Nazir 28: Revoking a Wife’s Vow and Making a Vow for a Son

A new mishnah: Can a husband still revoke his wife’s vow of nezirut at the time that she’s bringing the final sacrifices at the conclusion of her nezirut? In contrast to earlier discussions, it seems that he cannot do so, this late in the game. The Gemara then probes the opinions of R. Akiva and R. Eliezer. Plus, a discussion of wigs, potentially being distasteful to a husband, in contrast to the comparable products today. Also, another mishnah: a father can make a vow to establish nezirut for his minor son. Which the son can then negate, with all the expected ramifications for the funds or animals that were set aside for his sacrifices, in the event that they were.
