(a)On what condition does the Mishnah rule that, if after Reuven declares 'Hareini Nazir', Shimon and then Levi say 'va'Ani', they are Nezirim (See Tos. Yom-Tov)?

(b)What does the Tana say if Reuven then has his Neder annulled?

(c)What if Levi is the one to have his Neder annulled?

1)

(a)The Mishnah rules that, if after Reuven declares 'Hareini Nazir', Shimon and then Levi say 'va'Ani', they too are Nezirim - provided they say it within 'Toch k'dei Dibur' (the time it takes to say 'Shalom alecha Rebbi') of each other's declaration (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

(b)The Tana rules that if Reuven then has his Neder annulled - Shimon and Levi's Nezirus are annulled as well. But ...

(c)... if Levi is the one to have his Neder annulled - Reuven and Shimon remain Nezirim.

2)

(a)The Tana also rules that if, after Reuven declares 'Hareini Nazir', Shimon says 'Pi ke'Fiv' or 'Se'ari ki'Se'aro', he too, is a Nazir. For the Neder to take effect, what must he add to ...

1. ... 'Pi ke'Fiv'?

2. ... 'Se'ari ki'Se'aro'?

2)

(a)The Tana also rules that if, after Reuven declares 'Hareini Nazir', Shimon says 'Pi ke'Fiv' or 'Se'ari ki'Se'aro', he too, is a Nazir. For the Neder to take effect, he needs to add to ...

1. ... Pi ke'Fiv - 'mi'Yayin'.

2. ... Se'ari ki'Se'aro' - 'mi'Lehigazeiz' (from being cut).

3)

(a)With regard to the husband annulling his wife's Neder, what will be the Din in a case where ...

1. ... a man declares 'Hareini Nazir' and his wife says 'va'Ani'?

2. ... a woman declares 'Hareini Nazir and her husband says 'va'Ani'?

(b)What is the reason for the latter ruling?

3)

(a)With regard to the husband annulling his wife's Neder, in a case where ...

1. ... a man declares 'Hareini Nazir' and his wife says 'va'Ani' - he is permitted to annul her Neder, whilst his remains intact.

2. ... a woman declares 'Hareini Nazir and her husband says 'va'Ani' - then he cannot annul it ...

(b)... because by declaring 'va'Ani', he is in essence, upholding her Nezirus.

4)

(a)On what condition will the wife become a Nazir in a case where the husband declares 'Hareini Nazir ve'At'?

(b)What is the difference between this case and the reverse case, where the wife declares 'Hareini Nezirah ve'Atah', and the husband says 'Amen'?

(c)Why can he not annul the latter?

(d)On what condition is he able to annul the former?

(e)In the former case, what happens to his Neder when he annuls that of his wife?

4)

(a)In a case where the husband declares 'Hareini Nazir ve'At', his wife will become a Nazir - if she answers 'Amen' (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

(b)The difference between this case and the reverse one, where the wife declares 'Hareini Nezirah ve'Atah', and the husband says 'Amen' is - that, whereas in the former, the husband is able to annul his wife's Neder, in the latter case, he is not ...

(c)... because - by declaring 'Amen' he automatically upholds her Neder.

(d)And he is only able to annul the former - if, when he says 've'At', he is not making a statement (in which case he will be upholding her Neder), but asking a question (i.e. 'How about you?').

(e)In the former case, when he annuls his wife's Neder - his own Neder remains intact (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

(a)What does the Mishnah say about a Nezirah (a woman who is a Nazir) who drinks wine or who renders herself Tamei Meis?

(b)What if, after she did so, her husband annulled her Neder?

(c)Why is that (See Tos. Yom-Tov)?

5)

(a)The Mishnah rules that a Nezirah (a woman who is a Nazir) who drinks wine or who renders herself Tamei Meis - receives Malkos ...

(b)... even if, after she did so, her husband annulled her Neder ...

(c)... because a husband is only able to annul his wife's Nedarim from that moment on (not retroactively).

6)

(b)What does Rebbi Yehudah say?

2. ... the Olah?

3. ... the Shelamim?

7)

(a)When his Nezirus terminates, a Nazir is obligated to bring - three Korbanos, a Chatas, an Olah and a Shelamim.

(b)If a Nezirah has already designated her Korbanos when her husband annuls her Neder, in the event that the animals belong to him - the animals are subject to 'Yir'eh ... ' (they are sent into a field to romp around until they obtain a blemish and are then redeemed [See Tos. Yom-Tov]).

(c)In the event that they belong to her, the Mishnah rules that ...

1. ... the Chatas - must die (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

2. ... the Olah - is brought as an Olah.

3. ... the Shelamim - are brought as Shelamim.

8)

(a)In the latter case, how long does the woman have to eat the Shelamim?

(b)Why not two days like a regular Korban Shelamim?

(c)Why does the Tana need to say that it does not require loaves of bread?

(d)Seeing as all her property is Meshubad to her husband, how can the Nezirah own animals in the first place?

8)

(a)In the latter case, the woman has one day in which to eat the Shelamim ...

(b)... because the time-period of a Shalmei Nazir is one day and one night.

(c)The Tana needs to say that it does not require loaves of bread - a regular Shalmei Nazir is brought together with loaves of bread.

