Giving a gift through an agent


If I give a gift to a recipient's agent, the gift is acquired by the recipient at the moment when the agent receives it.

The agent need not be appointed by the recipient; since the gift is beneficial to him, the gift may occur without his knowledge.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 243:1; Meirat Einayim 243:1)

Have a great day,
