Site Moving

‍‍י״ב מרחשון תשס״ח - 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

Mechusar Amanah

‍‍י״א מרחשון תשס״ח - October 23rd, 2007

Note: this post contains no original ideas, nor even any attempts at originality. Instead, it's simply my way of making sense of a complicated issue.

While we've seen the concept of מחוסר אמנה in the פוסקים for two weeks already, yesterday was the first time we started looking into the גמרא. In brief, מחוסר אמנה is when two people reach a verbal agreement, and all the terms are agreed upon, but no money has been transfered (and obviously no קניין has been made). If one of them backs out at that point, he has done a Bad Thing™.

Kinyan after Nesinah

‍‍ט׳ מרחשון תשס״ח - October 20th, 2007

Last Thursday, we learned through (well, most of the way through) a קצות החושן, as per the normal Thursday night schedule. I just saw the נתיבות's response, and I admit, I'm a bit puzzled, and have a few questions (note: not that they're good questions; odds are I'm misunderstanding something). The post below summarizes the קצוה"ח as brought down in the נתיבות, which covers the main points.

Kinyan Hanaah

‍‍ה׳ מרחשון תשס״ח - October 16th, 2007

The טור, in 204:1, writes the following:

וכתב הרמב"ם ז"ל אבל אם היה לו חוב עליו ואמר לו מכור לי בחוב שיש לי אצלך ונתרצה המוכר הרי זה כמי שנותן דמים עתה והחוזר בו עומד במי שפרע. ובקרקע כי האי גוונא קונה לגמרי. אבל אדוני אבי הרא"ש ז"ל כתב שלא קנה אפילו המעות עדיין בעין ביד הלוה דמלוה להוצאה ניתנה ואינו נותן לו עתה כלום: אבל אם אמר לו יקנה לי שדה שלך בהנאת מחילת המלוה קנה.

Kinyan Kesef M'Derabanan

‍‍ד׳ מרחשון תשס״ח - October 15th, 2007

This will be the first in a (hopefully long) series of short notes about Choshen Mishpat. Our kehilla started a night program focusing on Choshen Mishpat today. I plan here to make some notes about things that strike me as interesting, confusing, or unclear.

Hopefully, one day, this will develop into a place for chiddushim and birurim. Until then, I plan to use it to store things that I want to make sure I go back to when I have enough information to actually have some answers.

Today's topic is on קניין כסף. According to the תורה, when a person wants to buy מטלטלין (any moveable object; i.e., not real estate), all he needs to do is pay for it. At the moment he pays, a קניין is effected, and the object (which he didn't touch, and may be located elsewhere) becomes his.
