A note on the viability of a courtyard “accepting” a bill of divorce on behalf of the woman being divorced. Also, the opinion against writing a get on living things, and the biblical support for this approach. Plus, the counter-use of the same verses for the opposite view. Also, a new mishnah on the get itself – can’t be attached to the ground – and when it can be detached from the ground itself. Plus, all the details that go into it.
