[Shanah tovah! This episode is for Tuesday, September 27, the second day of Rosh Hashanah] A new chapter! Can you relinquish something that is your right to own? Specifically, can a husband recuse himself, as it were, from his wife’s property? Or does it remain his for the produce of it, as those are the Torah’s terms? Plus, whoever owns the given document is at a disadvantage – to what extent does the husband retain his rights? Also, a brief reflection on mortality, given how people handle their land (and how easily, or not so easily would they sell, depending on the commonality of consequences?). So, beyond the question of whether the adjustment to the Torah contract could even work, there’s also the question of whether one would actually try!
