After Madoff: An Rx for Communal Health

By Shmarya Rosenberg

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2009

The author analyzes the phenomenon of identifiably Jewish criminality that the Madoff ponzi scheme has come to personify and the role that Jewish law plays in the debate. He cites similar cases of affiliated Jews in trouble with the law and takes the Jewish community to task to stop this trend in its tracks.
