The Business Breakfast: The Justice System

Our Business Breakfast program strives to create awareness of the laws of Choshen Mishpat, the Torah's monetary code. An essential component of that awareness has to be where to turn when a monetary dispute arises. Rabbi Ephraim Friedman of the Chicago Choshen Mishpat Kollel explained the importance of turning to a Beis Din, a Jewish court of law, for any dispute between Jews. At the same time, there are certain situations when it may be permissible to take a case to the secular court system. For more about these important guidelines, listen to the audio below.
