Facts: Property was left to the settlor's daughter. The trust would be invalid if she married a man not of the Jewish faith or parentage. She subsequently married a non-Jewish man.
Held: Lord Atkin said the condition subsequent here was void for uncertainty and therefore the daughter could benefit from the trust
Facts: The Court of Appeal considered whether the terms ‘relative’ and ‘dependant’ were conceptually uncertain
Held: It was held that they were both capable of being defined with sufficient certainty, so the trust was valid
Facts: Beneficiary in this case was entitled to income of a fund while married to an ‘approved wife’ (i.e. a Jewish wife). The trust deed provided that any uncertainty could be resolved by referring questiongs to the Chief Rabbi
Held: The trust was valid as the meaning of Jewish faith could be resolved by reference to Jewish law
