BAVA BASRA 146-150 - Two weeks of study material have been dedicated by Mrs. Estanne Abraham Fawer to honor the tenth Yahrzeit of her father, Rav Mordechai ben Eliezer Zvi (Rabbi Morton Weiner) Z'L, who passed away on 18 Teves 5760. May the merit of supporting and advancing Dafyomi study -- which was so important to him -- during the weeks of his Yahrzeit serve as an Iluy for his Neshamah.

[148a - 19 lines; 148b - 32 lines]

1) [line 2] AF AL GAV D'LEISEI B'VARI - even though it (i.e. the ability to transfer ownership of a debt) does not exist for a healthy person

6)
[line 14] KOL L'GABEI NAFSHEI, B'AYIN YAFEH MESHAYEIR - anything that is relevant to oneself, he leaves over [to himself] generously. (According to the explanation of the RASHBAM, these words should be omitted and replaced with the words, "V'ALIBA D'RAV ZEVID" ("and it is according to Rav Zevid"), who is quoted by the Gemara later (149b).)

[line 11] STAMEI DI'SHECHIV MERA, MEIDAK DAYIK V'HADAR YAHIV - in a normal case of a Shechiv Mera, he carefully scrutinizes [what property he wants to give to whom] and then he gives it
