Gittin 31: An Easterly Wind Blows

What information can we trust as not changing? For example, that the husband stays alive, after he’s sent a get. So too one who separates tithes. Plus, there’s a time frame on that kind of given – often only the first 24 hours. Note the brevity of the mishnah. Also, a discussion of the east wind. And winds coming from other directions, and how strong they can be, as well as how much impact they can have. Plus, Geneivah, who on the one hand seems to have learned a lot of Torah, but he’s known to not be a nice person. And further discussion about the Amoraim, as they sit and chat… Plus, 3 things that disintegrate in the wake of the strong wind.
