1) DOES THE PART PLANTED BECOME NULLIFIED?
(a) We infer, added permitted growth nullifies the forbidden
***** PEREK KONAM YAYIN *****
(b) Question (Mishnah): If Terumah is planted, the growth is
(c) Answer: R. Chanina referred to a case of planting an
onion that grew from a planted Terumah onion.
(d) Question: This was taught in a Mishnah - R. Chanina would
not need to teach it!
1. (Mishnah): What grows from what grows from Terumah
is not Terumah.
(e) Answer: R. Chanina teaches even in the case of something
that is planted, and what is planted remains.
(f) Question (Mishnah): If untithed produce is planted - if
the seed disintegrates, the growth is permitted; if the
seed remains, even the growth of the growth is forbidden!
(g) If the additional growth exceeds the amount planted, it
2) VOWS OF LIMITED DURATION
(a) (Mishnah): 'Wine is forbidden to me today' - it is only
forbidden until nightfall; 'this week' - it is forbidden
the whole week, including the coming Shabbos;
1. 'This month' - it is forbidden the entire month, and
Rosh Chodesh is considered part of the next month;
(b) If he said '1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 1 year, or 1
Shemitah', he is forbidden for that amount of time, from
day to day.
2. 'This year' - it is forbidden the entire year, and
Rosh Hashanah is considered part of the next year;
3. 'This Shemitah cycle' - it is forbidden the
remainder of the cycle, including the coming
(c) 'Until Pesach' - he is forbidden until Pesach comes;
'Until it will be Pesach' - he is forbidden until the end
(d) 'Until Lifne Pesach' - R. Meir says, until it comes; R.
Yosi says, until the end of Pesach.
(e) (Gemara - Mishnah): 'Wine is forbidden to me today' ...
(f) (R. Yirmiyah): After dark, he must seek annulment of his
vow from a Chacham.
(g) Question: Why?
(h) Answer #1 (Rav Yosef): This is a decree on account of the
case when he says '1 day'.
(i) Question (Abaye): If so, we should also decree when he
says '1 day' on account of when he says 'Today'!
3) HOW LONG IS HE FORBIDDEN?
(j) Answer (Rav Yosef): There is need for a decree only when
he says 'Today'.
1. If when he says 'Today' he is permitted at
nightfall, he may come to think that the same
applies when he says '1 day'.
(k) (Ravina): R. Yirmiyah holds as R. Noson.
2. When he says '1 day', he is forbidden for 24 hours -
this will not lead him to drink on the same day when
he says 'Today'.
1. (Beraisa - R. Noson): One who vows is as one who
builds a private altar (when this is forbidden);
completing the vow (i.e. not annulling it) is as
offering a sacrifice on this altar. (Therefore, we
fine him and require him to request annulment.)
(a) (Mishnah): 'This week' - he is forbidden the entire week
(b) Question: This is obvious!
(c) Answer: One might have thought, he meant the weekdays; we
hear, this is not so.
(d) (Mishnah): 'This month' - he is forbidden the entire
month, and Rosh Chodesh counts as part of the next month.
(e) Question: This is obvious!
(f) Answer: We need to hear the case of a short (29 day)
1. One might have thought, Rosh Chodesh should count as
the 30th day of this month, and he is forbidden.
(g) (Mishnah): 'This year' - he is forbidden the entire year
2. We hear, this is not so - people call it the
beginning of the coming month.
(h) Question: 'Wine is forbidden to me a day - what is the
1. Is this considered as 'Today', or as '1 day'?
(i) Answer #1 (Mishnah): 'Wine is forbidden to me today' - it
is only forbidden until nightfall.
1. We infer, if he said 'a day', it would be forbidden
for 24 hours.
(j) Objection: But the end of the Mishnah says, if he says '1
day', he is forbidden for 24 hours - we infer, if he said
'a day', he would be permitted at nightfall!
1. It must be, one of these inferences is invalid; we
cannot settle our question from the Mishnah.
(k) Answer #2 (Rav Ashi - Mishnah): 'Wine is forbidden to me
this year' - if the year is made a leap year, he is also
forbidden in the added month.
1. Question: What is the case?
