Acharei Mot-Kedoshim 5775

Friday, May 1, 2015

Of the many commandments in Parshas Kedoshim, the Torah warns us about cheating in business and immoral relations. The Gemara in Bava Basra (88b) compares the two sins and concludes that cheating is business is worse. How so? The Gemara answers that one can do teshuvah for immoral relations, but cannot do teshuvah for cheating in business. Rashi and Tosafos add that when one steals from a community, it is impossible to return money to each individual and therefore an incomplete teshuvah.
