BAVA BASRA 150 - A week of learning has been dedicated towards meriting a Refu'ah Sheleimah for Eliezer Lipa ben Yetta, by Mr. and Mrs. Kornfeld of Yerushalayim.


1. Usually, a "Kol Shehu" means an insignificant amount.
2. The Gemara discusses the case of a person on his deathbed who says that his movable objects should go to Ploni.
3. The Gemara asks whether slaves are subject to the law of movable objects or of land.
4. The Gemara discusses the law of a "Mivrachas."
5. The Gemara explains what is included in the word "Nichsei" -- "possessions."


1. However, the Gemara does cite a case where the term "Kol Shehu" is used in a Mishnah because the first opinion cited a large amount, and the second opinion was stating a much smaller amount. The second opinion therefore classified its amount as a "Kol Shehu" to contrast the first opinion, even though it was certainly more than minute.
2. In such a case, all of his movable objects are given to the beneficiary except for his barley and wheat (and possibly his animals; Rashbam). If he says, "All of my movable objects should go to Ploni," then even the barley and wheat (and animals) are acquired by this beneficiary.
3. The Gemara's question involves only Rabbinic laws. Regarding Torah laws, we find that a slave is compared to land.
4. This refers to a woman who is getting married for a second time, and who has many possessions that she does not want her second husband to acquire. Therefore, before she marries, she gives all of her possessions to someone else.
5. This is important in a case where a person said that he is giving all of his "possessions" to a certain person, and he made a Kinyan to that effect. The Gemara says that many things are included in this, such as land, loan documents, servants, clothing, etc.
