Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Yevamos 100
1) PEOPLE THAT DO NOT RECEIVE TERUMAH AT THE GRANARIES
(a) A slave does not receive, lest people will come to assume
he has proper lineage (for marriage).
2) AFTER THEY FREE EACH OTHER
(b) An Arel and Tamei do not receive - they are repulsive.
(c) A Kohen that married a woman forbidden to him - he is
(d) Question: Why doesn't a woman receive?
(e) Answer #1 (Rav Papa or Rav Huna Brei d'Rav Yehoshua):
Lest she continue to receive after she is divorced.
(f) Answer #2 (The Amora that did not give Answer #1): Lest
she come to be in seclusion with a man.
(g) Question: What is the difference between these reasons?
(h) Answer #1: A place which is close to the city (and they
would know if she was divorced), and people are not
commonly found there (so seclusion is a problem);
(i) Answer #2: A place far from the city (they would not know
that she was divorced), and people are common there (so
seclusion is not a problem).
(j) (Beraisa): All of them, we send Terumah to their houses,
except for a Tamei or a Kohen that married a woman
forbidden to him.
1. But we do send to an Arel.
(k) (Beraisa): A slave and a woman, they do not receive
Terumah at the granaries; in a place where they receive,
we give first to the woman, and send her away.
2. Suggestion: If this is because this is beyond his
control (he should not circumcise himself, because
his brothers died through circumcision) - the same
applies to a Tamei!
3. Answer: An Arel is totally blameless - a Tamei could
have been more careful.
(l) Question: What does this mean (we said, they do not
(m) Answer: Where Ma'aser Oni is distributed, we give a woman
first, because of disgrace.
1. (Rava): Before, when a man and woman would come for
judgment, I would hear the man's case first, because
he is obligated in (all) Mitzvos.
2. Now that I heard the above law, I hear the woman's
case first, because of disgrace.
(a) (Mishnah): When they grow up ...(if they freed each
3) A CHILD THAT MAY BE FROM THE 1ST OR 2ND HUSBAND
(b) Question: Why may they choose if they want to free each
other - before this, they cannot marry, neither a slave
nor a Bas Yisrael!
(c) Answer (Rava): Rather, we force them to free each other.
(d) (Mishnah): They have the stringencies ...
(e) Question: What law does this teach?
(f) Answer (Rav Papa): When they bring a flour offering, a
handful is offered on the Altar as an offering of a
Yisrael, and the remainder is not eaten as the offering
of a Kohen.
1. The handful is offered by itself, and the remainder
(g) Objection: But anything which has become permitted by
offering a portion, one who burns the remainder
transgresses "Do not burn"!
(h) Answer #1 (R. Yehudah Brei d'R. Shimon Ben Pazi): He
burns it as if it was wood, as R. Elazar.
1. (Beraisa - R. Elazar): "For a fragrant scent", you
cannot burn on the Altar, but you can burn as if it
(i) Answer #2: We do as R. Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon.
2. This answer only works according to R. Elazar -
according to Chachamim, how can we answer?
1. (Beraisa - R. Elazar b'Rebbi Shimon): The handful is
offered by itself, and the remainder is scattered in
the place where ashes from the Altar are placed.
2. Even Chachamim only argue on R. Elazar b'Rebbi
Shimon regarding the sin-offering of a Kohen, since
it can be offered - but here, they admit.
(a) (Mishnah): A woman that remarried without waiting 3
months, and gave birth; we do not know if she gave birth
after 9 months of pregnancy, and the baby is from the 1st
husband; or if she gave birth after 7 months of
pregnancy, and the baby is from the 2nd husband.
(b) If she had (certain) sons from both husbands - (if the
doubtful son dies) they do Chalitzah, not Yibum; if one
of them dies, the doubtful son does Chalitzah, not Yibum.
(c) If he had brothers from both possible fathers (and not
from his mother), he may do Chalitzah or Yibum to their
widows; if he died, a brother from one possible father
does Chalitzah, and a brother from the other possible
father may do Yibum.
