SHORT, CONCISE VIDEOS COVERING AN ARRAY OF BUSINESS TOPICS

INTEREST &
HETER ISKA

Are there any Ribbis issues I need to be aware of when syndicating a deal? If I put up money to help my partnership through the month, are there Ribbis concerns?

GENEIVAS
DA’AS

Can I write “Best deal in town” on my ads if it may not be accurate? May I advertise a few doorbuster items to get customers through the door?

LOSHON HARA
IN BUSINESS

If someone asks me questions about an old employee, and I have some negative things to say, am  I allowed to? What are the paramaters?

PARTNERSHIPS & DISSOLUTIONS

I am working much harder than my partner and bringing in all the deals. Am I entitled to a larger share? Our partnership is really not working out; is there any way I can force him out?
