YEVAMOS 46-65 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi publications for these Dafim for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.


(a) On what grounds did Moshe separate from his wife after Matan Torah (in spite of the fact that he had not yet fulfilled the Mitzvah of Piryah ve'Rivya, according to Beis Hillel)?

(b) How do we know that Hashem agreed with him?

(c) On what grounds did he ...

  1. ... break the Luchos?
  2. ... add a day to Matan Torah?
(d) And how do we know that Hashem agreed with him regarding ...
  1. ... his breaking of the Luchos?
  2. ... adding a day to Matan Torah?
2) On which day of the week did Yisrael ...
  1. ... separate from their wives?
  2. ... receive the Torah?
(a) What does Rebbi Nasan learn from a combination of the Pesukim in Bereishis "va'Tosef la'Ledes es Achiv es Hevel" and "Ki Shas Li Elokim Zera Acher Tachas Hevel Ki Harago Kayin"?

(b) How do the Rabbanan of Rebbi Nasan explain the Pasuk "Ki Shas Li Elokim ... "?

(c) In another Beraisa, Rebbi Nasan explains the opinion of Beis Shamai like we explained Beis Hillel until now (one boy and one girl).
What do Beis Hillel learn from the Pasuk in Yeshayah "Lo Tohu Bera'ah, Lasheves Yetzarah" according to Rebbi Nasan?

(a) According to Rebbi Yochanan, a Ger who had children before he converted, has fulfilled the Mitzvah of "P'ru u'Revu", and is not obligated to have more children.
On what basis does Resh Lakish disagree with him?

(b) They also argue about whether his first son has the Din of a Bechor or not, and for similar reasons.
Why did they need to argue this Halachah twice? What might we have thought had they confined their Machlokes to ...

  1. ... "P'ru u'Revu" and not to Nachalah?
  2. ... Nachalah and not to "P'ru u'Revu"?
(c) How will Resh Lakish explain the Pasuk in Melachim 2 which specifically refers to "Morach B'ladan ben B'ladan", indicating that the son of a Nochri is considered his son?
(a) What does Rav derive from the Pasuk in Vayeira "Sh'vu Lachem Po im ha'Chamor"?

(b) Rav Acha bar Ya'akov reconciles Rav's statement with the Pasuk in Shmuel 2 "u'le'Tziva (the slave of Mefivoshes, Yonasan's son) Chamishah-Asar Banim ve'Esrim Avadim", by comparing this to a 'Par ben Bakar'.
In that case, why can we not say the same by the son of a Nochri, which we learned from "Morach B'ladan ben B'ladan"?

(c) Alternatively, we answer this Kashya with the Pasuk "va'Yeshal'chem ha'Melech Asa el ben-Hadad ben Tavrimon ben Chezyon Melech Aram ... ".
How does that answer the Kashya?

(a) According to Rav Huna, if someone's children died, he has nevertheless fulfilled the Mitzvah of "P'ru u'Revu".
On what grounds does Rebbi Yochanan say that he has not?

(b) Rav Huna's reason is based on a statement by Rav Asi.
What did Rav Asi say? How did he learn from the Pasuk in Yeshayah "Ki Ru'ach mi'Lefanai Ya'atof"?

(c) The Beraisa 'B'nei Banim Harei Hein ke'Banim' suggests that if the child who died did not have a son, he would not fulfil the Mitzvah, even though he had a child who died.
How does Rav Huna explain the Beraisa?

(d) What does the Tana of another Beraisa say that finally refutes Rav Huna?
