The agreement was reached out of court in late March, said Eric Zagrans, a lawyer who represented the members of Oheb Zedek-Taylor Road who filed the suit, and David Schaefer, an attorney representing Oheb Zedek-Cedar Sinai’s board of trustees, who were the defendants, in an interview April 18.

Marching into Darkness: The Wehrmacht and the Holocaust in Belarus by Waitman Wade Beorn copyright 2014.

“On October 10, 1941, the entire Jewish population of the Belarusian village of Krucha was rounded up and shot. While Nazi death squads routinely carried out mass executions

on the Eastern Front, this particular atrocity was not the work of the SS but was committed by a regular German army unit acting on its own initiative. Marching into Darkness is a bone-chilling expose of the ordinary foot soldiers who participated in the Final Solution on a daily basis.” (Publisher’s Description)

By Rabbi Yirmiyohu Kaganoff (Rabbi Kaganoff.com)

In Parshas Ki Seitzei, the Torah instructs “Beyomo sitein secharo velo sa’avor alav hashemesh,” “On that day (that is, the day the work was completed) you should pay his wage, and the sun shall not set (without him receiving his payment)” (Devarim 24:15). The Torah mentions two mitzvos; a positive mitzvah (mitzvas aseh) and a negative mitzvah (lo sa’aseh) to guarantee that a worker is paid before sunset of the day that he performed his job. Thus, someone who pays his worker on time fulfills a positive mitzvah, whereas if he neglects to pay him on time and the worker demands payment, he has trangressed a lo sa’aseh.
