YEVAMOS 94 (15 Teves) - dedicated by Dr. Moshe and Rivka Snow in memory of Rivka's mother, Rebbetzin Leah bas Rav Yosef (Rabinowitz), the Manostrishtcher Rebbetzin, whose Yahrzeit is 15 Teves.


A woman is not believed to testify that her Yevamah died or that her sister died.
A man is not believed to testify that his brother died or that his wife died.
Rebbi Akiva maintains that a child born from an Isur Lav is a Mamzer.
Rava says that the testimony of a woman that her Yevamah died is believed. (1)
A Get that divorces a woman but does not allow her to remarry is a "Rei'ach ha'Get," and it disqualifies the woman to a Kohen.
If witnesses erroneously testify that a man's wife died and then he married her sister, he is permitted to his wife. (2)
If witnesses testify that a man's wife died and then he married her sister, and subsequently the witnesses say that she was alive at the time but now she has died, the children born before his wife died are Mamzerim.
The only Ervah who requires a Get is an Eshes Ish who remarried on the basis of the testimony of a single witness. (3)
The sister of one's divorced wife is forbidden.
Kidushin can be conditional, but not Nisu'in. (4)
Rava says that Rebbi Yishmael and Rebbi Akiva disagree about whether a relationship with a mother-in-law after the death of her daughter is punished with Sereifah.


1. This is derived from a Kal va'Chomer. If we believe her testimony regarding an Isur Kares (an Eshes Ish is believed regarding the death of her husband), then certainly we believe her regarding an Isur Lav (a Yevamah who testifies that her Yavam died).
2. He is permitted to the relatives of the sister. If his wife subsequently dies, he may marry the sister.
3. Rebbi Akiva says that a man who marries his brother's wife or the sister of his wife also requires a Get.
4. Nisu'in is never conditional, because a person does not make his Bi'ah into a Bi'as Znus.
