There is only a very small risk of the franchise finding out if it is done, especially if it is infrequent. Besides that, “business risk” is not a halachicly sufficient barrior to ensure the reliability of the kashrus.
In a similar vein, there is a reason that halacha demands that even if a non-Jew simply DELIVERS meat or wine (that was fully prepared by Jews) it must be double-sealed since we don’t trust a non-Jew and suspect he may have changed the food to non-Kosher simply to spite the Jew. There he has even less incentive to switch it than in this scenario.
Dear DaasYochid: What are the halachic issues?
Even if they receive the muffins or donuts from a kosher bakery, who is to say with certainty that they don’t have another supplier that isn’t kosher?
Dear crisisoftheweek: Perhaps that is the Western legal view of the duties of a lawyer and the rights of a criminal, but that is not necessarily the view of the Torah. If a client admits to his lawyer his guilt, the lawyer may still go to court the next day and claim his client is innocent under “attorney/client privilige” laws. That is surely at odds with a Torah man’s obligation.
Yet it is legal for a lawyer to defend and attempt to secure the freedom of a client the lawyer knows is as guilty as sin. It is also legal for a lawyer to fight on behalf of a thief. And a lawyer may, and does, make claims that he does not know to be true. All that is not only legal but is expected of a lawyer.
You agree a frum lawyer should not engage in any of the examples I cited?
Teach what Hillel told the Ger on one foot.
Please don’t be offended, but how can a frum Jew be a lawyer? A lawyer takes cases of people he either knows is guilty or does not know is innocent and yet claims and defends his innocence with untruths. A lawyer defends thieves in their attempts to skirt their obligations. A lawyer, by proffession, lies in open court. Either knowingly or knowing it may well be lies. A lawyers duty is to seek the freedom of his clients who are a danger to society.
Where are some places a girl can earn a BTL?
Dear poster: It is a halachic question, so I don’t understand the inquiry as if it is an optional issue. We do whatever our halachic authority says.February 26, 2013 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm in reply to: Facebook Is To Blame For Rising Orthodox Jewish Divorce Rate? #935231
My dear sweet brothers, facebook to your marriage is like what TV is to your yiddishkeit. You could theoretically have a TV and use it responsibly, only watching PBS and National Geographic channels. But we all know that once the TV is in your home it will likely be used to view items that are incompatible with ones yiddishkeit. Same with facebook. Once its there, all the problems associated with it, it becomes so much easier to cheat where you wouldn’t have if the taaivos were not in front of you staring you in the face.
My dear takahmamash, There are many things Hashem told us and is written down and we thus know what He thinks. This is one of them.
