very religion has basic
concepts upon which
the structure of its
faith is built. Ideas that im-
part meaning to its practices.
I believe the principle fun-
damental to an understan-
ding of the totality of the
Jewish heritage inheres in
the term "mitzvah!' often
translated as "command-
ment!' sometimes as "good
deed!'
It is a mitzvah to affix a
mezuzah on the doorpost of
one's house; to kindle the
lights of the Sabbath; to give
charity to those in distress; to
study Torah. A mitzvah
defines that which is done out
of a sense of obligation to the
Almighty, a human response
to divine command, and also
our feeling of responsibility to
our fellow man.

Irwin Groner is senior rabbi

credior has to respect the feel-
ings of the debtor. Employers
have privileges, but these im-
pose obligations upon them to
provide remuneration for
their workers in a timely
fashion. Each of the laws in
the Thrah portion defines the
relationship of rights and
duties. The rights of the land

owner, the farmer, the
magistrate, the cattle dealer
and the warrior are linked
with obligations, or mitzvot.
This principle needs to be
reaffirmed in our time. The
right of parents to enjoy their
family implies a -duty - to
raise their children as best
they can. If parents wish to
see their children follow the
path of honesty and integrity,
this means they have a duty
to set such examples for their
children. Children have

LIVONIA JEWISH CONGREGATION

This perspective is in great
contrast to the legal order of
Western society. Western law
centers around the concept of
right; Jewish law addresses
the concept of duty. While
Americans have a Bill of
Rights, Judaism stresses 613
mitzvot or duties. Judaism
declares that we are to enjoy
a right only by accepting the
duties that are its conse-
quences. When we are
granted a blessing, we
assume an obligation. Thus,
when we eat, we acquire the
duty to bless the source of our
food.
This week's sidrah under-
lines this truth. When the
Torah describes the rights of
marriage, it simultaneously
outlines the obligations of
marriage. Private property is
a right as ancient as civiliza-
tion itself; at the same time,
the Torah establishes limits
on that right. For example, a
creditor has the right to
secure a pledge for his loan
from the debtor. But, even so,
the text declares that the
right is not absolute, for the
