String Remains Attached: Gittin 78

Rav Chisda says: If the get is in her hands, but the string attached to the get is in his hands; if he can pull the string and thereby bring the get back, she is not divorced. If he cannot do so, she is divorced. Why? This is because the get must be deemed a "sefer kerisus" - "book of cutting off (indicating that the giving must totally separate him from her as well)."

 

The Tiferes Shlomo writes: Hinted in this Gemora is that although there are times, on account of are actions, the Holy One, Blessed be He is compelled to chase us away from Him; nevertheless, the rope attaching us to Him is always in His hand.
