Parashat Shoftim, and the Rule of Law

Parashat Shoftim /שׁוֹפְטִיםפרשת 

    This week we read about judges, and about the rules of warfare, among other things.   The very existence of such rules indicates that there are certain levels of compassion which we are required to extend even to our enemies.  This set of laws having been written several thousand years ago, we should now be further advanced in our understanding (as I argued last year) of the need for compassion and agreement on the rule of law, no?

May we all find compassionate and inclusive community.

Last week was Parashat Re’eh, and Self Health Care

Action Items:

1.) Share your thoughts on how community can help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,
