Bava Metzia 64

BAVA METZIA 61,63,64,65 - Mrs. Estanne Abraham-Fawer has dedicated two weeks of Dafyomi study material to honor the second Yahrzeit of her father, Reb Mordechai ben Eliezer Zvi (Weiner, who passed away 18 Teves 5761). May the merit of supporting and advancing the study of the Talmud be l'Iluy Nishmaso.


(a) Rav Kahana attended Rav's Shiur, and although he could not catch the gist of the D'rashah, he did hear the word 'Kari' mentioned a number of times.
What does 'Kari' mean?

(b) What then, was the gist of Rav's Shiur?

(c) What is Rav's Chidush, seeing as we already learned above, 'Ein Lo, Asur'? Why might we have thought that the Din will differ here?

(a) Rav's ruling concurs with the ruling of the Tana of a Beraisa.
What does the Tana say about Reuven, who, on his way to milk his goats, to sheer his sheep or take the honey from his beehive, meets Shimon and offers him ...
  1. ... whatever milk, wool or honey he obtains from his animals for a fixed sum, irrespective of their value?
  2. ... the same, but at a fixed (special) price, but in accordance with how much he collects?
(b) What do we see from here?

(c) Why is the removal of honey from the honey-combs called 'Rediyah'?

(a) In a second Lashon, we quote Rava, who disagrees with Rav. Based on the fact that little pumpkins inevitably become big ones, he maintains that selling the small ones on credit does not constitute Ribis.
How will we then reconcile Rava with the Seifa of the Beraisa that we just quoted?

(b) How does he prove this difference logically?

(a) What does Abaye say about Reuven giving Shimon four Zuz for a barrel of wine, stipulating that if the wine turns sour, the sale is invalid, but if the price rises or falls, the sale will be valid?

(b) Rav Sheravya queries Abaye's ruling from a Beraisa.
Which Beraisa?

(c) How does Abaye vindicate his ruling?

Answers to questions



(a) What does the Tana of our Mishnah say about a creditor who is looking for a place to stay.
Which two things may he not do should his debtor offer him accommodation?

(b) We learned in Bava Kama that if Reuven resides in Shimon's Chatzer without the latter's consent, he does not need to pay rent.
Why is that?
What is the case?

(c) Rav Yosef bar Minyumi Amar Rav Nachman however, forbids a creditor do so. What is Rav Nachman's Chidush? Is that not what we learned in our Mishnah?

(a) In the second Lashon, Rav Nachman concludes that in spite of the ruling of the Sugya in Bava Kama, *'Halveini*, ve'Dur ba'Chatzeri, Tzarich Le'ha'alos Lo S'char'. In which point does this Lashon disagree from the first Lashon?

(b) In the previous case, which forbids the creditor to reside in the debtor's apartment free only if the debtor stipulated it, will it make any difference whether the stipulation was made at the time of the loan or afterwards?

(c) What can we extrapolate from the first Lashon regarding a creditor taking a house as a security in order to live in it?

(d) How does this differ from taking a vineyard as a security, which we will permit later in the Perek?

(a) What did Rav Yosef bar Chama used to do with the Avadim of his debtors?

(b) How did he explain his actions to his son Rava?

(c) What did his son Rava then mean when he made a distinction between Dari and other Avadim? Who was Dari?

(a) So Rav Nachman based his rationale on a ruling of Rav Daniel bar Rav Ketina.
What did Rav Daniel bar Rav Ketina say about grabbing one's friend's Eved and working with him?

(b) Rava B'rei de'Rav Yosef forced his father to retract by quoting Rav Yosef bar Minyumi Amar Rav Nachman.
What did he say?
