Understanding Malfeasance

By David Zweibel

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2009

The author explores whether Haredim are more prone to illegal unethical conduct than others. Zwiebel states that he doesnâ??t know the answer to this question; however, two factors may contribute to unethical behavior: ignorance of the law and poverty. Zweibel is encouraged by recent education and welfare programs in the community.
