Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Yevamos 57
YEVAMOS 55-60 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi
publications for these Dafim for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.
1) CAN A WOMAN EAT TERUMAH IF SHE IS FORBIDDEN TO HER HUSBAND?
(a) Question: There is no necessity to say this!
2) A PETZU'A DAKA MARRIED TO A DAUGHTER OF CONVERTS
1. R. Elazar and R. Shimon only said there that she
eats, because he can cause other women to eat
Terumah - but here, a Petzu'a Daka cannot permit any
woman to eat!
(b) Answer #1 (Abaye): Here also, a Petzu'a Daka permits his
wife to eat, if he married her before becoming a Petzu'a
Daka, and did not have relations with her after becoming
a Petzu'a Daka.
i. If you will say that he can permit a daughter
of converts to eat - R. Yochanan asked R.
Oshiya this question, and he never settled it!
(c) Answer #2 (Rava): He permits his Kana'ani slaves to eat.
1. Abaye did not answer as Rava - we learn marriage
laws from marriage laws, not from laws of slaves.
2. Rava did not learn as Abaye - that case is
different, because she already ate.
i. Abaye says that the fact that she already ate
ii. If you will not say this - a Bas Yisrael
widowed from a Kohen should continue to eat,
because she already ate!
iii. Rava holds, there is different, since his
acquisitions of her lapses when he dies - here,
she is still married to the Petzu'a Daka!
(a) Question (R. Yochanan): A daughter of converts that is
married to a Petzu'a Daka - may she eat Terumah?
1. R. Oshiya was silent.
(b) Later, a great man came and asked a different matter, and
R. Oshiya settled the 1st question.
(c) Question: Who was this great man?
(d) Answer: Reish Lakish.
(e) R. Yehudah Nesi'ah: R. Yochanan is not a great man?!
(f) R. Oshiya: He asked me a question which needs no answer.
1. If according to R. Yehudah - whether or not a Kohen
(that becomes a Petzu'a Daka) retains his sanctity
(special marriage prohibitions), she does not eat.
(g) Rather, the question was asked according to the following
i. If he retains his sanctity - she does not eat,
since (R. Yehudah says that) the daughter of a
male convert is as the daughter of a Chalal,
and is forbidden to a Kohen.
2. If according to R. Yosi- whether or not he retains
his sanctity, she may eat.
ii. If he loses his sanctity - she does not eat.,
since (R. Yehudah says that) converts are
considered part of the congregation of Hash-m,
and may not marry a Petzu'a Daka.
i. If he retains his sanctity - she may eat, since
he holds that even the daughter of 2 converts
is permitted to Kehunah.
ii. If he loses his sanctity - she may eat, since
he holds that converts are not considered part
of the congregation of Hash-m, and may marry a
1. (Mishnah - R. Eliezer Ben Yakov): The daughter of
converts may not marry a Kohen, unless her mother is
a Bas Yisrael.
(h) R. Yochanan asked thusly: Is Kashrus added to the
daughter of a convert, and therefore she may eat - or, is
Kedushah added to her, and she does not eat?
(i) Answer (Beraisa): "A Kohen that acquires ... will eat" -
this teaches that a daughter of converts that marries a
Petzu'a Daka may eat Terumah.
1. Question: Who learns this way?
i. Suggestion #1: If R. Yehudah - whether or not
he retains his sanctity, she does not eat!
2. Answer: Rather, it is as R. Eliezer Ben Yakov - we
see, Kashrus is added, and she eats.
ii. Suggestion #2: If R. Yosi - whether or not he
retains his sanctity, she may eat (he would not
need to learn this from the verse)!
3) FORBIDDEN CHUPAH
(a) (Rav): Chupah takes effect between a couple forbidden to
(b) (Shmuel): It does not.
1. (Shmuel): Rav admits by a girl under 3 years and a
day, since relations with her are not considered
relations, Chupah does not take effect on her.
(c) (Rami Bar Chama): Whether or not Chupah takes effect when
relations are forbidden depends on the dispute between R.
Meir and R. Elazar and R. Shimon.
2. (Rava): A Mishnah supports this.
i. (Mishnah): A girl 3 years and one day: can be
engaged through relations;
3. If she is 3 years and 1 day, relations can
disqualify her, also Chupah can; less than this,
relations do not disqualify her, neither does
ii. Is acquired to her Yavam through Yibum;
iii. Men that have relations with her are liable for
the prohibition of a married woman (if she is
iv. (If she is Nidah), she makes one that has
relations with her Tamei, to impart Tumah to a
Mishkav (a vessel normally sat on) under him,
as a vessel above a Zav;
v. If she is married to a Kohen, she may eat
vi. If a man has forbidden relations with her, he
