A mistaken deathbed gift


We have been learning about gifts.

If a person is terminally ill and bedridden and he gives away all of his property, and then he is healed to the point that he regains mobility and is free of illness, then his gifts are automatically nullified. It is assumed that he only gave away all of his assets because he believed he would die from that bout of illness.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 250:2)

Have a great day,
