A Jew dare not lie


"If you were to turn truth and justice into lies and deception you would be detested by Gd, for He could no longer acknowledge you as His image - and how could you then still claim to belong to His people and to His estate? You would have lost your human dignity, and yet still want to be a Jew? Would not Gd's Name be desecrated if He let you prosper?"

(R' Samson Raphael Hirsch, Horeb, paragraph 358, based on Deuteronomy 25:13-16)

Have a great day,
