Yevamot 112: Rejecting the Conspiracy Theory Case

Apologies for the late release – technical difficulties that never happened before and are unlikely to happen again. Thank you for understanding. || The end of chapter 13: when one swears off various things – specifically with implications for marriage, including one who swears off having any kind of relationship with Jews. What are the baseline assumptions in taking a vow? Had she thought it through? Does anyone think it through to that extent? Also, a mammoth mishnah, tracing all the possible cases of the new chapter, 14. The cast of characters here is: men and women of the status of halakhic competence, deaf-mute men and women, and sometimes siblings, sometimes not. How do these factors after scenarios of a husband who died without children? [Who’s Who: R. Yochanan ben Gudgeda]
