Yevamos 10

YEVAMOS 10 (Chanukah) - has been sponsored through the donation of Alex and Helen Gross of Rechavya, Jerusalem; may the light of the Torah always light their home and the homes of their descendants!


(a) We just concluded that Rav and Rebbi Chiya include Eishes Achiv she'Lo Hayah be'Olamo in our Mishnah, despite the fact that 'ha'Asurah la'Zeh Muteres la'Zeh' regarding it only applies according to Rebbi Shimon. What does Rebbi, who does not include any case that involves Machlokes in our Mishnah, say about this?

(b) Rav Ada Karchina quoting Rava reconciles Rebbi with Rav and Rebbi Chiya by explaining Rebbi's displeasure with Levi's original query (why the Tana did not insert a sixteenth case) differently.
How does he explain Rebbi's displeasure?

(c) Which half will apply and which will not, if Ya'akov raped ...

  1. ... two sisters?
  2. ... two strangers?
(a) According to Rav Ashi, Rebbi disagrees with Rebbi Chiya anyway; nor is he concerned about the Tana getting involved in a Machlokes.
Then on what basis did Rebbi dismiss Levi's query? Why can Imo Anusas Aviv not be inserted in our Mishnah?

(b) He (Rav Ashi) infers from the next Mishnah, which says 'Sheish Arayos Chamuros me'Eilu Mipnei she'Hein Nesu'os la'Acheirim ... Imo', that the author must be Rebbi Yehudah.
How do we know that the Mishnah is speaking about Imo *Anusas* Aviv?

(c) What does he infer from there to prove that the author must be Rebbi Yehudah?

(a) How do we refute Ravina's Kashya that maybe our Mishnah speaks about his mother whom his father had raped, and whom his brother married - illegally, in which case the author could even be Rebbi Yehudah.

(b) Rav Ashi asked Rav Kahana that it is possible to establish Anusas Aviv in our Mishnah according to Rebbi Yehudah, even without his brother having performed a sin.
How is this possible?

(c) What did Rav Kahanah answer him?

(d) Did Levi concede to Rebbi that it is impossible to insert Imo Anusas Aviv in our Mishnah?

Answers to questions



(a) Levi writes in his Mishnah, that sometimes Imo does not exempt her Tzarah from Yibum, and sometimes, she does.
In which case, does she ...
  1. ... not exempt her?
  2. ... exempt her?
(b) When does Levi list sixteen cases, in spite of Rebbi?

(c) In which point does Levi argue with Rebbi?

(a) Resh Lakish asked Rebbi Yochanan that according to Levi, who learns de'I, the Tana could also have inserted the case of a brother who betrothed his Yevamah after having performed Chalitzah with her.
What did Rebbi Yochanan reply?

(b) What could Rebbi Yochanan have replied, according to his personal opinion?

(c) So why did he not do so?

(a) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Ki Seitzei " ... Asher Lo Yivneh es Beis Achiv"?

(b) How does Resh Lakish derive his opinion (cited in the previous question) from that Pasuk?

(c) On what grounds does Rebbi Yochanan disagree with Resh Lakish, both as regards the Tzarah and as regards the other brothers vis-a-vis the Yevamah herself?

(d) So how does he view the Chalitzah of that particular brother with that particular Tzarah?

(a) The Tana of the Beraisa rules that if one of the brothers performed Chalitzah with the Yevamah, subsequently betrothed her and died, she requires Chalitzah from one of the remaining brothers.
Why is this a Kashya on Resh Lakish?

(b) When Rebbi Yochanan asked Resh Lakish this Kashya, he retorted from the Seifa, which says 'Amad Echad min ha'Achin ve'Kid'shah, Ein Lah Alav K'lum'. Why is this a Kashya on Rebbi Yochanan? What does 'Ein Lah Alav K'lum' mean?

(c) We establish the Beraisa like Rebbi Akiva.
How does that answer the Kashya (What does Rebbi Akiva say)?

(d) This answer however, is not so good.
Why not?
