Laws of Inheritance המצווה הרמ”ח


The 248th mitzvah is that we are commanded regarding the laws of inheritance.

The source of this commandment is G‑d’s statement1 (exalted be He), “If a man dies and has no son…”

This mitzvah undoubtedly includes the law that the firstborn son inherits a double portion,2 since this is part of the laws of inheritance.

The details of this mitzvah are explained in the 8th and 9th chapters of tractate Bava Basra.

והוא אמרו יתעלה: “איש כי ימות ובן אין לו וגו’ ” (במדבר כז, ח). ומכלל דין זה בלי ספק, שיהיה הבכור יורש פי שנים, כי זה משפט ממשפטי היורשים.

וכבר נתבארנו דיני מצווה זו בפרק ח’ ופרק ט’ מ[בבא] בתרא.
