(c) What problem does Rebbi Akiva have with Rebbi Yishmael's opinion?
(d) Rebbi Yochanan explains that Rebbi Yishmael Darshened the Torah like his
Rebbi Nechunyah ben Hakaneh in the form of 'K'lal u'P'rat U'K'lal'.
did Rebbi Akiva, following *his* Rebbe, Darshen it? What was the name of his
(a) Rebbi Akiva Darshened 'Ribuy Mi'ut ve'Ribuy'. "O Nefesh Ki Sishava",
Ribah; "Lehara O Leheitiv", Mi'at; "Le'chol Asher Yevatei ha'Adam", Chazar
What do we learn from the Mi'ut?
(b) And what does Rebbi Yishmael learn from ...
(c) In what regard does Rebbi Yitzchak (based on "Lehara O Leheitiv")
connect Shevu'as Bituy to ''Lo Yachel Devaro" (of Nedarim)? Which Kashya on
Rebbi Yishmael does he answer with this?
- ... "Le'chol Asher Yevatei ha'Adam" (which he considers a 'K'lal')?
- ... "Lehara O Leheitiv" (which he considers a 'P'rat')?
(d) With which La'av does "Lehara O Leheitiv" not go so well?
(e) Rav Yitzchak bar Avin answers the Kashya 'Eipuch' by quoting the Pasuk
"O Nefesh Ki Sishava Levatei bi'Sefasayim".
What does he learn from the
fact that "Ki Sishava" precedes "Levatei"?
(a) What does the Beraisa learn from the Pasuk "le'Chol Asher Yevatei
(b) We illustrate this with the story of Rav Kahana and Rav Asi.

(a) Rav Yosef disagreed with the B'nei Eretz Yisrael.
Answers to questions
What did he say?
What case of 'Cheifetz B'li Shevu'ah did he present?
(b) Abaye asked Rav Yosef that it is considered a He'elam Shevu'ah, because
the Korban comes for what he is holding in his hand, or for the bread that
he ate, which is a He'elam Shevu'ah.
What did Rav Yosef reply?
(c) Rava asked Rav Nachman what the Din would be if someone forgot both the
Cheifetz and the Shevu'ah.
What did he retort when Rav Nachman replied
'Harei He'elam Shevu'ah be'Yado ve'Chayav'?
(d) And what did Ravina retort when Rav Ashi suggested that we should check
and see what would have caused him to desist, the knowledge of the Cheifetz
or the knowledge of the Shevu'ah?
(e) So what is the outcome of Rava's She'eilah?
(a) Based on the current Beraisa, what problem does Rava have with Shigegas
Bituy Shevu'ah le'she'Avar (according to Rebbi Akiva)?
(b) Why did he not have the same problem with 'le'Haba'?
(c) Rav Nachman answered Rava by establishing the Beraisa like Munbaz with
regard to Shigegas Shabbos.
What did he say there?
(d) Why might our Beraisa even hold like the Rabbanan? What makes Shevu'as
(a) Ravina asked Rava what the Din will be if someone makes a Shevu'ah
forbidding a loaf on himself, and in a moment of starvation, he forgot the
Shevu'ah and ate it, whether he is Chayav a Korban or not.
What did Rava
reply? Why was the answer obvious?
(b) So Ravina amended the She'eilah to a case where he was very hungry and
would have eaten the loaf anyway (even though his life was not in danger).
What was Rava's reply, based on the Mishnah in Hori'os?
(a) What does Shmuel learn from the Pasuk "Levatei bi'Sefasayim"?
(b) What does the Beraisa learn from the Pasuk "le'Chol Asher Yevatei
(c) How does Rav Sheishes reconcile this with the Reisha ''bi'Sefasayim",
've'Lo be'Leiv'? How does he interpret ...
(d) Shmuel explains the Beraisa differently.
- ... the Reisha?
- ... the Seifa?
If, according to him, the
Reisha means ''bi'Sefasayim", 've'Lo she'Gamar be'Libo Lehotzi Pas Chitin,
ve'Hotzi Pas Se'orin' (meaning that his Shevu'ah must conform with his
intentions), what does the Seifa mean?
(a) Following the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei (in connection with a Neder to bring a
Korban) "Motzei Sefasecha Tishmor ve'Asisa", what does a second Beraisa
learn from the Pasuk in Vayakhel (in connection with the donations for the
Mishkan) "Kol Nediv Leiv"?
Answers to questions

verbalized, according to those who hold ...
