Does tzedaka for a sick persons medical bills/treatments come before tzedaka for a chasuna? How about either for a chasuna or just someone that can't afford food, is there a kdima to one?

Heter Iska.
I want to a balance transfer from my credit card to another person.
He will make the payments. Probably I will have him send me the money and I will pay the cc.
What type of heter iska do we need? Can someone link to a copy of what we can use?


What is the procedure?
 Can we sign and then send documents electronically?  Do we need aydim when we sign? What if one party is a woman?

Though I've had instances where I asked a LOR who declined to give any answer on the topic of Ribbis and/or Iska.

Was just discussing Ribbis/Iska with a friend, where he was contemplating borrowing from a private company that is likely owned by Jews. The twist here is that the loan is 100% secured/collateralized by liquid assets. My initial thought is that this might present a problem with a traditional חציו מלוה וחציו פקדון Iska as there is absolutely no way for the lender to lose even a penny!

A LOR would still be able to point in the right direction.

Who are you calling the lender?

Obviously, I'll ask my lor, just curious the exp. out there.

My cc was used fraudulently bestbuy.com a couple of times. Chase flagged the purchases, called me and shut the card. Long story short- some charges were removed, some stayed and were refunded and one wasn't fully refunded. I called to have it ref. and the cs rep flagged all the charges that were on the statement as fraudulent and double refunded them. Wasn't that many in the end, but I now have $114 credit on my card. Do I have to alert them to this?

Good chance they'll figure this out on their own

I don't know that book in particular, but MBSR, as well as several other forms of psychotherapy that include components of mindfulness, is completely devoid of spirituality/religion, and is appropriate for frum Jews. I use mindfulness with my patients, as do many other frum clinicians that I know.

Thanks, so as long as it's only quoting buddhist ideas outside of spirituality/religion it should be ok? i also hope to get an halachic answer as opposed to what clinicians do