(d)Despite that fact that all her property is Meshubad to her husband, the Nezirah nevertheless can own animals - if someone gave them to her on condition that her husband has no rights over them (See also Tos. Yom-Tov).

9)

(a)In a case where the woman designated, not animals, but money with which to purchase her Korbanos, the Mishnah draws a distinction between Ma'os S'tumin and Ma'os Mefurashin. What is ...

1. ... 'Ma'os S'tumin'?

2. ... 'Ma'os Mefurashin'?

2. ... the money for the Chatas in the latter?

(c)What does the Tana mean when he says 'Lo Nehenin ve'Lo Mo'alin?

(d)The money for the Olah is used to purchase an Olah. What if someone derives personal benefit from it?

(e)What happens to the money for the Shelamim?

9)

(a)In a case where the woman designated, not animals, but money with which to purchase her Korbanos, the Mishnah draws a distinction between ...

1. ... 'Ma'os S'tumin' - money that has not been specified (for which Korban it has been designated).

2. ... and 'Ma'os Mefurashin' - money which has been specified.

(b)The ...

1. ... former - goes to Nedavah (See Tiferes Yisrael).

2. ... money for the Chatas in the latter - goes to the Yam-ha'Melach.

(c)When the Tana says 'Lo Nehenin ve'Lo Mo'alin, he means - that although it is not subject to Me'ilah (if someone uses it [See Tos. Yom-Tov), the Rabbanan forbade one to use it.

(d)The money for the Olah is used to purchase an Olah. If someone derives personal benefit from it - he is Chayav Me'ilah.

(e)The money for the Shelamim is used - to purchase a Shelamim (See Tos. Yom-Tov [but not loaves of bread]), which is brought on the Mizbe'ach.

(a)The Tana Kama and Rebbi Akiva argue over when a Nazir can no longer annul his wife's Nezirus. According to the Tana Kama, it is from the moment the blood of one of his Korbanos has been sprinkled. What does Rebbi Akiva say?

(b)What is the reason of ...

1. ... the Tana Kama?

2. ... Rebbi Akiva?

(c)The Tana Kama confines this however, to 'Tiglachas ha'Taharah' (where his wife is concluding her Nezirus Taharah). But by 'Tiglachas ha'Tum'ah', the husband is permitted to annul her Nezirus even later than that (See Tos. Yom-Tov). Why is that?

10)

(a)The Tana Kama and Rebbi Akiva argue over when a Nazir can no longer annul his wife's Nezirus. According to the Tana Kama, it is from the moment the blood of one of his Korbanos has been sprinkled. Rebbi Akiva says - even if one of the Korbanos has merely been Shechted.

(b)The reason of ...

1. ... the Tana Kama is - because since sprinkling the blood of any one the Korbanos permits her to drink wine, it is no longer a Neder of Inuy Nefesh.

2. ... Rebbi Akiva is - because of the loss to Hekdesh (See Tos. Yom-Tov.

(c)The Tana Kama confines this however, to 'Tiglachas ha'Taharah' (where his wife was concluding her Nezirus Taharah). But by 'Tiglachas ha'Tum'ah', the husband is permitted to annul her Nezirus even later than that (See Tos. Yom-Tov) - because, seeing as she is obligated to start all over again, he can claim that he does not want to live with a 'disgusting' woman who does not drink wine (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

11)

(a)Rebbi maintains that even in the case of Tiglachas ha'Toharah, he may nullify his wife's Nezirus after she has brought her Korbanos. Why is that?

(b)How do the Chachamim counter that?

(c)Like whom is the Halachah in the Machlokes between ...

1. ... Rebbi Akiva and the Rabbanan?

2. ... Rebbi and the Rabbanan?

11)

(a)Rebbi however, maintains that even in the case of Tiglachas ha'Taharah, he may annul his wife's Nezirus after she has brought her Korbanos - because he can claim that he does not want to live with a bald woman.

(b)The Chachamim however, counter - that she can wear a wig (Se Tos. Yom-Tov).

(c)The Halachah in the Machlokes between ...

1. ... Rebbi Akiva and the Rabbanan is - like the Rabbanan.

2. ... Rebbi and the Rabbanan is - like the Rabbanan.

(b)On what two conditions do we not contend with their objections?

(b)We do not contend with their objections however - if either the son began to observe the Dinim of Nezirus or he verbally accepted the Nezirus.

14)

(a)What about the Korbanos that the father subsequently designated at the termination of the Nezirus, if, for one of the above reasons, the Nezirus is invalidated?

3. ... the Shelamim?

(c)What is the time-period for eating the Shelamim?

(d)What about the loaves of bread that a Nazir normally brings?

14)

(a)If, for one of the above reasons, the Nezirus is invalidated, the Korbanos that the father subsequently designated at the termination of the Nezirus - become invalid (to be brought as the Korbanos of a Nazir) too.

1. ... the Chatas - must be thrown into the Yam ha'Melach ...

2. ... the Olah - is used to purchase an Olah, which is brought on the Mizbe'ach, and ...

3. ... the Shelamim - to purchase a Shelamim ... .

(c)The difference between the money of the Chatas and the Olah that one purchases with the money of the Olah is - that whereas the former is not subject to Me'ilah (even though mi'de'Rabbanan one may not benefit from it), the latter is.

(d)The Shelamim may be eaten -for one day and a night.

(e)The Lachmei Todah - are not brought.
