Negative Mitzvah 236

  Day 300Day 302  

Negative Mitzvah 236: It is forbidden to borrow money if interest is charged
Deuteronomy 23:20 "You shall not give interest to your brother"

This Negative Mitzvah cautions the borrower from taking a loan which includes an interest charge (see Negative Mitzvah 235).

Rather, he should trust that HaShem will grant him his needs in a manner permitted by Torah law.

A student begins as a sponge or as a funnel: Either everything is absorbed, undiscerningly -- or everything passes in one ear and out the other. The first job of a teacher, therefore, is to direct the student and tell him, "Focus on this, this is important. Do not focus on this -- this is only the background."
