May a seriously ill person execute a will in Israel? Posted on June 24, 2013

There are situations in which a testator is on his deathbed in a hospital or his physical condition is bad and there is fear that a hostile party may be interested in seizing control of the testator’s property. The law allows for the drafting a notarized will to which is attached a medical certificate which the doctor states that the testator understood what he was signing. Note that wills which have a medical certificate attached to them constitute almost incontrovertible evidence regarding the legal capacity of the testator at the time he signed the will.
