Yeshiva student Chazon Ish in Bnei Brak renounced an inheritance of tens of millions of euros from the family business – “because the money comes from the desecration of Shabbat.” The student consulted with the rabbis and decided to refuse the money.
Portal 'Ba Haderei Haredim' published an amazing story, “the details of which have been verified, and the names of the participants are not disclosed due to the family's desire to maintain confidentiality”: A student of the yeshiva in Bnei Brak, born in France, received a huge inheritance of tens of millions of euros, but decided to give up the money, because they were associated with the desecration of Shabbat.
This story began when the student's father, a millionaire from France at the age of 80, the owner of about 20 luxury hotels, made a huge deal and, together with his two brothers, made a will . The father keeps the Torah and the covenants, but some of the heirs do not keep the Shabbat.
After the three brothers made their inheritance in the will, the student had to sign the inheritance decree as the whole family signed, but he asked the rabbis in Israel and France about the legacy that is associated with the desecration of the Sabbath, and they instructed him that, given all the sorrows associated with this, he should abandon it.
Several family members decided to try to find legal or business language that would allow him to remain in the inheritance, but he refused the money received from the desecration of Shabbat. He sent a detailed letter to his father and explained the situation, his father took these words “with great admiration and excitement”.
