I remember many years ago learning a ketzos who quotes an acharon (with a name similar to sason, I think) that the monetary obligation incumbent on a thief flows from the torah's commandment to return the item. In other words, the chov mamon beganav or gazlan comes (shtams) from the chiyuv hashava. Does anyone know where this ketzos is?

  • Thank, but i know for sure it's a ketzos. I've seen it a few times but not for several years, so i don't remember exactly where it is. I'd love to give more clues but i can't except maybe that the quote I'm thinking of is at the end of the piece. – Dr Yitz Nov 29 '18 at 20:07
  • How certain are you that it’s a Ketzos? Sefaria’s search feature isn’t the best out there, but it’s pulling no hits for any possible search term I can think of. – DonielF Jan 25 at 6:31
