Thank You Crooks
I have to say thank you to the latest criminals.
The newest scandal of crooks in the frum community is two brothers in Jerusalem who ran a foundation collecting money for the purpose of chessed, specifically for people with serious medical conditions and expenses. They were just arrested as it was discovered that they have been pocketing, in their own pockets, most of the money collected.
So, I have to say thank you to them. As the gemara says, it is people like this who get us off the hook for not giving enough tzedaka.
