(b) The Tana of our Mishnah does not hold like Rebbi Dustai ben Yehudah.
What does he say?
(c) How does he extrapolate this from the Pasuk "ve'Lo Yechalel Zar'o
(a) Seeing as the Torah only invalidates the daughter of a Kohen Gadol to an
Almanah, from where does the Tana of the Beraisa initially learn that the
Almanah herself becomes a Chalalah too?
(b) Why can we not refute this 'Kal va'Chomer from the Kohen Gadol, who does
not become a Chalal?

with a divorcee who has been married to someone else) "To'evah Hi"?

Chalalah, Kol she'Noldah min ha'Pesulim'?
(c) So how does Rav Yehudah then explain the Beraisa?
(d) Considering that an Almanah le'Kohen Gadol and a Gerushah and a Zonah to
