Answers to questions

(c) How does the Rashba explain the difference between a Ta'anis Yachid
(vis-a-vis 'Yom Echad') and a regular case of 'ha'Yom'?

that Rebbi Yirmiyah bar Aba (who requires the Neder of 'ha'Yom to be
revoked') conforms with Rebbi Nasan (who considers someone who declares a

had said 'Yom', the prohibition would last for twenty-four hours?
(a) The Beraisa says in the case of 'Konem Yayin she'Ani To'em ha'Shanah,
Asur Bah u'be'Iburah'.
What is the final ruling with regard to our unresolved She'eilah?
Why must the Tana be speaking when the Noder
declared the Neder at the beginning of the year? What would be the Din if he
made the same Neder in Sh'vat?
(b) On what grounds do we attempt to reject the literal interpretation of

She'eilah (of whether 'Yom' is like 'ha'Yom' or 'Yom Echad')?
