Rashi, Deuteronomy 24:15

ואליו הוא נושא את נפשו - אל השכר הזה הוא נושא את נפשו למות, עלה בכבש ונתלה באילן: והיה בך חטא - מכל מקום, אלא שממהרין להפרע על ידי הקורא

And he [the worker] places his life in jeopardy [for his wages] - for these wages, she places herself in mortal danger - she climbs a wall, or suspends herself from a tree. And it be a sin on you - regardless, except that punishment is swiftly dispatched when someone cries out. [AJWS translation]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. How does Rashi understand the verse "And the worker places his life in jeopardy"?

2. Who risks their lives for us today? How do we properly acknowledge and appreciate them?
