bas Reb Chaim Yitzchak Ozer, A"H.
(a) We just learned that, according to ben Bag-Bag, there is no Simpon by
Why does the purchaser not have a claim of a false sale by ...
(b) Basically then, ben Bag-Bag and Rebbi Yehudah ben Beseira agree that an
Arusah bas Yisrael is forbidden to eat Terumah, either because of Simpon or
because of the fear that she will feed her siblings. They argue only in two
cases. They argue by 'Kibeil' (if he accepted the blemishes before they
became betrothed), where Simpon no longer applies, but the fear that she
might feed her siblings does.
- ... visible blemishes?
- ... hidden blemishes?
- ... a slave who turns out to be a thief or a Kubiyustes? What is a Kubiyustus"?

What is their Machlokes in the case of 'Masar
(a) Rebbi Zeira initially ascribes Beis Shamai who requires a Dinar for
Kidushin, to the fact that a woman will not agree to less.
What did Abaye
ask him from the daughters of Rebbi Yanai?
(b) What was Rebbi Zeira's reply? Would she be betrothed or not?
(c) How did he then establish Beis Shamai?
(a) Rav Yosef connects Beis Shamai with a statement of Rav Yehudah Amar Rav
Answers to questions
What did Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi say?
(b) How does this rule out a P'rutah with regard to Kidushin?
(c) What is the basic difference between Kesef Tzuri and Kesef Medinah?
(d) Seeing as there are other silver coins of smaller demoninations than a
Dinar, why did Beis Shamai fix the minimum Shiur for Kidushin as a Dinar?
(a) The Torah writes in Mishpatim (in connection with a Shomer Chinam) "Ki
Yiten Ish el Re'eihu Kesef O Keilim Lishmor ... Asher Yomar Ki Hu Zeh".
What do we learn from "Asher Yomar Ki Hu Zeh"?
(b) What does the Mishnah in Shevu'os give as the minimum sum for the claim
(according to Shmuel, and the denial, according to Rav)?
(c) What is the smallest coin in the Tzuri range of coins?
(a) How does the Mishnah in Shevu'os pose a Kashya on Rav Yehudah Amar Rav
Asi ('Kol Kesef ha'Amur ba'Torah S'tam ... ')?
(b) How does he answer this Kashya? From where does the Tana learn that
*two* coins are required for the claim?
(c) And in which regard does the Torah then compare Keilim to Kesef?
(a) Others explain that a Dinar is the smallest Tzuri coin.
How do they
then explain the Kashya on Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi from the Mishnah?
(b) What is the answer?
(c) On what grounds does Rashi reject this explanation? Besides the change
of text from the Sugya in Shevu'os (which learns this Limud the other way
round [Keilim from Kesef]) what is wrong with saying 'Mah Keilim Davar
Chashuv, Af Kesef Davar Chashuv'?
(d) What do we really learn from the comparison of Kesef to Keilim,
according to Rashi?
(a) What is the Tana of the Mishnah in Ma'aser Sheini referring to when he
says 'ha'Poret Ma'os mi'Ma'os Ma'aser Sheini'?
(b) How do Beis Shamai conclude this phrase?
(c) Based on the Pasuk "ve'Tzarta *ha'Kesef* be'Yadecha", this Mishnah too,
poses a Kashya on Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi. The answer however, lies in the
very same word as the Kashya.
What is it?
(a) What does Shmuel say about redeeming 'Hekdesh Shaveh Manah'?
(b) What is he coming to teach us?
(c) And how will Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi reconcile Shmuel with the Pasuk
which writes in Bechukosai (in connection with the redemption of Hekdesh)
"ve'Yasaf Chamishis *Kesef* Erkecha Alav ve'Kam Lo"?
(a) What do we finally ask on Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi from the Machlokes
between Beis Shamai and Beis Hillel in our Mishnah?
(b) So how do we amend Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi's statement in order to
eliminate this problem? Which word do we add to 'Kol Kesef ha'Amur ba'Torah
Kesef Tzuri ... '?
(a) Whom does the Torah obligate to pay ...
(b) How does the Mishnah in Bechoros, after listing these five cases,
- ... five Sela'im?
- ... thirty Sela'im"?
- ... fifty Sela'im"?
- ... a hundred Sela'im"?
(c) How much is ...
(d) Seeing as the Tana has already taught us that these five must pay in
Tzuri coinage, what then, is Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi coming to teach us?
- ... a Shekel??
- ... a Shekel ha'Kodesh?
(a) The Tana of the Beraisa rules 'ha'Tokei'a la'Chaveiro, Nosen Lo Sela'.
What does 'ha'Tokei'a' mean?

(c) Based on Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi, how much is a Sela?
(d) How much would it have been if not for Rav Yehudah Amar Rav Asi's
(a) Resh Lakish disagrees with the explanations of both Rebbi Zeira and Rav
Yosef in Beis Shamai. According to him, they derive the Dinar of Kidushin
from Amah ha'Ivriyah, which in turn, they learn from Chizkiyah.
Answers to questions
Chizkiyah learn from the Pasuk in Mishpatim "ve'Hefdah"?
(b) What do we extrapolate from there?
(c) Why do we not say that Gera'on Kesef applies whenever it is possible,
but not when the sale is for less than a Shaveh P'rutah? How do we learn
this from Yi'ud?
