    I personally dont think its ok to invest in stocks being that halachically you cant gamble and i see it as one in the same thing.

    hashem has his ways of making someone rich. It can be through real estate or stocks. So the Rebbe’s answer is selective and does not reffer to everyone – as you can see that the Rebbe Maharash did make it in stocks

    I love the way all these people are speaking up now, as if they’re smarter than everyone that has been making money for years in the stock market. So, it’s hit a recession. Does that make it wrong? In another couple years when stocks skyrocket once again, are these same people going to give their smart advice? It’s interesting how they, or the Chabad web sites at least, have implicated the Rebbe in all of this. Perhaps the Rebbe advised some people to put their money elsewhere, but he never said that buying stocks, a fundamental business practice, is wrong.… Read more »

    Don’t put a טרף stamp on the stock market. there is a “gamble” to anything you do in life including every type of business! no matter what you do in business you are taking some risk and that is the gamble association.
    in real gamble there is no value to what you are gamble on and there is nothing you buy that is the reason it is considered גזל stock market is exactly what is is a market that sell you shares of businesses with potential income from every share.

    Dear Readers, First off, I don’t know why I am commenting when previous commentators have made such completely inaccurate conclusions to this article. Maybe to enlighten others, I don’t know, but a little reading comprehension folks. Anyways, I feel the article is going in a direction of responsible and irresponsible investing in addition to the spiritual aspect of stocks. To quote the Rebbe in this article, he said “I don’t hold of it”, he does not say that it is either good or bad, gambling or “tref”. Just that he does not hold of it. Lets have a philosophically consistent… Read more »
