The scandals just don't stop
Today there are 2 more cases of religious Jews being arrested for financial crimes.
Monsey couple charged with welfare fraud
A chasidish couple was arrested for stealing $75,000 from federal rent, Medicaid and food stamp programs
Mail Thieves Caught in Rockland County
2 frum guys (with 3 week beards) were arrested for stealing checks from mailboxes.
It is not hard to understand why this is happening. The Gemara in Kiddushin (30b)states:
ר' יהודה אומר כל שאינו מלמדו אומנות מלמדו מלמדו ליסטות
R' Yehuda says that whoever does not teach his son a profession is teaching him to be a robber
In many parts of the Charedi world today "work" is a 4 letter word and many people simply have no skills to make a living, therefore as the Gemara says they turn to theft.
