Chapter 4, Mishna 3
Taking a vow of nazirus has an element of sinfulness because rejecting something God created (wine). What happens to nazirite woman’s offerings if vow is nullified by husband? If she had money set aside will be earmarked for communal gift offerings. Money set aside for sin offering is thrown in the sea. Husband required to provide wife with offerings only when she is bringing offerings she’s required to bring. After nullifying vow of nazirus, she’s not obligated so neither is he. Sin offering sometimes is to atone for sin and sometimes (i.e. after woman gives birth) is procedural. Does married woman have her own property if husband gets her property upon their marriage? If she saves from her own private fund. Four situations where bread is not brought along with nazir’s peace offering. Father can initiate vow on behalf of his son, but son must ratify.
