The Torah commands that Jews see themselves less as individuals than as members of a community with responsibility for the welfare of others. This ethos has encouraged Jews to help their neighbors by serving in politics and contributing as philanthropists.
“My greatest desire for my children is that the world will be better for their having lived. Not great but good is what I wish them to do.”
Mina Rosenthal Weil, Wilson
