Judge laws of inheritance

 

 “If a man dies and has no son then you will transfer his inheritance to his daughter” Bemidbar, Pinchas 27:8

 

A son takes precedence to a daughter and all male descendants precede a daughter.

A daughter and all her male descendants precede the father of the deceased.

Included in this commandment is for the first born to receive a double portion of the inheritance.

A husband inherits his wife’s property according to the Scribes and he takes precedence over all others regarding her estate.

 

This applies in all places at all times.
