For those who dreamed the end of shmitah year might bring some relief, the money you owe City Hall will be collected, and done so in accordance to halacha.
Earlier in the week, the city’s treasurer arrived on the 6th floor of the main building in City Hall, meeting with Rabbi Eliezer Samchiuf, a deputy mayor who happens to holds the city’s finance portfolio. A pruzbol was signed to ensure there were no halachic problems with the city seeking to collect debts after Rosh Hashanah.
The nusach chosen was the pruzbol in accordance to the Badatz Beit Yosef, under the direction of HaGaon Rav Ovadia Yosef Shlita.
