What is the role of the executor of a will ?

By: דיאנה שאלתיאלPublished on: 13 May, 2022

A person appointed as executor of the will is supposed to execute the will as it is written so that it reflects the wishes of the testator. He does not have discretion to do as he pleases, but only within limits defined in the will. If a provision in the will is unclear, or if he has any problems in interpreting or executing the will he can ask the court for instructions. Certain actions may even require court approval.
