12th Cycle Dedication

ERCHIN 6-9 - Two weeks of study material have been dedicated by Mrs. Estanne Abraham Fawer to honor the twelfth 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.


1. The Gemara discusses what happens if an ox falls on someone who was digging a pit (unlawfully) in the public domain.
2. The Gemara discusses whether a Korban may be offered on behalf of someone being led out to be executed.
3. The Gemara discusses what is done with a pregnant woman who is about to be executed by Beis Din.
4. If a person pledged the highest set value and paid in full before he became rich, he owes no money to Hekdesh.
5. The Mishnah discusses what happens when a person pledges a high set value and he owns only five Sela.


1. The law is that if the fall of the ox resulted in the death of the digger, the owner of the ox is exempt. The law also is that if, before the digger died of his injuries, Beis Din ruled that he is liable for the death of the ox because he had no right to dig such a pit in the public domain, his heirs must pay the value of the ox to its owner.
2. If his Korban was already slaughtered, then the sprinkling of the blood and other Avodos are performed. If he sinned accidentally and had not yet brought a Korban, then it is considered as though he sinned accidentally while being led to be executed; he is taken out to be executed and we do not wait for him to offer a Korban.
3. If she is being led out to be executed, we do not wait for her to have the baby. If she was already on the birthing stone, we wait for the baby to be born and live before executing the mother.
4. Although, before he became rich, he was obligated to pay only one Sela instead of 50 Sela, since he paid his debt in full he obtained the price for a poor person. If he did not pay the entire Sela before he became rich, he must pay the additional 49 Sela, in addition to the rest of his first Sela.
5. Rebbi Meir: He pays one Sela, since the Torah states that a poor person who cannot afford the set amount may pay one Sela. Chachamim: He pays all five to Hekdesh, since the one Sela mentioned by the Torah is a minimum amount he must pay to fulfill his vow.
