Mitzvah #80 - Not to be involved with interest on loans

One is forbidden to be involved with a loan between Jews that will incur interest.

This includes being a witness or guarantor for the loan.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Do not be involved in charging him interest" (Shmot 22:24)
