This week the portion is Ki Tetze introducing the prohibition of taking interest on a loan. It is known by multiple names, like Ribit, but the Torah calls it Neshech which literally means “bite” for fairly obvious reasons. In modern society it is impossible to imagine a financial system without it and indeed the sages created a mechanism to get around it called “Heter Iska”. It essentially states that you are making an “investment” and thus “sharing” in assumed future profits as the standard purpose of loans tended to be for business.


In the eyes of the Torah, however, it’s particularly odious because it demonstrates a lack of faith. You are requesting a guarantee up front for these “profits” and not willing to rely on God’s guidance of your affairs.
