What is required on the part of the borrower?

Monday, August 26, 2019

The borrower must have (even through “sekhirut”) a lien on some amount of land on which the Pruzbul can attach a lien, even a small amount of land. If one suspects that the borrower has no land, the lender may “sell” land to the borrower from his own land. This is accomplished by one of the judges (or witnesses) handing a handkerchief to the lender by which all of the borrowers acquire a small amount of land from the lender.
