Suggested Discussion Questions:
Do you agree with Rabbi Greenberg that “the deepest confirmation of the preciousness of a human life comes when a person gives his or her own infinitely valuable life to the other”? How have your personal experiences of service supported or challenged this assertion?
Later in this article, Greenberg imagines a future in which “every Jew should set aside a portion of his/her life for gemilut chasadim (acts of lovingkindness).” Do you agree with this vision? How would you embrace that responsibility?
