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.

Bnei- Akiva Denver 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. Community Events BB Kippot: The DAT high school basketball team, is pre-selling a limited quantity of the team's basket ball kippot. 1 Kippa: $12, 2 Kippot: $20.
