Ketubot 54: Respecting Respective Rabbis’ Views: On Inheritance

Ending chapter 4: beginning with some of the geographic differences in talmudic times – and how different places had different practices. Which leads to a dispute between Rav and Shmuel, which each paskened like the practice in either Jerusalem or Yehudah – that is, the Babylonian communities followed the various Israel practices. With a divide between Nehardea and Mehoza. Plus, a series of cases of what happens when there’s a conflict over who inherits how…. Including when different rabbis paskened differently for the same issue – 4 stories, with wrinkled of depreciation, etc.
