Community Togetherness

The value of shalom bayit – or family harmony is an important value in the Jewish community. Professor Reuven Kimelman teaches that this value is achieved when we adhere to the commandment “Love your neighbor as yourself.” It is not enough to say “I love you” or “I respect you,” to one another. Only when the other partner (or community member) feels that way, have we truly fulfilled the mitzvah. May we live and act in such a way that we can all feel the bonds of community through love and respect. It is through working together that we can achieve great things.
