January 30, 1976 41

A number of widely-used
stratagems which make
possible use of telephone
facilities with avoidance of
payments for such calls has
been labeled by an Orthodox
rabbinical student as viola-
tions of Jewish religious
law.
That judgment was made
by Isaac Mann, a student at
the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan
Rabbinical Seminary of
Yeshiva University, who
writes an occasional fea-
ture, "Moral Dilemma" for
Kol Yavneh, the official
publication of Yavneh, an
Orthodox college student
organization.
Each column opens with a
format of "Problem,"
"Case," and "Dilemma." The
problem in that issue was
given as "Making telephone
calls without paying for
them." The case was given
as follows: "Jacob Schwartz
wishes to tell his wife he ar-
rived safely. A one-word
message by phone is suffi-
cient. He wants to call her
person-to-person and ask
for 'Mr. Fine.' "
The dilemma: "Can Ja-
cob make this phone call?
On the one hand, he thinks
he is doing nothing wrong

since he is abiding strictly
by the rules: Namely, if
the party you seek person-
to-person is not in, you
don't have to pay for the
call. On the other hand,
Jacob is consciously
cheating the phone com-
pany of payment for a
service, since his message
is being conveyed."
Mann said, in a note
preceding his evaluation,
that he extended his
"deepest thanks" to Rabbi J.
David Bleich, professor of
philosophy and Talmud at
Yeshiva University, who re-
viewed "the- basic features
of this article with me over
the phone."
Mann added that while
Rabbi Bleich was "ines-
sential agreement with this
analysis, he bears no re-
sponsibility for the Hal-
akhic statements found
herein. Some of the issues
are very complicated and
ideally require further con-
sultation with experts."
Mann declared that such
practices as those discussed

in his review were "abso-
lutely forbidden by the To-
rah. Stealing of services,
prohibited by Halakha, is no
less" to be condemned than
"outright physical thiev-
ery." Despite the clarity of
the Halakhic stance, he
added, "we find enough" of
such stealing of services "in
our midst to warrant tho-
rough examination and ex-
posure."
