Dedicated to the complete and speedy recovery of Noa bat Tova. || We’re ending a chapter and beginning a chapter, with mishnayot at both points. The last mishnah of chapter 9: Being a minor isn’t a free-for-all, in terms of getting out of responsibilities – in this case, specifically, a ketubah. Likewise, a non-Jew who comes into a marriage with a contract and that is upheld even in the Jewish context. Plus a discussion on how to read the mishnah – was it misread to be too specific about the ketubah. Also, the first mishnah of the 10th chapter: when one has more than one wife, how the ketubot are doled out, in the event of the husband’s death. Also, what happens if one of the wives dies first. And the parallel to collecting or paying a debt, regardless. Plus, 3 different principles that are learned from the cases in the mishnah, in terms of the rights of inheritance and the order of it.
