicated the Torah scholar
