Re’eh: Jews Without Borders



Should the Land of Israel consider broadening its borders? What would the United Nations say about that? Would the “Nations” become more “United” if that happened? And what about us as individual Jews? Should we broaden our personal boundaries? Should we expand our horizons? There are Doctors without Borders, why not Jews without Borders? On the subject of expansion of borders, the Talmud says that only those who are expansive should eat meat? Why? The Midrash says that those who give are considered much broader than those who only take. What does any of this have to do with Rosh Chodesh Elul or, for that matter, the Labor Day weekend? A fabulous story about Sir Moses Montifore teaches us what it truly means to be wealthy, giving and expansive. Indeed, that is the calling of Israel – Israel the Land and Israel the People. This also teaches us much about borders in general, which are all over the news lately – from the Americas to Europe, from the Far East to the Middle East.
