Landlords and Tenants

By Jill Jacobs

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2008

In this column, part of the Sigi Ziering series on the ethics of leadership, the author discusses the ethics of renting and the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants to each other. She asserts that Jewish law reminds us to work toward housing practices in which landlords do not experience financial ruin, and in which tenants can feel safe and secure in their homes.
