Wise Fridays: National Responsibility

“Happy is the country and happy the nation that can give an account of what it has taken from others, and more importantly, of what it has given to the heritage of all humanity. Woe to the country and nation that encloses itself within its own four cubits and limits itself to its own narrow boundaries, lacking anything of its own to contribute, and lacking the tools to receive from others.”

Rabbi Ben-Zion Uziel
