Bechorot of a Convert


According to Halacha, Jews’ male first born donkeys, sheep, and cattle are consecrated (with some implications therein). My question is, if a gentile owns first born male sheep, cattle or donkeys, and then convert to Judaism, do they become consecrated? Sources please



  1. No. The animal has to be born to a Jewish owner. Even though the non-Jew subsequently converted it does not change the fact that the animals were born to a non-Jew.
