Responsibility toward the community


In an address regarding our responsibility for our covenant with Gd, Moshe tells the Jews (Devarim 29:9), 'All of you are standing here, today.'

"This teaches that even though each individual is judged separately in terms of his personal level, still, each individual influences the judgment of the whole, whether for penalty or favor."

(Netziv, Haamek Davar, Devarim 29:9)

Have a great day,
