Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Nedarim 69
1) ANNULMENT OF 1 PARTNER
(a) If the father heard her vow and annulled it and the
husband died before he heard it, the father can annul the
portion of her vow which remained to the husband;
2) ANNULMENT OF AFFIRMATION
(b) R. Noson says, this is Beis Shamai's opinion; Beis Hillel
say, he cannot annul.
1. According to Beis Shamai, the father cuts the vow
(the same applies to the husband); according to Beis
Hillel, he weakens it.
(a) Question #1 (Rava): Can a father or husband annul his
affirmation of a vow?
3) AFFIRMATION AND ANNULMENT AT ONCE
1. Question #2: If we say that he can - can he annul
annulment of a vow?
(b) Answer: R. Yochanan taught, one may annul affirmation,
but not annulment.
(a) Question (Rabah): If he said twice 'I affirm the vow',
and he annulled the 1st affirmation - what is the law?
(b) Answer: Rava taught, if a man took the same oath twice,
if he annuls the 1st, the 2nd oath takes effect.
(c) Question (Rabah): If he said 'I affirm the vow and it is
annulled; my affirmation should not take effect unless
the annulment takes effect - what is the law?
(d) Answer (Mishnah - R. Meir): 'This is Temurah (an animal
to take the place) of a burnt-offering, Temurah of a
Shlamim' - it is the Temurah of a burnt-offering;
(e) R. Yosi says, if he intended from the start to make it
the Temurah of both, it is the Temurah of both, for a
person cannot say 2 things at once.
1. Even R. Meir only said that only the 1st statement
takes effect because he did not say 'this should not
take effect unless this does';
(f) Question (Rava): Your vow should be affirmed and annulled
at once - what is the law?
2. But when he says, 'my affirmation should not take
effect unless the annulment takes effect', R. Meir
admits that the annulment takes effect.
(g) Answer: We learn from Rabah's law.
1. (Rabah): 2 things which cannot take effect one after
the other, if one tries to make them take effect at
once, neither takes effect.
(h) Question #1 (Rabah): Your vow is annulled today - what is
1. Is it as if he said 'It is annulled tomorrow'?
2. Or not, for he did not say it explicitly?
