KESUVOS 57 - Two weeks of study material have been dedicated by Mrs. Estanne Abraham Fawer to honor the Yahrzeit of her father, Rav Mordechai ben Eliezer Zvi (Rabbi Morton Weiner) Z'L, who passed away on 18 Teves 5760. May the merit of supporting and advancing Dafyomi study -- which was so important to him -- during the weeks of his Yahrzeit serve as an Iluy for his Neshamah.

3)[line 26]לפרנס את עצמהL'FARNES ES ATZMAH- to [work and] provide herself with her jewelry


4)[line 5]משתעי איניש הכיMISHTA'I INISH HACHI?- does a person talk like that?

7)[line 16]פוסקיןPOSKIN- designate a marriage

8)[line 19]מעיילא פחדא מהשתאME'AILA PACHDA ME'HASHTA- from now [when they arrange the marriage while she is still a minor] a fear will come upon her

10)[line 23]כתבועהK'TEVU'AH- like an Arusah who was requested to prepare her jewelry for the wedding

11)[line 42]שמא ימזגו לה כוס בבית אביהSHEMA YIMZEGU LAH KOS B'VEIS AVIHA- perhaps they will mix her a cup [of Terumah wine, by putting water into the wine] in her father's house, and she will give some of it to her brothers or sisters. (The reason the Gemara mentions a drink, as opposed to a food, of Terumah, is because it is easier for her to give a drink to others than to share a food with them, so there is more cause for concern that she might share a drink (RITVA). Alternatively, the reason it mentions specifically "mixing" a drink of wine of Terumah is because when taking unmixed wine, it is hard to guess how much wine will be produced after mixing. Because of this there is a good chance that she will pour more wine than necessary. Once she sees that she has more than necessary, and that she cannot return it to the jug since it is already mixed, she might give it to her brothers and sisters to drink (SHITAH MEKUBETZES).)
