DAF DISCUSSIONS - KESUVOS 98

Rafi Magid asked:

(b) A woman seized a silver cup towards payment of her

Kesuvah, and demanded food.

1. (Rava): The orphans must feed her - no one rules as

R. Shimon, who says that being owed part of the

Kesuvah is not as being owed the entire Kesuvah.

(c) Question (Rabah Brei d'Rava): A widow that sells outside

of Beis Din - must she swear?

THAT DOSEN'T FIT WHAT WE SAID FORMELY -

(Ravina): This only applies to food - but if she seized

to collect her Kesuvah, we take them from her.

AND WE ADDED:

Rava taught as Ravina.

The Kollel replies:

See the NIMUKEI YOSEF at the beginning of the Perek who cites the RIF who says that the case of the silver cup is referring to where she seized it when the husband was still alive . The Halachah that Tefisah only works for Mezonos and not for her Kesuvah refers when she seized the item after the husband died (as Tosfos on 96a mentions).
