There are a variety of opinions regarding the halachic status of the obligation of Maaser Kesafim. It is at least a minhag (possibly Minhag Yisroel) which may have the force of a neder for those accustomed to it, and possibly either a D'Rabannan or D'Oraisa obligation according others.

In Pirkei Avot 1:16, we are warned against using estimation as a method of separating maaser. While this would ostensibly refer to how one tithes produce (Terumot 4:6 המונה, משובח; והמודד, משובח ממנו; והשוקל, משובח משלושתן), are there opinions that apply this Mishna in Avot to the process of separating maaser Kesafim?

  • That question deals explicitly with produce and physical objects, not maaser for money like we are here. – Isaac Kotlicky Sep 21 '16 at 15:37
  • I linked to a question not an answer. Questions can't be duplicates of answers. – Double AA Sep 21 '16 at 15:38
  • I don't see how this isn't exactly the same as (part of) the question @DoubleAA linked to. – msh210 Sep 21 '16 at 23:13
  • @msh210 granted, the question linked adds in money, but here I'm asking if anyone connects pirkei avot to Maaser Kesafim, whereas there the OP is looking at general rules of precision for Maaser, including (possibly) money. It's a related concept, and an answer to the previous question might contain references that answer mine, but they aren't identical questions. – Isaac Kotlicky Sep 21 '16 at 23:36
