See Background to 17:18.

2)[line 6]בבעלת גטBA'ALAS HA'GET (GET YEVAMIM)

(a)Just as Chazal enacted Kidushei Ma'amar for a Yevamah, so, too, they enacted a Get Yevamim.

(b)If one of the surviving brothers performed Kidushei Ma'amar with the Yevamah and then he decides to release her from the Zikas Yevamim through Chalitzah, he must give her a Get Yevamim besides the Chalitzah.

(c)If the Yavam gives a Get to the Yevamah without first having performed Ma'amar, it becomes prohibited for him mid'Rabanan to perform Yibum with her, and he must perform Chalitzah.

(a)See Background to 2:15.

(b)If a person commits two capital offenses, he is put to death with the more stringent of the two. If a number of people were sentenced to die through different death penalties, and it is not known which sentence was passed upon which person, Beis Din administers to all of them the least stringent of the death penalties to which they were sentenced.

(c)Chazal instituted a practice of burying people who were sentenced to capital punishment in two different cemeteries: one for those who were put to death by Sekilah and Sereifah and one for those who were put to death by Hereg and Chenek.

15)[line 33]מליקהMELIKAH

(a)Birds that were brought as Korbanos were not slaughtered from the neck. Instead, the Kohen performed Melikah by cutting the back of the neck of the bird with his right thumbnail, making sure to cut both Simanim (the trachea and the esophagus) of the Olas ha'Of or one Siman (either one) of the Chatas ha'Of. When performing Melikah on the Chatas ha'Of he would make sure not to sever the entire neck of the bird.

(b)The Kohanim ate the meat of the Korban Chatas. If Melikah is done to a bird that is not a Korban, the bird becomes a Neveilah and is forbidden to eat.
