Rashi, Deuteronomy 6:18

הישר והטוב - זו פשרה, לפנים משורת הדין

The right and the good - this refers to a compromise, within the letter of the law. [AJWS translation]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Why is a compromise considered right and good? For whom is the compromise made?

2. How can we better compromise to do the right and the good, and accommodate more people?

Time Period: Medieval (Geonim through the 16th Century)
