NEDARIM 82 (Yom Kipur 5761) - Anonymously dedicated by an ardent supporter
who wants to have the Zechus of spreading Torah throughout the world.
(a) What does Rav Huna learn from the fact that the Tana of our Mishnah says
' ... Harei Zeh Yafer', after having already said earlier 'Rebbi Yossi Omer,
Ein Eilu Nidrei Inuy Nefesh'?
(b) What does Shmuel quoting Levi say about ...
(c) What sort of Nedarim is Shmuel referring to?
- ... all Nedarim except for Hana'asi al P'loni'?
- ... 'Hana'as P'loni Alai'?
(a) Our Mishnah states 'Konem Peiros Medinah Zu Alai, Yavi Lah mi'Medinah
Acheres' (implying that she is not permitted to eat the fruit of that
Medinah [even through the Ba'al's Hafarah], in which case, he should
certainly not be able to annul the Neder in the case of 'Hana'as P'loni
To resolve the Kashya on Shmuel, how does Rav Yosef initially
establish this Mishnah?
(b) Why does the Mishnah then not say that someone else should bring fruit
from another country, rather than that her husband should bring her fruit
from that one?
(c) What is then the problem from the Seifa of our Mishnah 'Peiros Chenvani
Zeh Alai, Ein Yachol Lehafer'? Why will it not suffice to answer that it
too, speaks when she said 'she'Tavi Atah'?
(a) Having now been forced to retract from the suggestion that our Mishnah
speaks when she said 'she'Tavi Atah' (and to establish it even when she
brings the fruit herself), how will Shmuel account for the Reisha 'Peiros
Chenvani Zeh Alai, Ein Yachol Lehafer'?
Some commentaries explain that when Shmuel rules 'Hana'as P'loni Alai', he
is speaking about Beino le'Veinah like Rebbi Yossi (in which case the
Halachah will be like Rebbi Yossi).
(b) Why do we need to cite Rav Huna here, seeing as the Tana himself quotes
the case in Rebbi Yossi's name?
(c) And, in answering Shmuel, why is it necessary to add that although the
husband cannot annul the Neder because of Inuy Nefesh, he can annul it
because of Beino le'Veinah?
(d) We prove from Shmuel, who rules like the Rabbanan, that the Halachah is
like the Rabbanan, and not like Rebbi Yossi, even though the author of all
the Mishnah's in the Perek from now on is Rebbi Yossi.
Why are they not
considered S'tam Mishnahs?
On what grounds do we refute this
Answers to questions
(a) Rav Yehudah Amar Shmuel rules that if a woman declares a Neder on two
loaves, one, a loaf of white bread (which causes her Inuy), the other, one
of black bread (which does not), her husband can even annul the Neder on the
Why is that? What is Shmuel's source?
(b) What would be the Din, according to Shmuel, if he were to annul only the
half of the Neder pertaining to the white loaf?
(c) What does Rav Asi Amar Rebbi Yochanan say?
(d) On what grounds does he disagree with Shmuel? How will he interpret
(a) According to others, Rav Asi asked Rebbi Yochanan in the form of a
She'eilah what the Din would be in the case of the two loaves.
Answers to questions
Rebbi Yochanan reply?
(b) Does Rebbi Yochanan speak even when the husband or the father annulled
the loaf of black-bread specifically?
(c) Seeing as Shmuel learns from "Iyshah Yeferenu" that the husband is
obligated to annul the entire Neder, how will he explain the Mishnah,
'Netulah Ani min ha'Yehudim, Yafer Chelko ... '? Why should he not be
obligated to annul the rest of the Neder too?
(d) What is the logic behind this distinction between Nidrei Inuy Nefesh and
Nedarim she'Beino le'Veinah?
