שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Daf 23a - The Relationship between Principal and Agent Having explained the disqualification of a cheresh (deaf-mute), shoteh (mental deficient) or katan (minor)from serving as an agent in the divorce process, the Gemara now ponders the reason an eved, cannot serve in this capacity.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Lo Chazra Shelichut etzel Ha-baal (24a) The Gemara in our passage assumes, as a simple matter, that shelichut where an agent cannot return to the sender is invalid. This is why a woman cannot be both her husband’s delivering agent (sheliach holakha) and her own receiving agent (sheliach kabbala).
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Rei’ach Ha-get — Scent of Divorce (24a-25a) Our Mishna brings a number of examples of gittin which are invalid because they are not “lishma,” “for her name,” a requirement derived from the term “lah,” “for her,” which the Torah uses in the context of divorce.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Understanding Bereira (25a-26a) Our passage deals with the issue of bereira and the possibility to distinguish in this law between dependence on one’s own prerogative and dependence on anothers’ prerogative.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Bereira Continued (25a-26a) In the previous shiur, we explained that even though a stipulation may be based on something which will happen in the future, this stipulation is not dependent on the law of bereira. This is because the law of bereira is only relevant when a characteristic element is missing from the act or the effectuation, while a stipulation is dependent on an external factor.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn The Tofes of the Get (26a-26b) Our passage indicates, apparently, that the rules of writing a get are relevant only to the toref, the toref, the personalized essence, not the tofes (“typos” in Greek), the standardized part.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein A Lost Get (27a-28a) The Mishna sets down the rule that if a get is lost, “if one finds it immediately, it is valid, and if not, it is invalid; if one finds it in a sack or box, if he recognizes it, it is valid.”
שיעורי טקסט Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Identifying Marks (27a-27b) The passage on 27a deals with a lost get, and one of the ways to return a get to its rightful owner is the method which is utilized for returning all sorts of lost objects: identifying marks (simanim or simanin; singular, siman).
