  1. Business ethics:
  • Ona’h: One may not overcharge or underpay another person in a sale without their knowledge.
  • Selling land: The price that the land is to be sold for is to be based on the amount of years remaining until the next Yovel. If many years remain until the Yovel then it is to be sold for a larger sum, if only a few years remain until the Yovel it is to be sold for a smaller sum, as one is not selling the land itself but is leasing it for a certain sum of years.


  1. Not to offend another Jew:
  • One may not verbally harass or offend another Jew using words.
