My rabbi always used to say "learning Talmud is like swimming in the ocean. Learning Shulchan Aruch is like swimming in the bathtub." I was intrigued by our discussion yesterday so when I got home, I checked my copy of the Shulchan Aruch and the passages I seem to remember you quoting. This is what I found in Hoshen Mishpat: Ch.182:1 "It is forbidden to rob or steal even a trifle from an Israelite or Gentile. It is related in Tanna D'be Elijah: It is told that one said that a certain man has told him that he had wronged a non-Jew in measuring dates he had sold him. Thereafter he had bought oil for all the money he had received, and the jug broke and all the oil spilled out. Then said I: "Blessed be the Omnipresent who regards not persons. The Scripture says: "Thou shall not oppress thy neigbor nor rob him (Lev.xix,13)and robbery of a non-Jew does constitute robbery."
