Posthumous gifts


A gift which is intended to apply posthumously ("Upon my death, so-and-so receives my pony") is not valid under Jewish law.

However: A gift which is given while one is alive, but hidden from public revelation until after death, is still valid.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 242:6)

Have a great day,
