Is there a "Jewish" way to do business? Yes, according to a new book: Ethically.

"Moral Issues of the Marketplace in Jewish Law" by Rabbi Aaron Levine, chairman of the Economics Department at Yeshiva University, illustrates the interface between halakhah (Jewish law) and economics. It is a practical guide to applying Jewish law in the no-holds-barred world of the marketplace.

Rabbi Levine uses the hallmark case-study method that has earned him recognition as a leading authority on Jewish ethics to apply abstract legal theory to the right and wrong way to conduct business in the 21st century.

In this new 650 page manual and casebook, Rabbi Levine offers analysis, guidance and workable solutions for dilemmas in key areas of today's business environment. Drawing on his wide-ranging legal scholarship and practical experience as a pulpit rabbi and rabbinic judge, Rabbi Levine examines what Jewish Law has to say about such issues as fair competition, marketing ethics, labor relations, privacy issues and public policy.
