Halacha – Jewish Law Emes is a concept that goes far beyond “reporting the facts.” In business transactions, the Torah requires us to follow certain guidelines to avoid Genevas Daas, Gezel and other such prohibitions. In addition to these guidelines however, the Torah expects us to strive for a higher level of Emes and imposes certain sanctions on those who only follow the letter of the law, but ignore its spirit. The concepts of Mi Shepara, Hin Tzedek and Mechusar Amana are broad areas with many relevant laws. Applications of these laws on a practical level are complex and remain the scope of an expert halachic authority. We will merely summarize the general idea behind these terms.
