Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Nazir 30
1) A FATHER IMPOSING VOWS ON A SON
(a) Answer: Rather, Chanina said, if my father cannot make me
a Nazir (because I am a full adult), I accept Nezirus on
2) SHAVING ON THE FATHER'S MONEY
1. If he brought 2 hairs before his father made him a
Nazir - he is a Nazir because of his own acceptance.
(b) Question: What if he brought 2 hairs during the Nezirus?
2. If he brought 2 hairs after finishing Nezirus - he
was a Nazir because of his father.
1. We understand according to R. Yosi b'Rebbi Yehudah,
who holds that a man can make his son a Nazir until
the age of vows.
(c) Answer: Yes - according to Rebbi, he must act as a Nazir
twice (if the hairs came in the middle).
i. If the father's Nezirus started, it does not
cease when the son reaches the age of vows.
2. But according to Rebbi - the father's Nezirus ceases
if he brings 2 hairs - he should also have to
conduct as a Nazir because of his own acceptance!
(a) (Mishnah): A son can shave on his father's money (that
was designated for the sacrifices he brings when he
shaves), but not a daughter;
1. Reuven's was a Nazir; he set aside money for shaving
and died. His son said, I accept Nezirus on
condition that I shave on father's money - R. Yosi
says, he may not shave on this money, it goes to
Nedavah (to buy communal burnt-offerings);
(b) (Gemara): What is the source that only a son may shave on
his father's money?
2. If Reuven and his son were both Nezirim, and Reuven
designated money and died, his son may shave on the
money. (Tosfos - many texts say, in the former case
he may shave, not in the latter case).
(c) Answer (R. Yochanan): This is s tradition from Moshe from
(d) Objection: This is obvious - the son inherits the father,
not the daughter!
(e) Answer: The tradition is needed for a girl with no
1. One might have thought, the law applies to any heir
- we hear, this is not so.
(f) Question #1: Do other Tana'im argue on R. Yosi?
(g) Question #2: If others argue - do they argue on law 1
(when the son accepted Nezirus posthumously), or on law 2
(he was a Nazir in his lifetime)?
(h) Answer ((to both questions) Beraisa - R. Yosi): The case
of a man that shaves on his father's money if he accepted
Nezirus after his father died;
1. If he and his father were Nezirim, and his father
died, if his father designated money, it goes to
Nedavah; (This text fits nicely with the text Tosfos
(i) R. Eliezer, R. Meir and R. Yehudah say, this (latter) is
the case of one that shaves on his father's money.
(j) Question (Rabah): If 2 sons are Nezirim, what is the law?
1. May the 1st one to shave use all the money?
(k) Question #1 (Rava): (If they are as heirs,) if one of the
brothers is a firstborn (who inherits a double portion),
what is the law?
2. Or, are they heirs, and each may shave with the half
1. Does the tradition say that each shaves on half?
(l) Question #1: If his father is an eternal Nazir, and he is
a standard Nazir, or vice-versa - may he shave on his
2. Or, does each shave on the amount he inherits?
3. Question #2 (Rava): If each shaves on what he
inherits - is this regarding Chulin, or even
i. Does he only get to buy sacrifices from his
extra share, but the meat (after they are
offered) is split equally?
ii. Or, since he gets a double share to buy
sacrifices, he also gets a double share of the
1. Does the tradition only apply to standard Nezirus?
2. Or, is there no distinction?
3. Question #2 (Rav Ashi): If there is no distinction -
if his father is a Tamei Nazir, and the son is
Tahor, or vice-versa - may he shave on the money?
4. This question is unresolved.
