Previous daf

Yevamos 101

1) [line 8] NE'EMAR BERACHAH L'MATAH - that is, a curse was written below, regarding people

2) [line 16] MISHUM PEGAM MISHPACHAH - because of the taint of the family (so that people should not say that their family produced a Chalal)


3) [line 24] CHALITZAH
(a) If a married man dies childless, his widow may not marry whomever she pleases. She first must undergo Yibum (levirate marriage, that is, she must marry her dead husband's brother), as the Torah states in Devarim 25:5-10. If the deceased had more than one brother, there is a preference for the oldest brother to perform Yibum (Yevamos 24a).
(b) If the brother chooses not to marry her, he must perform Chalitzah (a procedure in Beis Din that absolves her of the Mitzvah of Yibum). He appears before a Beis Din of three and states, "I do not want to marry her," after which his sister-in-law approaches him before the elders, takes off his right sandal and spits in front of him. She then declares, "This is what shall be done to the man who will not build up a family for his brother," and she is then free to marry whomever she wants.
(c) The nebulous state of the widow until a brother performs with her Yibum or Chalitzah is termed "Zikah". If she accepts Kidushin from someone during this period, despite the fact that it is forbidden to do so, the Amora'im argue as to whether the Kidushin is legally binding or not (Yevamos 92b).

4) [line 25] HEDYOTOS - ordinary people
5) [line 26] ANPILIYA - (O.F. chalcon) a sock or slipper. The Gemara (Daf 102b) concludes that this Anpiliya is made out of material, as opposed to leather

6) [line 27] EKEV - (a) (O.F. sole) sole (RASHI); (b) a piece of leather, part of the sandal, that wraps around the back of the foot at the ankle (ME'IRI)

7) [line 28] ARKUVAH - knee
8) [line 32] GADOL SHE'HU YACHOL LA'HALOCH BO - a shoe or sandal that is too large for the foot of the Yavam, yet he can nevertheless walk in it

9) [line 33] CHOFEH - covers
10) [line 36] L'HAKROS - to read out the words of the verses that the Yevamah and Yavam must say

11) [last line] MENUKIM B'TZEDEK - (lit. cleansed with justice) totally just


12) [line 1] "KULACH YAFAH RA'AYASI, KULACH YAFAH U'MUM EIN BACH." - "You are all beautiful, my love, you are all beautiful; there is no blemish in you." (Shir ha'Shirim 4:7)

13) [line 3] ROKA D'KA NAFIK MI'PUMA D'YEVAMAH - spit as it goes forth from the mouth of the Yevamah

19) [line 38] TA, SAK L'ZIRZA D'KANEI - come and go up to [sit upon] the bundle of reeds (the place designated for the performance of a case of Chalitzah)
