NAZIR 57 (5 Cheshvan) - Dedicated in honor of the Yahrzeit of Reb Naftali ben Reb Menachem Mendel (Tuli Bodner) Z"L, who was Niftar 5 Cheshvan 5766. Tuli was an Ish Chesed and Ish Ma'aseh radiating joy whose Ahavas Yisrael knew no bounds. Dedicated by his son, Mordechai Bodner of Givat Mordechai, Yerushalayim.

SUMMARY

If one witness testifies that one of two Nezirim became Tamei and he does not know which one, the two Nezirim shall bring a Korban Tum'ah in partnership. (1)
 
After another thirty days the two Nezirim shall shave for a second time and bring a Korban Taharah in partnership. (2)
 
A Safek Tum'ah in a Reshus ha'Yachid is Tamei if there are no more than two people present. (3)
 
A Safek Tum'ah in a Reshus ha'Rabim is Tahor.
 
Shmuel holds that the prohibition of Hakafas ha'Rosh applies even when the entire head is shaved.
 
The prohibition of Hakafas ha'Rosh does not apply to a woman.
 
If a Nazir is Safek Tamei Mes and Safek Metzora Muchlat he may only eat Kodshim after 60 days and he must shave four times.
 
R. Huna says that it is forbidden for a Gadol to be Makif a Katan, but R. Ada Bar Ahavah holds that it is permitted.
 
R. Huna holds that a woman may be Makif a man, but R. Ada Bar Ahavah holds that it is forbidden.

A BIT MORE

1. After thirty days they shall shave and bring a Korban Taharah and Korban Tum'ah and each one shall say, "If I am Tamei the Korban Tum'ah is mine and the Korban Taharah is yours and if I am Tahor the Korban Taharah is mine and the Korban Tum'ah is yours."
 
2. Each one shall say, "If I was Tamei the Korban Tum'ah was mine and the Korban Taharah was yours and this is my Korban Taharah and if I was Tahor the Korban Taharah was mine and the Korban Tum'ah was yours and this is your Korban Taharah."
 
3. This is learned out from a Sotah who is regarded as Tamei even though it is only a Safek that she is Temei'ah. A Sotah is together with only one other person, therefore a Safek Tum'ah is only Tamei if there are no more than two people present.

BRIEF INSIGHT

THE TESTIMONY OF ONE WITNESS
 
If one witness testifies that one of two Nezirim became Tamei and he does not know which one, the two Nezirim shall bring a Korban Tum'ah together on condition. Tosfos says that one witness is only believed if the Nazir does not deny it. However if the Nazir denies it the witness is not believed because one witness is not believed when he is contradicted.

QUICK HALACHAH

SAFEK TUM'AH
 
If one of two Nezirim became Tamei and we do not know which one of them is Tamei how do they bring their Korbanos? They shall bring a Korban Taharah and Korban Tum'ah upon the completion of their Nezirus and each one shall say, "If I am Tamei the Korban Tum'ah is mine and the Korban Taharah is yours and if I am Tahor the Korban Taharah is mine and the Korban Tum'ah is yours." They shall then count another period of Nezirus and bring again a Korban Taharah. Each one shall say, "If I was the Tamei the Korban Tum'ah was mine and the Korban Taharah was yours and this is my Korban Taharah and if I was Tahor the Korban Taharah was mine and the Korban Tum'ah was yours and this is your Korban Taharah." This way they have not lost out from any of their Korbanos. (Rambam Hilchos Nezirus 9:14)
