Default Re: The Talmud what a Lovely Book!

according to Choshen Mishpat 348:2

Anyone who steals even a minor amount violates the prohibition of [Leviticus 19:11] "You shall not steal" and is required to repay [the amount stolen] whether one steals from a Jew or a gentile.
meaning ther are no different statuses for being either jew or gentile

As Maimonides in , Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Gezeilah 1:2 states
And it is biblically forbidden to steal even a minor amount; even a gentile - it is forbidden to steal from him or to cheat him. And if you stole from him or cheated him you must return the stolen money or object.

professing equality between jew and gentile
