Economic Morality and Jewish Law

Aaron Levine

Oxford University Press

This chapter illustrates a case study of how the social context can lead to misguided economic decisions. It also includes rules of morality set by Jewish law to guide modes of conduct and reconciliation of conflicts. It provides an exposition that settles the conflicts between truth-telling and other dictates of virtue by explaining the following scenarios: Rabbi Elimelekh Pelt's Keynote Speech at the Rye Hilton and Rabbi Pelt's Tryout Sermon at Eden Commons.

Keywords:   Rabbi Elimelekh Pelt, Rye Hilton, Tryout Sermon, Eden Commons, deontological ethical system, hanuppah, derashot
