1) TOSFOS DH Kol ha'Kofer b'Avodah Zarah Nikra Yehudi she'Ne'emar Iti Guvrin Yehuda'in

תוספות ד"ה כל הכופר בע"ז נקרא יהודי שנאמר איתי גוברין יהודאין

(SUMMARY: Tosfos explains the proof from the verse.)

על שם יהודי שהרי אמר בחלק (סנהדרין דף צג:) דלא הוו משבט יהודה.

(a) Explanation: This is based on the name Yehudi, for it says in Sanhedrin (93b) that they were not from Yehudah. (Rather, we must say that they are called Yehuda'in because they deny idolatry.)

2) TOSFOS DH Asher Heglah she'Galah me'Atzmo

תוספות ד"ה אשר הגלה שגלה מעצמו

(SUMMARY: Tosfos explains the source to say so.)

- ודריש ליה מדלא כתיב הוגלה.

(a) Explanation: We expound this because it did not write "Huglah" (passive tense).

3) TOSFOS DH Kidli d'Chaziri

תוספות ד"ה קדלי דחזירי

(SUMMARY: Tosfos explains that Esther did not eat pork.)

וח"ו היא לא היתה אוכלת.

(a) Explanation: Heaven forbid, she did not eat [them]!

13b----------------------------------------13b

4) TOSFOS DH v'Toveles v'Yosheves b'Cheiko Shel Mordechai

תוספות ד"ה וטובלת ויושבת בחיקו של מרדכי

(SUMMARY: Tosfos explains why she was permitted to have relations with Mordechai.)

ואם תאמר והא לא הי' שם הבחנת שלש' חדשים שהרי בכל יום היה אותו רשע מצוי אצלה

(a) Question: There were not three months of Havchanah! (A woman may not have relations with her husband within three months of Bi'ah with another man, lest she gave birth nine months after the first Bi'ah, and we will be unsure who is the father.) That Rasha (Achashverosh) was frequent [intimate] with her every day!

וי"ל שהיתה משמשת במוך.

(b) Answer: She had relations [with Achashverosh] with a wad [to absorb the semen and prevent pregnancy].

5) TOSFOS DH ha'Kesef Nasun Lecha

תוספות ד"ה הכסף נתון לך

(SUMMARY: Tosfos expounds the Gematriya of ha'Kesef.

גימטריא דהכסף עולה הע"ץ רמז לו שיתלה עליו.

(a) Observation: The Gematriya of "ha'Kesef" equals (165,) that of ha'Etz. This was a hint that he will be hung on it (a wooden gallows).
