Every day, we are confronted by basic questions of honesty. For example:
- If the motel operator says they accept three children in a room, can you
bring a fourth?
- If someone blocks your driveway, are you liable for damage done while
getting your car out?
- If you break an appliance, can you ask for a replacement under warranty?
- Is it OK if the librarian is a personal friend, and tells you to forget
the fines you owe for overdue books?
Sometimes the answers appear obvious -- sometimes the question is more
subtle. And, sometimes, we forget basic principles "in the heat of the
moment" and reason to ourselves that "everyone does it" or "it's really ok."
We need to have a better understanding of the issues involved, so we are
more equipped to deal with when they arise. To help us in this endeaver,
Rabbi Yisroel Belsky, Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Vodaas, has
agreed to answer our questions.
This new class is intended as a workshop for personal growth. Each week, a
question will be posted to the list for your thought and consideration. How
would you answer? What would you do?
Then, the following week, we'll see how Rabbi Belsky answers the question
-- and send out a question for the following week.
