Description

This shiur is meant to serve as a conceptual introduction to the third chapter of Masechet Bava Batra, dedicated to the process of establishing ownership over real property (karka). The occupaant has no document to prove that he purchased the land from the original owner. The Halacha works with the assumption that the property belongs to the last person who is known to have owned the land. If three years have passed since Reuvain occupied the field, and during this period Reuvain enjoyed the field as any owner would, planting, harvesting and marketing his produce, Shimon, the original owner, forfeits his claim to the land since he did not protest against Reuvain's occupancy. In this shiur we will define chazaka and undersatand how it works.
