Mitzvah L'Kayem Divrei Hameis

‍‍ח׳ כסלו תשס״ח - Sunday, November 18th, 2007

The entire סוגיא of מצוה לקיים דברי המת is a complicated one, and certainly cannot be covered, or even summarized, in one post. Here, I'm going to try and deal with a fairly limited aspect; specifically, the רמב"ם in הלכות מכירה in פרק כ"ב, הלכה ט"ו / ט"ז.

Updates

‍‍כ״ח מרחשון תשס״ח - Friday, November 9th, 2007

I haven't been posting lately; I have a post on מתנה לעני which is almost ready, but not quite. I'm still not clear enough on this week's קצות to even think of writing anything...

Mechilah without a Kinyan with a Shtar

‍‍י״ח מרחשון תשס״ח - Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

I must confess, this post is rather late. We first saw the קצוה"ח on which it's based last Thursday night, but until tonight (Mon), I didn't really have a clear enough understanding in everything to feel comfortable letting anyone see my (limited) understanding. Thanks to some clarifications in today's שיעור and a discussion with my חברותא, I now feel I understand this fairly well.

The שולחן ערוך writes that מחילה works without any קניין required. That is, if Reuven owes Shimon money, and wants to forgive the debt, he can do so without any formal מעשה קניין. There's a discussion amongst the פוסקים whether this is true if Shimon has a שטר testifying to Reuven's deby.

Mechusar Amanah (2)

‍‍ט״ז מרחשון תשס״ח - Sunday, October 28th, 2007

Earlier, we discussed three סוגיות dealing with מחוסר אמנה. In this post, we'll discuss the הלכה למעשה, and try and explain all three sources according to both sides.

Site Moving

‍‍י״ב מרחשון תשס״ח - Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Please note that this site is moving to a new server. As soon as I find out that the migration is complete, I'll be disabling access to the old server, to prevent comments and other things from being posted to the old site.

In case the DNS transfer takes a while, you'll be able to reach the new server at 74.54.69.43 For comparison, the old server was at 64.21.48.171.

Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.

Edit: Migration complete. DNS propagation is underway; if you see this, everything is peaches and cream again
