NAZIR 6 & 7 - sponsored by Harav Ari Bergmann of Lawrence, N.Y., out of love
for Torah and those who study it.
(a) What does someone mean if he says ...
(b) We interpret his words leniently in this latter case.
- ... 'Hareini Nazir Achas Gedolah'?
- ... 'Hareini Nazir Achas Ketanah'?
- ... 'Hareini Nazir mi'Ka'an ve'Ad Sof ha'Olam'?
If not for the
Mishnah, what would we have otherwise thought?
(c) What does the Mishnah later say about someone who says 'Hareini Nazir
mi'Ka'an ve'Ad Makom P'loni', if there are ...
(d) Why do we not say there (even in the latter case) too, like we say in
*our* Mishnah, that what he really meant was that the Nezirus is hard on him
like it is to walk to that place, and he is a Nazir for thirty days?
- ... less than thirty days walking distance from where he is to that place?
- ... more than thirty days?
(a) Why, in the latter case in our Mishnah, do we not declare him a Nazir
for as many days as there are Parsah from one end of the world to the other?
(b) Why can we not explain this last Kashya on the Mishnah later ('Hareini
Nazir mi'Ka'an ve'Ad Makom P'loni') which we were just discussing?
(c) What does the Beraisa say about someone who declares himself a Nazir
like the dust of the earth or like the hair of his head ... ?
(d) Then, in similar fashion, why do we not say in our Mishnah too, that he
is a Nazir for as many times as there are inns from one end of the world to
the other? On what basis do we interpret the Noder's words leniently?
(a) What does the Tana of the Beraisa say about someone who declares Nezirus
(b) What does this distinction prove?
- ... as long as he lives, or forever?
- ... for a hundred or even a thousand years?
(c) In that case, why is the Din in our Mishnah not the same as the Din in
the Beraisa? Why is he not a Nazir for one long period until the day of his
(a) How does Rabah differentiate between our Mishnah ('mi'Ka'an ve'Ad Sof
ha'Olam'), and the Mishnah later ('ka'Afar ha'Aretz u'che'Sa'ar Roshi ...
(b) Why is his explanation not disproved from the Pasuk in Bereishis "Vayehi
Erev, Vayehi Voker, Yom Echad" (which appears to divide the days)?
(c) Rava has a different approach to explain the Seifa of our Mishnah.
According to him, the Seifa is connected to the Reisha.
What does this
(d) In which point do the previous Amora'im disagree with Rava?
(a) What will be the Din if someone says 'Hareini Nazir ve'Yom Echad'?
Answers to questions
(b) Having taught us this, why does the Tana of our Mishnah need to add the
case of 'Hareini Nazir ve'Sha'ah Echas' to teach us the same thing? Why
might the Din there have been different?
(c) And having taught us that, why does he then deem it necessary to add
the case of 'Hareini Nazir u'Mechtzah' to teach us the same thing yet again?
What might we have otherwise thought there?
(d) Is there such a thing as Nezirus for less than thirty days?
(a) What does the Tana say about someone who says 'Hareini Nazir Sheloshim
Yom ve'Sha'ah Achas'?
(b) According to Rav, how long is a person a Nazir if he says ...
(c) Why the difference?
- ... 'Hareini Nazir Sheloshim-ve'Echad Yom'?
- ... 'Hareini Nazir Sheloshim Yom ve'Yom Echad'?
(d) Rav seems to refer to our Mishnah when he says 'Lo Shanu Ela de'Amar
Sheloshim ve'Echad Yom'.
But what does that have to do with our Mishnah,
which discusses 'Hareini Nazir Sheloshim Yom ve'Sha'ah Achas', but not about
the case quoted by Rav?
(a) Rav follows the opinion of Rebbi Akiva in Bava Basra.
In which point in the above Machlokes does Rav hold like Rebbi Akiva?
What does the
Mishnah there say about someone who sells a house including the depth and
the height? Does the sale include pits and enclosures?
(b) According to Rebbi Akiva, the path leading to the pits and to the
enclosures is included in the sale.
What do the Rabbanan say?
(c) What is the basis of their Machlokes?
(d) In which case will Rebbi Akiva agree with the Rabbanan that he retains
the path for his own use?
