Yevamos 32

YEVAMOS 32 (23 Teves) - l'Iluy Nishmas Nachum ben Shlomo Dovid Mosenkis, by his son, Sid Mosenkis of Queens, NY.


(a) What does the Mishnah say about two brothers who married two sisters, when first one of the brothers died, and then the other brother's wife? May the remaining brother perform Yibum with his Yevamah?

(b) Having already learned this earlier, in a case where there is another Yavam (and the Yevamah is *not* completely pushed away from that house), is it not obvious that the same will apply here, where she *is*?

(a) If the Yavam performs Yibum with his wife's sister be'Shogeg whilst she is still alive, Rebbi Yossi says in the Beraisa that he is Chayav two Chata'os, one for Eishes Ach and one for Achos Ishah.
What does Rebbi Shimon say?

(b) How do we reconcile this with another Beraisa, where Rebbi Shimon says that he is only Chayav because of Achos Ishah?

(c) There where the brother married his sister-in-law before the current Yavam married her sister, seeing as the Isur of Achos Ishah does not take effect, why can the Yavam not perform Yibum?

(a) The Tana Kama says that if someone performed a sin which carries with it two Miysos, he receives the more stringent of the two.
What does Rebbi Yossi say about that?

(b) What does Rebbi Yossi (elaborating on this statement) say in another Beraisa, in the case of a woman who is his mother-in-law and also married?

Answers to questions



(a) To resolve the contradiction in Rebbi Yossi, Rebbi Avahu explains that Rebbi Yossi concedes that 'Isur Chal al Isur' in the case of an Isur Mosif. Which of the two cases in the first Beraisa is the Isur Mosif, Achos Ishah or Eishes Ach? Why is that an Isur Mosif?

(b) Chamoso who then got married is certainly a case of Isur Mosif.
Why is that?

(c) Why does Rebbi Yossi then rule that he receives the death of Chamoso?

(d) What would be the Din if he transgressed both of them be'Shogeg?

(a) Under which category of 'Isur Chal al Isur' does 'Nasa Meis ve'Achar-Kach Nasa Chai' fall?

(b) What problem do we have with Rebbi Avahu's explanation in Rebbi Yossi?

(a) Which is stronger, Isur Mosif or Isur Kolel?

(b) So how does Rava (backed by Ravin Amar Rebbi Yochanan) explain Rebbi Yossi? If Rebbi Yossi does not hold of 'Isur Chal al Isur' at all, then under which circumstances will both Eishes Ach and Achos Ishah be effective? In which regard do they both take effect?

(a) If a Zar served in the Beis Hamikdash on Shabbos, he is punished for both, according to Rebbi Chiya.
Why can this not mean that he has to bring two Chata'os?

(b) Then what *does* Rebbi Chiya mean?

(c) How does Rebbi Chiya prove his opinion from the words of Rebbi?

(d) What does Bar Kapara say? How does he prove *his* opinion from the words of Rebbi?

(a) They also engage in the same dispute by a Ba'al-Mum who served be'Tum'ah.
What sort of Korban are they referring to in both disputes?

(b) Here too, both Rebbi Chiya and Bar Kapara prove their respective opinions from Rebbi.
What is Rebbi's argument according to ...

  1. ... Rebbi Chiya?
  2. ... Bar Kapara?
(a) Their third Machlokes concerns a Zar who ate Melikah.
What is wrong with eating Melikah?

(b) Once again, both Rebbi Chiya and Bar Kapara prove their respective opinions from Rebbi.
What is Rebbi's argument, according to ...

  1. ... Rebbi Chiya?
  2. ... Bar Kapara?
