The Rashba asks: Why don’t we recite Birchat HaTorah when we finish learning as we do when receiving an aliyah to the Torah? Because we don’t make a bracha when mitzvot are over. The Steipler asks: What kind of question is that – the reason should be because we never finish learning!

When you make a neder not to derive benefit from someone why are you prohibited from using his sefarim – shouldn’t we say מצוות לאו ליהנות נינהו?
