Shuda – Gefet 63

Shuda – The Messenger Gets to Decide
In our sugya, we are dealing with a case where one sent money to another through a messenger but died before he delivered it. In Babylonia, they ruled that the messenger gets to decide who gets the money (shuda). There is a famous dispute between Rashi and Rabbeinu Tam how to understand the logic of shuda. How does our sugya provide a proof for Rabbeinu Tam鈥檚 approach. Join us for an in-depth look at fascinating sugya!
