Damages Thank you so much for your reply. Perhaps your talmadine do or do not know how fortunate they are to be there live with you and each other. This is a real blessing for me; as when I was a girl I wanted to be an attorney; I am glad HaShem provided these lessons in my old age - He satisfies our desires.

Thank you again

Ploughing or Meat To Janice:

Indeed. If he bought it for meat, there would be no argument. The case however over here is that the buyer claims that be bought it for ploughing, and therefore want to return it, while the seller claims that the sale may have very well been for meat. Reply

Ox for plow or meat If he bought the ox for meat - why would he want to return it? He slaughters it, butchers it, freezes, cooks and eats. Reply
