1)

(a)When is a Nazir who declares S'tam Nezirus obligated to shave?

(b)What if he shaves on the thirtieth day?

(c)Why is that? On what principle is it based?

(d)In which case will he not be Yotzei if he shaves on the thirtieth day?

(e)Why does 'Miktzas ha'Yom ke'Kulo' not apply here too?

1)

(a)A Nazir who declares S'tam Nezirus is obligated to shave - on the thirty-first day.

(b)If he shaves on the thirtieth day however - he is Yotzei ...

(c)... due to the principle - 'Miktzas ha'Yom ke'Kulo'.

(d)He will not be Yotzei if he shaves on the thirtieth day however - if he initially declared 'Hareini Nazir SheloshimYom!'

(e)'Miktzas ha'Yom ke'Kulo' does not apply here too - since, by virtue of his adding Sheloshim Yom', the Noder obviously had in mind thirty complete days.

2)

(a)When must a person perform the two necessary shavings if he declares two periods of Nezirus S'tam?

(b)What if he shaved the first time on the thirtieth day?

(c)On what basis is he Yotzei if he shaved on the fifty-ninth day?

(d)What did Rebbi Papyas testify in this regard?

2)

(a)A person who declares two S'tam Nezirus must perform the two necessary shavings - on the thirty-first and the sixty-first days (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

(b)If he shaved the first time on the thirtieth day - then he shaves the second time on the sixtieth.

(c)If he shaved on the fifty-ninth day he is Yotzei - because the thirtieth day of the first Nezirus is also the first day of the second Nezirus.

(d)Rebbi Papyas testified - this very ruling in all its detail.

3)

(a)In a case where a Nazir becomes Tamei Meis on the thirtieth day of his Nezirus, the Tana Kama rules that he loses his Nezirus and must begin all over again. Why do we not apply the principle 'Miktzas ha'Yom ke'Kulo'?

(b)What does Rebbi Eliezer say?

(c)Why is that?

(d)What if the same thing happens to a Nazir who declared 'Hareini Nazir Sheloshim Yom!'?

(e)Why is that?

3)

(a)In a case where a Nazir becomes Tamei Meis on the thirtieth day of his Nezirus, the Tana Kama states he loses his Nezirus and must begin all over again. We only apply the principle 'Miktzas ha'Yom ke'Kulo' - there where one subsequently shaved and brought one's Korbanos on the same day, which is obviously not possible in this case.

(b)According to Rebbi Eliezer - he only negates seven days ...

(c)... because he holds 'Miktzas ha'Yom ke'Kulo' even in this case, rendering it as if his Tum'ah occurred after 'M'los'.

(d)If however, the same thing happened to a Nazir who declared 'Hareini Nazir Sheloshim Yom!' - then Rebbi Eliezer will concede that he loses his Nezirus and must begin all over again ...

(e)... because, as we learned earlier, one he mentions 'thirty days', he has in mind a complete thirty days, and 'Miktzas ha'Yom ... ' is no longer applicable.

4)

(a)How does Rebbi Eliezer learn his initial ruling from the Pasuk "ve'Zos Toras ha'Nazir be'Yom M'los"?

(b)How do the Rabbanan learn their ruling from the same Pasuk?

(c)Like whom is the Halachah in the current Machlokos between the Rabbanan and Rebbi Eliezer?

4)

(a)Rebbi Eliezer learns his ruling from the Pasuk "ve'Zos Toras ha'Nazir be'Yom M'los" - which implies that if a Nazir becomes Tamei on Yom M'los, he loses the days of a S'tam Nazir (thirty days ...

(b)... whereas the Rabbanan explain - that he loses the days of Nezirus that he undertook.

(c)The Halachah in the various Machlokos between the Rabbanan and Rebbi Eliezer is - like the Chachamim.

5)

(a)What do Rebbi Eliezer and the Rabbanan respectively, rule with regard to a Nazir who undertakes a hundred days of Nezirus and who becomes Tamei Meis on ...

1. ... the hundredth day?

2. ... the hundredth and first day?

(b)What is the Rabbanan's reason?

(c)Why do they confine the days that the Nazir loses to thirty?

(d)And what is Rebbi Eliezer's reason?

5)

(a)In a case where a Nazir who undertakes a hundred days of Nezirus and who becomes Tamei Meis on ...

1. ... the hundredth day Rebbi Eliezer and the Rabbanan respectively, simply reiterate their previous Machlokes (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

2. ... the hundred and first day - the Nazir loses thirty days according to the Chachamim, and seven, according to Rebbi Eliezer.

(b)The reason of the Rabbanan is - a decree on account of the hundredth day (where he loses all the days of his Nezirus).

(c)They confined the days that the Nazir loses to thirty - in order not to be too Machmir (See Tos. Yom-Tov & Tiferes Yisrael)

(d)Whereas Rebbi Eliezer's - follows his own reasoning, since even on the thirtieth day, he does not decree in a case where he undertakes to be a Nazir S'tam (See Tiferes Yisrael & Tos. Yom-Tov ).

(a)What is the Din regarding a case where someone declares Nezirus in a graveyard?

(b)Why is he not obligated to bring a Korban Tum'ah?

(c)What if they warned him not to become Tamei and he ignored their warning?

