DAF DISCUSSIONS - NEDARIM 43

Rafi Magid asked:

shwelah lahalacha:

If i am saying: "IM ANI NISHBA LECHA..." is it a shvuah or not?

Rafi

We forwarded your question to Rabbi Yisrael Feinhandler, who replied:

Dear Rafi, Since the person did not say that he wishes to swear, it is not called swearing. Here the language is that he is saying that he is willing to swear, and not that he is swearing.

Best wishes,

Rabbi Israel P. Feinhandler
