Reading Assignment - Class #7

Please read mitzvot #196 – 206.  Please consider the following questions, and please continue to fill in the chart we began last class.  (There is supposed to be an additional column for punishments on this chart, but I had trouble getting the charts to load that way.  Sorry for the confusion.)

1.  Aunt, father’s sister

4.  Uncle, mother’s brother

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. If a man has sex with his father’s brother, do both the active and passive partner violate mitzvah #199?  (We will see that mitzvah #209, which prohibits male homosexual sex, applies to both the active and passive partner.)  Consider carefully the last sentence of mitzvah #199.

 

6.  Consider the cases in mitzvah #200.  The mitzvah forbids a man from having sex with his aunt.  The author describes six different relationships that fit the category of aunt.  Try to figure out what they are, then fill out the chart for each of the six categories.

11.  Granddaughter’s son’s wife

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mitzvot #203 – 206 forbid sex between a man and female relatives of a woman he is having sex with.  Please consider the following relationships:

 

13. Wife’s daughter

 

 

 

 

 

 

14.  Daughter of a woman he is sexually involved with but is not his wife.

 

 

 

 

 

15. Wife’s granddaughter

 

 

 

 

 

16. Wife’s great-granddaughter

 

 

 

 

 

 

17.    In mitzvah #205, the author summarizes which of a man’s wife’s relatives the man is prohibited from having sex with.  There is a d’oraita list and a d’rabanan list.  Can you identify which mitzvah prohibits each of these relationships?

18.   Wife’s sister.
