1. While the Kohanim who did not know the twelve letter name of Hashem recited the four letter name of Hashem with a song they recited furtively the 12 letter name of Hashem so that it will not be heard by anyone.

R. Yehoshuah Ben Levi says that Kesef purifies Mamze’irim. Rashi says that the Mamze’irim intermarried with Kosher families by way of their money and in the future they will not be separated since they are already mixed in with other families. However, the Rif learns that R. Yehoshuah Ben Levi holds like R. Tarfon who said preciously that Mamze’irim can becomes Tahor by means of marry a maidservant. The child born from a maidservant it is a servant and when he is freed he is a Yisra’el and he not a Mamazer. Therefore with Kesef a Mamzer can buy a maidservant and marry her and than his children will be Tahor.


All families are b’Chazakas Kosher and it is permitted to marry them from them l’Chatchilah even so if you see two families fighting with one another or two people fighting with one another or you see a family which is constantly in confrontations with others or you see a person who is constantly fighting with everyone and is very brazen one should be suspicious of his lineage and stay away for them because these things are Simanei Pesul. (Shulchan Aruch EH 2:2)
