From the Ethics of our Fathers

From the Ethics of our Fathers

The ancient text in the book Ethics of our Fathers (chapter 2:5) it says; “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.”

In the post I, Ariel Dagan, wanted to bring your attention to a group of Israelis who have gone out of their way, and have even put their own lives in danger, to help others. Often they do these good will actions in places where you would not think to find Israelis.

Why do they this? Perhaps it is partly to do with their Ancient Ties. Their moral connections to lessons learned from values discussed in the Mishnah ( oral tradition of Jewish law) Avot aka Pirkei Avot.

In this Hebrew/English subtitle clipyou can see first hand how this Israeli organization helps refugees around the world.

You can learn more about this Non Governmental Organization on their website and see on their media page how they are also trying to do their part in helping the more than 2 million refugees that had to flee their homes in Syria because of the current situation.

The values  demonstrated by this organization have  a direct link to the same values displayed by Abraham and passed on to his decedents who are the children of the Jewish, Islamic and Christian religions that have their origins in the Middle East.
