|12th CYCLE DEDICATION|
SOTAH 26-28 - A week of study material has been dedicated by Mrs. Rita Grunberger of Queens, N.Y., in loving memory of her husband, Reb Yitzchok Yakov (Irving) ben Eliyahu Grunberger. Irving Grunberger helped many people quietly in an unassuming manner and is dearly missed by all who knew him. His Yahrzeit is 10 Sivan.
If the husband is guilty of a sin the Mei Sotah will not affect his wife. (1)
The Mei Sotah affects both the Sotah and the Bo'el.
A Sotah is forbidden to her husband and to the Bo'el.
The Kohen notifies the Sotah that the stomach is stricken first followed by the thigh. (2)
A Sotah is prohibited from eating Terumah. (3)
A divorcee may eat Terumah but she may not marry a Kohen. (4)
A Sotah may not marry a Kohen.
If a married woman had relations with another man b'Shogeg or b'Ones she is permitted to her husband. (5)
A Safek Tum'ah in Reshus ha'Yachid is Tamei if the object of the Safek has Da'as. (6)
A Safek Tum'ah in Reshus ha'Rabim is Tahor.
A BIT MORE
1. If he had relations with his wife after the Setirah the Mei Sotah will not have any affect.
2. Even though in one of the Pesukim it states the thigh first, however the water affects the Sotah as it goes down her throat and it first goes into the stomach before going into her thigh.
3. Even if she is a Bas Kohen or the wife of a Kohen.
4. If a divorcee is a Bas Kohen and she does not have any children from a non-Kohen she may go back to eating Terumah after she is divorced.
5. However if she is married to a Kohen she is prohibited to her husband.
6. If the object of the Safek does not have Da'as a Safek Tum'ah is Tahor even in Reshus ha'Yachid.
SHOGEG OR ONES
If a Sotah is Shogeg or Ones she is permitted to her husband if he is not a Kohen. If the Sotah is Shogeg and the Bo'el is Mezid the water will have no affect at all and even the Bo'el will survive. When the Bo'el was Mezid even though the Sotah was Shogeg and is permitted to her husband however she is forbidden to the Bo'el since he was Mezid. (Meiri in the name of the Yerushalmi)
Any man who was Bo'el a prohibited Bi'ah any time after he became a Gadol the Mei Sotah will not affect his wife. Even if he had relations with his Arusah in the house of his father-in-law which is forbidden mid'Rabanan the water will not affect his wife. (Rambam Hilchos Sotah 2:8)
