Bnei Akiva / Youth Activities
responsible for actions that are unknown to us was a
short lived rule that expired when ‫ בני ישראל‬crossed the
Jordan River. [See ‫תוספות מסכת סוטה דף לד עמוד א‬
‫]ד"ה עודם בירדן‬
While the frst answer seems logical, the second answer
seems unfair. Why should I be punished for something I
am unaware of and could not have prevented? The
answer is that the second answer presupposes that we do
not only function as individuals but rather we are all
parts of ‫בני ישראל‬. As such, for better or worse, I am my
brother’s keeper and take responsibility for his actions.
As we enter ‫ראש השנה‬, it is imperative that remind
ourselves of both our personal and our communal
obligations so that we may all be inscribed for a healthy
and happy new year.

From The Rabbi's Desk
This week’s parsha introduces us to the
concept of ‫ ערבות‬- communal responsibility
– in the following statement '‫הנסתרת לה‬
‫ אלקינו והנגלת לנו ולבנינו עד עולם‬- The
secret things belong unto Hashem our God;
but the things that are revealed belong unto
us and to our children forever. Rashi
explains that we are held responsible for the actions of
our co-religionists when we know an improper action
has been done and we are not responsible for what we
don’t know about.
Based on this, the Talmud (‫)סנהדרין דף מג עמוד ב‬
discusses the case of ‫ עכן‬who violated the command not
to take from the spoils of ‫ יריחו‬resulting in communal
punishment in the form of defeat at the next battle. Why
was the community held responsible for ‫‘עכן‬s sin? The
Talmud offers two answers - either there were those who
knew about it, or the principle that we are not held
The Kiddush today is sponsored by the EDOS Women's
Auxiliary and EDOS Kiddush Fund.
