My friend Esther has posted her suggestions to help answer to my question number 5 of the post Debt, Tithing, and Bankruptcy.
In the comments section of my last post, Ayelet brings up an unfortunately problem that seems to plague the frum community in response to question number 2: non-payment for teaching in Yeshiva, which I can't imagine is anything but assur. Somehow I'm always shocked by these stories, but have no idea why because I've heard way too many of these stories. Unfortunately, I personally know a number of people (and I don't know the affairs of that many people!) who have sat in the same boat or are sitting there currently. She writes:
"Number 2 - good question! I'm still trying to get salary owed to my
husband for teaching in a yeshivah - 5 years ago! Is this even muttar l'halacha?
When I think of the interest I have been losing and the tax (at a higher bracket
than I was then) I will have to pay, I shudder. I have a feeling there are
plenty of yeshiva that are 'behind' on payroll. "
I can't think of a more "Orthonomic" issue than this one. However, I don't believe I am qualified to write a post on the issue. So, I would welcome a guest post on any aspect of this issue and am happy to ensure confidentiality as I have done for other guest posters on other issues.
Hoping to see more comments. I'm glad to be back.
