PROBATION FOR PROFIT - Many jurisdictions in the US have turned over their probation procedures to for-profit companies collecting fines and monitoring individuals accused of minor infractions. As small fees and interest charges begin to build, people who already cannot afford their fines can end up in jail owing exorbitant amounts. "Even beyond the basic ethical conundrum of incarceration for profit, there are other fundamental faith principles" at stake, says Caroline Isaacs, a program officer for the American Friends Service Committee. "Redemption and forgiveness really are falling by the wayside when we profitize these functions."
THE REBBE'S LEGACY - Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, also known simply as the Rebbe, was the leader of the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidic movement when he died 20 years ago. Today, the movement has tripled in size and the Rebbe's many followers continue to remember him with visits to his gravesite. The Rebbe's personality and teachings were well-received by Jews and non-Jews alike, and his followers have established Chabad centers for teaching in over 80 countries around the world. "The Rebbe inaugurated the first attempt in all of Jewish history to reach every Jewish community and every Jew in the world," says his biographer, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin. "No one was regarded as insignificant."
