Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Yevamos 81
1) WHAT DISQUALIFIES A YEVAMAH
(a) Suggestion: This refutes Rav Hamnuna.
2) TUMTUM AND ANDROGINUS
1. (Rav Hamnuna): A Shomeres Yavam that has relations
with a stranger may not do Yibum.
(b) Rejection: No, even a stranger that has relations with
her disqualifies her - since the beginning of the Mishnah
deals with the Yavam, also the end.
(c) (Mishnah): Also an Ailonis that did Chalitzah ...
(d) She is only disqualified because she had relations;
1. This is unlike R. Yehudah, who says that an Ailonis
is a Zonah.
(a) (Mishnah): A Seris Chamah Kohen that married a Bas
Yisrael permits her to eat Terumah; R. Yosi and R. Shimon
say, an Androginus Kohen that that married a Bas Yisrael
permits her to eat Terumah;
3) WHAT CAN BECOME BATEL
(b) R. Yehudah says, a Tumtum that was torn and found to be a
male, does not do Chalitzah, since he is as a Seris;
(c) An Androginus may marry a woman, but he may be married to
a man; R. Eliezer says, one is liable to stoning for
relations with an Androginus, as with a man.
(d) (Gemara) Question: This is obvious (that the wife of a
Seris Chamah Kohen eats Terumah)!
(e) Answer: One might have thought, only a man that can have
children permits others to eat Terumah - we hear, this is
(f) (Mishnah): R. Yosi and R. Shimon say, an Androginus ...
(g) (Reish Lakish): He permits her to eat Terumah, but not
the chest and foreleg (parts of a sacrifice given to the
(h) (R. Yochanan): He even permits her to eat the chest and
(i) Question: Why does Reish Lakish permit her to eat
Terumah, but not the chest and foreleg - both are
forbidden mid'Oraisa to a non-Kohen!
(j) Answer: He only permits her to eat Terumah nowadays,
which is only mid'Rabanan.
(k) Question: But in the time of the Beis ha'Mikdash, when
Terumah is mid'Oraisa, he would prohibit her? If so,
instead of teaching that she cannot eat the chest and
foreleg, he should, make a distinction within Terumah
1. He should teach - she may only eat Rabbinic Terumah,
but not Terumah mid'Oraisa!
(l) Answer: This is what he taught! He only permits her to
eat Rabbinic Terumah of today, but not Terumah in the
time when there is the chest and foreleg (i.e. when the
Beis ha'Mikdash stands), even Rabbinic Terumah, lest she
come to eat Terumah mid'Oraisa.
1. R. Yochanan: Do you hold that Terumah is only
2. Reish Lakish: Yes! I learn, 'A ring (of pressed figs
of Terumah which was mixed with rings of Chulin)
becomes Batel (one may eat from the mixture)'.
3. R. Yochanan: But I learn, 'A piece (of a sacrifice
which was mixed with other pieces) becomes Batel'!
i. Do you think, the Mishnah says, '*All* that is
counted (is never Batel)"? No, the text is,
"*That* which is counted'!
(a) Question: What are they arguing over?
(b) Answer (Mishnah - R. Meir): Someone that had bundles of
clover of Kilai ha'Kerem (crossbred vegetation in a
vineyard), they must be burned; if they got mixed with
(permitted) bundles, they must be burned;
(c) Chachamim say, they are Batel if there are 200 permitted
(d) R. Meir says, all that it is normally counted, prohibits
(and is never Batel); Chachamim say, only 6 things are
never Batel; R. Akiva says, 7:
1. Nuts of Parech;
(e) Some of these (the 1st 3) are forbidden and make the
mixture forbidden because of Orlah (fruits within the 1st
3 years); the others, because of Kilai ha'Kerem.
2. Pomegranates of Badan;
3. Sealed barrels (of wine);
5. Stalks of cabbage;
6. Greek gourds;
7. R. Akiva adds, loaves of a home-ownwer.
i. R. Yochanan holds, the text is, "*That* which
is counted'; Reish Lakish holds, the text is
'*All* that is counted'.
(f) Question: What is the argument regarding "a piece among
(g) Answer (Beraisa): A piece of a Tamei sin-offering which
was mixed with 100 Tahor pieces, or a Tamei piece of the
showbread that was mixed with 100 Tahor pieces, it is
Batel; R. Yehudah says, it is not;
(h) But a piece of a Tahor sin-offering which was mixed with
100 Tahor Chulin pieces, or a Tahor piece of the
showbread that was mixed with 100 Tahor Chulin pieces,
all agree that it is not Batel.
1. The 1st part of the Beraisa teaches that it is Batel
(even though it is counted - this is difficult on
(i) Answer (R. Chiya Brei d'Rav Huna): The case is, the piece
(j) Question: If so, why does R. Yehudah say that it is not
