Should Jews do business with Argentina?


Dear Rabbi,

Yes rewards a jew. So does money.

Argentina has a coin which depicts a sun. Yireh says I can not possess a coin with a graven image of the heavens.

Thus it seems Argentina was created these future years without Hashems divine providence a fate for star safe jewish business.

Right banter to criticize?


Interesting point.

The prohibition not to keep images of the sun is only when it is a full sun, and only if it will cause people to think that he is keeping it because he is worshipping it. This is not the case when someone has a coin, which is only kept temporaily, and everyone knows that it isn’t because he is worshipping it. Therefore it isn’t an issue to do business with these coins.

Best wishes


Y:D 141-4, Chochmas Adom
