Make a Dedication
September 8, 2019
Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What if the captive woman didn’t want to get married?
וְרָאִיתָ֙ בַּשִּׁבְיָ֔ה אֵ֖שֶׁת יְפַת־תֹּ֑אַר וְחָשַׁקְתָּ֣ בָ֔הּ וְלָקַחְתָּ֥ לְךָ֖ לְאִשָּֽׁה׃
And you see among the captives a beautiful woman and you desire her and would take her to wife.
Most commentators say that the words “you may take her” teach us that he may cohabit with her once, even before she goes through the required procedure.
Others say that she must go through the entire procedure, and only then may he marry her.
He may even marry her against her will, and even if she is already married to a gentile.
(Rashi; Ramban; Tosefot; Kiddushin 22a; Meam Loez)
