True justice


"It must be understood that to be just towards man does not merely mean to be just toward hands, feet, heads or other members of the body; for they are not man, but only man's possessions.

"The essence of man, being like unto Gd, is invisible, the personality or the soul, for which the body with all its members and forces is but a tool, and at the same time the means whereby it assimilates the physical world.

"If you rob him of this tool you have robbed him of everything that belonged to him of this earth."

(R' Samshon Raphael Hirsch, Horeb paragraph 331)

Have a great day,
