Welcome to Kollel Choshen Mishpot - Toras Shneur

The first of its kind in Ohio, and one of a mere handful worldwide, Kollel Choshen Mishpot - The Center of Jewish Business Law, provides Orthodox legal services such as arbitration, halachic business review, certification, iska documents, and more. It also serves as an advanced halachic research center of complex issues of the day, and distributes weekly email and newsletter publication.

The Kollel was born thanks to the input and inspiration of many individuals. At the suggestion of Harav Aryeh Malkiel Kotler, shlita, after whose father the kollel is named, and encouragement of local Rabbanim, the kollel began a pilot program in Elul 5777, with an afternoon chaburah in the Torah Life Kollel of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and has just moved into its own beautiful facility on Taylor Road.

After much success, Baruch Hashem, the Kollel developed into full day program comprised of distinguished talmidei chachamim, many who are experts in multiple areas of Halacha - some having already received Smichah, who have dedicated themselves to the in-depth study of Choshen Mishpot.

WHAT IS CHOSHEN MISHPOT?

Choshen Mishpot refers to the laws of halachic jurisprudence. It is a complex body of halacha and only a few are proficient with its tenets. Its application spans an entire gamut of business and commerce; hence familiarity with it is important for those working in these industries. In fact, Jewish Business law has had a direct impact on contemporary jurisprudence, and forms the basis of much of today's legal system‚Äč as we know it.

There are many Jewish laws that govern finance, torts, and legal procedures and it is best to learn all of them under the guidance of experienced educators. At KCM we have a hand-selected group of older and seasoned Rabbis who have chosen to complement their vast knowledge of the Talmud and halacha, with the study of business halacha. Under the direction of the Rosh Kollel, we have set out to clarify and teach these laws to the masses, through ongoing shiurim (classes), in person, online, and via radio. Every day, a group of accomplished scholars plumb the depths of the Talmud and Shulchan Oruch clarifying the nuances of these laws.

Are there any questions that concern you about your business? You can contact the Kollel at any time, via the 24/7 Shailah Email Hotline by clicking here. You can also browse some real Shailos on our services page.

THE PERSONAL EDGE

By: Rabbi Eliezer Cohen, Rosh Kollel/Dean

Dear Friend, 

Our Torah teaches; "V'asisa Hayashar V'hatov - you shall do that which is proper and good". The goal of all Torah study, and business halacha is no exception, is that ultimately we create a peaceful society. Contrary to common perception that financial success can only be attained through intense competition, Jewish Business Law teaches to exercise mutually beneficial business practice. Due to its inherent holiness, it serves simultaneously both as a body of law and ethics. Hence, the all-too-familiar adage "business is business" has no place in halacha. Honesty, kindness, and friendship are qualities to cultivate in all areas of life.
