About the event

Consider that in all human “groups” there is a tension between the needs and worth of an individual (or a small part of the whole) and the needs of the many (or the whole). Questions arise concerning how much a single person must be subsumed or subservient to the larger, common good. After all, most individuals require the presence of others to achieve a full life, even to survive. 

Does this interdependence generate special responsibilities — out of gratitude or indebtedness — toward the community in which one dwells? Or, perhaps it is more correct to say that a community itself is constituted by people who share moral duties toward one another, duty coming first, benefits and gratitude for them coming later. Where does Judaism place the emphasis and what might earlier thinkers offer to help us decide in our own time?
