YEVAMOS 46-55 - Ari Kornfeld has generously sponsored the Dafyomi
publications for these Dafim for the benefit of Klal Yisrael.
(a) According to Rava, Raban Gamliel's reason (for holding 'Ein Get Achar
Get, ve'Ein Ma'amar Achar Ma'amar') is because he is in doubt whether Get is
Docheh or not and whether Ma'amar is Koneh or not.
Abaye attributes Raban Gamliel's opinion that there is Get after Ma'amar and
Bi'ah, and Ma'amar after Get and Bi'ah to the fact that, on the one hand,
Bi'ah Pesulah is better than Ma'amar and on the other, Ma'amar is better
than Bi'ah Pesulah.
What does Rava mean by
whether Get is Docheh or not or whether Ma'amar acquires or not? Why is that
a reason to say 'Ein Get Achar Get?
(b) In a Beraisa, Raban Gamliel concedes that there is Get after Ma'amar,
and Ma'amar after Get.
What does he hold in the case of Get after Ma'amar
and Bi'ah, and Ma'amar after Get and Bi'ah (both with regard to *three*
(c) What does Abaye ask on Rava from this Beraisa?
(d) So how does Abaye explain ...
1. ... Raban Gamliel? How does he differentiate between Get Achar Get and
Ma'amar Achar Ma'amar on the one hand, and Get Achar Ma'amar and Ma'amar
Achar Get, on the other?
2. ... the Rabbanan, who hold 'Yesh Get Achar Get ve'Yesh Ma'amar Achar
What does he mean when he says that ...
- ... Bi'ah Pesulah is better than Ma'amar?
- ... Ma'amar is better than Bi'ah Pesulah?
(a) According to Raban Gamliel (who holds 'Ein Get Achar Get'), if someone
gives two Gitin to two Yevamos, why might one prefer to perform Chalitzah
with the second one?
(b) Then why does the Beraisa say that he should perform Chalitzah with the
(c) What will be the Din in this case, according to the Chachamim?
(d) What is their Machlokes in the equivalent case of two Yevamin and one
Yevamah (if each one gave the Yevamah a Get)?
(a) Shmuel says 'Chalatz le'Ba'alas ha'Get, Lo Nifterah Tzarah'.
Answers to questions
(b) We ask on Shmuel from Raban Gamliel in the Beraisa, who says 'Choletz
la'Rishonah' (the Ba'alas ha'Get, whose Chalitzah then exempts the Tzarah
who did not receive a valid Get).
Why can we not ask from the Chachamim,
who also say 've'Choletz le'Achas Meihen'?
(c) How will Shmuel resolve this Kashya from Raban Gamliel? What does this
have to do with 'Yesh Zikah or 'Ein Zikah'?
(a) On what basis do we suggest that the Rabbanan hold 'Yesh Zikah'?
(b) Nevertheless, the Tana tells us that if two Yevamin gave a Get to one
Yevamah, only one Chalitzah is required. This poses a Kashya on Rabah bar
Rav Huna Amar Rav.
What does Rabah bar Rav Huna Amar Rav say?
(c) What is the Kashya?
(d) How will he answer it?
(a) According to Raban Gamliel, if the Yavam made Ma'amar first with one
Yevamah, then with the other, the first one requires a Get and Chalitzah.
Why can he not perform Yibum with her?
(b) Rebbi Yochanan maintains that Raban Gamliel, Beis Shamai, Rebbi Shimon,
ben Azai and Rebbi Nechemyah all agree in a certain point.
(c) Where do we see in our Sugya, that Raban Gamliel holds that Ma'amar is
(a) What do Beis Shamai say with regard to one of two brothers who were
married to two sisters who died, and the third brother had already made
Ma'amar with the Yevamah when the second brother died, which proves that he
too, holds that Ma'amar is Koneh?
(b) What status did Chazal give the Bi'ah of a Katan over nine?
(c) What did Rebbi Shimon remark to the Chachamim, who ruled that a Yavam
Katan who is over nine, who performed Yibum with his Yevamah, after his
brother (also a Katan over nine) had already done so, forbids her on his
(d) How does this prove that Rebbi Shimon too, holds that Ma'amar is Koneh?
(a) What distinction does ben Azai make between two Yevamin and one Yevamah,
and Ma'amar after Ma'amar by two Yevamos and one Yavam? How do we see from
there that he too, holds 'Ma'amar is Koneh?
Answers to questions
(b) How do we prove from Rebbi Nechemyah, who says in our Mishnah that there
is nothing after Bi'ah, even if it comes in the middle or at the end, that
he too, holds that Ma'amar is Koneh? Where does he mention Ma'amar?
