WearBU Blogs: Embracing Jewish Peoplehood, Identity & Community
Love is the most compelling human characteristic a human being possesses, because of it people will climb mountains and swim across oceans. It has a way of compelling a person to do rise above their circumstances. Love is so important, that all of the 10 Commandments are based on it.

Your neighbor is more than someone who lives near you, looks like you and shares you culture or beliefs. Your neighbors are everyone.