6)

(a)The Mishnah say rules that someone who declares Nezirus in a graveyard (See Tos. Yom-Tov & Tiferes Yisrael) - even if he remained there for thirty days, one does not deduct them from his Nezirus.

(b)He is not obligated however, to bring a Korban Tum'ah (See Tos. Yom-Tov) - because that only applies to a Nazir Tahor who becomes Tamei.

(c)If they warned him not to become Tamei and he ignored their warning - he does not bring a Korban Tum'ah.

7)

(a)The Tana now discusses what happens if the Nazir leaves the graveyard and re-enters. What is the case?

(b)Which dual ruling does the Tana issue in this case?

(c)Why does Tum'as Beis-ha'Kevaros not negate the days that he counted before re-entering the graveyard?

7)

(a)The Tana now discusses what happens if the Nazir leaves the graveyard and re-enters it. The case is - where he was then sprinkled with the ashes of the Parah Adumah on the third and seventh days, Toveled, and began counting afresh a few days late.

(b)The Tana rules in this case, that a. the days that the Nazir counted before re-entering the graveyard are counted in the days of Nezirus, and b. in the event that he becomes Tamei Meis, he will be obligated to bring a Korban Tum'ah.

(c)Tum'as Beis-ha'Kevaros does not negate them - because it only negates the twelve things that are specifically meniioned in connection with it (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

8)

(a)What does Rebbi Eliezer say about a Nazir who becomes Tamei (via a Tum'ah for which a Nazir is Chayav to shave) ...

1. ... in the current case?

2. ... in a regular case of a Nazir who becomes Tamei?

(b)How does he learn it from the Pasuk "ve'ha'Yamim ha'Rishonim Yiplu"?

(c)Like whom is the Halachah?

8)

(a)Rebbi Eliezer rules, concerning a Nazir who became Tamei (via a Tum'ah for which a Nazir is Chayav to shave) both ...

1. ... in the current case, and ...

2. ... in a regular case of Nezirus) - that he does not lose that day.

(b)He learn that from the word "Rishonim" (in the plural, in the Pasuk "ve'ha'Yamim ha'Rishonim Yiplu") - implying that it is days that he loses on account of the Tum'ah, but not just one day.

(c)The Halachah is -like Rebbi Eliezer.

(a)Why does a Nazir in Chutz la'Aretz who moves to Eretz Yisrael need to repeat his Nezirus upon moving to Eretz Yisrael?

(b)What did the Chachamim therefore decree with regard to a Nazir in Chutz la'Aretz?

(c)What do Beis Shamai rule regarding someone who undertakes a long period of Nezirus (See Tos. Yom-Tov) in Chutz la'Aretz, and who moves to Eretz Yisrael after completing it?

(d)What do Beis Hillel say?

9)

(a)A Nazir in Chutz la'Aretz who moves to Eretz Yisrael needs to repeat his Nezirus upon moving to Eretz Yisrael - because the Chachamim decreed Tum'ah in Chutz la'Aretz.

(b)The Chachamim therefore decreed that a Nazir in Chutz la'Aretz - is obligated to move to Chutz la'Aretz in order to fulfil his Nezirus (See Tos-Yov).

(c)Beis Shamai rule that if someone undertakes a long period of Nezirus (See Tos. Yom-Tov) in Chutz la'Aretz, and who moves to Eretz Yisrael (See Tos. Yom-Tov) after completing it - must observe a Nezirus of thirty days.

(d)According to Beis Hillel - he is obligated to observe the entire period that he undertook from scratch.

(b)According to the Tana Kama, what did Beis-Din decree on her when she then moved to Eretz Yisrael?

(c)What happened to her on the last day of her Nezirus?

(d)So how many years was she a Nezirah altogether?

(a)Queen Hilni undertook - a seven-year period of Nezirus if her son returned from the battlefield alive.

(b)According to the Tana Kama, when she then moved to Eretz Yisrael, Beis-Din decree on her - to observe the seven-year Nezirus period from scratch.

(c)On the last day of her Nezirus - she became Tamei, and was therefore forced to begin all over again ...

(d)... making a total of twenty-one years.

11)

(a)On what grounds does Rebbi Yehudah say that she was only a Nezirah for fourteen years?

(b)What does 'two years' then really mean?

11)

(a)Rebbi Yehudah maintains that she was only a Nezirah for two years - because he holds that Rebbi Eliezer, who ruled earlier in the Perek that someone who became Tamei on Yoim M'los, needs to observe only thirty days ...

(b)... in which case 'two years' really mean - two years plus thirty days.

(a)Beis Shamai and Beis Hillel argue over a case where two pairs of witnesses testify that Reuven declared Nezirus, only one pair says that he undertook two sets of Nezirus, and the other pair, five. What did the 'Noder' himself claim?

(b)What do ...

1. ... Beis Shamai say?

2. ... Beis Hillel say?

(c)What is Beis Hillel's reason?

12)

(a)Beis Shamai and Beis Hillel argue over a case where two pairs of witnesses testify that Reuven declared Nezirus, only one pair say that he undertook two periods of Nezirus, and the other pair, five. The 'Noder' claims - that he did not make any declaration at all (See Tos. Yom-Tov).

(b)According to Beis ...

1. ... Shamai - their testimony is invalid.

2. ...Hillel - the Noder is Chayav to observe two periods of Nezirus ...

(c)... since two is included in five (i.e. both pairs of witnesses agree that he undertook two).
