Nidah 60

***************GIRSA SECTION********************
We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, Rav B. Rensburg and the parenthetical marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section is devoted to any *OTHER* changes that we feel ought to be made in Gemara, Rashi or Tosfos.)

[1] Gemara 60a [last line]:
"Rav Ashi Amar, Ha v'Ha *Raban Shimon Ben Gamliel*"
It somewhat appears from Rashi 60b DH "Kan l'Mafrei'a", that his Girsa was
"Ha v'Ha *b'Sheni*". However, I have not found another source for this
emendation. (M. KORNFELD)

By Torah Law, a woman who sees blood is a Nidah for a period of seven days. It makes no difference whether she saw blood only one time or for the entire seven days. The next eleven days are "days of Zivah." If a woman experiences bleeding during these days for one or two consecutive days, she becomes a Zavah Ketanah and is Temei'ah. If she does not experience bleeding the following night and day, she may immerse in a Mikvah to become Tehorah. She may even immerse in a Mikvah the following morning but her Tum'ah and Taharah are contingent upon whether or not she sees blood afterwards on that day. She is called a Shomeres Yom k'Neged Yom, because she must *watch* the following day to see whether or not she sees blood.


*2*) [line 2] HISH'ILAH CHALUKAH L'NACHRIS, BA'ALAS KESEM HAREI ZU TOLAH BAH - (note the comma - )If she lent her garment to a non-Jewish woman, then the Jewish woman who owns the garment (and finds on it blood upon wearing it after it has been returned) may assume that the blood was from the non-Jewish woman (RASHI)

3) [line 12] MATLANIYOS - pieces of cloth
4) [line 22] AMBATI - bathtub
5) [line 33] B'SHI'UR VESES - immediately (after the Kesem was found on the bed)

6) [line 35] ASHAM TALUY
If a person is in doubt as to whether or not he committed a transgression (for which a Korban Chatas is brought if he definitely transgressed), he must bring an Asham Taluy. This Korban atones for the possible sin, *until* he discovers for certain that he has indeed committed the transgression, at which point he must bring a Korban Chatas.

(a) If a woman *wiped* herself *immediately* after Tashmish and found blood on the cloth, the couple becomes Tamei and they need to bring a Korban Chatas.
(b) If the woman did a Bedikah further in, which takes more time, there is room for doubt as to whether there was blood during Tashmish. They would therefore only be Safek Tamei and bring an Asham Taluy.
(c) If more time elapsed than it takes for her to make a Bedikah, the couple is Tahor and do not bring any Korban.
