Axiomatic Quote for Our Times

“Chazal tell us in Pirkei Avos [Chapters of the Fathers] that if not for fear of punishment from a governing body, civilization as we know it would collapse into chaos.” (Insight from HaRav Chaim Zev ben Avrohom Aharon HaLevi Malinowitz, ZT”L as published in a Chesbon HaNefesh pamphlet on occasion of the Sh’loshim, Kislev 5780)

A quote for 26 Kislev, to think about and ponder in our times, both in Israel and in the United States!
