so now that they were caught, and they admitted, and they returned the rings, what to do? since they returned the rings, does society let them off the hook? not press charges? hire them again? what would you do if these people were your household help? – – and if you’re quick to say. “i wouldn’t trust them” does that mean that in your world people once they sin are never to be trusted again? Is that what you would want or expect for yourself if you did something wrong? it’s an interesting question to me.

Not an Am Haaretz

This is a halacha that the Alter Rebbe paskens in Shulchan Oruch

They have to do teshuva bdavar chashav etc

When you do something wrong and make a mistake and then are left alone from it it’s a bit difference than if someone steals and gets away with it. Although what you’ve done may have been 100% wrong it wasn’t dangerous and putting other people at risk.

Trust is hard to gain, yet easy to lose. And once it’s lost, it’s extra hard to gain back.

Haven’t you had enough crime? Don’t you know where it comes from by now in your neighborhood? Please get smart and protect yourselves and your belongings.

People need to understand halacha, when you know someone stole and all you need to do is catch them red handed so you can force them return the genaiva, there is no lifnei iveir… and putting cash on your shelf is definitely not in the catagory of lifnei iveir …. and as far as getting them arrested anyone who is familiar with todays sad legal system would know that it is a total failure and jewelry would most likely never have been returned…. the main point is the victim who had their wedding diamond ring and wedding band returned was… Read more »

We’re talking here about “things” that were stolen – I see a far more disturbing trend – non-Jewish women, not even qualified “nannies”, obviously hired by the mothers, walking with Jewish babies in their carriages. Have we lost our marbles completely? Has convenience and (paying them less) money replaced doing what is right? Precious Jewish children left in the “care” of non-Jews. Such a fuss is made about jewelry but no-one mentions this far more serious situation.
