Admon ben Gaddai was a tana living during the fourth era of Zugot at the time of Shmaya and Avtalyon before the destruction of the Second Temple. Along with Chanan ben Avishalom he served as a judge who issued Rabbinic decrees, from a court in Yerushalaim. He issued seven rulings while Chanan issued two.

[edit] Decrees

  1. A man that dies and leaves inheritance, his sons receive the assets and his daughters get money for food. If the assets do not cover the above then the girls continue to get money for food and the boys get nothing and have to eat from charity. Admon argues on this saying; "Because I am a male, I loose?", rather the boys continue to inherit the assets.

[edit] Kever Admon

Admon is buried in Achbara right next to Akavia ben Mahalalel. There is a dispute regarding the exact location between Yisroel Meir Gabbai / Ohali Tzadikim and Kadmonanue.
