Ketubot 92: Buyers and Creditors
The case of a man who sold the rights to his mother's ketubah - on the presumption that she'll actually get it. And on the basis that he's not backing out even if his mother objects to it, but the son himself objected, once she died - as if on her behalf. Plus, what happens with the transfer of property with and without a guarantee for the purchase? Also, determining the extent of the rights of one who has purchased property with a guarantee, despite a creditor coming after the seller. What's the order for collection? Plus, a brief look at the Rishonim on this case.
Ketubot 91: Repossession
Defining "motar dinar." Also, a mishnah that delves into cases where motar dinar is relevant, and how it's applied. Plus, a mnemonic that is a guide for the topics going forward. Leading to discussion of the case of a buyer of mansions off a debtor, and how to handle the inheritance of debt.
Ketubot 90: Inheritance and Debt-Collection
Dedicated to the complete and speedy recovery of Noa bat Tova. || We're ending a chapter and beginning a chapter, with mishnayot at both points. The last mishnah of chapter 9: Being a minor isn't a free-for-all, in terms of getting out of responsibilities - in this case, specifically, a ketubah. Likewise, a non-Jew who comes into a marriage with a contract and that is upheld even in the Jewish context. Plus a discussion on how to read the mishnah - was it misread to be too specific about the ketubah. Also, the first mishnah of the 10th chapter: when one has more than one wife, how the ketubot are doled out, in the event of the husband's death. Also, what happens if one of the wives dies first. And the parallel to collecting or paying a debt, regardless. Plus, 3 different principles that are learned from the cases in the mishnah, in terms of the rights of inheritance and the order of it.
Ketubot 89: Why We Want Paperwork
A new mishnah - a case of a woman who has her get, but has not yet received her ketubah. She's entitled to it, and he can't just claim he already paid it, at least not without taking an oath. Plus, a pruzbol situation. Note that in the "time of danger," when there were decrees against mitzvot, the Jews would destroy the documents, and being able to procure them became obsolete, during that time. Also, one can bring witnesses to attest to the fact that the couple no longer lives together, etc., if she wants to collect her ketubah after divorce AND death. Plus, the need for a receipt. And another mishnah: a woman who has 2 bills of divorce and 2 ketubot - remarriage to the same marriage, and divorce again.
Ketubot 88: He Said, She Said (or He Said, or They Said)
More on how a woman collects her ketubah. And more on when she's collecting from a property with a lien on it, in comparison to orphans who collect their inheritance from property with a lien on it - by taking an oath. Plus, how loans are parallel cases in terms of taking an oath - how should such an oath be formulated? Also, analyzing R. Shimon's position from the mishnah, with parallels to the disagreement of "Hanan and the sons of the kohanim gedolim."
Ketubot 87: Divorce Court (as it were)
What if a woman needs to take an oath to receive her ketubah? What if the husband stipulates that she'll never need to take an oath? And what do you do if you need to collect the debt from a case where no oath is possible? Especially if orphans are involved. Plus, when a woman gets a partial payment, for example, who is then responsible for proving either she is still owed more or that she is not? Also, what happens if the woman accepted a partial payment of her ketubah, and she did so before witnesses? Cam we assume that all of it was paid, whether before witnesses or not? Are they trying to swindle each other or is the disagreement sincere? Plus, a comparison to oath-taking in the context of debtors and creditors, in civil matters. Plus another comparison to transactional cases that don't need witnesses.
Such a great tool for daf yomi study
This podcast has helped my circle of friends learning DY so much. We all use it a little differently. I so appreciate the time and care that the hosts put in. I know it isn’t easy. The daf waits for no one!
Great content and illuminating discussions, but audio is so bad
You need a sound engineer. The quality of the recordings is abysmal.
But please slow-down.
When I listen, I imagine you are talking while constantly peering over your shoulder to check a clock as you think, “I’m late!! I’m late!!”
Wouldn’t it be better to instead slow-down and “savor” every word of these beautiful texts?
