Masekhtot - Iyun
Teacher Title Abstract
שיעורי טקסט Rav Ezra Bick Daf 82A Except for Ploni We are beginning the study of Masechet Gittin. We will begin with the 9th chapter, which, even though it is the end of the masechet, deals in the most fundamental manner with the definition of divorce – the concept of kritut.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Ezra Bick Gittin Chapter 9 Exclusion in Kiddushin (82b) In last week’s shiur, we saw the position of the Rashba daf 82b regarding the statement of the gemara regarding a certain case: “Shimon’s kiddushin did not take effect (lo ahanu).” The Ritva claimed that kiddushin which do not prohibit have no validity at all. From this we deduced that that, according to the Ritva, the act of kiddushin is an act of issur v’heter, and therefore, if there is no new consequence at all in the realm of issur, the intended kiddushin are completely meaningless.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Ezra Bick Gittin Chapter 9 Four Elderly Sages (83a) The gemara (83a) quotes a braita which preserves a discussion of the tannaim regarding R. Eliezer’s position. Four elderly Sages (the list lengthens in the end to six elderly Sages) entered the discussion to dispute R. Eliezer’s statements, each one with a different claim or question. We will discuss each claim, in an attempt to deduce the logical claim or the halakhic concept which lies behind the opposition to allowing excluding someone from gerushin.
שיעורי טקסט Yeshiva Staff Gittin Chapter 9 (83b) Divorce and Marriage for a Specified Time Is a kinyan for a specified time possible also in the cases of betrothal and divorce? Can a man betroth a woman, and establish from the outset that she will be his wife only for a specific period of time, or can he decide to divorce his wife for a limited period of time, at the end of which she will once again be his wife without a second act of betrothal?
שיעורי טקסט Rav Baruch Weintraub Gittin Chapter 9 (84a) “On condition that you marry Ploni” and “on condition” stipulations "We learned in a beraita: This is your get on condition that you marry Ploni – the woman should not marry Ploni, but if she does so, she need not leave him” (Gittin 84a).
שיעורי טקסט Rav Ezra Bick Gittin Chapter 9 (84b) What should he do? Take it from her According to the Rabbanan, a get with a shiyur (exclusion) is invalid. The mishna (82a) asks “what should he do?” The mishna answers: “Take it away from her and give it to her again, and say to her: ‘You are permitted to everyone.’”
שיעורי טקסט Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Gittin Chapter 2 – Introduction (17a) Divorce By Way Of A Get In its definition of divorce, the Torah speaks of two elements: 1) "a bill of divorce"; and 2) "and send her out of his house." So too later in the passage (v. 3), when the Torah discusses what happens when the second husband divorces the woman, both of these expressions are used. This being the case, we must examine what is the essence of the divorce process: Is it "the bill of divorce," or perhaps the sending out of the woman from the man's house?
שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin The Requirement of Dating a Get (17a - 18a) This shiur will address the role and function of the 'date' within a 'get.' Though we might have expected the date to constitute a cardinal element, the gemara's discussion implies a subsidiary role. Keep in mind that as a 'get' is not primarily employed in collecting funds the need for a date is less than obvious.

שיעורי טקסט Rav Amnon Bazak Daf 18a: “When do we start counting regarding Gittin?” In Gittin 18a a dispute of the amoraim is cited regarding the question “when do we start counting in gittin?” This is to say, from when do we start counting the three months which the Sages obligated a woman who becomes divorced to wait until remarrying – from when the get was written, or from when it was given. In order to understand the reasoning behind this dispute, we must first examine the definition of this obligation – the law of “havchana” – distinguishing.

שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Daf 20a-b - Drafting a Get through Engraving Having digressed to discuss the signing of a get, the gemara returns to the issue of composing the get. The gemara derives from the phrase "Ve-khatav lah," "And he must write for her" (Devarim 25:1, 3), that the text must be written rather than cut.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Daf 20b - Partially Withholding Delivery of a Get The Gemara (20b) describes a situation in which a husband stipulates that he intends to transfer the actual text of a get while retaining ownership upon the paper on which this text is written. In such an instance of "neyar she-li," the divorce is disqualified by the Gemara; this provokes an important debate among the Rishonim as to the exact reason for this rule.

שיעורי טקסט Rav Ezra Bick Daf 21a - Conveying Ownership of a Get to a Woman Rava explains that a get may be issued by placing it in the husband’s chatzer (“courtyard”) and thereafter conveying the courtyard to the woman’s ownership.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Daf 21a - Reformatting a Get after its Composition The mishna on 19a permits the drafting of a get upon the hand of a servant or the horn of a cow, so long as the entire servant or cow is subsequently transferred. For his part, Rabbi Yosei Ha-gelili invalidates these media for writing a get since he interprets the word "sefer" (Devarim 24:1, 3) literally: a get must resemble a formal document.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Daf 22a - The Dispute Between R’ Meir & R’ Elazar The Gemara (daf 22b) ascribes the dispute here to the dispute between Rabbi Elazar and Rabbi Meir as to which set of witnesses effectuate the transaction intended by a document - the eidei mesirah (“witnesses of delivery” who witness the physical transfer of the get between the two parties) or the eidei chatima (“witnesses of signing” who sign the document):
