DAF DISCUSSIONS - BAVA KAMA 40

Alain Geldzahler asked:

when palge memoine knas and you have two shiduf for the shor they can pay because you cannot split the knas so how can someone make kapoeres with one chiken for two person ?

The Kollel replies:

While the Mishnah Berurah (605:3) indeed says that two people can share one Kaparah, he clearly says that this should only be done if they cannot each afford their own chicken. This implies that technically the same logic should apply as by Kofer (see Gemara), but because this is only a custom it was allowed for two people to share if need be.

All the best,

Yaakov Montrose
