QUESTIONS ON RASHI

4)

Rashi writes that "ha'Kerovah Elav" includes an Arusah. Does he mean that an Arus is Metamei for his Arusah, or her brother? And what is the source to say so?

1.

Moshav Zekenim (citing Yevamos 29b): An Arus is not Metamei for his Arusah. 1 Rather, her brother is Metamei for her, for he is closer to her than the Arus.

2.

Sifsei Chachamim: If the brother was forbidden, the Torah would not need to write "ha'Kerovah Elav." We would already know this from "Asher Lo Haysah l'Ish", for 'Havayah' implies Kidushin.


1

Moshav Zekenim, Da'as Zekenim (2), Hadar Zekenim (2): Once she has Nisu'in, her husband is closer to her (a man and his wife are called "Besar Echad" - Bereishis 2:24), so he buries her, even if he is a Kohen.
