How does one compete in a exclusively Jewish market (Judaica, kosher food business etc.), in the face of issues like taking away a competitor's marupia?

    what is marupia? – kouty Sep 2 '16 at 5:52
  • Are you talking about the halachos of hasagas gvul? The details of every case would make a difference and require a psak from a local Rav who knows the halachos, the individual involved, and the local business community. As an example a store whose main business is online is different from one whose main business is from walk-in customers. Both of those differ from one whose main business is from "regulars" in the community. This might be too broad to answer as well as requiring a local Rav to pasken. – sabbahillel Sep 2 '16 at 14:29

Marupia only applies if you specifically go after a competitors exclusively loyal customers. Marupia would not apply if you advertise to the general public. Furthermore even in a case of only a Jewish business there are those to be makel on.

  • I cannot find the definition of the word marupia, what is it. – kouty Sep 15 '16 at 12:26
