I’m employed at a very large Israeli corporation, and the vast majority of the employees are completely not frum.
Today, my boss introduced me to another project manager, to discuss how I can take over some of their projects. Each department receives a certain amount of annual budgeting, and not always is there enough to go around for each department.
He jokingly said that “we steal budget funds from each other.”
Then he looked at me and said (albeit with a smile), “You wear a yarmulkeh, you’re allowed to steal regardless.” !!!
My fellow YWN readers and yidden, I implore you to stop celebrating acts that constitute a terrible Chilul Hashem.
I sign off with the closing words of the Tisha B’Av Kinnos:
אֱלִי צִיּוֹן וְעָרֶיהָ … עֲלֵי שִׁמְךָ אֲשֶׁר חֻלַּל
(Tzion and its suburbs, cry over Your Name which has been desecrated)
