Free-Market Theology

By Adena K. Berkowitz

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2005

In this column, part of the Sigi Ziering series on the ethics of leadership, the author reflects on the difficulties of the free market system and our role as Jews. She admonishes us for failing to incorporate the moral and ethical precepts of Judaism into our lives. Rather, we choose to compartmentalize and separate our business practices from our ritual observance. The author concludes that we would do well to emphasize glatt yosher (total uprightness) as much as glatt kosher.
