Video: “Firstborn Double Inheritance” (Daf Yomi B’iyun)


Firstborn Double Inheritance from Real Clear Daf

Daf Yomi B’iyun (by Real Clear Daf) explores the topic of the first-born’s double portion of the inheritance.

The Rashbam on 126a asserts that before the estate is divided, a regular brother (as opposed the first-born) is powerless to sell or forfeit his due portion–for he does not own it yet. Tosfos rejects this assertion from 124a that takes it as given that a regular brother does own his portion right away. Find out how DYB comes to the Rashbam’s defense in this 8.5 minute video. Enjoy!


What is Daf Yomi B’iyun?

With the goal of inviting more people into the exciting process of iyun, Real Clear Daf started a series of shiurim that is called, “Daf Yomi B’iyun.” Videos of iyun shiurim related to the current topic of Daf Yomi study are broadcast for you to enjoy at whatever time is convenient for you. Source sheets are provided to give you the opportunity to prepare and/or view as you watch the shiur. You can also ask questions on any shiur via email, Whatsapp, Telegram, or the Vimeo comments section.

Real Clear Daf is grateful to Matzav for helping to share this Torah project with the public. If you have any questions, feel free to reach the maggid shiur: [email protected]

Maggid Shiur: Rabbi Shmuel Wise is maggid shiur and director of “Real Clear Daf,” a Daf Yomi web site and app (for IOS and Android) that offers free audio shiurim of Daf Yomi. He founded this project in memory of his brother, Aryeh Wise z’’l.
