Ask A Question on the daf

Previous daf

Nedarim 21

1) [line 6] SHE'LO NITNAH NEZIRUS ELA L'HAFLA'AH - the laws of Nezirus only apply to a distinct utterance (where there is no question or doubt)

2) [line 13] TIPAS TZONEN - a drop of cold water
3) [line 16] MISHTA'EI INISH HACHI - people speak like this


(a) When an adult makes a Neder (or designates Chalah, Terumah or Kodshim) or Nezirus, and he regrets having made the Neder, he may have it revoked by a Beis Din of three (if they are not outstanding authorities) or a Yachid Mumcheh (an outstanding authority). The general method used is that Beis Din investigates whether the person would not have made the Neder in the first place had he been aware of a particular fact. This investigation provides the person with a "Pesach" (opening) with which the Beis Din can revoke the Neder.
(b) If there are no facts that the person who made the Neder was not aware of but, nevertheless, he now regrets making the Neder, there is a Machlokes Tana'im as to whether the fact that the person regrets having made the Neder ("Charatah") is enough of a Pesach to allow the Neder to be annulled. The Halachah follows the opinion that Charatah is a valid Pesach in and of itself.

5) [line 16] MI NADART? - would you have made the Neder?
6) [line 24] KEDU TAHIS - Do you now regret having ever made a Neder?
7) [line 25] BA'IS NEDOR? - Do you desire your Neder; i.e. are you happy that you made a Neder but want to cancel it for the future?

8) [line 26] ILU LO MARGEZIN LI - if certain people would not have angered me
9) [line 26] TEHEI K'VA'IS - it shall be as you desire; i.e. the Neder is annulled
10) [line 27] D'ADARTAH LI'VERATAH - who forbade her daughter with a Neder from having benefit from her or [from some of] her properties

11) [last line] MEGIRASICH- your neighbors
