Why does he assume it belongs to this Doctor?
He may of just given away this large amount of money to the wrongful owner

I hope they asked him for simanim! Many people are out to claim money they don’t care if it’s right or wrong.

Retribution in brand new dollar Bills?
I don’t think so.

Interesting fact

Those bills are from 2006 or later. I wonder who and when put it there, whether it was really the deceased Holocaust survivor

The retribution isn’t in cash anyway. Clearly, the son meant that his father had a lot of retribution money in the bank, and he withdrew it in the form of American money

ARE YOU KIDDING!! YOU JUST HANDED IT OVER 100k WITHOUT CONSULTING A ROV AS TO HOW TO ESTABLISH HOW THE OWNERSHIP IS DETERMINED OR EVEN IF YOU WERE MECHAYIV TO MENTION PRIOR TO PROVING IT BELONGED TO THE DOCTOR OR HIS MOTHER. HE MUST BE LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK. PLEASE CONFIRM YOU FIRST ASKED THE DOCTOR 3 VERY SIMPLE QUESTIONS;

1) WAS THE DOCTOR AWARE OF ANY MONEY BEING HIDDEN IN THE APARTMENT.

2) IF YES, HOW MUCH?

3) WHERE WAS IT HIDDEN?

4) IN WHAT DENOMINATIONS OR CURRENCY?

HIS MOTHER KNEW NOTHING OF IT!

The Shluchim rent the apartment from the old woman. The apartment belongs to the old woman, and thus, any money inside it (besides for that which belongs to the current tenants) automatically belongs to her. The only case in which the woman would not be immediately entitled to that money is if that apartment had been rented to someone else before the Shluchim moved in (or if she bought the couch second hand–unlikely) in which case we’d consider the possibility that the money belongs to previous tenant/s. But, as the article implies, the Shluchim rented the apartment right after the… Read more »

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE KIDDUSH HASHEMS THIS IS. IT IS A SHAME TO SEE COME COMMENTS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR SOME POINTS OF NEGATIVITY, HASHEM YERACHEM.

THIS IS A SHLIACH AND EDUCATED RABBI, TO ASSUME HE DID NOT CONSULT HALACHIC SOURCES?

MOSHIACH NOW

He mentioned what was is last weeks parsha that hashem put tzaraas in the homes for the yidden to get the Money, but here hashem was giving them a present and they naïvely gave it away…

The money didn’t belong to him and it made perfect sense that it belonged to the woman.

Yes but she ddnt know about it. And the money looked like new bills. So it’s a mystery. Maybe it was bought second hand after all

Still not the Shliach's

Even if it does not belong to the woman, and it is impossible for the Shliach to find the owner of the money, the Shliach is forbidden from keeping it; he must protect it untill Moshiach comes

I once rented the apartment from the lady and hid the stash of about $100,000 (euros & US dollars) in the couch……………… and I am ready to split it 3 ways. LOL

Who is to say the old lady didn’t purchase a second hand armchair years earlier or it was already there when she moved in from a previous occupant? As she is of sound mind and said she knew nothing of the money it should be Finders Keepers Al Pi Halocho. If the doctor cannot explain it or give Simonim then it’s not so straight forward?

If her husband hid it, it’s hers and her sons, even if they didn’t know about it.

Hashem has more in his bank … he will bless this couple with double double triple as a reward for doing the right thing …. doing the right thing is … doing the right thing ! The rebbe taught us this lesson

How could the Rabbi have known that the money belonged to the doctor’s mother if she did not know nothing about it? Something in this story doesn’t fit.

Wow!
