woman who declares 'Netulah Ani min ha'Yehudim'.
According to both texts, the answer is the same.
Does her Neder require
(b) We think at first, that a husband must be included in 'people', because
otherwise, it would fall under the category of Nidrei Inuy Nefesh, and her
husband would be able to annul it completely. Why is that? How are we
currently interpreting 'Netulah Ani min ha'Yehudim'?
(c) Why would we not have a problem if a husband would be included in
(d) According to other texts, we think that if a husband was not included in
'people', the Neder would not require Hafarah at all.
What is it?
(a) The Tana of our Mishnah permits a woman who forbade the Hana'ah of
others upon herself to collect Leket, Shikchah and Pei'ah, but not Ma'aser
What is Ma'aser Ani?
(b) What problem do we have with this from a Beraisa?
(c) Rav Yosef connects these two opinions to another Machlokes in a Mishnah
in D'mai. Rebbi Eliezer and the Rabbanan there both agree that one is
obligated to separate Ma'aser Rishon and to take Terumas Ma'aser from that.
What does one then do with ...
- ... the Terumas Ma'aser?
- ... the remainder of the Ma'aser Rishon?
(a) According to Rebbi Eliezer, the purchaser is not obligated to separate
Answers to questions
What do the Chachamim say?
(b) Rav Yosef suggests that they argue over whether Ma'aser Ani is 'Tovel'
What does he mean by that?
(c) How will this explain the Machlokes between our Mishnah, which forbids
the woman who made the Neder to eat Ma'aser Ani, and the Mishnah in D'mai,
which permits it?
(d) Is there any significance in the Lashon 'ka'Savar *S'feiko* Eino Tovel'?
Can we infer from there that Vaday Ma'aser Ani *is*?
(a) The Torah writes in Emor "ve'Lo Yechalelu es Kodshei B'nei Yisrael Asher
What do we learn from ...
(b) What is the logic behind the opinion that holds 'Ma'aser Ani Eino Tovel?
- ... "Asher Yarimu"?
- ... "ve'Lo Yechalelu"? What does this imply?
- ... the combination of the two D'rashos.
(c) Why, by the same token, do we have no problem with saying that Terumah
(d) What do others learn from the Gezeirah-Shavah "*Lo Suchal* Le'echol
*bi'She'arecha* ... " "ve'Achlu *bi'She'arecha* ve'Savei'u" (in connection
with Ma'aser Ani)?
(a) Abaye rejects Rav Yosef's explanation. According to him, both our
Mishnah [as well as the Chachamim] (which forbids the woman to eat Ma'aser
Ani) and the Beraisa [as well as Rebbi Eliezer] (which permits it) hold that
On what grounds then, does the Tana of the Beraisa (as well
as Rebbi Eliezer) permit the woman to eat it?
(b) What makes us so certain that the Am ha'Aretz separated Ma'aser Ani?
(c) Why can Abaye not say that both Tana'im agree that 'S'feiko Eino Tovel'?
(a) How does Rava correlate the Pasuk in Ki Savo "ve'Nasata la'Levi, la'Ger

our Mishnah (which forbids the woman to eat Ma'aser Ani) and the Beraisa
(which permits it)?
(a) We can infer from 'the Reisha' of our Mishnah 'Kohanim u'Levi'im Nehenim
Li, Yitlu al Korcho' that Tovas Hana'ah is not considered Mamon.
How have we now resolved the discrepancy between the 'Reisha' of our
Mishnah, and the 'Seifa'?
discrepancy are we faced with from the Seifa?
(b) How do we resolve it?
(c) According to Rebbi in a Beraisa, someone who steals his friend's Tevel
and eats it, is obligated to pay for everything that he ate.
that part of what he ate is Chulin, and part Ma'asros, what exactly does
(d) What does Rebbi Yossi b'Rebbi Yehudah say?
