Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Who is exempt from having to make the “Declaration of Thanks” when bringing their Bikurim?
וְעַתָּ֗ה הִנֵּ֤ה הֵבֵ֙אתִי֙ אֶת־רֵאשִׁית֙ פְּרִ֣י הָאֲדָמָ֔ה אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֥תָּה לִּ֖י יְהוָ֑ה וְהִנַּחְתּ֗וֹ לִפְנֵי֙ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֔יךָ וְהִֽשְׁתַּחֲוִ֔יתָ לִפְנֵ֖י יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֶֽיךָ׃
Wherefore I now bring the first fruits of the soil which You, O LORD, have given me.” You shall leave it before the LORD your God and bow low before the LORD your God.
The following people are exempt from having to make the Declaration of Thanks when bringing their Bikurim:
One who owns the trees but not the field in which they’re planted.
One who is bringing the first fruits on behalf of someone else.
An orphan's guardian, bringing on his behalf.
Women (since the Land was only divided among the men.)
(Baba Batra 81a, Sifri,Meam Loez)
