BUSINESS HALACHA INSTITUTE
Restoring the Primacy of Choshen Mishpat
We are very familiar with Orach Chaim and Yoreh Deah. We understand that the halachos therein touch our lives daily in so many ways. We know enough to recognize when we need to look up a halacha or ask a Rav.
Yet, for too many of us, Choshen Mishpat is the sefer left on the shelf, rarely looked at. We do not realize how Choshen Mishpat permeates our lives in so many areas. In business. At home. Everywhere.
We do not realize that a business contract written by some of the keenest legal minds, and costing a small fortune, may not meet the requirements of Choshen Mishpat. Nor do we understand that Bais Din will not consider such a contract valid, and that the loss which may possibly ensue could be catastrophic.
Overtime for a baby sitter. Home repair disagreements. Slip and fall accidents. Blocking a driveway, causing lateness to work and a loss of income. Workers’ compensation. Property boundaries. Debts. Choshen Mishpat is as relevant to our daily lives as Orach Chaim and Yoreh Deah.
Business Halacha Institute is an organization focusing on restoring Choshen Mishpat to its rightful place in our lives. Restoring Choshen Mishpat’s prominence and importance alongside Orach Chaim and Yoreh Deah.
Business Halacha Institute accomplishes this through:
· Contract writing assistance
· Business consultations
· Shayla Hotline
· Arbitration (when approached by both parties willingly) Choshen Mishpat Chaburos
· Business Weekly newsletter
· Biweekly emails

Take advantage of Business Halacha Institute’s services – many of which are free – to ensure that you are as comfortable and familiar with Choshen Mishpat as you are with Yoreh Deah.
