Yevamot 22: Not My Brother-Not My Father Either

On the status of converts, particularly with regard to the secondary forbidden relationships. Also, a mishnah: how different statuses of one’s brother have impact (or don’t) on issues of yibum. Plus, the implications of having a non-Jewish mother. Also, the issue of mamzerut, the progeny from illicit sexual relationships, and the impact on yibum. NOTE: The conference mentioned in the episode is on Wednesday, March 30 – Anne had the date wrong.
