Kosher rules on dating men
Because of our acceptance of Torah, Jews have a special status in the eyes of G-d, but we lose that special status when we abandon Torah.Furthermore, the blessings that we received from G-d by accepting the Torah come with a high price: Jews have a greater responsibility than non-Jews.Basically, reputations can be at stake with workplace dating.One final reprimand of dating in the workplace is, as the saying goes, to “leave your personal life at the door.” That certainly becomes much harder to do when your personal life comes to work with you.While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews.According to traditional Judaism, G-d gave Noah and his family seven commandments to observe when he saved them from the flood.) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d's might rather than their own ability.Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations.
Judaism maintains that the righteous of all nations have a place in the world to come.
It was not acceptable for a manager and an associate to date for several reasons. In the case of workplace ethics and liability laws, such as the potential for sexual harassment lawsuits if the relationship went sour between the two individuals, there may be claims of an abuse of power, manipulation or the manager taking advantage of their subordinate.
Furthermore, on the opposite side of that same coin, there is the potential risk of that manager doing favors and playing favorites toward the subordinate he/she was dating.
Generally, managers have some common threads when it comes to mixing business and pleasure.
Most of the time, as was my case when I worked at the Hutchinson Mall 8 Theatre some years ago, it was tolerated but frowned upon.
