NIDAH 65 - Dedicated l'Iluy Nishmas Mrs. Lily (Leah bas Pinchas) Kornfeld, who passed away on 8 Av 5765, by their daughter Shifra and family.


1. The Gemara illustrates how bad it is to twist a Halachic ruling by relating the story of the untimely death of Minyamin Saksanah.
2. Rav: Once a person loses his teeth when he is older, it is harder for him to make money.
3. Rebbi Chiya bar Aba: An “Onah” is a day or night. Rebbi Chana She’Una: It is half a day together with half a night.
4. The Beraisa quotes “Raboseinu” – “our Rabbis” who say that the Halachah was established to be unlike our Mishnah.
5. The Beraisa discusses a woman who sees Nidah blood whenever she has relations.


1. Minyamin wanted to extend a ruling of Rav in a way that Rav had not stated it applied. Regarding the fact that he died soon after in an untimely fashion, Shmuel stated that according to Rav, Hashem protects a righteous person from wrongdoing (in this case from his ruling being twisted in a way that he never meant in his name).
2. This is as the verse states, “And I also have given you the cleaning away of your teeth in all of your cities, and there is bread lacking in all of your places.”
3. Rav Shmuel bar Rav Yitzchak: These opinions agree with each other. When the days and nights are equal, it is either a day or a night. When they are unequal, as in the winter time when the days are short, it is half a day and half a night.
4. They say that whenever a man marries a virgin, he must separate from his wife after the first time they have relations. Rav and Shmuel concur.
5. If this happens the first three times she has relations with her new husband (and it is not blood due to any other reason), she must get divorced and marry someone else.
