Be honest in your dealings with all people.

In Tractate Shabbat, 55A, we are taught, Chotamo shel Hakadosh Baruch Hu emet, that the seal of God is truth. At the beginning of the third chapter of Pirkei Avot/Ethics of Fathers, we are admonished to act prudently to avoid falling prey to sin. “Know from where you came, where you are going and before whom you will have to give an accounting.” Being honest in our dealings will, hopefully, place us in good stead when we enter the next world and have to face the Almighty.

To learn more and appreciate the breadth of wisdom contained in the Torah, print out the third chapter of Ethics of the Fathers this afternoon and join thousands of fellow Jews around the globe who will be enjoying an uplifting experience and inspired discussions this Shabbat.
