***** Perek Raban Gamliel *****
(a) Raban Gamliel holds 'Ein Get Achar Get, ve'Lo Ma'amar Achar Ma'amar,
ve'Lo Be'ilah Achar Be'ilah ve'Lo Chalitzah Achar Chalitzah'.
'Ein Get Achar Get' mean?
(b) What is his reason for saying ...
(c) The Chachamim say 'Yesh Get Achar Get, ve'Yesh Ma'amar Achar Ma'amar'.
Why is that?
- ... 'Ein Get Achar Get, ve'Lo Ma'amar Achar Ma'amar'?
- ... 've'Lo Be'ilah Achar Be'ilah'?
- ... 've'Lo Chalitzah Achar Chalitzah'?
(d) What do the Rabbanan say about Be'ilah and Chalitzah?
(a) What is the significance of the Tana's question 'Keitzad' (which does
not have its usual connotation)?
(b) What can not be removed by ...
(c) What will be the Din if the Yavam ...
- ... Chalitzah?
- ... a Get?
(d) And what if he gave her a Get and made Ma'amar ...
- ... made Ma'amar with the Yevamah and gave her a Get?
- ... made Ma'amar and Chalitzah?
- ... made Ma'amar and Be'ilah?
- ... according to the Rabbanan?
- ... according to Raban Gamliel?
(a) If he gave her a Get and performed Be'ilah, he requires a Get and
Why is a Get not sufficient, seeing as, once he performs
Be'ilah, the Yevamah becomes his wife?
(b) Since the author of our Mishnah is Rebbi Akiva (as we shall soon see),
why does she require Chalitzah? Having given a Get, why is the Yevamah not
like a Chalutzah, on whom Kidushin does not take effect?
(c) If he gave her a Get and performed Chalitzah, 'Ein Achar Chalitzah
What does this mean?
(d) Why is that? Why do we not take into account the fact that the Chalitzah
was a Chalitzah Pesulah?
(a) What will be the Din if, after Chalitzah, the Yavam made Ma'amar, gave a
Get or performed Be'ilah?
Answers to questions
(b) Why can this only go according to Rebbi Akiva?
(c) What is the point of inserting the case of Get after Chalitzah (seeing
as he is forbidden to marry her relatives anyway)?
(d) And what will be the Din if after Bi'ah, he made Ma'amar, gave a Get
(for his Zikah) or performed Chalitzah? Why does the Tana follow this with
the words 'Ein Achar Chalitzah K'lum'?
(a) Is there any basic difference between the above (which speaks by one
Yavam and one Yevamah) and when one Yavam does the same with two Yevamos?
(b) If the Yavam made Ma'amar with each Yevamah, Raban Gamliel will say 'Ein
Ma'amar Achar Ma'amar'.
What do the Rabbanan hold? Why can he not perform
Yibum with either of them?
(c) And what if he made Ma'amar with one of them, and the other ...
- ... he gave a get? Why can he not perform Yibum with the Ba'alas Ma'amar?
- ... he performed Be'ilah? Why will a Get not suffice for the Ba'alas Bi'ah?
- ... he performed Chalitzah?
(a) If he gave both Yevamos a Get, both require Chalitzah (because the
Rabbanan hold 'Yesh Get Achar Get').
What if, after the Get, he made ...
(b) What is the significance of the statement (by one Yavam and two Yevamos)
- ... Bi'ah or Ma'amar with the other Yavam?
- ... Chalitzah with the other?
(c) What is the Din by 'Ba'al u'Ba'al, O Ba'al ve'Asah Ma'amar, Nasan Get
- ... 'Chalatz ve'Chalatz, Ein le'Achar Chalitzah K'lum'?

(d) What will be the Din in all of the above cases by two Yevamin and one
(a) Why does the Tana repeat 'Chalatz, ve'Asah Ma'amar, ve'Nasan Get
u'Ba'al, Ein Achar Chalitzah K'lum' (by one Yavam and one Yevamah), even
though he has already taught us this?
(b) What is the basic distinction between Chalitzah and Yibum in all of
(c) What does Rebbi Nechemyah say?
(a) From our Mishnah, it is evident that both a Get and Ma'amar are
effective by a Yevamah.

(b) And why did they institute that Bi'ah Pesulah should not be final
('Bi'ah Pesulah Yesh Acharehah K'lum') in the case of ...
- ... a Get?
