~ This Week’s Torah Trivia ~

Last Week’s Question :What big idea is found at the beginning of last week’s sedrah, Ki Teitzei?

Answer: “Judges and Officers you should appoint for yourself”, which is incumbent on each individual and tells us to set up courts of justice and systems of enforcing the judgements.

This Week’s Question: What law regarding business relationships is stated?
