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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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): Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Moshe Taragin Daf 22b - Who is Qualified to Draft a Get Lishma? Having outlined different purposes which the requirement of lishma during the composition (ketiva) process might serve, this shiur will study the individuals who are qualified to draft a get. Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Moshe Taragin Daf 23a - Non-Jews and Minors as Agents in the Delivery of a Get Having discussed who may write a get, the following mishna (23a) lists people who are suitable to deliver a get. Masekhtot - Iyun
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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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). Masekhtot - Iyun
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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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. Masekhtot - Iyun
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.” Masekhtot - Iyun
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). Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Yosef Zvi Rimon Presumption of Life (28a) The Mishna (Gittin 28a) says that when the get is given to the woman by an agent, we see the husband as having a presumption of life, even if the agent leaves him when he is elderly or ill, and therefore we see the woman as a divorced woman and exempt her from levirate marriage. Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Yair Kahn Gittin 28b – One Who Has Been Led Out to Execution Regarding one who has been led out to execution, who according to the Mishna, we only suspect that in fact he has been killed, but we do not assume this with certainty ... Masekhtot - Iyun
Rav Yair Kahn Gittin 29a – If the Bearer of a Get Falls Ill The Gemara (ad loc.) discusses whether the possibility of sending the get by another person exists only in an emergency situation, e.g. where the original agent falls ill and is incapable of delivering it himself, or whether falling ill is just an example coming to explain why the agent cannot deliver the get himself, but in fact the get is valid even if the original agent sends it by another person, even though he did not fall ill. Rav Kahana establishes that sending the get by way of another person is valid only if the first agent fell ill. Masekhtot - Iyun
