Description
Is there halakhic validity to a transaction that is concluded with a handshake, a toast or saying the words “mazal and brakhah”? What is the halakhic status of signing a contract, registering real estate at the Land Registry Office, transactions in future goods, auctions, and online sales transactions? This book addresses these and similar issues. The subject of the book is the validity of commercial customs (practices) involving the transfer of ownership and the creation of an obligation. It examines the fascinating encounter between property law and monetary customs, and more generally, the interaction between Jewish law (halakhah) and custom. The focus is on the gap which exists between Jewish law and the dynamic practices of merchants (minhag hasoharim) as well as the ways in which halakhic decisors deal with this gap.

The book’s interdisciplinary approach to merchant customs combines a scrutiny of the rabbinic literature, of ancient, medieval and modern legal systems, of lexicons and of other historical sources. This approach has yielded contributions in several areas of scholarship.
