Short Thought:

Our hands did not spill this blood, and our eyes did not see… (21:7) But would it enter one’s mind that the elders of the court are murderers? Rather, [they declare:] We did not see him and let him depart without food or escort.

(Talmud, Sotah 45a)

The principle behind the law of Eglah Arufah is that a person is also responsible for what occurs outside of his domain — outside of the areas where he is fully in control. When a murdered traveler is found out in the field, the elders of the nearest city must go out there and bring the Eglah Arufah to atone for the crime, although it occurred “outside of their jurisdiction”; for it was nevertheless their responsibility to send the traveler off with adequate provision and protection.

The same applies on the personal level in all areas of life. A person never has the right to say, “This is outside of my element. I have no obligation to deal with this.” If it is something that, by Divine Providence, one has been made aware of, that means that there is something one can, and must, do to positively influence the end result.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)








A rabbi, a priest and a minister are discussing when life begins.

The priest says: “In our religion, life begins at conception.”

The minister says: “We disagree. We believe that life begins when the fetus is viable outside of the mother’s womb.”

The rabbi responds: “You both are wrong. In our religion, life begins when all of the children are married off.”
