Chapter 9! A new mishnah – a divorce with the vocabulary of “ehla” – permitted to any man, but rather except… But doesn’t that language stipulate a condition, in which case, how do they proceed? Is it a get on condition that she can’t marry someone specific? Or does it specify whom she can marry?? A parallel case of “negaim” – house tzara’at – can help explain this “ehla.” Also, betrothal with the exclusion of everyone except for one, and that one does the same betrothal. But how strange – to be betrothed to two people!
