Forcing a borrower to seek employment


If a borrower defaults on a debt, the Jewish court cannot force him to seek employment in order to be able to pay off the debt. The possibility of non-payment is an accepted risk of lending money.

(Shulchan Aruch Choshen Mishpat 97:15; Sefer Meirat Einayim to Choshen Mishpat 97:29)

Have a great day,
