Barry Epstein asked:

The Mishnah says to follow the maternal grandfather re property rights. Why the maternal grandfather?

Barry Epstein, Dallas, USA

The Kollel replies:

The Mishnah does not say to follow the maternal grandfather with regard to all property rights. The Mishnah says that if one inherited his maternal grandfather, then some of the laws which pertained to the field when it belonged to a Levi still apply to him even though he is a Yisrael.
