    But I don’t think the writ will change his mentality overnight either.

    I was referring to whether a slave who is not so much declared free as much as declared ownerless is countable toward a minyan and the other halakhos of full membership in the tribe. In other words, do we consider him on the same road as other Jews, not whether he is in the same place on that road.

And your thoughts...?
