Chapter 4, Mishna 1, 2
Can’t take a vow on behalf of someone else. Tying vow to someone else’s vow. Woman who tries to sin and is unaware that husband nullified vow still needs to atone. Compared to man who wants to sin by eating pork but eats permitted meat by mistake, he still needs atonement and forgiveness. Negligent ignorance is not an excuse for sinful behavior. If a group of people register for and eat paschal lamb on Pesach night, but one of group ate it for sake of excessive eating (didn’t have proper intent) is that considered a transgression? Comparison with Lot and his daughters – did they commit incest for the sake of Heaven? According to the society around you is how you will turn out: Lot separated himself from Abraham.
