Chapter 3, Mishna 13, Chapter 4, Mishna 1
Who is a mamzer? Can mamzerim be purified? What does man’s “house’ refer to? Can children of priests/levites to marry one another? What about converts, emancipated slaves, certain other nationalities? What does it mean that Israel is higher than other lands? Who are Jews who “ascended”? Were there mamzerim among those who ascended? What are indications that one’s lineage is flawed? What happens to one who publicly mocks a Torah scholar? When can a man send greetings to a woman? Who can and can’t marry Jews with unflawed lineage?