4) A KOHEN MUST HAVE KNOWN LINEAGE
(d) If 1 possible father was a Yisrael, and 1 a Kohen, the
doubtful son has the following restrictions:
1. He marries a woman fit for a Kohen;
(e) If both possible fathers are Kohanim, he is an Onen when
either of them dies, and they are Onenim when he dies;
2. He may not become Tamei - if he did, he is not
3. He does not eat Terumah - if he ate, he does not pay
the principle, nor add a fifth;
4. He does not receive a share of Terumah at the
granaries; he sells Terumah that he separates from
his own produce, and keeps the money;
5. He does not get a share of Kodshim of the Temple, if
he comes to offer a sacrifice, we do not seize it
6. He is exempt from giving the foreleg, jaw and
stomach of a Chulin animal;
7. His firstborn animals graze until they get a
8. We put on him the stringencies of a Kohen and a
(f) He does not become Tamei to engage in burying them, and
they do not become Tamei to engage in burying him; he
does not inherit them, but they inherit him; he is exempt
if he hits or curses either of them;
(g) He goes to the Temple during the period when each of them
goes up to serve, but he does not receive a portion of
1. If they are from the same watch of Kohanim, he does
receive a portion.
(h) (Gemara): Chalitzah must be done before Yibum - but not
Yibum first, lest he is from the other father, and the
Shomeres Yavam transgresses having relations with a
(a) (Shmuel): 10 Kohanim are standing, and one separated and
had relations with a woman, who conceived and gave birth
from that incident - the child is a Shtuki (silenced).
(b) Question: Regarding what is the child a Shtuki?
1. Suggestion: If we silence (deny) him from inheriting
his father's property - this is obvious, we do not
know which is his father!
(c) Answer: Rather, we silence him from serving as a Kohen -
"To him and his sons after him" - we require that his
sons know their lineage from him, and this is lacking.
(d) Question (Rav Papa): How will you expound what Hash-m
said to Avraham - "To be to you as Hash-m, and to your
children after you"?
(e) Answer: Hash-m warned him not to marry a Nochri or slave,
so his seed should not go after her.
(f) Question (Beraisa): 'The first son (when a woman did
Yibum within 3 months, and we do not know who is the
father) is fitting to be a Kohen Gadol' - but the child
cannot trace his lineage to his father!
(g) Answer: The requirement of being able to trace the
lineage is only mid'Rabanan, the verse is only an
Asmachta; Chachamim only decreed by extramarital
relations, not by marriage.
(h) Question: Did Chachamim really decree by extramarital
1. (Mishnah): A woman that remarried without waiting 3
months after her husband, and gave birth ...
2. Question: How did she leave her 1st husband?
3. Suggestion #1: If he died - but the Mishnah says
later, the doubtful son is an Onen when they die,
and they are Onenim when he dies!
i. We understand, the son is an Onen when the 2nd
husband dies, and he is an Onen when the bones
of the 1st husband are gathered.
4. Suggestion #2: Rather, the 1st husband divorced her
- she did not wait 3 months after the Get of her
ii. They are Onenim when he dies - but the 1st
husband died before the son was born!
i. But the Mishnah says later, he may not become
Tamei to engage in burying them, and they may
not become Tamei to engage in burying him.
5. Answer #1: It must be, the 1st man never married his
mother, they just had extramarital relations.
ii. We understand, they cannot become Tamei to bury
him - each is in doubt if this is his son!
iii. We understand, the son can't become Tamei to
bury the 2nd man - perhaps it is not his
iv. Question: Why can't the son become Tamei to
bury the 1st man - if it is his father, this is
a Mitzvah; if it is not his father - the son is
a Chalal (his mother was divorced), he may
i. When the Mishnah says, she did not wait 3
months after Ba'alah (her husband) - it means,
after Bo'alah (the man that had relations with
6. Answer #2 (Rav Shemaya): His mother did Mi'un (and
was therefore permitted to remarry a Kohen).
ii. The Mishnah continues, the son goes to the
Temple with the watch of each father - this
7. Question: If she did Mi'un, she could not give
i. (Rav Bibi): 3 woman have relations with a wad
(to inhibit pregnancy) - a minor, a pregnant
woman, and a nursing woman - a minor, lest she
get pregnant and die; a pregnant woman, lest
the fetus get squashed; a nursing woman - lest
she be forced to wean her child, and he will
8. Answer #3: The case is, her engagement was on
condition, and it was not fulfilled.
ii. The minor referred to is between 11 and 12
years of age - below or above this, she has
normal relations - this is R. Meir's opinion;
iii. Chachamim say, in all cases, she has normal
relations, and Heaven will have mercy on her -
"Hash-m watches over the simple".
i. (Rav Yehudah): "She was not grabbed", she is
forbidden - had she been forced, she would be
permitted - there is another case, even though
she was not grabbed, she is permitted - this is
the case of a mistaken engagement.
ii. Even if her son is on her shoulder, she may do
Mi'un and leave her husband.
