What is the minimum age of kiddushin (that is Dioryta) that the father can effect via כסף or שטר?


From the day she is born (Shulchan Arukh EH 37:1).

  • what with לקדש עובר במעי אמו? – kouty Nov 12 '19 at 14:03
  • @kouty doesn't work. If you give money to dad when mom is noticably pregnant for the kiddushin to take effect later when fetus is born, then a minority opinion says that works and she is mekuddeshet from the day she is born, see EH 40:7 – Double AA Nov 12 '19 at 14:13

    But it's worth noting that making use of this halacha is a terrible idea except in weird cases. – Heshy Nov 12 '19 at 14:38
