1. If a person accepted an item from a minor, he should make it into a "Segulah" for the child when he grows up.
2. There is a dispute about whether the rule that a father and son cannot make a Chazakah on each other always applies.
3. The Gemara concludes that they are able to make a Chazakah on each other if their finances are separate.
4. The Gemara discusses a case in which one of the brothers, who always dealt with the father's property on behalf of the other brothers, has the documents written in his name.
5. Rav: The brother must bring proof that these documents are for his own private assets.


1. Some say that this means that he should purchase a Sefer Torah with the value of the item. Others say that it refers to buying a piece of land that contains fruit-bearing trees.
2. Rav Yosef: This applies even if their finances are totally separate, and the son does not rely on the father financially. Rabah: If their finances are separate, they may make a Chazakah on each other.
3. Rav Papi ruled this way in practice when such a case came before him.
4. The brother claims that these sale (or other) documents showing that he owns many assets refer to his own private assets and transactions. The family claims that these are their late father's assets that the brother put under his own name, since he was the one who was dealing with them.
5. Shmuel: The burden of proof lies on the other brothers. Shmuel claims that Rav admits that if the brother dies, his brothers have to bring proof, not the sons of the brother.
