20) [line 9] SHALI'ACH L'KABALAH / SHALI'ACH L'HOLACHAH
The Torah requires that the Get be given directly into the hands of the
woman (Devarim 24:1). However, a husband who wants to divorce his wife does
not need to give the Get to the woman himself; he may appoint a Shali'ach to
bring the Get and hand it to her. When the man appoints a Shali'ach to bring
the Get to his wife, this is called a "Shali'ach l'Holachah." A woman, too,
may appoint a "Shali'ach l'Kabalah" to receive the Get from her husband on
her behalf, or to receive the Get from her husband's Shali'ach. When her
Shali'ach l'Kabalah receives the Get, the woman becomes divorced as if she
had received it herself. The woman may also appoint a "Shali'ach l'Hava'ah"
to receive the Get from the man and to bring it to her (in which case, she
is not divorced until the Shali'ach l'Hava'ah gives her the Get).
21) [line 11] HOLECH K'ZECHI DAMI
(a) When a person sends an object to another person who is not present by
way of a Shali'ach (agent) there are two ways that the recipient may acquire
(i.e. take Halachic title of) the object. The recipient may acquire the
object when the Shali'ach delivers it and the recipient personally receives
it and makes a Kinyan (a formal act of acquisition) on the object.
Alternatively, the recipient may acquire the object at the moment that the
original owner gives it to the Shali'ach by having the Shali'ach act on the
recipient's behalf and make a Kinyan on the object for him.
(b) Normally, in order for the recipient to acquire the object at the moment
that the Shali'ach receives it, two conditions must be fulfilled. If either
of these two conditions are not fulfilled, the recipient must wait until he
actually receives the object from the Shali'ach in order to be considered
the Halachic owner of the object. The two conditions are:
1. The recipient must either have appointed the Shali'ach to acquire it on
his behalf, or it must be obvious to all that the recipient *would have
wanted* to appoint the Shali'ach to acquire it on his behalf. (The latter is
known as "Zechiyah," or "Zachin l'Adam she'Lo b'Fanav;" see Background to
(c) The Gemara discusses whether various expressions fulfill the second
condition listed above. Some say that when the owner says "*Give* ("Ten")
this object to so-and-so," he means that he wants the Shali'ach to *acquire*
it for the recipient immediately. This is known as "Ten k'Zechi." Some say
that even when the owner says "*Take* ("Holech") this object to so-and-so,"
he means that he wants the Shali'ach to *acquire* it for the recipient
immediately. This is known as "Holech k'Zechi."
2. The person giving the object must also be interested in having the
Shali'ach transfer ownership of the object immediately. This condition is
fulfilled when the original owner of the object clearly expresses his intent
for the recipient to immediately acquire the object, for example by saying
"*Acquire* ("Zechi"), this object for so-and-so."
(d) The Rishonim explain that even those who maintain "Ten k'Zechi" and
"Holech k'Zechi" only do so under limited circumstances. For instance, "Ten"
will only be like "Zechi" if the giver of the object *hands it over* to the
Shali'ach at the time that he says to the Shali'ach "Give ('Ten') this to
so-and-so." In addition, "Ten k'Zechi" might be limited to an object (or
money) that the giver is *obligated* to deliver to the recipient, but not to
a gift. (See TOSFOS Gitin 11b DH Kol ha'Omer, Bava Basra 85a DH Hachi
